Common Reasons for Drain Blockages

It's never fun coming home to a flooded laundry room because of a clogged drain, or taking a bath and then noticing that the tub isn't emptying. Clogged or blocked drain pipes can create quite the headache for any homeowner, and getting to the bottom of the problem can take some time. At Dipple Plumbing in Greenville, we understand how to unclog your plumbing and get everything flowing as it should. In this post, we'll look at some common clog causes and what you can do to avoid them.

A few of the most common reasons drains get clogged include:

  • Food blockages  - Food can end up clogging your drain if you put food in your garbage disposal that is meant to be thrown away instead. Avoid putting eggshells, starchy foods, or fibrous veggies down your dink drain.
  • Grease, fat, or oil buildup - Grease blockages happen most often in kitchen drains, and it's important to make sure no grease or cooking oil is put into the sink. If it finds its way into the drain, grease can build up on the sides of the pipe, creating a serious clog that will require professional attention. It's best to pour hot oil into a metal can and let it cool, or if the pan that you cooked bacon on for breakfast has cooled, wipe it out thoroughly before rinsing and washing it. Along with cooking grease, it's important to make sure no food particles find their way into a drain that doesn't have a garbage disposal (even then, not everything should go into the disposal).
  • Clumps of hair - Hair is often the main culprit in bathroom and shower drain clogs. Hair falls out when you take a shower or a bath, and that hair can find its way into the drain. It will cling to the inside of the pipe, as well as to itself, catching anything else that comes down the pipe. When there's soap or shampoo residue, there can be a greater chance for a blockage to form. Placing a hair-catching screen or filter over your shower or tub drain can help you eliminate the risk of a clog, and it's important to check your drain regularly for any obstructions. A standard drain cleaner can eliminate certain blockages, but if it's a serious clog, it's important to call an experienced plumber right away.
  • Other paper products apart from toilet paper - People don't often think of it this way, but the toilet is one of the biggest drains in any home. They're designed to carry waste away into the sewer pipes, and that waste is often accompanied with toilet paper. Toilet paper is designed to dissolve in water, and that's why it should be the only paper product that is flushed. Other things such as paper towels or facial tissues can create problems once they make their way down the toilet drain, and the last thing you want is for one of your toilets to back up and overflow.
  • Non-flushable items - Avoid flushing feminine hygeine products or "flushable" wipes down your drain. Cigarette butts are another common cause of clogged drains and should never be flushed.
