 Common Drain Problems

Drain lines and systems are built to be resilient and can last for decades without any major problems. However, like all things, these lines do have a set lifespan and eventually, they’ll succumb to regular wear and tear. Some drain problems are more common than others and here’s a list of a few of them.

1. Slow Drains

Slow drainage is one of the most common drain problems and it can be caused by the smallest clogs. You can repair them with over-the-counter drain clearing agents and chemicals but it’s always a better idea to hire a plumber to do the job. Over-the-counter agents can be quite corrosive and damage the drain lines if they’re not used properly. Plumbers will examine your system and determine the best solution for the problem before they carry out the repairs.

2. Recurring Clogs

Recurring clogs can be a pain to deal with, especially if they happen too often. These clogs occur when hair, solids, and soap particulars stick to the walls and joints of the drainage system and aren’t cleared properly. The clogs will keep happening repeatedly if they’re not cleared completely. The best way to deal with them is to let a plumber handle the problem. They’ll clear the drain completely and make sure the water flows without any obstructions. This would ensure the clogs don’t happen again anytime soon.

3. Multiple Clogs

Multiple clogs are an indication of a deeper problem. If your toilet, bathtub, and sinks drain slowly, it’s likely that there’s a blockage in the main drain pipes of sewers. You need to call a plumber to assess this problem and perform thorough repairs. The plumber will have to evaluate the entire system to determine the cause. Multiple clogs take time and skill to repair and so it’s not a DIY job. A professional plumber will make sure all clogs are cleared and your system is running efficiently before they consider the job done. Over-the-counter cleaners or even drain snakes don’t be able to handle the problem.

Other common drain problems include foul odor, water flooding, rattling and gurgling noises, etc. All of these require professional attention so if you want to repair the problem completely, you should hire a skilled plumber.
