Do you have a blocked drain?

Have you ever tried to flush your toilet only to have it overflow onto the floor??? Or a sinkful of water that suddenly won’t drain? This is a nightmare scenario for most homeowners! The bathroom and kitchen sink are usually subject to continuous abuse with food scraps, hair, soap and other items being washed down the drain!

Fortunately, there are usually tell tale signs of a blocked drain before they fail completely causing disaster in the home! By recognising these early symptoms of a blocked drain, you can get professional help before a more serious problem develops.

  1. Slow draining – Is your sink or tub taking a long time to drain? If it is, you probably have a blockage.
  2. Foul odours – Is there a bad smell around drainage pipes? If there is a clog in the drain, hair, water and other debris can accumulate behind the clog. The decomposing solids and stagnant water can cause a bad smell to be detected around your drain pipes.
  3. Gurgling sounds – A drain that is blocked locally will often cause the effected fixture to gurgle as the water drains.
  4. Changes in flush – You may notice water levels in your toilet rise higher when you flush. This may be a sign that you have a blocked drain.
