No one wants to walk into the bathroom to see water backed up in the tub or sink. Remember the unpleasant experience of flushing the toilet only to have the water level keep going up and up until it is spilling over the sides onto the floor? These plumbing problems are caused by system blockages somewhere in the plumbing lines. They won’t fix themselves and may not respond to over the counter remedies or plunger application.
What Can Cause Plumbing Blockages?
The Toilet Is Overflowing
Toilets can get backed up because of underlying plumbing problems or because of foreign objects dropped into them. Little children can be fascinated by toilets flushing and decide to test what can go down that drain. Some items like stuffed animals will be too big to go down and can be removed, but others go down and contribute to a blockage as the toilet is used. Family members or guests can flush feminine products instead of properly disposing of them. The blue loo cages used for toilet self-cleaning can come loose and be accidentally flushed down the toilet. If family members use too much toilet paper, blockage problems can happen.
The Household Sinks Back Up.
Bathroom sinks, tubs, and shower drains can get backed up by a build up of hair, soap and other beauty products over time. Kitchen sinks can get backed up by having fat solids and food wastes washed down the drain rather than be properly handled. Liquid grease left over from cooking can be easy to pour down the drain where it turns into solids that help block the drain. Unless there is a garbage disposal, food washed down the drain can also cause Blocked Drains.
