BLOCKED & LEAKING PIPES
Have you noticed?
- Unpleasant odours from your drains.
- Gurgling sounds.
- Slow-draining sink, showers, baths.
- Toilet water levels are low or high.
- Water pooling outside.
These can be signs that your property has a blocked drain.
The most common causes of blocked drains in Adelaide’s homes:
- Foreign Objects: Items like hair, soap scum, food particles, and small objects can accumulate and block pipes over time.
- Grease and Oil: Pouring cooking grease and oil down the drain can lead to buildups that restrict water flow.
- Tree Roots: Tree roots can infiltrate pipes, causing blockages and damage as they grow.
- Toilet Paper and Hygiene Products: Flushing excessive toilet paper or non-flushable items can clog toilet drains.
- Mineral Buildup: Minerals in hard water can accumulate and form deposits inside pipes.
- Collapsed or Damaged Pipes: Aging or damaged pipes can collapse or develop cracks, leading to blockages.
- Poor Drain Design: Incorrectly sloped or designed drains may not allow water to flow freely, causing backups.
- Heavy Rainfall or Flooding: Heavy rain can overwhelm sewer systems, leading to temporary blockages.
- Construction Debris: During construction or remodelling, debris can inadvertently enter drainage systems.
- Deterioration and Corrosion: Over time, pipes can deteriorate or corrode, reducing their capacity.
