What Are Some Signs That My Drain Is Blocked?

Greater Sydney Plumbing is here to help you diagnose and unblock your drain. But how do you know if you have a blocked drain? These are some telltale signs of a block drain:

1. Slow draining water - if water is taking longer than usual to drain from your basin, bathtub or shower, then it's likely that your drain is partially blocked.
2. Water backing up - if water starts coming up through your floor drains or toilet, then this is a sure sign that your main sewer line is blocked.
3. Foul odors - as the water backs up, it can start to produce unpleasant smells. If you notice any unusual smells emanating from your drains.
4. Sinkholes - if you have a lawn or garden, you may start to notice sinkholes appearing. This occurs when stormwater or sewage starts to back up and escape through the soft ground, causing the surface above to collapse.
5. Chronic flooding - finally, if your home experiences regular flooding, this could be a sign that your drains are unable to cope with the volume of water coming through them.

Sometimes the signs of a blocked drain aren’t apparent until, over time, you hear the weird gurgle noises coming from your pipeline somewhere. The main reason that blocked drains occur are tree roots or grease build-up.
