Causes of Blocked Drains

Blocked drains can arise from various issues ranging from simple to complex. Understanding these causes can help prevent future blockages and maintain a smooth running system.

One of the most common causes of blocked drains in both residential and commercial premises is the accumulation of foreign objects or debris. This can include anything from food remnants, hair, and soap scum to more substantial items mistakenly flushed down the toilet.

Grease and fat from cooking can solidify inside pipes, gradually building up until water flow is significantly obstructed. Disposing of such materials correctly can greatly reduce the risk of blockages.

Tree roots seeking moisture can invade and damage pipes, leading to severe blockages. This is more common in older properties with aging plumbing that might not be fully sealed against such intrusions. Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can help prevent root-related blockages.

Poorly installed pipes or connections with the wrong gradient, joints, or diameter can quickly lead to blocked drains. Such installations hinder the flow of wastewater, making it easier for solid materials to accumulate and cause blockages.

What to Do After Drains Block

Encountering a blocked drain can be a nuisance, but taking the right steps can mitigate the problem until professional help arrives.

Resist the temptation to use excessive force in trying to unclog the drain yourself. Plungers can sometimes help, but avoid using harsh chemical drain cleaners as they can damage your plumbing.

Reduce water usage to prevent adding more pressure to the blockage. This includes avoiding flushing toilets repeatedly, taking showers, or using the dishwasher and washing machine.

If you can easily see and reach the cause of the clog without dismantling any plumbing, you may attempt to remove it. However, if the blockage is not visible or easily accessible, it’s time to call in the experts.

Professional plumbers have the necessary tools and expertise to diagnose and fix blocked drains accurately. AJ Plumbers Sydney offers reliable services with quick response times to help you get your plumbing back in working order.
