Common Causes of A Blocked Sewer Drain
Before we delve into the details of our services, let’s look at the primary reasons behind a blocked sewer drain.
1. Tree roots
Tree roots are one of the primary causes of stormwater and sewer blockages. As roots search for water, they can infiltrate pipes through cracks and joints, eventually growing into a tangled mass.
Over time, this can cause a significant obstruction, reducing water flow and leading to backups. When roots trap other debris, the problems heighten, creating more extensive blockages.
2. Grease and fat build-up
Grease, fats, and oils are common culprits for blocked sewer lines. These substances solidify and accumulate along the pipe walls when poured down drains.
Over time, the oils and fat build-up restricts water flow and can eventually lead to a complete blockage. Combined with other substances, like wet wipes, sanitary products, paper towels, and other foreign objects, they form a thick, stubborn mass.
3. Debris and foreign objects
Debris, such as leaves, twigs, and garbage, can easily enter stormwater systems, while foreign items like food scraps, paper towels, and toys can find their way into sewer systems.
These items can become lodged in pipes and create obstructions, impeding water flow and potentially causing overflows or backups. Proper disposal of waste can help prevent these issues.
4. Structural damage to pipes
A sewer drain can suffer structural damage for various reasons, including:
- Ground movement
- Poor installation.
Damaged pipes can collapse or become misaligned, causing blockages and disrupting water flow. Sometimes, a damaged pipe can also allow tree roots and soil to enter the system, worsening the problem.
5. Soil and sediment accumulation
Heavy rain can wash away loose soil and sediment, entering stormwater pipes and catching basins. Over time, this sediment can accumulate and create blockages, reducing the system’s efficiency and increasing the risk of flooding.
Implementing erosion control measures and regularly cleaning stormwater infrastructure can help prevent sediment-related blockages.
Regardless of the cause, our team of experts is fully equipped to diagnose and resolve your sewer woes.
Meet Your Sewer’s New Best Friend: Our 5-Step Solution
We follow a comprehensive 5-step process to remove the blockage, repair any damage, and prevent future issues.
Step 1: The Diagnosis of a Sewer Blockage
Our plumbers will assess the situation and use advanced technology, such as CCTV cameras, to pinpoint the exact location of the blocked drain.
This non-invasive method helps us avoid unnecessary digging and property damage.
Step 2: Unclogging the Blocked Sewer Line
Our professionals will use a combination of specialised equipment, such as a high-pressure water jetter or electric drain snake, to clear the blockage and flush away debris.
These techniques clear the obstruction and clean the inside of the pipes.
Step 3: Repair and Restore Your Sewer System
If your damaged pipes are due to your sewer drain being blocked, our team will repair or replace them as needed. We offer pipe relining, a trenchless solution that eliminates the need for excavation, and traditional pipe replacement when necessary.
Step 4: Prevention is Better Than Cure
To help prevent future blockages, we’ll provide expert advice and tips on proper sewer maintenance. This may include regular cleaning, tree root barrier installation, or adjustments to your daily habits.
Step 5: Ongoing Support
We stand by our work and offer ongoing support to ensure your satisfaction. If you experience any further issues, our team will be ready to assist and provide the necessary services.
