5 Signs Your Drains Are in Trouble

How are your kitchen drains? How about your bathroom drains? If the answer to that question is anything other than an enthusiastic “great!” then you might need our help. Drains go through cycles of being clear and clogging, it’s just a fact of plumbing life. But what homeowners don’t realize is that there are effective and affordable solutions out there to their plumbing woes.

If your drains are starting to slow down, you don’t have to play the waiting game while you get ready for the inevitable clog to happen. You can address things before they get really bad. By using the help of a licensed and certified plumber, you can avoid some of the most obnoxious plumbing problems like drain clogs.

So, let’s talk about some signs indicating that you need our drain services in Lloydminster, SK.

Service Over Troubled Drains

While we appreciate you noticing our Simon & Garfunkel reference, we think it’s more important that you appreciate what we’re trying to do. Your drains could be having trouble right now and you would have no idea. That’s why we’re trying to emphasize some of the more important signs that a plumbing system needs professional help.

1. Gurgling Noises

Gurgling noises are not supposed to come from your drain. In fact, they can be one of the easiest signs to notice that something is wrong. This type of noise can be produced by air bubbles that are being created from a constricted pipe that won’t allow optimal water flow. Similarly to when you gurgle after brushing your teeth, this noise can only be produced by a constricted water flow that’s cause by a drain clog!

2. Odd Smells

Inside your drain there exists something called a P-trap. A p-trap is a system that keeps the sewer and waste gases from coming up out of your drain, similarly to the lid of your garbage can. If the trap in your drain system becomes clogged, there will be nowhere for the odors to go except wafting up into your kitchen or bathroom. Do yourself a favor and get this addressed sooner rather than later, to improve the aesthetics and comfort of your home at least!

3. Slow Drains

Slow drains can occur when clogs are beginning to form. It’s not a bad idea to invest in preventative drain cleaning services when you know a clog is about to show up. Now, if multiple drains are slow and they’re causing your plumbing system to crawl to a halt—there could be something worse going on inside your sewer system. Either way, call us to have this problem fixed.

4. Frequent Clogs

Clogs shouldn’t happen that frequently. If they are, it could be the signal that something worse is happening within your plumbing system. Perhaps things don’t drain the right way, so more material is getting stuck when it shouldn’t.

5. Unsatisfactory Drains

Sure, your drains aren’t clogged, but they’re not making you happy either. What do you do? You don’t have to wait until your drains are slow, smelly, or clogged to call for our help. Sometimes we can provide professional advice to see if there are any upgrades that could make your life easier.

Call our team today to have your drains cleaned and your plumbing needs addressed. Lloydminster’s plumbing and heating authority.
