A Clogged Drain is Never a Good Thing: 3 Signs It’s Time to Call a Plumber

A majority of the time, drains operate with no problems. When drain clogs do occur, here are some signs you might need our knowledge and experience to get your drain running smoothly again.  

Problems with Toilets 

Toilets are well connected to the rest of your drains, so spotting a problem with your toilet may indicate there are more problems with your main drain system. If your toilet is not flushing properly or is gurgling more than usual, checking out other drains may show you a larger problem that is usually better to fix sooner rather than later.  

Washing Machines 

Unexpectedly, running your washing machine can show you signs of sewer drain clogs. Water draining out of the washing machine can create a toilet overflow or in some cases can even back up in the tub or shower. This is a clear-cut sign there is either a problem with your washing machine or a sewer drain clog. 

Other Indications of Clogs 

Slow draining in sinks or tubs often is a telltale sign of a clogged drain. Oftentimes in bathrooms things like hair, products, or other small items can sneak their way into your drain and cause a buildup. Strange smells coincide with clog drains however these smells can even indicate something as serious as a sewer gas leak, which requires immediate attention. Finally, gurgling noises or even atypical noises coming from drains may suggest that something is not working properly with the drain.
