Common causes of blocked drains

If the water in your sinks, toilets, shower, or bath isn’t draining properly, it probably means there is a blockage somewhere in your drains. This blockage isn’t likely to go away by itself, which is why it’s important to call out professional plumbers immediately before further damage occurs.

Blocked drains are usually caused by a build-up of materials and substances that do not dissolve in water and should not be flushed down the toilet or washed down the sink. In some cases, this is unavoidable, but in others, it’s possible to use rubbish bins to dispose of these substances instead.

Common causes of blocked drains in households across Australia include a build-up of hair, toilet paper, baby wipes, food, dirt, and organic residues like leaves and plants.

It’s not always possible to prevent this slow build-up, for example when hair builds up beneath a shower drain, but by binning baby wipes, organic materials, and sludgy foods instead of using sinks and toilets to dispose of them, you can reduce the chances of having a drain blockage in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs that I have a drain blockage?

Signs that your drains are blocked include water not draining properly, foul smells coming from drains and plugholes, and sometimes gurgling noises coming from the drain.

Can I fix a drain blockage myself?

You can try using common drain unblockers to clear small blockages, but often these do not clear blockages entirely, and you will need to call out a professional plumber to ensure your drains are completely cleared.

How do you clear out blocked drains?

We choose the most appropriate method depending on the blockage. Sometimes this may mean using a high-pressure water jet, which uses water flowing at very high pressure to completely clear blockages from inside drains.
