    Please correct the following sentence:

    The sink is plugged and the water in the sink won't go away.
    The water is over flow in the sink because the sink is plugged.
    If a toilet is plugged, it won't flush.

    Instead is it possible to say

    1) Owing to the sink is plugged the water can't drain out.

    2) The water's overflowing due to the sink is plugged. or maybe
    3) The water's overflowing due the sink is plugged to.
