A blocked drain is an emergency

A blocked drain is considered a plumbing emergency and should be attended to immediately, by a fully qualified plumber, before the problem has time to escalate. Blocked drains can easily cause damage to your property, damage to your pipes, as well as cause a potential health risk due to harmful bacteria thriving in the stagnant water.

If you notice any of the following signs call the Adelaide blocked drain plumbers from ABA Plumbing & Gas on 08 8297 7637. We have a local plumber available 24/7 for emergency plumbing covering all metro areas:

  • Strong and unpleasant smells coming from your drains
  • Slow to no drainage in your sink, shower or bath
  • Gurgling sounds when draining water, taking a shower, flushing the toilet or using the washing machine
  • Toilet water levels are sitting too high or too low
  • Your toilet completely overflows
  • The overflow relief gully overflows when using the washing machine

The main causes of a blocked drain in Adelaide

At ABA Plumbing & Gas we have found that the main cause of a blocked drain in Adelaide is due to tree root infiltrations. If tree roots find their way into an underground pipe they will quickly grow and will soon either block or completely damage the pipe. Other reasons for a blocked drain include foreign objects being put into our sinks or flushed into our toilets such as food scraps, cooking oils, chemicals, hair, sanitary items etc. Collapsed and ageing pipework can also cause a blocked drain and recently we have noticed a number of blocked drains in Adelaide being due to incorrect pipe installations, often from DIY plumbing.

You can greatly reduce the risk of a blocked drain by simply being aware of what you are putting down your sinks and toilets as well as being mindful of which trees that you plant in your garden, in respect to how far their roots may grow and ensure they are not planted too close to any underground draining networks.

It is vital that you always hire a fully qualified plumber for any pipe installations, repairs, replacements or unblocking of drains. Otherwise you could risk extreme damage to your home or the safety of its residents.

Should you experience a blocked drain in Adelaide, call ABA Plumbing & Gas anytime of the day or night, 24/7, for a fast and professional repair. Online and pensioner discounts available.
