Signs and Causes of Clogged Pipes

There are several signs that indicate you have a clogged sink, clogged drain, or just clogged up plumbing. These are the easiest signs to spot a clogged drain.

  • Slow Draining If water builds up in your sink or tub and takes longer to drain than normal, this is a good indicator that you have a clog in your plumbing. If you have a problem with this in your kitchen, then you may have a clogged kitchen sink. This might not be a problem with your pipes, and you could need garbage disposal repair.
  • Standing Water / Water Backup If you notice water coming back up through your drain where it isn’t supposed to, then your sewer line may be clogged and require fixing.
  • Foul Smelling Water A bad odor coming from standing water or water that backs up into your fixtures is a good indicator that your waste water system is clogged somewhere along the line. This is especially possible for a clogged bathroom sink.

There are several things that can cause you pipes to become blocked. It’s not just time, but outside factors.

  • Dirt: It doesn’t matter how clean of a household you keep. Sometimes dirt just collects in your pipes and causes a clog.
  • Hair: Human hair can easily become snagged in your pipes, and begin to collect in balls that will clog your shower and sink drains.
  • Mineral Buildup: Hard water can leave sediment deposits inside your drain. Some areas can build up calcium and magnesium quicker than others.
  • Flushed Items: Anything that isn’t meant to be flushed can cause a clogged drain. Small children are known to flush things that they shouldn’t.
  • Toilet Paper: Even though it is meant to be flushed, sometimes it can snag on to other elements of a clog, or start a clog itself If enough accumulates, it can block a drain completely.
  • Food Waste: Food put down the sink without the utilization of a garbage disposal can clog drains.
  • Tree Roots: Tree roots often seek out moisture and sources of water. This can lead them to underground waste water lines. If they break through the pipe lines, they can cause leaks, breaks, and potentially clogs by cutting off the flow of water completely.

Tree roots are especially dangerous because they’re actively seeking out the water in your wastewater pipes. If you suspect you have a tree root intruding into your pipes, we can come and inspect this for you.

Sewer Drain Cleaning
