Common signs of a Blocked Drain

While there are several different reasons for drain blockages, starting with easier ones like hair or soap build-up, to more complicated and expensive issues such as tree root blockages that can not only block drains but burst pipes as well, there's always a way to tell which issue you're dealing with before you take any measures.

Proper inspection and diagnosis of the issue will allow you or your plumber to address the issue using the proper methods and supplies rather than shooting in the dark. 

Whether you have a blocked kitchen sink drain, a blocked toilet, or issues with other drain pipes, here are some of the ways you can use to tell whether or not you're having a drainage problem.

These common signs will help you learn how to do a proper drain inspection so you can catch the problem before it escalates and does any further damage.

1.  Slowly draining

If your sink or tub drains slowly and fills up with water much easier, this could be one of the first signs of a blocked drain. The primary culprits in this situation are most commonly soap scum, hair and oily substances which can easily build-up in your drains and block them.

2. Gurgling sounds

If you hear a gurgling sound when water passes through the drains this may indicate a build-up in the drain that's trapped air somewhere within the drainage system. This might be a more serious issue than a simple clog and might require the use of professional tools such as a jetter or a snake depending on what's causing the problem.

3. A bad smell

If you notice an unpleasant smell coming through in your kitchen or bathroom, you may be dealing with a clog.

4. Your toilet backs up

If your toilet backs up when you flush it, you are probably dealing with a blockage somewhere along the drainage system. This may be caused by flushing feminine products, baby wipes, or even larger items such as children's toys, diapers, dead pets (ex. goldfish) and so on.

If your drainage problem is more severe and requires the use of a drain camera, a jetter or a drain machine, you should consider hiring professional plumbing services especially if the situation calls for specialized equipment and drain repairs. Our experienced plumbers will be able to address any type of drain issue using the latest technology and their unmatched expertise and knowledge.

Frequently asked questions

What can I pour down a drain to unclog it?

Some of the best non-toxic drain cleaners that you can make yourself from readily available ingredients in your home include a mixture of boiling water and dish soap, baking soda and vinegar, salt, borax and vinegar, and salt and baking soda. All of these solutions work well when it comes to removing grease, hair and gunk build-up from your clogged drains.

Will bleach unclog a drain?

While it's not the most commonly recommended solution for clogged drains, if used in moderation, diluted bleach is safe to use on your drains. It will not only clean them, but disinfect and deodorise your clogged drains. Use this method if you're connected on the public sewer system only, not if you use a septic tank or a well.

What is a natural drain unclogger?

Natural drain uncloggers are non-toxic, natural solutions used to unclog drains. Some of the most commonly used natural uncloggers include a mixture of baking soda and vinegar, salt and water, borax, salt and vinegar, and baking soda and salt. As you can see, there are a ton of possible combinations you can try out, so you can clear your drains using easily available, inexpensive and non-toxic ingredients.

What do plumbers use to unclog drains?

Depending on the particular situation and the cause of the clog, plumbers may use a drain cleaning solution, or a drain cable, also known as a drain snake which can be used manually or connected to a drill. If nothing works they may resort to using a high-pressure pump to get rid of more stubborn blockages and clogs.

Does salt and boiling water unclog drains?

One of the ways to clear out a drain clog is to pour a cup of salt down the drain, let it sit for a few minutes to break down the clog and flush out the clog and built-up gunk with hot boiling water. If this method doesn't work, you can try using a mixture of baking soda and vinegar before taking more drastic measures.

Why does my drain keep clogging?

There are several reasons why your drains keep clogging. One of the main reasons why you're experiencing this problem might be because you or your family members are flushing down items that aren't degradable down the toilet. If you're living in an older house, and have older pipes, you may experience these kinds of problems more frequently because older pipes clog more easily. Other reasons why your drains keep clogging may include plugged plumbing vents, mineral build-up and three root growths that have caused pipe damage.
