Unusual noises in Your Drainage System
Noises coming from your drains is one of the biggest giveaways that something isn’t right inside your pipework. One of the most frequently reported sounds reported to us by property owners in Canterbury is gurgling.
Gurgling occurs because, when water runs through your drains, it naturally tries to flow around the blockage. The blockage holds up the water and pushes it back. This traps air inside the water that will then force itself back to the surface. This process results in a gurgling sound.
If you hear gurgling, especially for prolonged periods, you have a build-up of some kind in your system.
From drain lining and drain descaling to tree root removal, and from drain excavations to new drain installations, our team has an unmatched knowledge of all drainage services. No matter the size, type or location of your blockage, we can clear it and perform any subsequent repair work on the damage it may have caused.
If you do have a blockage in or around your Canterbury property, you may experience slow-draining water as well as gurgling. You will see this first-hand in your sinks, toilets, bath and shower. The earlier you catch this sign, the easier the unblocking process is.
Quite simply, the blockage in your pipe narrows the internal bore of the pipe. This means there’s less space for the water to drain away. If you’re sending a significant amount of water down the drain, as with a shower or bath, the water simply sits in place while it trickles through.
You can avoid situations like this by taking a proactive approach to drain maintenance and repair. Regular drain descaling keeps pipes clear, maintaining optimal water flow. Swift drain lining and tree root removal services prevent major issues and significant structural damage. In turn, this avoids the need for drain excavations and new drain installations.
Bad Smells Drifting Out of Drains
The final common sign of a blocked drain is an unpleasant odour emanating from your toilet, bath, shower or sink. This smell may intensify when you turn on the taps. If you experience this at your Canterbury property, the source is usually easy to find, albeit not pleasant.
In kitchens, food debris usually causes the odour. If you dispose of food down your plug, it can get stuck in the pipes. Here, it decomposes, creating the nasty smell.
In bathrooms, the odour can come from a mix of stagnant water, soap, shampoo, hair and dead skin congealing in pipes. Likewise, in toilets, a blockage can trap waste, sending a foul smell back to the surface.
