Signs you may have blocked pipes.
Blocked pipes can lead to a range of plumbing problems. Keep an eye out for these signs that may suggest you have blocked pipes:
- Slow Drainage: Water in sinks, bathtubs, or showers drains noticeably slowly.
- Gurgling Sounds: Unusual gurgling or bubbling sounds come from drains when you use water fixtures or appliances.
- Foul Odours: A persistent, unpleasant odour emanates from drains, indicating a blockage is trapping waste or food particles.
- Water Backups: Water backs up into other fixtures when you use certain plumbing appliances. For example, when you empty the bathtub, water might rise in the shower or sink.
- Overflowing Fixtures: Sinks or toilets may overflow when in use, causing water damage and a potential health hazard.
- Exterior Pipe Issues: You notice toilet paper or other debris accumulating around exterior pipes.
What causes pipes to block?
There are a number of things that can cause your pipes to block, including.
- Foreign Objects: Items accidentally flushed down the toilet or washed down the sink can obstruct pipes.
- Grease Buildup: Grease and fat can solidify in pipes, causing blockages over time.
- Tree Roots: Invasive tree roots can infiltrate pipes, leading to blockages.
- Hair and Soap Scum: Accumulated hair and soap residue can hinder water flow in drains.
- Mineral Deposits: Over time, mineral deposits can build up in pipes, reducing their diameter.
How to fix blocked pipes?
If you notice any of the above signs, it's advisable to seek professional plumbing assistance promptly. Before calling a plumber you should also refrain from using your plumbing fixtures to ensure they don’t overflow and cause more damage.
Essendon Plumbing Services has all the modern machinery and expertise required to unclog your pipes and have your system flowing freely again quickly. Our aim is to do our job effectively and efficiently at an affordable price.
