Common Drain Issues That May Require a Professional Plumber

No one wants to deal with a plumbing issue, but unfortunately, they do happen. That's where Thistle DKI comes in! We offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services, and we're here to help get you back up and running.

In today's blog post, we're sharing a few drain issues that we see on a regular basis. If you're experiencing any of the following, it's time to call one of our Thistle local plumbers.


1. Clogged Drain

This is one of the most common drain issues, and can often be solved with store-bought drain cleaner. However, if you have older pipes or have recurring clogs, it's better to call in a professional, as drain cleaner can damage your pipes.

Your drains can be clogged in multiple places, and sometimes the clog is future down the pipe than you can access on your own. When you have a clogged drain, water may not be draining properly from your sink, shower, or toilet. If it's not taken care of, this can lead to a number of other problems, including water damage and foul odors.

2. Slow Drains

If your drains are slow to empty, it can be a sign that there's something blocking them. Even if it seems like you can just be patient with your slow drain, it can lead to a bigger clog, which can lead to burst pipes or another larger plumbing issue. A local plumber can help clear the blockage and get your drains running smoothly again.


3. Gurgling drains

This strange noise is often a sign of a blockage in the drain line. Not only is it unpleasant, but it may be a symptom of a bigger issue, including a burst pipe under your home. A plumber can help clear the blockage or repair the pipe, stopping the noise.

4. Leaky Drains

If you notice water pooling around your drains or coming up through them, you've got a big problem! Often, you'll notice water pooling under your sink or spilling onto the floor. Stop using the sink, clean up what water you can, and call Thistle DKI plumbers!


5. Burst Pipes

If you see water spilling out from under your sink, it's likely that you have a burst pipe. This can cause extensive damage to your home, so it's important to address it as soon as possible. If it happens during off-hours or in the middle of the night, our emergency plumbers are still available. We provide 24/7 emergency plumbing services and will address the plumbing issue immediately.

6. Foul Odor

Your drains should not smell bad. A foul odor is a sign of a blockage or other problem, and you'll need to get it fixed to prevent water damage. A plumber can help investigate the source of the smell and fix the issue.


7. Reduced Water Pressure

If you're suddenly experiencing reduced water pressure, it could be a sign of a clogged pipe. This can be caused by anything from hair to food particles to grease. A plumber can help clear the blockage and restore your water pressure.

8. Toilet Constantly Running

A constantly running toilet is a sign that you likely have a blockage in the sewer line. This can be caused by anything from too much toilet paper to tampons to baby wipes. A plumber can help clear the blockage and stop the toilet from running.
