There is rusty water in both sides of my kitchen sink and water does not drain and stays in the sink.
You probably need to have the drain line professionally cleaned. These lines get clogged with grease, and food particles. Eventually the build up is so thick that the internal diameter of the drain is reduced and water cannot pass quickly through the pipe, total stoppage may occur. MR. EXPERT Plumbing enzyme product regular treatment will eat away the grease and biological scum inside the pipes and extend the time between cleanings.
Our two bathroom sinks drain very slowly and water comes up in the other sink. What could be the problem?
When the drainage from one fixture backs up into another, it means that the two lines are connected on one branch line before it enters the main drain. Water always seeks its own level so it will come up in a lower fixture or another sink at the same level if the branch line connecting the fixtures has a blockage after the connection. Sink lines get filled up with lint, hair and soap scum from the fixtures. As the water goes down the drain, a film is left on the inside of the piping, eventually building up so thick that they reduce the internal diameter of the drain and slow the water flow. A hand snake is designed to open minor clogs in small traps or branch lines. A hand snake can punch a hole in a clog, but it is often like punching a hole in jello. The sludge builds up so thick, when you pull the snake back the sludge just fills back in. Hand snakes are not designed to open piping under the floor, so if the clog is there, you'll need a plumber. Once the line is cleaned you can use an enzyme-type drain cleaner like MR. EXPERT Plumbing
enzyme Drain clean Product to eat away biological material and prevent it from sticking to the inside of the piping, which keeps the line open and flowing. You can buy this from MR. EXPERT Plumbing

My Toilet doesn't flush everytime we use it and the water flows to the top. It doesn't overflow, but water rises to the top and takes a while to go down, then it bubbles.
Gurgling or bubbling is an indication of a blocked branch line off the stack or main drain or a blocked vent. When water goes into a pipe, it pushes the air through and if there is no place for the air to go, it comes up the trap of the fixture or another fixture. The line needs to be cleaned to remove the blockage. If the blockage is far down the line, a hand snake may not have the power and the proper end to open up the pipe. Liquid drain cleaners don't work on long horizontal pipe sections, because the cleaners settle on the bottom of the pipe and clean only the lower portion of the pipe.
