It can ruin your whole day… or longer if your plumber’s busy. A blocked sink can paralyse a home, unless of course you’re skilled at DIY.
You roll up your sleeves, take your toolbox and start to work, dismantling the siphon, flushing out whatever’s blocking the pipes. Then you try to reassemble it all, hoping you will not end up with spare parts in your hand. Belgium company, LML Pipes, decided there’s got to be a better way to unblock a sink.
“We started with a simple thought: How can we improve the functionality of a siphon?” says Jos Mertens, LML’s chief design engineer.
