This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Nest.

In this Badge Bit, you will unclog a drain with a zip tool.  (Note that this BB is part of an 8-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Jeeves List. You must complete eight Badge Bits in the Jeeves List.)



Some articles on unclogging drains
  - Zip-It Drain Cleaner
  - Zip-It Drain Cleaning Tool
  - How to Unclog a Sink
  - 10 Really Easy Ways to Unclog Drains







To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
   - you must unclog a sink with a zip tool

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
   - a before picture of the sink
   - an action shot of you unclogging sink with zip tool
   - an after picture of the sink and zip tool
   - OR a 2-minute video of you doing this
Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

This BB is a duplicate with a Plumbing BB and will be removed from the system soon.

Apparently more plastic than hair. Going to guess something from a youngster.

I zipped my sink and I wanted to share the experience with my friends.  Enjoy.

Here is the undraining drain.



Here is me using the zipper tool.  It has smaller teeth than some because my drain is tiny and has a narrow throat that is split into four by a divider thingie.  



I'm so glad I don't have a thread going in the Permies Singles forum right now.

We're a little slow on the uptake.  Maybe our drain is clogged.  We now realize this BB is in two badges and shouldn't be.  It will be removed soon and any past approvals will be grandfathered for Nest.
