If more than one drain in your home backs up at the same time, this likely means you have a clog deep in your main line. You may also notice foul odors coming out of multiple drains.

Giveaways of clogs in your drains and plumbing system are:
-Sink, toilet, or shower gurgles when in use
-Foul odors permeate around drains or sinks
-Water flow is restricted when using an outlet or faucet
-Toilet clogs frequently
-Puddles or water damage near plumbing fixtures
-Water drains incredibly slowly as it flows into pipes

If your home is over 20 years old, it is generally a good idea to have the sewer line and drain inspected. If you have tree roots near your sewer line, you may need to have it inspected every few years.

Yes! Chemical reactions caused by drain cleaning products can damage drain and sewer pipes. They can even cause older pipes to break. Other reasons that you should avoid pouring chemical cleaners down your drain include:
-Chemical cleaning solutions are highly toxic
-They are bad for the environment
-They can cause chemical reactions
-They don’t always solve your drain problems
