Blocked Bathroom Drains

Bathroom that is wet, slimy, sluggish, and probably have terrible smell can possibly be caused by water not going down the drain or that it’s clogged and blocked, that is not enjoyable in the slightest. Troubleshooting the plumbing problem is one of the steps you need to do first, in order to try fixing the issue and preventing it from happening again in the near future, including more severe problems.

What is the root that can cause such situation of a drain blockage?

To be able to troubleshoot the issue, we need to get into what can contribute to a blocked or clogged bathroom drain situation:

  • Unclean bathroom surroundings from dirt, hair, soap, skin flakes on the inside of drain pipes, blocking it from being accumulated.

Solution: Remove and clean the drain from debris every once in a while, regularly. Additionally, add drain cover to trap hair so it doesn’t go down the drain to prevent any blockage.

  • Blocked drains can also affect toilets, which happens to be a gross business. This is probably a result of flushing down objects, that do not dissolve, down the toilet, for example dental floss, diaper wipes, cotton buds, or feminine hygiene products.

Solution: Use a plunger or drain auger to effectively blocked bathroom drain.

  • Air that enters the pipe from ventilation helps the water flows away. Unclear ventilation can disturb water to properly drain. The bathroom drain will just make gurgle noises when the water goes down the drain instead.

Solution: Check if anything is blocking the vent pipe on the roof.

  • Bad installation can also cause a number of blockages. The pipes will not be able to handle pressure if the size is incorrect.

Solution: Hire a professional plumber that knows what they’re doing that can complete the task of installing proper drain system.

  • Some types of pipes are more fragile than the others. Build up debris can cause a break or crack on the pipes.

Solution: Replace the pipes and install a whole new drain system.

What do I need to do if it’s already too severe?

Preventing is the absolute early fix before anything can happen. But if the issues are already happening, for any plumbing blockage problems, if they are not too serious, will firstly need to be cleared away with easily accessible tools, like a plunger or a drain snake, you can find and do it yourself.
