Common Causes of Blocked Drains

Tree Roots

Tree roots can infiltrate and block your pipes, causing significant damage. As roots seek out moisture, they can penetrate small cracks in pipes and expand, leading to severe blockages and potential pipe ruptures.

Grease and Fat

Grease and fat buildup from kitchen waste can solidify inside your pipes, creating stubborn blockages. When grease and fat cool, they harden and stick to the pipe walls, narrowing the passage and trapping other debris.

Foreign Objects

Items such as wipes, sanitary products, and toys can cause blockages when flushed or washed down drains. These objects do not break down easily and can create significant obstructions in the plumbing system.

Hair and Soap Scum

Hair and soap scum can accumulate in bathroom drains, leading to blockages over time. Hair binds with soap residue and other particles, forming clumps that can restrict water flow and cause slow drainage.

Storm Debris

Leaves, dirt, and other debris can block outdoor drains during heavy rainfall. Storm debris can be washed into drainage systems, causing blockages that prevent proper water flow and increase the risk of flooding.

By understanding these common causes of blocked drains, you can take proactive steps to prevent them and maintain a healthy plumbing system.

Signs of a Blocked Drain

  • Slow-draining sinks, baths, or showers
  • Unpleasant odors from drains
  • Gurgling sounds in pipes
  • Water pooling around drains
  • Frequent toilet blockages

Preventing Blocked Drains

Regular Maintenance

Schedule regular drain cleaning and maintenance services to keep your plumbing system in optimal condition. Consistent maintenance helps prevent the buildup of debris and other materials that can lead to blockages.

Mind What You Flush

Avoid flushing wipes, sanitary products, and other non-degradable items. These materials do not break down easily and can cause significant blockages in your plumbing system.

Dispose of Grease Properly

Never pour grease or fat down the drain. These substances can solidify and accumulate inside the pipes, leading to stubborn blockages. Dispose of grease and fat in the trash instead. For more information, read more about grease trap waste from the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF).

Install Drain Guards

Use drain guards to catch hair, food particles, and other debris before they enter the drain. Drain guards are an effective and inexpensive way to prevent blockages and keep your drains flowing smoothly.

Tree Root Management

Regularly inspect and manage tree roots near your plumbing system. Tree roots can infiltrate pipes, causing significant damage and blockages. Proper management of tree roots helps protect your plumbing and prevents costly repairs.

By following these preventive measures, you can significantly reduce the risk of blocked drains and maintain a healthy plumbing system.

Jeremy was fast, efficient and did a great job fixing our toilet. He did a replacement - was down to get a new cistern and back and had it installed within the hour. My favorite thing about Jeremy was that he was so clean and tidy ! The most mess -conscious plumber I’ve ever met. I will definitely call Jeremy again for our plumbing needs.

I had a blocked and damaged drain pipe. Jeremy was able to make it out on a Saturday to get me out of a messy situation. He was punctual, very friendly and he showed me footage of the issues and explained the different options I had. After making a decision, he walked me through each step providing updates along the way. I was very happy with his service and would definitely recommend him.
