Signs of a Clogged Drain

If you have a clogged drain, you want to take fast action. In addition to creating an immediate plumbing problem, an untreated clogged drain could lead to long-term damage to your pipes. There are a few clear signs that can suggest you have a clogged drain.

  • Pooling or slow draining water. The first thing you should be looking for is water where you don’t normally see it. If water is pooling around your shower drain, or any drain for that matter, this is often a sign that the drain is clogged to some degree.
  • Bubbling toilet or kitchen plumbing. You can also keep an eye out for toilet bubbling, which can indicate a clogged bathroom drain. This is a phenomenon where you turn on your bathroom faucet and your toilet water lets out some bubbles. You might find a similar phenomenon in your kitchen, where turning on your dishwasher or washing machine can cause gurgling in your sink. If your drain is clogged, it will often be accompanied by a rotting food smell.

Common Reasons for a Clogged Drain

Drains can clog for a number of reasons. The most obvious is that foreign objects have gotten caught in the pipes. Things like hair, large pieces of food, or other debris can lodge themselves in your pipes and clog the drain.

However, your drain can also clog simply because of a lack of maintenance. Mineral deposits and rust can accumulate in your pipes, creating or contributing to a drain clog problem.
