The Signs of a Clogged Drain
Clogged drains are usually the result of buildup of blockages over time, not just a one-time issue—although many plumbers may treat it as a one-time issue. As a result, most people don’t respond to the signs of a clogged drain until the clog is completely choking the pipe.
Here are the early signs of a drain clog:
- Water returns from drain
- Water pools around drain before leaving
- Very slow draining
- Constantly-running toilet
- Drain makes a gurgling noise
- Puddles of water form near tub
- The kitchen drain smells of rotting food
However, before you call a plumber, there may be things you can do to prevent a backup. All we ask is that you do not continue using a chemical drain cleaner, especially if you’ve used them frequently before. Chemical drain cleaners can result in corroded pipes and future damage to your system.
What You Can Do to Clear a Clog in Its Early Stages
- Plunge the drain: Use a plunger in your shower, toilet, or sink. For sinks, make sure you plug the overflow hole or the secondary drain with a wet rag.
- Use a flange plunger: For toilets, this may be more effective at clearing a clog.
- Employ a bent wire: You can use a bent wire to manually pull up the clog.
