Bathroom sink

Please help me, I can't afford a plumber! I have replaced the pipes under the sink but now the sink will not drain. What happened? I've checked to make sure that there are no obstructions but it still won't drain unless I take off the pipes and drain it into a bucket! HELP!

If there was a time delay between the time you took the piping off and replaced it, what happens is the gunk inside of the piping will crust up, dry and flake off inside the pipe, thus causing a restriction.

Then when you start to use the piping it clogs causing the problem you might be having.

Buy one of those hand crank drain cables in a small drum and clear the obstruction. If you have older piping like galvanized, you might have a difficult time clearing the drain.
