Our drains are incredibly important as they help to remove waste water and waste products from our home. Their use is one of the reasons that we have eradicated illnesses such as typhoid and cholera in the UK. There are times however when problems can occur with our drains and we need support from a Drain Lining London company such as www.drainpower.co.uk/drainage-services/drain-lining/drain-lining-london/. Here are some problems that can occur with your drains.

Slow flowing water – this often occurs in bathroom sinks and is as a result of a blockage somewhere in the pipes. In the case of bathrooms this is often caused by hair that has built up just inside the plugholel. For kitchen sinks this tends to occur when food has built up in the u bend of the pipe.

Flooding – this can occur when you either have a broken pipe and the water floods through the gap, or as a result of a complete blockage in the pipe. These blockages cause the water to flow back up the pipe and into the sink.

Bad smells – again these are often as a result of blockages that have occurred. When food or water becomes blocked it starts to create a number of gases that then travel back up the pipe and come out of the plughole.

Gurgling – if you notice gurgling in your sink when you pull the plug out it is likely that you have some air trapped in the pipes. This can occur when there is a blockage somewhere in the system.
