Causes of drains blockages

Easier than you think, and the big objects (sticks, wipes, etc.) surprisingly are not the most likely culprit. Blocked drains are commonly blocked over time by smaller items instead of singular or fewer larger objects. Drains are blocked with either natural or foreign objects.

Typically sticks, leaves, and other naturally occurring materials, especially after heavy rainfall or if your sewer and stormwater pipes leading to the outlet are close to large trees. If your property is lucky enough to have their pipes relined the chance of roots protruding are substantially reduced compared to old cement pipes which can crack and leak over time.

Foreign objects are the most common culprit and are easily avoided. Objects such as hair, dirt, soap scum, toilet paper, baby wipes, sanitary items, etc. over time can build up and create minor or in big enough quantiles cause significant blockages.

How to avoid blocked drains

Knowing the basics of what can be flushed down toilets, poured down sinks and basins is the first step of preventing your drain from blocking. Number one rule, anything that isn’t water (optimistically) should be poured down any sink, basin or shower and nothing except for toilet paper should be flushed down a toilet. However, we acknowledge this is not entirely plausible especially when you have children, multiple roommates, and employees. There are some extra steps which will prevent the incidence of your drain blocking, such as:

  • Strainers in kitchen sinks, showers to catch food scraps, hair, etc.
  • Gates and leaf diverters in outdoor gutters and culverts.
  • Regular maintenance for early identification of any blockages.

How we unblock your drains

We check your drains, sounds simple and with our CCTV cameras it is, it removes the requirements of excavating to pinpoint a blockage if it is under your front yard or under you’re your property.

Depending on the block, the first step will usually be to use electric eels, and if this is not successful, we bring out the big guns, the Water Jetter and send high-pressure water to unblock the drain. From here if pipes have been compromised we will go full force with no-dig pipe relining but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The water jetting process usually does the trick.

However, if your home or properties pipes do need relining (usually due to tree roots) we don’t do anything by halves, we use a tree root inhibitor to make sure that tree roots have no chance of getting back in.
