What Normally Gets Blocked?
What causes overflowing drains?
Overflowing drains are typically a result of drain blockages. Tree roots, sanitary products, excessive toilet paper or kitchen waste might block a drain. As the water pressure would grow due to the obstruction, the water would try to find alternative outlets and cause an overflow.
The most common sign of an overflowing drain is the foul smell of the sewer water. Moreover, you might also be able to see the overflowing water on the surface. You may avoid overflowing drains by arranging for regular maintenances.
Gardening can be wonderful and fun but it is important to know where your sewer and stormwater drains are laid before planting certain flora. Cracks and spaces in your pipes are especially vulnerable to strong, deep roots and can cause significant damage to your pipe’s health and your wallet! Out of all the blocked drain issues throughout our 20+ years of plumbing experience, tree roots is the number one most common problem.
The most common cause of kitchen sink blockages is oil and waste scraps clogging the drains. Simply DO NOT pour oils down the kitchen sink, but instead pour it into containers to prevent the fats blocking your drain.
Regardless of wipes and female hygiene products being a kind of tissue, you SHOULD NOT flush them down the drain. We advise our customers to dispose of these into a rubbish bin and to remember that all wipes can cause blockages and issues with your drain.
Another common blockage problem is quantities of hair blocking drains. This can easily be prevented by using a hair catcher over your drain or simply remove the hairs from the drain after your shower
Leaves & Debris
Leaves and debris often block stormwater drains. Make sure they’re kept clear. What we recommend to our customers is to place a Protective Gutter Guard or a simple mesh covering over the drain to keep them clean and clear.
