5 Signs Your Drain May Clog Soon


drain cleaning offerA drain clog is one of the most common plumbing issues homeowners will experience. Sometimes, a clogged drain is more than a mere annoyance, though. A single clog, if left unattended, could lead to havoc across your plumbing system. You could even experience a burst pipe. If you notice the signs early enough, though, you can reduce problems and save yourself money on costly repairs. It’s all a matter of diagnosing the symptoms.

5 Signs to Watch For

  • If you notice a foul smell coming from the shower, tub, sink, or toilet. That smell is typically sewage that cannot properly drain.
  • If multiple drains in the house are slow, a clog may be present or occur soon. All drains in your home are connected to the same sewer line. When you have a clog, all drains may be affected.
  • The water level in your toilet may rise or lower for seemingly no reason. These changes to water pressure are often telltale signs of something wrong.
  • Gurgling noises from one drain while running another is a sign of something wrong with the pipes.
  • Your sewer clean out may expel water upward or out. The clean out is typically a covered, upright pipe that plumbers use to clear a clog in the sewer line. If water is flowing upwards, the line is blocked.

A Word of Warning

If you have already established a clog or potential clog, do not use any water. You’ll simply be adding to the problem and causing undue pressure or potential leaks. It’s best to call for professional service simply. The right plumber can remove a clog and help prevent future issues, too.
