Having Problems With Your Drains In Murrumba Downs?
How Do I Know If I’ve Got A Blocked Drain?
There are a number of ways you can identify whether or not you’ve got a blocked drain. First of all, an unpleasant smell being emitted from a drain is a clear sign of a blockage. Drains can develop blockages due to food debris getting lodged in the pipes. As the food begins to decompose it generates a markedly bad smell, which will get even worse if the tap has been switched on.
Slow drainage can also indicate a blocked drain. If there is a blockage sitting in the pipe, all water will drain very slowly. The water has to strain through or around the blockage creating a slow-moving flow.
You should also keep an ear out for strange noises. If any unusual gurgling noises are emitted from drains, this is likely to be an indication of a blockage. The bubbling sound shows that there is trapped air in your drain and that it is escaping when you turn on water.
Toilets show different signs to sink or shower drains. The quickest way to identify a blocked toilet is if your toilet water rises higher than normal when flushed. If you notice water rising so high that it is overflowing, there is obviously a much bigger issue with your drains to be dealt with.
