1: Water That Drains Slowly

Water that drains slowly is one of the most typical indications of a blocked pipe. There is a blockage in the pipes if you observe that your washbasin, bathtub or shower is draining slowly. Usually, an accumulation of debris, including food particles, soap scum, and hair, is the culprit.

Solution: To clear the blockage, consider using a plunger. If that doesn't work, you can break up and clear the debris with a drain snake. Alternatively, you can get assistance from a qualified plumber to remove the obstruction.

2: Bad smells

Foul odours coming from your washbasin or toilet are another indicator of a blocked drain. This is typically brought on by a buildup of organic material that decomposes in the pipelines, such as hair or food refuse.

To eliminate the odours, pour baking soda and vinegar into the toilet. Alternatively, you can hire a licenced plumber or use an industrial drain cleaner to clear the obstruction.

3. Water is backing up

If water is backing up in your washbasin, bathtub or commode, you have a blocked drain. Typically, a blockage in the primary sewer system is to blame for this.

Solution: Contact a qualified plumber immediately to locate and remove the obstruction. Your plumbing system might become even more damaged if you try to clear the block yourself.

4: Gurgling Sounds

Gurgling sounds emanating from your drain or washbasin are an indication that there is a blockage in the pipes. Debris accumulation or partial blockage in the pipes are the typical culprits.

Solution: Consider using a plunger or drain snake to clear the obstruction. You should contact a licenced plumber if this doesn't remove the block.

5: Several blocked drains

If you have several clogged pipes in your house, you have a plumbing problem. Typically, a blockage in the primary sewer system is to blame for this.

Solution: Contact a qualified plumber immediately to locate and remove the obstruction. Your plumbing system might become even more damaged if you try to clear the block yourself.
