Clogged Drain Warning Signs

A clogged drain in Toronto is usually the result of a sink trap blockage. Where this is the case, DIY trap removal and cleaning will suffice to clear a clog in no time. Serious problems start when multiple drains backup simultaneously. When this is the case (or when drains backup regularly), a clogged drain in Toronto may be indicative of a more severe problem.

  • Water backups as multiple drains are in use can be a sign of damaged or partially blocked sewer lines
  • Backups after trap cleaning will always necessitate more thorough plumbing system inspections
  • Older ceramic and iron pipes are much more susceptible to damage and corrosion

DIY Plumbing Disasters

Several store-bought detergents claim to dissolve stubborn drain blockages. However, chemical quick fixes can cause considerable damage to home plumbing systems. For the most part, acids only dissolve blockages in easy to reach sink and shower traps. Moreover, repeated use can lead to corroded pipes, plumbing seals, and sewer lines.

  • DIY drain snaking can result in accidental damage to pipes and plumbing fixtures
  • Corrosive detergents are highly caustic and dangerous if not properly handled. Quick fixes like DIY snaking can lead to minor blockages becoming impacted and worsening over time

The Difference Between a Clogged Drain in Toronto & a Blocked Drain

Clogged drains are usually the result of ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ pipe blockages. Where a soft clog can be identified as the cause, drain snaking and pressure washing will suffice to clear drains. However, blocked drains can be more problematic. Namely, because ‘hard’ obstructions will often require manual removal.
