Common causes of blocked drains

Blocked drains are a pain, they seem to happen when you least expect it and can cause chaos for the household. Some of the most common reasons for blocked drains are:

  • Tree roots
  • Foreign objects
  • Misalignment or breakages
  • Pipe collapse
  • Soil settlement

Blocked drains are preventable

Before blocked drains become blocked there are a few things that you can do to stop it from happening entirely or to slow it down.

  • Remove excess hair from the bottom of the shower after each use. Over time any hair that makes its way down the drain will bond with the soap from the bottom of the shower making it a thick mass that can block a pipe easily.
  • Never clean out a hairbrush and flush it down the toilet. Instead, put it into a small bin in the bathroom or into a compost bin outside.
  • Never flush foreign objects such as baby wipes, sanitary pads, tissues, cotton makeup removing pads or goldfish. Whether the packaging states it is flushable or not you should put these into the bin. No manufacturer is going to pay to unblock their product from your drain.
  • Know when to plunge. If you notice that your toilet or drain is draining slower than normal you can hit it with a plunger to try and dislodge the blockage yourself. If this doesn't work, its time to call a professional.

Pipe relining in St George

After having your pipes cleared depending on the reasons behind the blockage you may want to have your pipes relined. This process is relatively straightforward and can increase the life of your pipes up to 50 years. Having your pipes relined also increase the tensile strength of the existing pipe making it impossible to crack.
