Your drainage system is essential in keeping your property dry and free from excess water. As such, it would be a total disaster if your drains get damaged. To prevent it from wreaking havoc in your home, it is important to spot the early signs of possible drain issues and take the necessary actions to resolve the problem. Here are some of the signs that you should look out for.

Water draining slowly

If you notice that your toilet, shower, bath or sinks are draining slowly, this is an obvious sign that your drain is partially blocked. If only one of these fixtures is experiencing the blockage, it is possible that it is a localised problem. However, if all of them are having the same concern, the issue is likely to be in the main sewer drain.

Bad odours

A foul smell indicates that there is an underlying problem in your drain. This possibly means that waste materials such as decomposing solids along with the stagnant water have gathered due to blockage. When this happens, the sewer gases produce unpleasant odours that emerge in the sinks, bathtubs and shower drains.

Leaking wastewater

If you see any wet spots in your property that have not dissipated for days, this may mean that your drainage system has an issue. Check if your drainpipes have a blockage or if there is a leak in you sewer pipes

What to do next?

  • Drain issues are often caused by a build-up of materials such as grease, toiletries and other debris. It is important to dispose of them properly to avoid having clogged drains.
  • If you notice any of these tell-tale signs in your home, contact your drain specialists immediately.
