What causes a blocked drain and how to prevent blockages?

 

Blocked sink

There are many items that can lead to your drains to become blocked. Food items, grease and oil are probably the most common culprits when it comes to blockages in the kitchen sink. Where possible use a strainer to prevent food items from getting into the drain. Always use a paper towel to wipe oil, fat, grease off pots and pans and dispose of the paper towel in the general waste bin, rather than pouring it down the kitchen sink.

 

Slow draining shower

In the shower or bathtub soap and hair are your typical offenders here. To prevent slow shower draining and eventual shower drain blockage. Try to prevent little pieces of soap from getting washed into the drain and always remove of hair after showering. If you find that you or a family member ‘sheds’ a lot when washing their hair have them brush or comb their hair before getting into the shower.

 

Blocked bathroom vanity basin

For bathroom vanities again we find hair and soap are also the common transgressors. This time hair from beard trimmings are suspect. So, make sure any bearded man disposes of his trimmings in the garbage bin and not washed down the drain.

Blocked stormwater drains

Leaves and tree roots are the prime causes of blockage in external drain around your home such as stormwater and sewer drains.

There is not much you can do to prevent this from occurring except planting large trees and bushes away from known stormwater or sewer pipes.

Because these drains are buried beneath the ground it’s extremely difficult to identify where the blockage is and even harder to remove it. It’s situations like these where calling in a professional is your best bet. We use state of the art CCTV drain inspection cameras to locate the cause of the blockage. If we find that it is indeed a root, we use a specialised root cutting tools to cut the remove the root without digging up you yard!
