Why Are My Drains Slow?

Dependable Service Since 1926

If your drains are clogged or slow, call the Denver plumbers at Bell Plumbing and Heating. We offer comprehensive plumbing repairs and drain cleaning. Meanwhile, here are some reasons that your drains might be slow.

When there’s a clog anywhere in your drain line, it can cause the water to drain more slowly. Clogged drains happen over time, and a slow drain is one of the early warning signs. Backups and overflowing toilets are another sign that you may have a clog. Make sure you don’t flush anything that could get clogged down the toilet. If you have small children, watch out for them flushing toys down your toilets.

If you have a garbage disposal, food that doesn’t get ground or grease can clog your drain line and cause the water in the kitchen sink to drain more slowly or get backed up.

A blocked plumbing vent could also be the problem. The main drain line in your home has a stack that usually extends up through the roof to allow air into the system to equalize the pressure in the pipe. When there’s a block inside the stack, it could be causing a slow drain because the air pressure balance is off.

The best way to handle a slow drain or clog is to hire a plumber in Denver you can trust to take care of the problem. Contact Bell Plumbing and Heating. Our plumbers are certified and trained and to provide all your plumbing needs. Call us for your next service.
