3 Symptoms of a Clogged Drain Line in Camp Hill, Harrisburg & Mechanicsburg, PA and the Surrounding Areas - Pronto Plumbing

Slow Drains

One of the biggest signs of a clogged or clogging drain line is a slow drain. Whether it’s in your sink, toilet, or the floor drain in the basement if your drains are going down unusually slow you more than likely need a drain opening or cleaning.

Backed Up Drains

Another symptom of a clogged drain line in your home is that drains are backing up. This is a messy and undesirable symptom of a clogged drain that should be taken care of immediately. Not only does a drain backup present an often unpleasant situation, it can also be a danger to your health and the health of your family.

Unpleasant Odors

If you start smelling a “gassy” sewage type of smell in the area of your drains (usually in the kitchen, bathroom, or basement with a floor drain), you are probably beginning to smell the onset of a blockage or problem in your drain lines. This typically happens because there is something blocking your drains and it creates a lack of pressure around the vents in the system, letting sewer gas back into the home rather than properly venting it elsewhere.

Professional Drain Technician

If you are experiencing any symptoms of a clogged drain line in your home it is best to call a professional drain technician to help you open and clean your drain lines. It is best to take care of drain issues when they are smaller and before they evolve into a larger, messier situation.
