Signs of a Blocked Drain Pipe

A blocked drain pipe may take some time to accumulate and become fully visible, but the moment it has begun to take its damage, it will become evident quickly. You’ll be able to take action fast and fix the problem as soon as possible if you’re intentional of the evidence and signs of a blocked drain to watch out for. Our skilled plumbers at Rooter Team, a professional clogged drain business, will ensure that your problems are revealed. 

The Sights

Slow draining toilets, showers, baths, or sinks is a tell-tale sign of a blocked drainpipe. If a blockage is nasty, though, water may not drain entirely. If one fixture is clogged only, the problem is likely with a pipe related to that appliance. However, if most of them are blocked, the problem is possibly connected to the sewer drain. Likewise, if flushing the toilet urges water to rise in the shower or running taps provoke water to increase in the toilet, the problem is a blocked drain. That’s also true if some water-based appliances are creating water to appear elsewhere when they are used, so keep an eye on your property’s external drains for signs of growing water. A thorough diagnosis of a clogged drain assures a quick and effective remedy.

The Odours

One of the most common symptoms of an underlying problem is any foul odours that you start to smell. That is a total giveaway for a blockage — if something has clogged the drain and began to decay, you will undoubtedly notice. However, the foul odour may develop before any visual signs appear. Therefore any strange scents in the house that are difficult to detect should not be ignored. It’s best to call a blocked drain plumber if there’s a lot of debris. We utilize a Snake Machine to clean the pipe walls and remove the waste causing the problem.

The Unusual Noises

Ultimately, if your fixtures and pipes are making unusual noises, this could indicate a blockage. Early warning signals include whooshing or gurgling noises from toilet flushes, drains, plug holes, and pipes; these noises are produced as air held in the lines by the obstruction is dislodged and forced up through the system.
