I understand too well about blocked sink. Ours freezes up when it gets cold enough. We have a portable dishwasher and hooked it up in the washroom one winter

That stinks! Especially if you have to pay him for not fixing it.

finona , i think it stinks to pay for something that didn't work. people have no pride (some people) in their work. what can we do about it? i would hate to piss him off, a single woman needs a handyman and they are hard to find. unlike the last one, this one does show up on time.

True, you do need to have a handyman. But, it still stinks!

What was the cause of the plug up? If it's tree or bush roots, you can help prevent future repeats by pouring a container of salt down the drain every 3 months or so. My Mom kept having this kind of problem until we figured out that it was the roots of a Brazilian Pepper causing the problem. We finally dug it out and killed the stump which solved the problem, but the salt trick worked until we got rid of the plant.
