What Causes A Blocked Drain And How To Unblock Sewers?

Drains can easily become clogged or blocked, and you’ll quickly begin to see minor problems become major issues. The effects of a blocked drain include slowing down water flow, flooding, leakage of sewage, as well as erosion, and once it gets out of control, you’ll have to spend a lot on repairs. You need to consider how drains can be blocked in order to avoid them. 

Hair

No matter what length of hair you have, everyone is subject to a small amount of hair loss. This usually occurs whilst showering. Hair is one of the biggest causes of a blocked drain. Speak to your Brisbane plumber to see how you can prevent this from being a regular problem..

Tree roots causing blocked drains

Tree roots are a major cause of blocked drains in Brisbane. They are very clever and will find a entry point if water is available. They will continue to cause blockages until the pipe work is fixed. So if you are getting a blocked drain every 3 months after the drain has been cleared then you need to look at getting a drain camera to locate the entry point. It might only be a small section of pipe that need replacing so worth checking to save money moving forward.

Baby wipes & sanitary items

One of the biggest causes of blocked sewer drain are baby wipes and sanitary products . We unblock many sewer in Brisbane every week and a large portion are from baby wipes being flushed down the drains and toilets. They do not degrade and can cause drains to block over a short space of time. Please throw these items in the bin and do not flush them away.

Food waste & kitchen fats

Many people make the mistake of allowing food waste to be washed down their drains. The easiest way to minimise food waste is to use an organic waste bin. It applies mostly to waste such as tea leaves or coffee grounds. Grassy and oily foods should be treated with caution because they can get into your pipes and become rigid, leading to blockage.

Mineral build-up

The build-up of minerals that are dissolved in water may lead to the formation of insoluble materials that inevitably lead to the clogging of drains. Installing a water softener in your home can help alleviate this problem.

Soap

Conventional soap bars consist of grease or fat, which in turn combine with water minerals to form soap powder, which stains the bath fittings and eventually clogs your tub and the drain leading out of it. Switching away from soap bars to a gel when you’re washing will help prevent this from happening.

Dirt

Many people assume that drains and pipes literally have the function of washing everything away. If your aim is to remove excess dirt from your body or clothes, it may contribute to the build-up of dirt in your drains, causing your drains to be blocked.

Why you should deal with a blocked drain as quickly as possible

Blocked drains are common, and that is why plumbers are often called out to homes to make repairs. Keep in mind that you will experience drainage and pipe blockages in various ways in different areas of your home and often they are easily resolved. However, the link between all these forms of blockages is that leaving them unattended for a long time will lead to even more serious problems.

Why should you call a plumber for blocked drains?

Plumbers can use special tools such as cameras to look into your draining system to determine any minor problems that could turn into much bigger ones later on. Any recurring sewage issue is worth getting a professional in because you might be facing major problems. Even something small — like a bath that clogs every time you give your dog a wash — if it keeps happening, it can turn into a bigger concern.

Plumbing issues often involve dealing with waste water that you otherwise wouldn’t want to touch. Calling a plumber ensures the safe, fastest and cleanest solution and prevents you from having to get your hands dirty – or touching something you probably shouldn’t.

If the toilets or other fixtures leak, avoid using water and call a plumber as soon as possible. They will analyse the problem and let you know what is causing it. This is often a more intense pipe cleaning, and sometimes, it can be a detailed test of your overall home and its relation to the local sewage lines.

There are a lot of things that call for help from a professional plumber. Take advantage of the skill and experience of a master plumber to solve your most annoying plumbing problems and you’ll be able to save a lot of money and stress in the future.
