SIGNS OF BLOCKED PIPES: WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR
Blocked pipes can cause a number of issues in your plumbing system, so it’s important to recognise the signs of a blockage as early as possible. Here are some common signs of blocked pipes to look out for:
Slow Draining Water
If water takes longer than usual to drain from your sink, shower, or bathtub, it could be a sign of a blockage.
If you hear gurgling or bubbling noises coming from your toilet or other plumbing fixtures, it could be a sign of a blockage in your pipes.
If you notice foul smells coming from your drains, it could be a sign that food, hair, or other debris is trapped in your pipes.
Water Pressure Issues
If you notice a sudden decrease in water pressure in your plumbing fixtures, it could be a sign of a blockage in your pipes.
Water Stains Or Damage
If you notice water stains or damage on your walls or ceilings, it could be a sign that water is backing up in your pipes and leaking into your home.
Increased Water Bills
If you notice a significant increase in your water bills without any changes in water usage, it could be a sign of a hidden blockage in your pipes causing water to leak or flow inefficiently.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Clear A Blocked Pipe On My Own?
While there are DIY methods for clearing blocked pipes, we recommend that you leave it to the professionals. Using store-bought drain cleaners or other DIY methods can actually cause more damage to your plumbing system and make the problem worse. At GRH Plumbing, we have the experience and equipment necessary to quickly and effectively clear any blockages in your pipes.
How Often Should I Have My Pipes Cleaned?
The frequency of pipe cleaning depends on several factors, such as the age and condition of your plumbing system, the number of people in your household, and the type of pipes you have. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend having your pipes professionally cleaned every 1-2 years to prevent blockages and ensure that your plumbing system is running efficiently.
Can A Blocked Pipe Cause Damage To My Home?
Yes, if left untreated, a blocked pipe can cause serious damage to your plumbing system and your home. Water can back up and cause flooding or water damage, and the pressure from a blockage can cause your pipes to burst or crack. It’s important to address any blockages as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Additionally, water damage can lead to mould growth, which can be harmful to your health.
How Can I Prevent Blocked Pipes In The Future?
Regular maintenance and cleaning can help prevent blocked pipes from occurring in the future. This includes:
Using drain covers to catch hair and debris: Drain covers are an inexpensive and effective way to prevent hair and other debris from clogging your pipes.
Avoid pouring grease or oil down your drains: Grease and oil can solidify in your pipes and cause blockages. Instead, dispose of them in the trash or recycle them if possible.
Scheduling regular pipe cleaning services with a professional plumber: Regular pipe cleaning services can help prevent blockages from occurring in the first place, saving you time and money in the long run.
Will Clearing A Blocked Pipe Fix Any Water Pressure Issues I’m Experiencing?
In some cases, clearing a blocked pipe can help improve your water pressure. If the blockage was causing a restriction in your plumbing system, clearing it can allow water to flow more freely, which can improve your water pressure. However, if the water pressure issues are caused by a separate issue, such as a damaged or corroded pipe, additional repairs may be necessary. We’ll assess your plumbing system to determine the root cause of any water pressure issues and provide you with the appropriate solutions.
What Are The Common Causes Of Blocked Sinks In Kitchens And Bathrooms?
Blocked sinks in kitchens and bathrooms can occur due to various reasons. In kitchens, it’s often caused by food particles, grease, and soap scum building up in the pipes. In bathrooms, hair, soap residue, and toothpaste can lead to blockages. Additionally, foreign objects accidentally going down the drain can also contribute to this problem.
How Can I Prevent Blocked Sinks In My Kitchen Or Bathroom?
Preventing blocked sinks is all about being mindful of what goes down the drain. In the kitchen, avoid pouring grease or oil down the sink, and use sink strainers to catch food particles. In the bathroom, install hair catchers in the shower and sink drains to prevent hair and soap scum buildup. Regularly flushing your drains with hot water can also keep them clear.
