Blocked Drains

The Common Causes Of Blocked Drains

Our CCTV drain inspection & electric eel will help quickly identify your blockage.

Toilet Paper, Wipes & Foreign Objects

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 if used abundantly more than usual.

Baby wipes, large soaps, plastics and make up wipes 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. Please, 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 will completely block your drain. This is certainly troublesome for people 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 and 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.

Tree Roots

Tree roots of nearby trees can grow, puncture and ultimately clog pipes. Furthermore, leaves and small twigs that get stuck in your outdoor drain will totally block your draining systems. Keep flora such as trees and shrubbery away from your drain and pipe lines.

Make sure to regularly clean the area around your drains to prevent this problem from happening. If you have a serious tree root blocking your drain then plumbing excavations may be required.

Our Blocked Drain Solutions & Process, Used Melbourne-Wide

Modern CCTV Camera Inspection

Our state of the art CCTV drain inspection cameras are used to identify 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.

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.

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 and we are meticulously careful to avoid contamination of any kind.

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. In more extreme case, full plumbing excavation may be required. 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.

The most common signs of a blocked drain are typically when you notice that your sink, shower or bath is draining much slower than usual. If you’re noticing that the water doesn’t drain at all or that your toilet is failing to flush then you may want to call a plumber immediately. Another common sign is low water pressure as well as foul odours coming from smelly drains.
