Hi Kingston, John THE Plumber here! We get an amount of calls that you have a blockage of sorts and that a plunger isn’t cutting the mustard; it usually means that your blockage is solid enough that a more forceful tool is required to clean the drain. Professional Plumbers like us will use one of two solutions for blockages and pipe cleaning which are known as “hydro jetting” and “plumbing snakes”.
If you have been noticing that your water pressure seems weaker than normal, or that clogs seem to keep recurring in your home, it’s time to call a plumber in to have a peek at your pipes.
The two easiest signs that a problem has developed within your drainage system is when you hear gurgling noises coming from your drain and notice that it’s operating slowly. This situation isn’t very problematic and most people choose to ignore what they have seen and heard. Do not delay! The longer you ignore the issue, the more time the drain has to continue backing up, and you can wind up with severely clogged pipes.
Blocked sink drains are annoying and can bring on some anxiety as we anticipate the water overflowing onto our floor. Stay calm; there are several processes you can try to unclog your sink on your own, and John The Plumber is here to advise you on exactly what to do.
