A Timely Response Prevents More Than Inconvenience
Stopped drains are a nuisance that every NYC home will experience at least once. But it may be more of a nuisance than you realize. If a blocked and stopped drain is not resolved as soon as possible, other more serious issues can develop. The chances of exposing you and your family to bacteria, viruses, and other health issues will increase. From children’s toys that have been accidentally or purposely dropped down the drain, to excess hair in the drain, to dirty toilet water all over your bathroom floor. There is a list of reasons why your home can be plagued and contaminated by slow, stopped up, or blocked drains.
Trust A Professional For Timely and Long-term Drain Solutions
Knowing the why, when, and how stopped drains occur is helpful to you. You will give yourself a better chance of identifying the problem ahead of time so you can take the necessary steps to take preventive action. Purchasing drain cleaners and other equipment from your local store can come in handy. However, that does not usually resolve the problem long-term. There are some things you will need to know about fixing the issue for good. In many cases calendaring regular drain maintenance from a professional is your best solution.

What Causes Blocked and Stopped Drains?
As mentioned earlier, there are several reasons why your home’s drains can become stopped up, from toys, to hair. or other clogging items. Some of the other common reasons for stopped drains include the following:
- Heavy rain and thunderstorms: Learn about Public Sewer Surcharges
- Grease being placed down drains: Learn about grease blocked drains
- Lack of water flow or poor water flow
- Poor pipe installation, such as a lack of pitch or slope
- Dirt, debris, and plants flushed down a drain or toilet
- Cracked pipes
- Baby wipes, napkins, and other toiletries
Public Sewer Surcharges Can Appear as Blocked or Stopped Drains
When we are in NYC’s rainy and wet season, many drains will become flooded due to the excess amount of water. The buildup of water can become a common occurrence in more NYC households due to the drain’s inability to handle the heavy rainfall. More frequently however, it is the city sewer itself that gets surcharged. If you live in an area where public sewer surcharges occur, you should strongly consider installing a sewer valve. Note that sewer surcharges appear just like stopped drains. But when there is a surcharge, there is little you can do but wait for the public sewer to start flowing again.
When your home’s pipes begin to break due to one or more problems, the chances of blockage will rise because the pipes are damaged. Pipes should be checked for any signs of breaks or cracks so the pipe can be repaired before it leads to a bigger problem. In the case of a backpitch, some smaller branch lines can have their pitch corrected in just a few minutes. Trust a professional from Balkan to find the fastest and least costly solution.
Improper Drain Pipe Installation
Blocked and stopped drains can also occur due to pipes that were installed poorly. We certainly understand that many homeowners will attempt to repair the issue on their own. You may want to save money, and believe you can solve the problem. However, we do not recommend that homeowners try to install pipes. If you attempt to install your own pipes or fix the proper installation of the pipes, your pipes can eventually begin flowing incorrectly. In many cases you could fracture the pipes, and cause even more damage.
Note that drain pipes installed incorrectly may take a long time to fail, or start backing up. Unlike water lines that will leak if installed incorrectly, drain pipes can takes years to fill with grease, or fail.
