HOW TO TELL IF YOUR DRAIN IS BLOCKED
A blocked drain cause both stress and can create unwanted costs.
There are however several early signs of a blocked drain
Which if identified soon enough can prevent further damage to any pipes, drains and general areas.
Signs associated with a blocked drain can include:
Unpleasant odours coming from drain
Blocked drains tend to emit foul/ unpleasant odours.
Drains can become blocked due to food debris stuck in the pipes.
As the food slowly decomposes it creates a noticeably bad smell, which appears worse if the tap has been turned on.
If there is a blockage present in the pipe, any water will drain slowly.
The water has to filter through or around the blockage creating a sluggish flow.
Raised water levels
The easiest way to detect a toilet blockage is if when flushed your toilet water level rises higher than normal.
However if water rises to the point of overflowing, there could be a much more serious issue within your drains.
If any strange gurgling sounds are heard from drains and plug holes, this could be a sign of a blockage.
The gurgling sound indicates that there is trapped air in the drain, and is escaping when you run water.
