What causes blocked drains, and how to prevent them?
Blocked toilet – blocked toilets are often caused by flushing excess toilet paper, or items that shouldn’t be flushed. Common items include kids toys and clothing. We recommend you keep the toilet paper to a minimum, and the lid down.
Blocked kitchen sink – blocked sinks are most often due to food scraps or fatty or greasy foods being put down the sink. This can even block waste disposal units. Avoid putting these items down the sink.
Blocked shower drain – blocked showers are usually caused by buildup of hair or soap scum in the drain. Try cleaning the trap before calling one of our specialist plumbers.
Blocked sewer – blocked sewers are often caused by tree roots. We can cut back tree roots for you, and water blast other blockages away. We’re also qualified drain layers so we can fix cracked or broken pipes, or lay new pipes for you.
