Six Signs You Have Clogged Blocked Drains

Six Signs You Have Clogged/Blocked Drains

For most homeowners clogged drains are a common thing, but apart from being a huge inconvenience it can be damaging to your plumbing system wreaking havoc on your drains and pipes. Today we are focusing on what signs to look out for if you suspect that you have any clogs, foreign particles or tree roots in your drainage system. We get blocked drains Adelaide calls from homeowners who have these frequently occurring drain issues:

Signs That a You Have Clogged/Blocked Drains

  1. Slow drainage: While slow drainage is frustrating, it is also an indicator there is something blocking the flow of water in your drains. Showers/sinks should only take a couple of seconds to empty – with no bubbles or overflow but if your bathroom or kitchen drains have an obstruction. It would mean that water would flow very slowly causing slow drainage or complete blockage over time. However, a slow drain doesn’t always mean debris, grease or fat obstructions – it could also be tree root infiltration. Get your local Adelaide plumber to inspect your slow drains and diagnose the actual cause of the problem.
  2. Gurgling sounds from drains: If your drains gurgle after you take a shower, or wash dishes in the kitchen sink, there is probably a partial blockage somewhere along the sewer line. Sewer line blockages can cause bathroom or kitchen drains to gurgle. If you have gurgling drains in your house, then attend to it sooner than later otherwise the blockage could worsen and cause your sewer lines to get completely blocked resulting in nasty overflowing sewer water from drains.
  3. Sewer backups: If clogs or blockages have grown considerably in the drains causing significant obstruction it can cause sewage to back up.
  4. Puddles of contaminated water in the yard: if tree roots have infiltrated the underground drains that can widen the crack/leak and cause puddles of wastewater to form in your yard.
  5. Sinkholes in the yard: tree roots invasion in drains and pipes can lead to sinkholes in your yard which can lead to structural damage to your home’s foundation. Underground leaking water caused by cracks and leaks in pipes and drains is one of the most common causes of sinkhole formation on your property.
  6. Bad odours in the kitchen/laundry/bathroom/toilet: damage to the sewer pipe caused by blockages can result in bad odours inside or outside your home.
