This falls under the category of "I should have asked before starting the job"! I've been painting a bedroom with latex paint and to clean the brushes/rollers/etc at the end of the day I take them to the outside sink in garden (basically just a basin with drain that leads to main drain and then out to sewer system in street). I fill a bucket with water and throw everything in, then a few hours later, I wash everything in the sink and put away. I'm noticing that the sink is starting to back up. If I leave it, and come back in 1 hour, it's drained, but it's worrying. I do throw the bucket of painty water on the garden but apparently the paint still on the rollers/brushes is still significant when I squeeze them and brush them to get paint out over the sink.
My two questions are:
How should I clean up brushes/rollers/etc that are covered in latex paint to a) get them clean and (b) not clog up my sink.
Should I worry if I've poured latex paint down sink in terms of clogging up sink? If so, what should I do about it?
