Our blocked drain plumbers have encountered and successfully tackled every Adelaide plumbing problem under the sun. The most common plumbing emergency calls we get are usually for clogged pipes or blocked drains and sewer backups caused by flushing things that do not belong in the toilet.
To avoid a plumbing catastrophe and save yourself the hassle of dealing with a blocked toilet or waste sewage water flooding your house and yard, follow our list of common items that do not belong in the drains – under any circumstances. We are hoping that this blog will help educate our customers on how to avoid serious sewer plumbing problems.
There are several reasons why your sewer may be backing up. The most common reasons include:
Clogged Pipes: Although you may be experiencing smaller problems like the slow sinks, clogged sinks, or fluctuating water in the toilet, on the other hand, your home’s plumbing system could be experiencing a bigger problem such as the start of a sewer line clog. It is important to get a professional plumber to do a timely inspection to identify warning signs and find the right solution before it’s too late.
Tree Roots: Believe it or not, the big, beautiful trees in your yard may be causing your sewer backup! Invasive tree roots that grow in sewers are a major cause of broken sewer lines. Get a professional Adelaide blocked drain plumber to diagnose the extent of damage and repair your pipes and the sewer.
Damaged Pipes: Most homeowners don’t think much about their pipes and plumbing system until they get clogged, burst, damaged, or completely stop working. At that point, your pipes become a hassle. It doesn’t take long before a damaged pipe can escalate to a bigger crisis and flood your home. If you have old pipes, you may be more prone to sewer backups and other problems. Have a blocked drain plumber inspect and repair any minor or major issues to prevent bigger problems with your sewer from causing flooding and devastating damage to your property.
Tips To Prevent Sewer Problems:
Practice toilet hygiene: As a rule, do not flush anything but toilet paper down your toilets! Don’t flush away things other than toilet paper and human water and make sure any diapers, sanitary products, foreign materials, grease, fat, oils, or food scraps are disposed of in the bin and not put down the drains or the toilet bowl.
Dispose of grease properly: Make it a point to dispose of cooking oil or grease responsibly and carefully as it does not belong in the drain. If you pour down grease in the drains then the fats and oils will solidify either in the drain or in the main sewer causing a major clog.
Dispose of foreign material properly: Things like paper towels, makeup wipes, flushable wipes, cotton pads, disposable and cloth diapers and feminine products take a long time to deteriorate and clog the line. They belong in the bin and not your toilet bowl.
Replace damaged piping: If your pipes are damaged, cracked or broken they will cause bigger plumbing problems. Get a professional plumber to inspect your drains and replace any damaged sections.
