How to Spot a Blocked Drain

If you suspect you have a blockage there are few key things to look for that can help you to confirm the situation:

  • Smell – the easiest symptom to recognise
  • Sink drainage – water takes longer than usual to drain from your sink
  • Toilet drainage – water rises or almost overflows after flushing
  • Noises – gurgling sounds from the plughole

Is It Drains or Is It Sewers?

When drainage issues arise, it’s important to assess if it is an isolated issue within your home or indicative of a problem with the sewer system.

There are some quick steps you can take to find out where the root of the issue lies:

  • See if the issue is affecting just one drainage point or if it is affecting multiple,
  • Ask you neighbours if they are experiencing similar drainage problems.

If a problem is affecting more than one location within your home, or is affecting multiple households in your street then the issue is more likely associated with the sewer system. Contact your water supplier.
