Signs of a blocked drain

$0 call out fee when you book before 5:00pm*

A drain is a primary vessel for unwanted water or waste liquids to be passed to be released or processed. They lead into either a more useful area, channeled into a receptacle, or run into sewers or stormwater mains.

A blocked drain is one of the most common reasons to call on a drain expert. Not only do they give off a foul smell, but blocked sinks are also the root cause of all kinds of minor problems.

If you suspect you have a blocked drain, the good news is you may be able to clear it yourself. If the problem persists, please do not hesitate to contact us on 091583564. We are a 24/7 emergency service.


Blocked drains can be a source of property damage and health problems for people and pets. Some early warning signs of a blocked drain:

Foul smell

The most common and generally first sign you may notice is a foul smell. In most cases, this is a sewage-like scent.


If you notice water spilling back up from your drain, your drain is overflowing, and you are facing a blockage.

Gurgling sounds

Gurgling sounds indicate that the water is pooling and pushing against the pipe. If you experience this, it is more than likely the case of a blockage.

Slow draining

If the water pools for longer than usual while emptying a sink or taking a shower, chances are you may have a blockage – particularly if the problem worsens, this means the blockage is becoming larger.
