Signs Your Drain is Clogged
Drains Run Slow
One sign you have a clogged drain is when water takes a moment to drain out of the sink. Another sign is when you notice while showering that you are standing in water because it is not draining out fast enough. These are the warning signs that you may have a larger problem. Don’t wait to fix your slow drain. Call Peaden, and we will clean your drain before it causes major damage to your home.
Drains Clog Often
If the drains in your home continue to clog, even after you have tried to clean them yourself, you may have a much more serious clog. Peaden can send an expert plumber to fix the clog once and for all.
There is a Bad Smell Coming From Your Drain
Bad odors coming from the drains in your home are a sign you might have a more serious problem. Over time, sewage and waste can stick to the inside of your pipes, reducing the amount of water that can flow through them. Peaden has the tools to fix your plumbing and eliminate the foul odors coming from your drains.
Multiple Clogged Drains
When you have more than one clogged drain in your home, it can be a sign that your main sewer line is clogged. This is a major plumbing issue that needs the attention of a professional. The plumbers at Peaden have the experience to fix clogged main sewer lines and get your plumbing working.
Flooding or Overflowing Drain
This is a sign that you need to have your drains cleaned. When drains back up and water is flooding, Peaden can respond with our 24-hour emergency plumbing service. We are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to respond to your plumbing emergency.
The Drain Cleaning Process
When you have a stubborn clogged drain in your Panama City or Gulf Coast home, our team at Peaden has several tools and techniques to unclog your drain and get things flowing smoothly again. These include:
- Snaking – A long, flexible wire or coil is inserted in the pipe, with specialized heads to grab and pull the clog out.
- Augering – Similar to snaking, a heavy-duty coil is placed in the pipe, and a motorized powerhead spins and advances the cutting heads to remove or dislodge the clog.
- Hydro jetting – Specialized spray heads mounted on a long coiled tube are inserted in the pipe, and high-pressure streams of water cut through and dislodge the clog.
- Pipe camera inspections – Pipe camera inspections use a small camera mounted to the end of a long cable to look inside a pipe and identify the cause of the clog.

Drain Cleaning FAQs
What can go down my drains without causing clogs?
In the bathroom, avoid flushing anything but waste and toilet paper down the toilet. Paper towels, tissues, baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, and “flushable” moist wipes can cause clogs. Add drain screens or baskets to sinks, tubs, and showers to catch hair and soap particles. Avoid washing grease or fats down the drain in the kitchen. Instead, throw them in the garbage once cool. Place strainers or baskets in sinks to catch food particles and other material.
Will a clogged sewer line behave differently than a clogged inside line?
A clogged sewer line will stop all the drains in your home from flowing properly, whereas a clogged inside line will only affect the fixtures that feed into it. Sewer clogs tend to be denser and harder to remove, especially if they are formed due to pipe damage or tree root growth.
Do clogged lines need to be replaced?
Usually, clogged drain lines can easily be cleaned and put back into service, though some may have permanent buildups that could benefit from a pipe replacement. Sewer lines that clog often typically do so due to pipe damage or tree root infiltration. A pipe replacement may be the best long-term solution.
Can I do DIY maintenance to keep drains clean?
The best thing you can do to help keep drains clean is be careful about what you flush down the drains. It is also beneficial to schedule a plumbing inspection every year or so with our team at Peaden, which can be added as part of your maintenance plan. If you have problematic drains, drain cleaning services can also be a preventive measure.
