Ask a Plumber in Cherry Hill: Why Do My Drains Gurgle So Much?

When you run your shower or sink faucets, you want to the resulting wastewater to be carried away from your home through the plumbing in your house quickly, effectively and quietly. Loud, gurgling drains are very annoying, and they may actually indicative of problems or problems to come with your drains.

One very common reason that your drains may gurgle during use is simply because some sort of blockage has built up within that drain. This is especially common in the kitchen, where misuse of garbage disposals often leads to food scraps and grease to build up. As the water drains, it may cause some air to be trapped behind the clog. Once the water makes its way through, that air can come gurgling back up towards your sink through the clog.

Many homeowners do not realize that the drainpipes in their homes are also vented. This is what allows water to flow through them so smoothly. If there is not adequate venting, gases can build up in your pipes. This can lead to unpleasant odors and exposure to gases that can be unhealthy, so it is important that a seemingly minor issue with gurgling drains is investigated by a qualified, licensed plumber. Any issues with your plumbing should always be considered a priority. After all, most serious problems do not suddenly develop out of nowhere.
