Keep reading more from Adelaide blocked drains plumber about why you’re having this issue in the first place, how to prevent this plumbing problem before it becomes a bigger issue and how to organise a professional drain clearing with the least hassle to you.

Blocked drains are one of the most common plumbing issues for Adelaide households and it is something we all want to avoid. If you are facing drain issues, again and again, it is likely a warning sign of a bigger problem in your drains that you must fix immediately. Drain problems are hugely inconvenient so it’s important you know what you’re dealing with and seek a professional Adelaide blocked drain plumber to remedy your situation for good.

Reasons for Drain Blockages

Some of the most common reasons that we have come across for recurrent Adelaide drain blockages are:

  • Bad installation: Poor plumbing installation or errors made by the plumber while installing your drainage system can lead to incorrect flow and recurrent blockages. Always have a good, experienced, and licensed plumber install your pipes and drainage system to ensure 100% efficiency and to avoid costly repairs.
  • Broken pipes: If your toilet, sinks, bathtub, or shower is draining slowly even after multiple attempts to clear the line, you may have fractured or broken pipes due to general wear and tear or from tree roots invasion. Pipes can break over time and fractured pipes are the beginning stage that will eventually lead to a sewage backup as its more susceptible to blockages. Using harsh chemicals or drain cleaners to get rid of a slow drain and blockage can lead to more harm. Chemicals sit in the pipe and eat away at the PVC or cast iron leading to severely damaged pipes that need replacement.
  • Foreign objects: Another big reason for clogged drains is foreign objects or toiletry items. If you mindlessly toss down the drain, things such as diapers, nappies, wet wipes, napkins, sanitary products, soap bars, kid’s toys, and excessive tissue paper, would significantly increase the chances of having a drain or sewer clog.
  • Food particles and grease: grease, fat and scraps of food that go down the kitchen sink are common culprits for drain clogs and stubborn blockages. Many homeowners don’t know this, but grease is perhaps the nastiest and hardest drain issues to deal with. Grease clogged drains are a frustrating experience for any homeowner as everything gets smelly, messy, and unhygienic.
  • Hair: another quite common cause for blocked drains and very easily ignored by homeowners. While simple to remove before it travels further down the pipes, it can contribute to stubborn blockages in the drainpipe.
