Signs of a blockage:
You should call in help when you start to suspect a blockage to prevent a bigger problem occurring. Signs of a blockage include:
- Overflowing sink, basin, toilet, shower, outdoor down pipe, or drain.
- A gurgling or gulping sound in the drain when water is turned on.
- Delay in the water going down the toilet, bath or basin.
- Pooling of water in the shower or around where the drain is.
- An unpleasant smell, such as, sewage.
Avoiding a blockage:
There are a number of things you can do to reduce the chance of a blockage occurring. Below are a few tips to help avoid a blocked drain in your home or business:
Avoid pouring cooking grease down the drain. Wipe greasy pots and pans with a paper towel and run plenty of hot water when rinsing greasy items.
Install a strainer in the bath/shower to catch hair. Be careful of the plastic razor guards.
Do not flush sanitary products, baby wipes, or dental floss down the toilet.
Clear your outdoor gutters and drain covers regularly of leaves and debris.
Contact the drain experts:
Remember small problems can lead to much bigger problems, even health hazards, if not dealt with properly. We recommend calling Alpha Drain Unblocking if you have or suspect a drain blockage in your home or business.
