Many times bathroom drains can be slowed down by the accumulation of hair and debris.
If you only have a slow drain in one sink or tub, many times this can be easily fixed by removing the tub stopper and removing the hair clog/build-up with a pair of needle nose pliers. After removing all the debris run hot water down the drain for a few moments. If this cleared up your problem you are golden! If you are unable to get the results you need.. call your plumber before the problem gets worse.
Sometimes slow drains in a home can be a warning sign of bigger problems. If all of your drains in the home are slow, or multiple drains are slow, it may be time to call out a plumber to have your lines rodded. Slow draining main lines can become stopped up at any time. The result could leave you desperate for an emergency call to a plumber when you have toilets that won't flush, or tubs & sinks full of black nasty sewer water.
One thing that must be added. If you are currently on a septic tank you may need to consider that your tank might need to be pumped/cleaned. Slow drains and back-ups are a definite sign.
Preventative maintenance can save you money and time. It can also help you avoid a major cleaning project and water use down-time.
Feel free to call if you have any questions about your drainage situations.
