Blocked Drains

Waste water that stops from draining away is mostly caused by clogged up or blocked drains, which can happen in the pipes.

Clues to see if you have a blocked drain

  • Baths, sinks, showers, or toilets drain slowly or unable to drain at all
  • You can hear bubbling noise when water flows down the drain
  • You can smell unpleasant sewage smell
  • Waste water coming back up into baths/showers

Causes of blocked drains

  • Hair
  • Heavy rain and storms
  • Poor water flow
  • Heavy materials contaminating the drain
  • Build up items in pipes
  • Often caused by sanitary products, like paper towels, tissues or other materials, that are hard to flush
  • Food particles, oil, or grease
  • Plants, dirt and tree roots
  • Leaves or other debris, particularly in fall

DIY drain fix and clearing methods

If there’s a blockage occurs on your property, you can tackle the problems yourself, to save additional cost from plumber visits and help. You need to know the essentials of unblocking a drain which is not as hard as expected, using some ingredients or tools you can easily find near you. There are some things you can use, such as:

  1. Baking soda and vinegar. A combination between the two ingredients is the most eco-friendly way to deal with a blocked drain, but powerful.
  2. Using unblocking chemicals. A simple and effective way to fix a blocked drain is to use unblocking chemicals, but far less environment friendly.
