What's That Gurgling? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help if your sink gurgles at you.

You were planning on driving up to see the manatees today, but those plans changed when your sink started talking to you. Well, not talking exactly, more like gurgling.

What causes a sink to make gurgling noises? Basically, a clog or blockage.

“The gurgling noise coming from your sink is actually caused by air escaping from the drain. It’s important to note: this air should NOT be there in the first place. The air causing that noise is located inside your pipes where it is applying pressure — via push or pull — on the water in your drain’s P-trap,” according to directenergy.com.

Directenergy.com explains further: “When the exit is not completely clear for air passage, the obstruction and subsequent air pressure it creates can cause suction in the drain. It pulls on the water in the P-trap, making the air movement audible, and as water appears in the drain, it applies additional pressure as it navigates the obstruction.

“There can be many reasons for the obstruction, but in kitchen and bathroom drains, it’s often the result of materials like grease or hair – stuff that should have been disposed of in another manner. Once these materials enter your drain, they get caught in the piping and form a clog.”

The answer to the problem is simple – clear out the clog. But sometimes the clog clearing is anything but simple. Sometimes the clog is too big or too wedged into the pipe or too far down for you to clear yourself.
