A slow drain in your home is usually the indication of a minor blockage somewhere in your plumbing system. Over time, dirt, debris, hair, soap scum, toothpaste, food particles, and more can build up inside of your plumbing pipes and cause them to drain slower than usual. By doing some routine maintenance on your plumbing system, you can usually fix a slow drain rather easily and without much effort. However, if you notice that you have several slow drains in your home or business or if a slow drain continues to be a problem after you’ve have routine maintenance done, it could be the sign of a much larger and potentially disastrous problem.
There’s a chance that a slow drain could be an indication of an issue with the main sewer line in your home or business. If the sewer line ever experiences a blockage or, worse, if the sewer line is ever backed up, it will usually cause the drains in your home to drain very slowly. And if you don’t address the problem, it could cause the drains to backup, which could send raw sewage and other contaminants spewing back into your home. It’s why it’s a good idea to have a plumber take a closer look at a slow-moving drain as soon as you notice it. In most cases, it will only take the plumber a few minutes to get the drain back up and running like usual again. But the plumber may also diagnose a problem deeper in your plumbing system and recommend additional steps to clean it out.
The good news is that, even if your slow drain is a sign of a bigger issue, you can fix the problem with the help of a trusted plumbing company. A plumber can utilize an auger or a high-pressure water system to clear out clogs and restore your plumbing pipes to like new condition.
