One of the most neglected plumbing needs is drain cleaning and maintenance. Most homeowners wait until the situation is serious and they have a clogged drain that is completely blocked and unmanageable. For common sinks and toilets, this can be a huge nuisance, but for basement floor drains a blockage can mean waste water backing up into your home. This can cause a lot of damage and pose a major health hazard for you and your family. That’s why it’s important to be aware of any signs that a major drain blockage is imminent.
Signs that you have a main drain blockage include:
- More than one drain is backed up. This is often accompanied with gurgling sounds from the drains.
- You notice water backing up in unusual places when using plumbing fixtures such as toilets, sinks and showers. This occurs for example when you notice water backing up in your shower or sink drain when you flush the toilet.
- You see drainage in the sewer clean out. The sewer clean out is a white or black pipe with a cap that is usually on the side of your home. This pipe provides access to the sewer line and allows plumbers to easily clean out a clogs sewer line.
