Angry Slow draining sink and tub, HELP...

Ok, here's my issue's. I had a back-up in the basement drain, had a service com and clean mainline. No more back-up problems. However I thought it would cure my Bathroom sink and tub slow draining problems, that is not the case. Got on the roof and insured the vents were clear of clogs. Tub Drains slowly, the sink fills faster than it can drain, can't keep up. Once it gets about 3/4 full it gurggles and spits water out of the sink air hole in the sink bowl. Anyone had this problem. What can I do. Please HELP...

Try an enzyme drain cleaner such as Draincare. Enzyme cleaners cling to the clog and "eat" it, unlike caustic drain cleaners that eat a small hole and run down the drain. About $8 at Home Centers and Walmart, it is a jug with many applications. Follow the label directions. Safe for septic systems also.
You could also snake the drainlines out. Good luck.
