Symptoms of a blocked drain

As our summer rolls on and the easter break approaches and we get together with our family and friends, keep an eye out for some of those vital symptoms that indicate you have a slow or blocked drain.

Make it a holiday break  to remember for the right reasons,  rather than needing to call an emergency plumber to rescue you and your family from a sewer blockage.

Keep an eye out for;

The excessive rise or fall of the water level in your toilet. We call it syphoning, and it comes with a Glug Glug Glug

Slow draining water or ankle deep water in the shower or bath.

Swarms of small flies  or sewer flies around smelly drains

Your kitchen sink, waste disposal unit or dishwasher are slow to drain.

Toilet paper or dirty water around your sewer surcharge gully in the garden or yard.

Dirty water leaking from a retaining wall or garden bed that conceals sewer pipes.

These are signs of a blockage, and your pipes are trying to tell you, that all isn’t well.

When the extra guests arrive you will know because the additional load on your sewer pipes will bring any blockage to a head.

So have a look around you home for the symptoms of a blocked drain and please don’t ignore them.

If you are not sure, contact your friendly plumber for help and some drain maintenance advice.
