How to know if your drains are blocked

The most common sign of a localised blocked drain is when the water in your sink, basin, bath, shower or toilet drains very slowly. Left too long, the blockage may get worse and stop the water flowing all together, resulting in overflowing drains and potential water damage!
If the blockage is further down the pipe, you may notice the water drainage from one fixture results in rising water in another fixture. For example, draining the water from your bathroom basin causes water to rise out of your floor drain.

If you’re noticing backed-up toilets or gurgling drains, don’t delay! Call BH Plumbing to keep your water flowing!
