A drain block is never a sudden occurrence in that there are always certain signs that precede it. In most instances, we tend to overlook water collecting in the sink or the bathroom and shower areas pooling up and the water draining from the sinks slower than usual. Smelly drains are one more common sign that there is a block in the pipes. These foul odours are hard to miss and in some cases, can be so severe that they spread through the entire indoor spaces of your home.
The unfortunate part is that most property owners try to “solve” the blocked drain using drain cleaners they pick up from supermarkets, or when the water doesn’t drain quickly from the sink, they may use a plunger. This is a very temporary fix. In fact, it isn’t a fix at all! The vacuum just clears the space inside the drain. Once you stop using the plunger, the block closes and the problem will recur very soon. When a sewage line gets completely blocked, the sludge and sewage water don’t have any choice except to move into reverse and it comes out of the toilet drain, sink or the other drains.
