Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. Do you have a snake to snake the drain out? The best way to remove the blockage is to snake it out. Pouring chemicals is the worst way to remove blockages as it will eventually make the problem much worse. There is a sink snake at Lowes and Home Depot that would certainly do the trick.
