4 Signs That It’s Time to Get Your Drain Cleaned—From Oahu’s Best Plumbers, Honolulu, Hawaii

Plumbing problems typically don't appear out of the blue—they tend to develop over time. The first few tell-tale signs of clogged drains are probably easy to miss, but, as with many aspects of home maintenance, the earlier you spot them, the cheaper and easier the fix will likely end up being. In fact, according to Honolulu-based Fast Rooter Plumbing, a company that prides itself on offering no-nonsense plumbing services, there are a number of things to look out for that would indicate that your drain needs cleaning.

So what should you look out for? What are the signs that a drain needs cleaning? Here are four of the most common signs:

  1. Water Pressure: Reduced water pressure in the sinks or tubs often indicates that drains should be cleaned out.
  2. Slower Draining: If it takes an inordinate amount of time for sinks or showers to drain, something in the drain is slowing the process. For instance, if you find that you’re standing in water up to your ankles mid-way through your shower, there’s certainly a problem.
  3. Toilet Problems: Toilets that do not fill all the way after flushing indicate a drop in water pressure, which is often related to a clogged drain. This same issue can also lead to overflowing toilets.
  4. Strange Odors: Unusual, often musty odors near sinks, drains and toilets might also indicate that the drain is clogged; they’re often a sign that water is stuck in or not flowing through the plumbing well enough.

If you see any of these signs, call the folks at Fast Rooter Plumbing immediately. These plumbers specialize in dealing with kitchen clogs, clogged sinks, and just about any other plumbing issue you might have. What’s more, they keep costs down, and try to be as straight-forward and non-invasive with the customer as possible. Learn why Hawaiians have relied on Fast Rooter Plumbing for over 20 years; check out this locally owned plumbing company online, or schedule your appointment with Oahu's best plumbers by calling (808) 734-4938.
