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 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 Under and Over Plumbing Solutions to immediately locate the cause of the damage then swiftly remove the problem and repair the damage caused.

    Mal is a down to earth plumber and carpenter.Easy to approach and happy to workout solutions with you when you know you want a particular problem sorted (E.g. storage or height of things, best plumbing options) And you don’t know what will work, he’ll suggest what could work well and give a different perspective, which can be better than the ones you come up with. He’s thoughtful of those with physical disability too.I had installed grab rails, shower seat, and a bathroom cabinet, plus he did some carpenter handyman installation of items for me. Which I couldn’t do because of my disability and my strength and height.He involved me in the process of what works for me.Thank you Mal

    I had Mal from Over & Under Plumbing do a job for me today and I have only good things to say about him – he was quick to respond, was on-time, friendly and did the work efficiently and without fuss. As well, no attempt to up-sell me as some other tradies do these days. I’d recommend him if you need a plumber who will look after you.

    I have been using Mal for few years now. A friendly and pleasant plumber never failed to turn up as promised when i asked him to do plumbing works at my place no matter small or large job. A trustworthy tradesman whom i just need to say any plumbing issues at home and he will do the rest to get it fixed. He has been very helpful also to guide me to other tradespeople when i needed them for jobs other than plumbing.
