Early Signs of Drain & Sewer Problems

It’s hard to predict when a toy, coin or piece of jewelry might fall into a drain and cause a clog. But there are often early signs of blockage in a kitchen or bathroom drain, so keep an eye out for these tip-offs:

  • Slow or sluggish emptying of dishwater
  • Residue left in sinks, showers or tubs
  • Gurgling toilet
  • Varying water levels in toilets
  • Pooled water in the basement
  • Musty odors
  • Frequent laundry & dishwasher problems


If you often see hair, soap residue and oily substances in your sink or bathtub, a clogged drain is looming in your future.
