Common Reasons Your Drains are Clogged
In most instances, a slow drain is the effect of a clog somewhere. This may be a clog in one of your drains, or it could be a clog somewhere in the pipe itself. If your drains are still draining, just slowly, then it is a partial clog. If your drains no longer drain, it has become a full clog. Both of these issues have the same basic remedy, just a full clog gets more treatment than a partial clog.
You can also have a slow drain as a result of roots in your pipes. This happens when a single root makes its way into your pipe, in search of water. Once there, it drinks up all the water it can find, grows, and signals to the rest of the tree to send more roots. Over time, more roots build up and your drains slow even further.
Corrosion can also lead to drains that work more slowly than they should. This is when the interior of the pipe begins to break down, causing the materials to become sharper. Everything that passes by catches on the sharp edges and more material begins to build up. The constant pulling of materials catching then passing down the pipe can cause a collapse of the pipe wall, which can cause much larger issues for you to deal with.
