Possible Causes of Blocked Drains
Tree Root Infiltration
Foreign Objects and Debris
Cracked or Broken Pipes
Cracked or broken pipes can restrict the flow of water and trap waste in the drain causing a blockage. The best solution for this type of blocked drain is to cut and replace the section of pipe affected.
A broken or cracked pipe will stop water flowing freely, and the build-up of water might cause the drain to collapse completely. Broken pipes are commonly caused by poor installation, age and grown tree roots.
Blockages in underground pipes need extensive investigation to identify where the problem is, so not surprisingly, it’s expensive and, depending on where the problem lies, can be very disruptive. Sameday plumbers will charge for a quote fee in a job like this, so make sure you find out how much your plumber will charge per-hour, before you get them on site.
If you suspect there may be a fracture in your pipes, it’s best to call a Jetset professional to come out and take a look. Check the pipes for visible leaks or inside the home for water staining on the ceiling which can be a leading problem as a result of broken pipes.
Drainage Back Fall
Gravity fed drainage is only designed to flow one way, when water or waste must travel upwards pipes quickly back up. Incorrectly or poorly installed drainage often causes back fall and blocked drains. This is why drainage is all about gravity. Incorrect pipe installation leads to the build-up of particles and debris which eventually results in blocked drains. Ensure water flows correctly it is essential that that pipes are installed correctly.
Construction waste is a very common problem in new homes and renovations. Concrete, tile grout, and dirt are the most common materials. But do not worry; in some cases, we can even remove concrete from a pipe with our equipment. Construction waste may contain lead, asbestos or other hazardous substances. Much building waste is made up of materials such as bricks, concrete and wood damaged or unused for various reasons during construction.
