What’s Causing My Drain Clog?

When blockages go unnoticed for too long, they can lead to serious plumbing problems and costly repairs. By regularly cleaning your drains, you can prevent major clogs from occurring. However, drain clogs can’t always be prevented. Below are seven common issues that could cause your drain to clog.

  • Bellies and flat spots: If a flat spot has formed near your sewer line due to settling soil, waste can build up and lead to problems. The best way to check for any issues with the grade of your sewer line is to have a professional inspect for any eroding dirt or improper installation.
  • Broken Clean Outs: If your clean out is broken, you’ll experience blockages and backups in your drain line. To fix the issue, you’ll need to replace the cap or repair the pipe itself. Replacing the cap is usually a simple job that can be done with basic tools, but repairing your pipe may require professional help.
  • Cracks: Cracked pipes can create obstructions, preventing water and debris from flowing through freely. This could lead to unpleasant odors, water backups and slow draining. I’s important to check for any cracks in your pipes and repair them as soon as possible to avoid costly repairs down the line and keep your drains running smoothly.
  • Mineral buildup: Mineral buildup in pipes is a common issue for homeowners in Montgomery County thanks to the hard water — which contains a higher concentration of minerals like magnesium, calcium, and iron. It often leaves behind residue that builds up over time.
  • Obstructions: When excess hair, soap scum, food particles and dirt go down your drain, they can cause blockages.
    Roots: Tree roots can be major culprits when it comes to drain clogs. As tree roots grow, they seek out moisture and nutrients in the soil. If your sewer line is cracked or otherwise compromised, it’s possible for these roots to make their way into your pipe and eventually cause blockage.
  • Grease: Grease and oil are major causes of drain clogs. Avoid pouring any grease or oil down your drains to prevent it from becoming a problem.

If you notice the water in your sink or tub isn’t draining properly and you’re not able to easily remove the stoppage, it’s best to contact a professional plumber as soon as possible. Heil Plumbing has the right tools and expertise to diagnose and resolve any clog issue quickly and efficiently.
