I have a 81 year old house, and I've just installed a garburator into the kitchen sink. This drain is shared with the laundry tub, and the clothes washer, which are in the basement. I've noticed that whenever I garburate potato skin the drain backs up into the laundry sink, but drains very slowly though. I've snaked (25ft) it from the clean out in the basement floor.

Are there any products that can clean the drain of years of built up? (Don't say stop using the garburator!!) What does it mean when there is a gulping noise when draining? Will running a water hose do to flush out the drain pipe?

Thank you,
