Common Reasons for a Blocked Drain Adelaide

Posted by on April 22, 2019
Blocked drain Adelaide is a common and annoying problem experienced at some stage in almost every home and business. There are many reasons that drains will block and often the immediate symptom of the blockage is treated and not the underlying cause.

The five most common causes of a blocked drain Adelaide are:

Foreign objects or debris

Choked or blocked drainage can occur when foreign objects or materials such as hair or soaps, fats or food buildup become caught between the drainpipe and the pipes that flow underneath the home. At first the material may not fully block the drain, but over time materials will continue to collect which will prevent water from flowing freely and could eventually cause a blockage. Toilets regularly block up due to too much toilet paper, sanitary items and even nappies being flushed down the pipes. Young children are often the culprits for blocked toilets and drains. They have been known to flush a full roll of toilet paper, a kid’s toy and even the toilet brush. A blocked toilet Adelaide is very unpleasant and requires immediate action.

Heavy rains or storms

Outside drains may become blocked after storms or heavy rain downpours collecting leaves, dirt and other matter that can build up and block drains. Blocked drains Adelaide during heavy storms are very common as they are generally not designed to manage huge volumes of water. Blocked outside drains can cause flooding and damage to homes and businesses.

Damaged or broken pipes

Another cause of a blocked drain Adelaide can be a damaged pipe. If a pipe is broken the water cannot flow freely and it may collapse, causing the drain to have a blockage. The most usual causes of broken pipes are poor installation, age and tree roots. Tree roots cause huge damage underground and these types of blockages may require detailed investigation of underground pipes to identify where the problem is occurring. Underground pipe repairs can be disruptive and expensive depending on how difficult it is to access the problem area.

Faulty pipe installation

With the dramatic rise in popularity of do-it-yourself (DIY) repairs and home renovations, there has been a large increase in poorly installed plumbing and drainage pipes. Pipes may become misaligned or completely collapse if not properly installed. Choosing the right pipes is an integral part of any plumbing job and so it is vital that you have a full understanding of the pipe work required to do the job. Incorrect installation is not only dangerous but could also damage parts of your neighbour’s’ property, causing great expense to you and them.

Water flow issues

Water does not flow uphill, and drainage is all about gravity. Incorrect pipe installation with inadequate falls could contribute to the buildup of particles and debris and could eventually result in a blocked drain Adelaide. It is important that pipes are installed correctly to ensure adequate water flows. Drains become blocked for a wide variety of reasons, so it is important to understand what the underlying cause of the blocked drain Adelaide is. Blockages can build up over a period and you may get some early warning signs that there are some obstructions to the water flow. These include gurgling sounds after you flush a toilet, the water level in your sink or bath draining very slowly, and bad smells from sinks or drains.

Some blockages can be easily cleared using a plunger; however, treating the symptom may not address the underlying causes of the blocked drain Adelaide. If you have ongoing drainage problems or need to repair or lay drains, the best practice is to call a professional plumber. Using a professional plumbing service will ensure the job is done properly and save you money in the future.
