Top Signs You Need a Drain Repair


Drain Repair in Pennsylvania

Every homeowner has to deal with clogs or slow drains and pipes from time to time. However, it’s not always obvious when and where drain clogs are a problem that needs some attention. Sometimes you can’t tell if there’s a clog in your pipe until it backs up into your house, causing expensive damage. If you live in Pennsylvania and your drain needs attention, call Reliable Plumbing for drain repair in Pennsylvania. If you would like to avoid those problems in the future, here are some signs that tell you your drain needs a repair:

Clogged, sticky drains

Coming through the kitchen sink or bathtub drain often looks clean on the surface but can say otherwise up top. If it comes out of the pipe, your drain is clogging (sticking), with gross chunks of gunk hanging off of it. It is caused by hair, soap, and other debris collecting too high in the pipe.

Sludge in sinks and bathtubs

A clog or slow drain pipe will appear like a huge stick of butter in your sink or tub. Sludge that builds up can block water flow into your pipes and adds extra bulk to your pipes, but it’s a buildup that causes clogs.

Musty odor or mold

You may also see mold or mildew in your bathtub and sink drains. It is usually a sign of overgrowth of bacteria, which will make you want to clean it out immediately.

Unpleasant odor coming from your sink or bathtub

If you have a drain clog, you may notice an unpleasant odor coming from your drains. The buildup of water in your pipes can also cause foul odors and increase the number of bacteria in the water.

Drain is stuck

Have you ever noticed that your sink or bathtub doesn’t drain properly? If so, it could be due to a clog or other problem in your drain line.

Sinks and bathtubs are flooding

If you have a flooding sink or bathtub, it could be due to a clog in the drain return pipe and running pipes.

Pipe is shaking or rumbling

If there’s a gradual, steady rattling or shaking coming from the pipes in your house, it could be a sign of clogs.

Sudden backup in drains

If you have a sudden drain backup or an overflow in your toilet, it can quickly cause water damage to your home. You’ll want to call Zoom Drain right away to avoid water damage in your home.

Sudden backups outside of your home

If there’s a sudden influx of water outside the building, that may signify that the drains are blocked and backing up. It would back up into the street or yard and can cause flooding very quickly in heavy rains.
