Default Waste backflow and clogged sink

Hi All, Our basement kitchen sink seems to have a major backflow and/or clogging issue.**

The sink will gurgle at times and bring up a very foul smelling waste.

It seems it might be more than a simple clogging issue as it happens without any liquid in the sink.* The problem seems further down the line.

It is not happening constantly.* In the beginning, it was smaller less foul smelling black waste.

It has been happening for at least 3 weeks and only in the basement kitchen sink.

We've tried using the drain cleaner (pictured) as advised, and also by trying toilet and sink plungers (pictured) the drain seems to be heavily clogged now.

Id dump a few more bottles of drain cleaner down it and see if that works. Follow that up with heavy plunging

get a few canisters of spray foam and put that down the toilet, it will expand and push the clog away, the same for the kitchen sink..works everytime..

I guess reading the picture on the bottle takes a university diploma.

Doesn't the picture with bones say something??

Don't call me to have that thing unclogged, I'm not burning my clothes and going to the hospital for this kind of dumb @ss remedy.

What you need is a blow bag. Take the trap off the bottom of the sink to use it. It attaches to a garden hose and will expand in the pipe to make a seal and blast water down it to blow out the clog. You can get them from amazon in several different sizes.
