Blocked Drains Sunshine Coast

Blocked drains are not nice. Aside from the huge inconvenience to your household, they are also disgusting. They are alive with bacteria which will ultimately produce a health risk, and the odour is not too inviting.

Understanding how your drain or water pipes have become blocked is a good way to prevent it happening in the future. We have provided you with a list of the most common reasons below.

While prevention is always the best cure, that doesn't help in an emergency. We are always available to assist with blocked pipes and drains in an emergency.

Hair Blockages

One of the most common causes of blocked drains is a build up of hair. It's a good idea to remove hair from the shower or sink waste frequently especially if you have someone with long hair in your household.

Plants & Trees

Tree and shrub roots in our Queensland environment will head straight for your drains and find an entrance if they can. Leaves in your guttering are a big problem and you should clean guttering regularly or install gutter guards. Maintaining these outdoor threats are a good preventive measure.

Grease

Kitchen grease and fat washed down the sink will cause build up on the inside of your drains, which hair and other debris will stick to. Eventually nothing will get through and clearing it can be quite a challenge.

Toiletries

Disposable toiletries such as nappies, wet wipes and other sanitary products are a big culprit when it comes to blocking pipes and sewers. We have even found children's toys and soap blocking drains and pipes. If you would rather avoid the cost of having your drains un-blocked, we suggest you ensure these products are properly disposed of.

Heavy Rain and Storms

Flooding water is more likely to affect downpipes and guttering, but is also an indication when drains are not flowing as they should.

Household Water Flow

Is your water not gushing normally as it should? Low water pressure may indicate a build up of mineral deposits in your shower head or taps. We can ensure your household pressure is returned to normal by checking and cleaning all your fittings and pipes.

Poor Installation

We often see DIY disasters where incorrect water flow or fractured pipes cause problems which can sometimes prove costly to repair. It is always best to have a plumber install your pipes, and certainly best to call us to repair any problems you might be experiencing.
