Detecting a blockage in your drains early on can drastically reduce any damage caused by the blockage. So how do you know if you have a blocked drain?
The majority of blockages become obvious over time, but an early sign to look out for is gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from your drainage or your toilet when water is in use (often accompanied by a foul smell).
Others early signs of blocked drains include: water level changes i.e. the water level in your toilet might be rising above or falling below its normal level, outside drains overflowing (especially after a washing machine or dishwasher has been running) or you might experience internal drainage overflows such as slow waste draining in the shower or bath.
If you suspect your drains are blocked – they probably are. The best thing you can do for your drains is to contact a professional who will inspect the pipeline and resolve the blockage as quickly and efficiently as possible.
