In most instances, a blocked drain just won’t suddenly occur; it will usually start out as a partial blockage which builds up over time until the pipe is completely blocked. There are some signs that may indicate a partial blocked drain on your property:
- Strong odours emitting from your drains
- A drop in water pressure
- Slower than normal drainage in your sinks, basins, showers or tubs
- Gurgling noises in your pipes
- Your toilet water level sits higher or lower than usual
- Water backing up in your bathroom drains or overflow relief gully after using the washing machine

Drains become blocked for a number of reasons with the most common reason being from tree roots. A trees roots can easily penetrate even the most minute hairline crack in your pipework and soon grow to a large mass mixing with other matter, leaves and debris being flushed into the pipes eventually blocking the drain completely. Tree roots cause the majority of blockages in sewer and stormwater drains.
Another major contributor to blocked drains is from foreign objects such as hair, food scraps, cooking oils, paints, chemicals, sanitary napkins through to too much toilet paper being put into our sinks and toilets.
Other factors of blocked drains include the age of the pipework, incorrect pipe installations, ground movements and heavy rains and storms. Preventative maintenance such as; being mindful of what is going into your drains or toilets, regular clearing of your gutters, not planting trees too close to underground pipe networks and always enlisting a qualified plumber for any pipework repairs or new installations can dramatically reduce the risk of a blocked drain.
