Tips to Avoid Blocked Drains Problems

Do you think about your drains and sewers on a daily basis? But wait until when something goes wrong with your drain, and things get out of hand and it can be the most stressful thing for any home or business owner. Faulty drain system can bring your whole house to a standstill and be a major source of commotion. If you have ever experienced clogged or blocked drains Adelaide, you know how devastating and costly it can be, not to mention the safety and health risks. We know there is nothing worse than finding your bathroom or kitchen flooded with murky, soapy, wastewater. Standing water in the sinks, showers, toilets, and baths is a sure sign that you have clogged drainage. It can be caused by anything – from a small blockage to a major and more stubborn obstruction in the main sewer line. At RD Plumbing Solutions we can instantly help you in event of a blocked drain emergency, preventing such problems is much better as it saves you from panic and future occurrences.

If you have a slow draining or completely blocked shower then read on to find out the causes, and some simple DIY fixes. If that doesn’t work then we suggest leaving the job to the professionals to investigate the source of the blockage so you can make an informed decision and get it expertly repaired for good. But before we get there it is important to understand the common causes of drain and sewer system blockage.

BLOCKED SHOWER ADELAIDE: If you tend to wash down your shower any solid waste and things that do not belong in the drains, you will sooner than later encounter drain blockage. Even if you are following good plumbing habits and trying to keep your bathroom drains clean, the continuous usage of the shower essentials and build-up of soap scum, oils, skin flakes, and hair can also gradually lead to drain blockages. Did you know that fallen hair is the top reason for drain blockage as they are almost non-degradable and accumulate in pipes over a period leading to obstructions and clogs?

BLOCKED KITCHEN SINK ADELAIDE: The kitchen sink is the most used plumbing in a house and from the sink drain to the dishwasher, all sorts of fats, oil and grease, food waste, and food scraps go down the drain. It is very important to keep your kitchen drain clear and maintained to keep it from developing clogs and blockages. Consider installing food catchers and strainers to minimise food items from entering your drains but that’s not enough to stop oil and grease from passing through before it starts to solidify and create a clog. The best prevention is to never put waste down your drain. 

BLOCKED BATHTUB DRAINS ADELAIDE: Your bathroom sink and bathtub will have slightly different clogs from your kitchen. The clogs will consist of soap and hair and the same drain cleaning methods will apply in your bathroom as in your kitchen. Catch all the excess hair before it washes down the drain, and use boiling water, vinegar, and baking soda as a DIY solution to clean the drains. But when the clog won’t clear out with simple DIY methods you might need something different such as a plunger or wire coat hanger to catch any hair caught near a shower drain, floor drain, or in the sink.

BLOCKED TOILET ADELAIDE: Toilet blockages can be due to excess toilet paper, flushing down of foreign materials and hygiene products or tree root intrusion and pipe damage. The best way to avoid a blocked toilet is by never flushing disposable wipes, diapers, solid objects, or basically anything but toilet paper and human waste. For simpler blockages a toilet plunger can come handy to unblock your drains but you will need a professional toilet plumber for more serious and recurring blockages. Some plumbers use modern and efficient methods to clear blocked drains caused by tree roots and for more stubborn clogs such as CCTV inspections followed by hydro jet drain cleaning. It uses high pressure jets of water to break apart any serious blockage. This method is best performed by a professional and experienced plumber who would be able to protect existing plumbing and drains.
