What causes a blocked drain?

There are many things that can cause a blocked drain and the toughest to prevent comes from tree roots. These can enter the sewerage system through hair line cracks and grow extensively, causing the waste to build up and create a blockage.

Broken or collapsed drains are another common cause for blockages. Although PVC drains are much more resistant to roots, they are more susceptible to crushing and their connections snapping from ground movement.

Burst pipes can also be a problem when dealing with blocked drains.

Additionally, everyday domestic use of plumbing also contributes to blocked drains. Things like hair, soap, grease and cat litter can accumulate in your plumbing and lead to drain blockages.

We recommend being cautious of certain toiletries being flushed down your toilet, including baby wipes, nappies and sanitary products.

Other foreign objects that cause blocked drains often come from a kitchen—food scraps, cooking oil and coffee grinds can cause serious blockages.

A blocked drain filled with food and coffee grinds, one of the common ways plumbing and drains can become blocked.
