3 Signs of a Blocked Drain

It’s important to notice the early signs of a blocked drain before it turns into a major plumbing issue in your home.

Often residential and commercial property owners don’t realise that there is a problem, and next thing they are calling us about no dig drain repair, no dig water line replacement or no dig sewer repair. While we are always happy to help, we know that most property owners would prefer that it not get to the stage where their drains are fully blocked.

WHAT CAUSES BLOCKED DRAINS LOGAN?

There is a lot of potential for things to go wrong when you consider that each toilet, sink and shower, is connected to your drainage system. Over time an accumulation of food scraps or fat from a kitchen sink, a build-up of hair in the shower, or even foreign things being flushed down the toilet can all lead to blocked drains. It’s at times like these that we recommend calling a local drain expert rather than just a general plumber.

3 SIGNS OF A BLOCKED DRAIN

1. SLOW DRAINAGE IN YOUR HOUSE OR PREMISES (EG SHOWER, BATH, SINKS OR TOILET)

Over time, the diameter of your drainage pipes becomes constricted from collecting a lot of hair, grime, soap and other gunk building up into a thick layer or ‘fatberg’. This effectively slows the progress of water draining and unless dealt with, could eventually clog up altogether leading to backing up of the contents – not pleasant!

2. TOILETS THAT BACK UP INSTEAD OF DRAINING AWAY

If your toilet is not flushing due to a blockage in your drain, it could be caused by too much toilet paper, or the wrong items being flushed down such as baby wipes, make-up wipes, tissues, sanitary or toilet wipes, tampons and sanitary pads.

If ignored, this could lead to a major blockage and suddenly it’s a plumbing emergency, and could cause major damage to your premises.

3. DRAINS THAT GURGLE

This is a sign of trapped air caused by blockages in your pipes, thanks to a build-up such as grease, oil and food in your drain. Another reason that could cause gurgling in your drain pipes is damage to the sewer line.
