Having an issue with the kitchen sink beginning yesterday. Went to run the garbage disposal and water went everwhere. Realized at this point there was also water in the bottom of the dishwasher (I never use). Scooped out the water from the dishwasher and began alternately plugging and plunging each side of the disposal and sink. Water goes down the sink but within a minute or so, begins to come up in the disposal. Partial clog in the draing pipe? The only thing I use the disposal for is egg shells and I just read that it's not good to put egg shells in the disposal.... Is it safe to us a small amount of Drano in the sink to unplug the partial clog? Can that damage my plumbing? I am not feeling confident about disconnecting these plastic pipes to look for a clog. Here's a pic of the plumbing beneath my sink, if that can add any insight....

You have a clog down the line. A pro drain plumber with the right machine will take care of it. Don't use chemicals.
