Putting the drain snake through the roof
nothing has worked. Any suggestions????

Re: clogged sink

Sounds like the clog is past where you are able to reach with the things you've tried. Drain cleaning liquids don't work, don't bother trying, the only way to successfully remove a clog is with a snake. If you feel confident that you can operate a 100' rental snake, then go rent one, otherwise call a plumber to come snake your lines for you. While he's there, have him snake ALL lines out to the main, this will help to make sure you have no problems into the foreseeable future. :cool:

Re: clogged sink

You didn't list "call plumber" on your list of things you've done, and as spruce said, you need to do the entire house.
