Blocked Drains

Signs your drains are blocked

A blocked drain causes unnecessary stress and hassle, as well as creating unwanted costs. As there are several signs of a blocked drain, you can easily identify these issues and if dealt with in proper time, can prevent even more damage to pipes and household areas.

Are you experiencing slow draining water? You may have blocked drains and if this is the case, you should contact a qualified plumber to deal with your problem.

Unpleasant Smells

Blocked drains often emit distasteful and foul odours, especially if the cause of the blockage is due to food debris. As food decomposes, a bad smell is created which can be made worse if the tap is turned on.

Slow Drainage

If you do have a blockage, any water draining will drain slowly as the water will have to filter around the block which leads to a sluggish flow.

Gurgling Sounds

If you hear of any strange sounds, such as gurgling, you may have blocked drains. If so, this will be heard from drains and plug holes. Find out more.

A gurgling sound is created when there is trapped air in the drain that escapes when you turn the water on.

Raised Water Levels

Does the water in your toilet bowl raise higher than normal? This is one of the biggest signs of a blocked drain. However, if the water rises to the point of almost overflowing, there could be an even bigger problem with your drains.
