Re: Possible AAV failure? Well I borrowed a pair of channel locks from a neighbor and got it off, that didn't help but looking down the pipe the AAV was screwed into I saw a huge glob of stuff where the sink drains enters. I took it all apart and found the pipe from the p-trap to the drain stack half full of nasty gunk. I have no idea how that stuff wasn't in the p-trap but it was clean so I figured the rest of the pipe was too. Anyway after a good cleaning its all working. How can I keep that stuff from clogging the pipes up?
said by slowdrain :You do whatever you can from keeping the stuff from going down the drain in the first place.

Some clogs you can avoid/prevent, others you can't do much to avoid.
Well it wasn't hair or anything else I could really prevent. It was a thick gelatin like substance. Anyway thanks for the help! I guess all it needs is a little routine maintenance.
