The drains & sewers on your property carry a lot of waste every single day; they are a very important component of your plumbing system. However, since they are out of sight, they also tend to be out of mind and we don’t really pay too much attention to maintaining them, unless something really goes wrong with them. It’s true that well-installed drainage systems won’t really give way that easily, the fact also is that they do have to endure a great deal of wear and tear.
Debris, food remnants, oil, grease, hair as well as small objects can get into the drains. Over time, these can easily collect in certain parts of the drain and create a clog. In case any tree roots have infiltrated the pipes, those add to the problem and create a kind of net in which all these things get caught and they create an even more stubborn block.
If this problem isn’t addressed on time, it eventually escalates to such a point that it starts blocking the drain completely, which in turn leads to a backup in the kitchen and bathroom sinks as well as in the shower and tub areas. The one thing to keep in mind is that drainage issues may seem like they crop out of the blue, but that really isn’t the case. The blockage build-up is always slow and there are always signs of it. At times, the water in the sink or shower will drain very slowly, and you find that you are clearing that out just too often with a plunger.
Signs of a drain blockage
While that may work for some time, the system is actually indicating that there is a problem and that you need to attend to it instead of waiting till the issue becomes severe and you have to call in a 24/7 emergency plumber to fix the issue for you. If you find that the drainage shows any signs of a block, its best to call in a local plumber without delay. The things you should be looking out for are:
- Slow drainage
- Flooding from the floor drains in the bathroom, the basement or the utility room
- Standing water in the sink or bathtub
- Clogged toilets
- Rotten egg-like smell coming from the drains
- Backed-up water
- Gurgling sounds even when drains aren’t in use
