All plumbing systems can develop clogs. Clogs are a problem that can be made serious if not taken care off immediately. Since the water has no place to go it will all come back up into the household plumbing in one way or another. If you have a clogged drain, you should not use any of the plumbing in the home until the stoppage is cleared.  There are a lot of DIY remedies out there, but they might not be enough. In some instances, the problem may not just be limited to one plumbing fixture, but to a main sewer drain. If your sink, tub, or shower is draining slowly, the drainpipe is probably clogged with items ranging from hair to soap. If clogged with obstructions to the extent that you are unable to remove them yourself, then a drain cleaning service may be needed.  Listed are some signs that may indicate that you might have to use a drain cleaning service.
•    A very significant example of a drain clog that may be affected by the main sewer drain is when more than one plumbing fixture backs up at the same time.

•    Slow draining of water from your toilet, bathtub, sink or other fixture can indicate a clog. Toilets, in particular, have the most direct path to the sewer and the biggest drain line in the house, so if there is a problem with the drain you will more than likely notice a clog here.  Other drains typically affected by a drain stoppage are those in the tub and shower. Check whether the tub and shower drains are blocked if you suspect a drain clog.

•    If flushing the toilet results in water backing up or coming up into the tub or shower, this is usually a clear sign of a sewer drain clog. The flushed water that cannot go down the sewer drain flows back up the pipes and comes out at the lowest point, which is usually the shower drain.

•    Another strange reaction to look for is trapped air in the plumbing system. This indicated by toilet bowl water bubbling when you run the sink closest to the toilet. This is an indication of a clog in the main sewer drain and not the toilet.

•    Gurgling sounds from drains, especially after running a washing machine or dishwasher usually indicate that a drain is clogged.

•    An unexpected sign of a sewer drain clog can happen when you run the washing machine. If the water draining out of the washing machine causes the toilet to overflow or backs up into the tub or shower it could be the main drain.

•    If you see a mysterious puddle of water on the floor near a tub or sink, you might have a serious drain clog.
A clogged drain can often be more trouble than you might initially believe it to be. If you experience one or more of these issues, you might be dealing with a serious drain problem.  In such instances, it is better to call a drain cleaning service. Call immediately to prevent a worse clog or backup.
