Common Causes Of Blocked Drains

Blocked drains can be an inconvenience and they can cause damage to your plumbing system due to the build-up of pressure at the site of a blockage. Partial blockages can quickly turn into complete blockages and leave you with standing water in your sink or unable to shower or use your toilet. Common signs of a blocked drain include slow draining water, raised water levels in the toilets or a foul smell coming from the drains, which often occurs due to food debris being stuck in the pipes.
