Common Drain Problems

Slow Drainage

When water goes down a drain slowly, it can be easy to put off fixing the problem, however it's a problem that should not be ignored, as clogged drains can lead to a host of larger problems, from health, to structural. Click here to read about they problems the can arise from clogged drains.

A slow drain indicates the likely presence of a clog, build-up of grease, or minerals on the inside of the piping. It may also indicate improper grading of your drainage system. Both of these issues can lead to much bigger problems.

Foul Smelling Drains

Foul odors come from drains in homes that are connected to a municipal sewer line can indicate that a drainage issue has developed. This can become costly if ignored, so be sure to have an expert assess the issue right away. Another cause of foul odors could be pollutants built up in your drainage system, or a clog in your plumbing vents.

Gurgling Drains

If your drains are gurgling, especially if foul odors are present, it may be that your plumbing vents are clogged. This is an often overlooked problem, but here in Northern NJ, it is not uncommon for birds or squirrels and the like to make their home in the vents coming out of the roof, which will force the air back down and up through your drains. It is also possible that this is simply the result of a clog in the pipes.

Toilets that Repeatedly Clog

  • Foreign Objects - It's amazing how many people will flush non-toilet paper down the toilet. If you're experiencing repeated clogs, there is a good chance someone in your family is flushing: paper towels, tampons, q-tips, prophylactics, baby wipes, or other objects down the toilets. Make sure you have a talk with the members of your household, young and old about what goes into the toilet. (Toilet paper or tissues.) And what doesn't (Everything Else.)

  • Flapper Position- The flapper opens up to allow water from the tank to flush the toilet. If, for some reason it isn't opening all of the way, you may not get enough water into the bowl to properly flush. 

  • Blocked Plumbing Vents - Toilet drains vent out through your roof. These often become clogged by birds nests' or other debris. If you are hearing gurgling in your drains, or drains have a lot of odor coming up through them, there is a good chance your problem is a clogged vent. 

  • Object in the Trap - While a plunger will push most things down the drain, if something like a toy or a toothbrush end up wedged in the S-Curve of the pipe, it will continue to collect debris and clog your toilet. 

  • Sewer Line Obstructions- Sewer lines may become clogged, or damaged by tree roots. This can cause backups in the toilet. 

  • Older Low Flow Toilets - When low-flow toilets first came out, there were a lot of design flaws. Newer Low Flow Toilets have good flushing power, but the older ones can fall short of the job. It may be time to swap out for a newer model, or simply to remain friendly with your plunger. 

Clogged Drains and The Problems that Come With Them

A clogged drain may be a simple fix, however, it's a fix that should not be put off, as clogged drains can lead to a host of larger problems, from health, to structural.

  • Strong Odors - Blocked drains lead to stagnant water, which can result in mold and that ever-pleasant "musty" smell that mold gives off. Even the less toxic molds can give off odors that cause headaches and uncomfortability. 

  • Pests - Stagnant water is an attraction to a variety of pests. Roaches, flies, and mosquitos are just a few of the critters and creatures that will be drawn to any sitting water within the home. 

  • Health Issues - The mold and bacteria that result from stagnant water in clogged drains often exacerbate existing problems in a person’s health such as asthma or COPD, and chronic health issues can develop in otherwise healthy people when those things enter the atmosphere of your home. 

  • Structural Damage - Stagnant water around clogs can cause pipes to leak and break down. The water can soak into the foundation and corners of the home, weakening the structural integrity of the home, as well as get into the walls and ceilings, causing damage to drywall, insulation, and potentially causing a large mold problem.
