Slow drains can be very inconvenient. Simple tasks such as showering and washing the dishes become noticeably longer and less efficient. What can be even more frustrating is not knowing what is causing your drains to be slower in the first place. Our team at Slab Leak is able to accurately diagnose your problem and recommend a repair that will restore your drain’s flow in no time.
Can A Drain Get Worse?
Slow drains are not a serious issue, but they can turn into one if you do not fix the problem quickly. Eventually, slow drains will develop into backups which are a major mess. These backups can cause flooding and serious damage to your property’s interior.
What Is Causing My Drain To Be Slow?
There are a few reasons why your drain is running slower than usual, but they all revolve around a clog or obstruction in your pipeline that is preventing proper water flow. Here are a few common reasons why you have a slow drain: Hair – hair is notorious for causing clogs in your drains. This is most obvious in the shower where hair that is shed forms a type of net in your drain that will catch soap and more debris that is washed down. Fat, grease, or food – unfortunately, your garbage disposal is not perfect and fatty foods will solidify and block the water from entering. Tree roots – tree roots are one of the most stubborn types of clogs you can have and occur when your line is already weakened from cracks. These roots will grow inside of your pipeline and block the flow.
