You probably have an image in your head of what a plumbing emergency looks like. Water is gushing like a geyser and people are running around with buckets and wrenches. Your sink or tub taking a very long time to drain probably doesn’t seem like an emergency to you. But it is a huge inconvenience!
We’ll give you some pointers on how you can address slow drains yourself, and what tools and techniques a plumber can use to help. We’ll also include some warning signs to keep an eye out for, because sometimes, a slow drain is the first sign of a much bigger problem that you don’t want to ignore. After all, you definitely don’t want to end up with a real plumbing emergency on your hands.
