Signs You Have a Blocked Drain

Some of the signs below could indicate that your home is suffering from a blocked drain. Hopefully our blog post will give you a better understanding of what to look out for. To get in touch with us, see our contact details at the bottom of the page.

Raised Water Levels in Your Toilet

To begin this blog post, we want to mention raise water levels in your toilet. If you've noticed that, once flushed, the water in toilet in your property has risen, it could be an indication of a blocked drain or other drain problems. This said, if the levels of water overflow out of the toilet, this could indicate a very serious issue that your drains are experiencing. 

Unusual Sounds are Noticeable 

Noticeable unusual sounds such as Gurgling could mean that your drains are suffering from trapped air. When running water, these sounds may be noticeable, as it could indicate that the air is escaping from your drain. These sounds will be occurring from drains and plug-holes in your home, so make sure to consider this if you believe there is a blockage in your drains.

Unpleasant Odours are Occurring from your Drains

If your home is suffering from a blockage in the drains, you may notice unpleasant odours and smells occurring. This could be due to food debris becoming stuck within the drainage, causing an unpleasant smell. These unpleasant odours may be much more obvious if the taps have been running.
