Common Drain Issues to Watch Out For

Common Drain Issues to Watch Out For

From toilets that won’t flush to frozen water lines, you’ll probably encounter plumbing problems multiple times. And you’ll be caught unaware at least once. But the good news is that when it comes to your drains, there can be a few tell-tale signs that you can watch out for.

Here are a few common drain issues that might prompt a drain cleaning in Marietta, GA.

Recurring Clogs

Whether it’s in the kitchen or bath, drains that continually develop clogs demand attention. While clearing the superficial clogged drain can get your water moving without a hitch again, there’s usually a larger issue further down inside your plumbing which needs to be addressed once and for all.

Unpleasant Smells

Stagnant water is hard to miss. It gives off a foul, pungent odor that even strong disinfectants can’t remedy. If there’s a clog deep in your kitchen drain or disposal, food that otherwise would go down can become trapped and eventually rot. In the bathroom or laundry room, soap scum, lint, and dog hair can cause issues, leading to unpleasant odors and possibly water backing up in other parts of your home.

But don’t worry, this is usually nothing that our drain cleaning services can’t fix.


Issues in the main line of your plumbing can also cause flooding. In homes with a basement, it’s not uncommon to see the overflow running all over the floor. This can also happen if there’s a clog in the line that runs from your washer into the drain. Our hydro jetting services might just be the ideal solution to this.

Keeping your plumbing in pristine condition starts with prevention. In addition to knowing the warning signs, you should schedule regular maintenance with our drain cleaning company at least once a year.
