What Causes Blocked Drains?

If you have unpleasant odours, gurgling sounds, overflow, or slow flowing drains then you likely have a blockage. Addressing a partial blockage early can help save both money and time, preventing it from turning into a complete blockage.

Once a drain is fully blocked, water may start to backflow through your toilets or sinks, posing significant health risks. Both blocked sewer and stormwater drains can be major concerns for your health and well-being.

Foreign Objects in Plumbing

Foreign Objects

We often find blocked drains have been caused by attempting to flush down items like wet wipes, sanitary products, paper towels, and even toys! These objects don’t break down easily and can get stuck in the pipes, acting as magnets for other debris.

If you find that your drain has been blocked by a foreign object, give us a call on 0402 247 000 and we will help you unblock your drain.

Blocked Plumbing from Grease and Fat

Grease & Fat

Grease and cooking oils are notorious culprits that cause blocked drains. Pouring leftover fats down the drain can lead to a slimy mess as they coat the pipe walls. This traps food scraps and causes nasty blockages over time. Often, this can also cause your drains to produce foul smells.

If you find yourself with a blocked drain, give us a call on 0402 247 000 so we can help you fix it right away!

Soap Scum and Hair Buildup in Plumbing

Hair & Soap Scum

Hair and soap scum are notorious culprits behind blocked drains. In the bathroom, hair easily accumulates and combines with soap residue, forming stubborn clumps. Over time, these sticky masses build up in the pipes, restricting water flow and causing pesky clogs that need intervention.

Statewide Plumbing and Maintenance are here to help you, give us a call on 0402 247 000 today!

Blockage in Drain from Tree Roots

Tree Roots

Trees can extend their roots into drain pipes, seeking water and nutrients. As these roots grow and spread, they can exert pressure on the pipes, leading to blockages and sometimes even pipe damage.

If you have a drain problem, give us a call on 0402 247 000 so we can get your drain back to normal!

Backflow prevention

Other common causes include:

  • Pipework damage due to earth movements causing cracks or sagging.
  • Blockage resulting from incorrect installation.
  • Corrosion caused by age or chemicals poured into sinks.
  • Accumulation of leaves and branches from neglected gutter clearing.
  • Drains clogged with leaves, dirt, and debris during heavy rainfall.
