Drain Is Blocked



Blocked drains in Brisbane are a common problem that can easily affect homes and businesses of all sizes. If water is unable to flow freely through a sink, toilet, bathtub or any other opening, the drain may start to overflow and cause damage to the home or building. Because of this frustrating, yet common problem, many plumbers install overflow relief gullies which are designed to mitigate overflow outside of the home or building. A gully should be 110mm lower than the lowest fixture outside the house to prevent water from overflowing and causing an unwanted mess.

What are the causes of blocked drains?

As a specialist blocked drain plumber in Brisbane, we’ve pretty much seen it all. And the main culprit of blocked drains are:

  • Hair – once it gets into the pipes the hair tangles and then other debris becomes trapped with it
  • Food – small pieces of food, tea leaves, coffee grounds, fats and oils
  • Solid objects – wet wipes, flushable wipes, sanitary products, nappies and kids toys
  • Organic matter – tree roots, leaves, dirt and garden debris

How do I stop blocked drains?

There are some simple preventive measures you can take to help prevent blocked drains. We recommend always using a sink or drain strainer to catch any food waste and avoid pouring substances like oils down the sink. You should also remove any build-up of hair from the basin, bathtub or shower.

If you have a blockage, don’t risk damaging your pipes further, always make sure you contact a professional blocked drain plumber in Brisbane.
