A Clogged Drain's Warning Signals

  • A sink drain starts to back up with water.
  • Shower drains develop water pools all around them.
  • After creating pools, water drains quite slowly.
  • When the bathroom sink faucet is turned on, the toilet water bubbles.
  • After using the dishwasher or washing machine, the drains start to gurgle.
  • Water collects in little pools on the floor next to the sink or bathtub.
  • The space around the kitchen sink is filled with the scent of rotting food.
  • A clogged sewer drain is indicated by sewage odors coming from one or more drains.

Can I unblock a drain myself?

You can attempt to unblock a drain yourself if the blockage is minor and easily accessible. There are a few methods you can try, such as using a plunger, a drain snake, or even simple household items like baking soda and vinegar. However, if these methods do not work and the blockage persists, it's wise to call in a professional plumber to assess the situation and resolve the issue.

DIY methods should be attempted with caution, as improper techniques or tools can result in further damage to your plumbing system, ultimately leading to more expensive repairs.

How do you unclog a deep drain?

Unclogging a deep drain requires professional tools and expertise. A plumber will use a specialized drain snake, also known as an auger, to reach deep into the pipe and dislodge the blockage. In some cases, a video inspection of the drain is conducted using a camera to precisely locate the clog and determine its severity. Once the blockage has been identified, the plumber will decide on the most effective method to remove it. In extreme situations, hydro jetting or even pipe replacement may be necessary to resolve the issue.

What are the common causes of clogged drains?

Clogged drains can be caused by various factors, including the buildup of hair, soap scum, grease, dirt, and debris. Foreign objects and kitchen waste, such as food particles, coffee grounds, rice, and pasta, can also lead to blocked drains. In some cases, tree roots infiltrating the pipes, pipe corrosion, or pipe misalignment can cause blockages.
