Common Causes of Blocked Drains

There is normally only 5 reasons why you will be suffering from a blocked drain. You may be lucky and only be experiencing one of these but there are cases were people may experience more than one.

  • Tree Roots: Tree roots are one of the worst causes for blocked drains as they only require a hair line crack in order to penetrate the pipe and start growing.
  • Foreign Objects: This is the most typical blocked drain. It is normally a build of of excessive toilet paper as well as an accumulation of things that shouldn't be or put down the drain. This can include:
    • Food Scraps
    • Soap Scum
    • Oils
    • Baby Wipes
    • Hair
    • Fish
    • Toys
    • Other miscellaneous items
  • Misalignment / Breakages: This normally happens due to improper installation or if the pipes used were not meant to be used underground. When pipes are broken or misaligned, solids with in the waste water can become stuck and cause a blockage.
  • Pipe Collapse: This is quite rare but is more susceptible to happen to an older style homes due to older pipes and earth movement over years of being buried. There are occasions where pipes have collapsed from heavy machinery or objects being on area with drainage underneath.
  • Soil Settlement Pipes work using gravity by being slightly sloped the water travels down the pipe however sometimes due to ground movement or poor installation there is no slop or even worse a negative slope. Both of the latter will cause your drains to block up.
