What Causes Blocked Drains?

Toilet Paper or Wipes

Toilet paper and other similar products can block your drain when flushed in excessive amounts. Although toilet paper should be flushed after use, just be aware that it can stick together and may cause an obstruction.

Baby wipes and feminine napkins are not designed to be flushed down the toilet. These items will not disperse and will rather expand when exposed to water. It is never a good idea to flush them down the drain. Use the trash can instead.

Human Hair

We constantly shed our hair whenever we take a bath. This may seem to be a harmless occurrence at first but ultimately, its build-up can be a cause for major headaches for homeowners.

Hair blockage can also occur in hand basins and other fixtures that have drains inside the bathroom. It is imperative that you are aware of the possible effects of hair accumulating over your drains before the situation gets worse.

Food Waste

Food waste is one of the most dreaded particles of a plumbing system. The fats, oil, and food particles can combine into one huge hard, sticky, and very stubborn ball that can completely block your drain. This is certainly troublesome for people like restaurant owners or kitchen lovers.

Avoid flushing food particles and kitchen waste down the bathtub or laundry drains. The pipes and plumbing systems are not designed to work with these types of particles, especially when they cool down and solidify.

Mineral Deposits

This scenario greatly depends on the type of water you have in your area. If you live in an area where you’re using hard water, there’s this huge chance of pipe blockage. Hard water, as it is defined, is the quantity of dissolved minerals present in the water.

If the water in your area has large amounts of dissolved calcium and magnesium, for example, the higher are the chances that there will be build-up and clogging in your pipes. Regular cleaning and maintenance should be done if you’re living in locations where you’re using hard water.

Particles of Old Pipes

The pipes in our property don’t last forever. They will always be prone to degradation over time. The pipes often lose their structural integrity and disintegrate into small particles. These particles, in turn, mix into other particles and minerals and combine to become a lump of solidified mass.

When you encounter this kind of problem, it may be time to replace those old pipes. Call a professional plumber to help you with this issue.

Foreign Objects

Foreign objects or items that are not supposed to be flushed down the drain is a serious issue. A toy or any hard, solid object can totally block your pipes. Common items like a child’s toy or plastic containers, or a chunk of soap that have been flushed through your kitchen sink, shower drain, or toilet bowl will cause you a lot of trouble.

Even leaves or small twigs that get stuck in your outdoor drain will totally block your draining systems. Keep these kinds of debris away from your drain. Make sure to clean the area around your drains to prevent this problem from happening.

Our Blocked Drain Solutions, Used Melbourne-Wide

5 Gold Stars

Hot Water Jet Blasting

We use hot water jet blasting technology to shoot high pressure jets of water into pipes to break down stubborn debris that may be causing complex blockages. This method is one of the most effective and cost-effective ways to clear blocked drains.

Modern CCTV Camera Inspection

Our state of the art cameras is used to identify the most severe drain blockages. Our CCTV camera allows us to pinpoint the exact location of the block and the root cause of the blockage. After we have identified the block, this then enables us to formulate a clear and concise action plan.

Chemical Drain Cleaning

We stock specialised chemical draining equipment, mostly used in sewers. In some cases where giant tree roots are interfering with pipelines, we may consider using chemicals to clear them which will stop them from growing the same place again and causing the same amount of damage. Our chemicals are safe for kids, plants and animals.

Pipe Relining

In some cases where the block drain or drains have led to major damage or cracks in the pipes, we then have to consider replacing a portion of the pipe or the entire pipeline. Our expert plumbers will determine the best course of action to get the pipe permanently fixed while considering the best cost-effective option for you.
