Drainage issues often require immediate attention. The longer you wait to address a clog or drainage issue, the worse it becomes. While home solutions and DIY alternatives can be effective in temporarily relieving clogs or solving drainage malfunctions, professional assistance is crucial in solving the issue and preventing it from re-occurring. Our experienced team of plumbers are capable of identifying and addressing any drainage problem you may have, so you can feel confident that your plumbing issues will be solved.

Common Drainage Issues that Require Attention

Some people opt for DIY solutions and home remedies to address serious drainage issues. These can help in the short-term, but they are rarely long-term solutions. Here are a variety of common issues that require professional attention:

  • Slow Drains

    Slow drains are one of the first signs that a clog is forming. The build-up of grease, oil, chemicals, sediments, and other debris is slowly narrowing the pipe, resulting in poor water flow. These oils and chemicals can also damage your pipes, causing rust and other deterioration. If left unaddressed, these small issues can cause flooding and become significant expenses in the future.

  • Recurring, Consistent Clogs

    Clogs that recur and consistently return after being cleaned can also signify a more serious problem. These clogs keep reoccurring because the drainage issues are not being addressed at the source. At Drain King Plumbers, we have the tools to solve your drainage problems and prevent them from coming back.

  • Multiple Clogged Drains

    If multiple drains on the same plumbing system are clogged at the same time, it suggests that there is a clog in your main drain system, rather than each individual drain. This kind of a problem needs professional attention, as we can access the main system and have the tools to fix the clog.

  • Foul Odours Coming from Pipes

    Foul odours that radiate from your pipes suggest that there is some kind of debris stuck in the pipes. As it decomposes and bacteria content increases the odour becomes stronger.

  • Flooding or Sewage Backup

    Alternatively, odours could suggest there is a sewage backup occurring in the system. This requires immediate professional attention, as it could lead to flooding. Flooding can cause a great deal of damage and can be costly to repair, so be sure to address these issues before they become serious.
