A blocked drain is a common plumbing inconvenience, which requires investigation to its location and cause in order to be rectified. Here are some of the common blocked drain issues, and their causes.
The main sewer line leading from the council sewer to your home can be blocked due to tree roots, accumulation of waste or a bow in the pipes. A drain cleaning machine will need to be used to remove the blockage. In some cases, a drain camera may need to be used to locate the cause of the blockage to prevent it happening again.
A blocked toilet can be caused from too much paper waste, not enough water flow or flushing the wrong waste. The toilet should only flush pee, poo and paper as quoted by Qld Urban Utilities. Children can flush toys or unknown objects down the toilet. Often a plunger can remove the blockage, but in some cases, a machine may need to be used to remove the blockage.
Blocked Shower or Bath Drain
A blocked shower or bath drain is usually caused by an accumulation of hair and soap, which can congeal at the bottom of the drain. This sludge can cause waste water to back up through the drain.
Blocked Basin Drain
Basin drains can catch hair, toothpaste and soap and this can cause the s-trap to block up if not enough water is used to drain away. Sometimes the trap may need to be replaced or cleaned out to clear the waste.
A blocked floorwaste can be caused from the accumulation of hair, shampoos, soaps and other elements that are flushed down the basin waste, shower waste and bath waste. Be mindful of what gets flushed down these drains to ensure the floor waste doesn’t back up. A foul smell is an indication of the floorwaste about to be blocked.
Blocked Sink Drain
Sinks drains can clog due to food scraps and oils being washed down the drain. Prevent a blockage by always using the sink plug strainer. Avoid pouring fats and oils down the sink as this can congeal and cause a blockage. Place food in the bin. Foods like rice and cereal expand when wet, and this can cause the sink to block.
Blocked Stormwater Drain
A blocked stormwater drain can be cause from water run off that moves sand, dirt, leaves and even rubbish into the stormwater grate and pit. Be vigilant in cleaning gutters and checking downpipes to prevent blockages.
