How Do I Know If My Sink Drain is Blocked?

Check out some of the early key signs of a blocked drain that should not be ignored.

Slow Drainage
Perhaps you were washing the dishes in the kitchen and when the plug was pulled, the water was draining far slower than usual. In some cases, the water may come to a complete standstill. Leaving you with a dirty pool of water around your sink. This is a clear indication that there is a blockage causing the water to not pass as quickly or at all.
Unusual Gurgling or Noises
One of the most common tell-tale signs of a blocked sink drain is gurgling. This is due to the air trying to escape or enter the drain.
Foul Smell
This is particularly common in the kitchen due to food waste that may be lurking within your pipes. Over time, the food decomposes and lingers, causing a foul stench to fill your room.
If you have noticed any of the signs above, we suggest calling a professional to come diagnose the situation. In some cases, it may be more serious than expected.

Causes of a Blocked Sink Drain

Blocked sink drains happen frequently and can happen to any household. There are number of factors that contribute to a blocked drain. These include:

Food or Oil & Grease (most commonly present in kitchen sinks)
Grease or oil can become solidified along the inside of the pipe. When food and other non-dissolvable items such as coffee grounds and tea bags travel down the sink, this creates a blockage. We suggest that you prevent such waste from going down the drain and if possible, dispose of it correctly in the garbage bin or compost bin for plant/food waste.
Hair
Hair is often lingering around bathroom sink drains. Though, seemingly small at first, hair can begin to bunch up and form large, knotted masses. As it does not degrade, the hair can attract and merge with other debris that may be going down the sink. Before you realise it, a large blockage has formed. We suggest that you clean the sink drain often and where possible, removing hair to prevent it from building up.
Small Non-Dissolvable Objects
Small children’s toys can be mistakenly pushed down the sink when unsupervised. Additionally, other small objects such as cotton swabs or cotton pads that are pushed down the sink may cause a blockage as they do not break down over time. In particular, small objects listed above can create a difficult blockage to remove and you will need the help of a professional plumber.
Tree Roots
This may be the least obvious factor out of the causes listed but it is one of the most serious. Naturally, tree roots search for water and begin making their way to your drainpipes. They find hairline cracks in your pipeline and begin growing inside, becoming larger and eventually, causing a blockage. You will need an experienced plumber like Plumbers To U to immediately locate the cause of the damage then swiftly remove the problem and repair the damage caused.

How Do We Fix a Blocked Drain?

At Plumbers To U, we suggest avoiding any DIY methods or techniques to unclog your sink drain as we have experienced countless cases where individuals have attempted to resolve their plumbing issue only to cause further damage. This damage not only was seen in the pipeline but then, graduated into a structural issue within the walls that resulted in calling other trades to come in. What would have been an easy fix, became an arduous and costly job.

We have the right tools to fix the problem that you would not find in your backyard shed. These include a CCTV camera to investigate the problem and a high-pressure water jet to clear some of the debris to reveal the blockage. From there, we use specific drain clearing equipment to remove and clear the blockage from your sink drain or pipeline.

Additional to our tools, our work is backed by decades of experience to ensure that the work carried out is completed with professionalism, ease and confidence. We understand that sink blockages can be frustrating and affect your daily routine. So that is why, we offer 24/7 emergency services to come out to your home in the Northern Beaches or North Shore to fix any plumbing problem you may be experiencing.

    I have used Mal and team multiple times and have no hesitation in recommending. Their work is high quality and they are very professional. I am not an expert in construction matters so rely heavily on honest, experienced tradespeople. I haven’t been let down by Mal and the team and they’ve also helped me connect with other trades of equivalent standard.

    Stu and Mal are lifesavers! Also extremely professional, competent and genuine. My outdoor hot water system split, flooding the neighbourhood on a weekend in lockdown. They managed the situation, got me a replacement as soon as humanly possible and did it all with smiles and style. You can tell they’re experienced, smart and know their stuff. They will be my new plumbing besties from here on in. Really good guys. Thanks again, Mel

    Fantastic, fast, high quality and honest service withe excellent communication. Came out the next day to fix a problem with our drain. I couldn’t be home at the time so Mal took photos and videos identifying the problem and what he had done to fix it and sent them through. Also made some recommendations to prevent it happening again. Would highly recommend their services.
