What Causes A Blocked Drain?

A blocked drain occurs when solid material prevents water from flowing through a pipeline.

At Heritage Plumbing, we specialise in an extensive range of blocked drain services. No matter what is causing the blockage, we can get your drain functioning properly again.

Blocked Toilets & Urinals

While blocked toilets are usually caused by a build-up of toilet paper, sanitary napkins or baby wipes, blocked urinals can be due to scale clogging the traps or pipes.

Common Signs of a Blocked Stormwater Drain

The fact is that your stormwater systems are designed to handle the increased water that comes in heavy rainfall. If they are blocked however, you may see the following indicators:

  • Pools of water gathering around your home or office
  • Surface grates flooding in heavy rain
  • The bottom of your downpipes are releasing water
  • Gurgling (or other unusual) sound coming from your drains

Why Do Stormwater Drains Get Blocked?

There are a few different reasons behind stormwater drains getting blocked or damaged, including:

  • Tree roots: Tree roots are responsible for around 95% of blocked or damaged stormwater pipes. This is because they are attracted toward the water and nutrients that flow through your pipes. Sometimes, a tiny root infiltrates pipework and winds up growing into a huge mass that combines with leaves and debris, blocking the drainage system.
  • Random debris: Often, foreign objects such as branches, leaves, stones and dead animals may become lodged in your stormwater drain and wind up causing a blockage.
  • Age and damage: Sometimes due to age or damage, pipes can break and collapse. This can result in a big blockage in the stormwater system.
  • Lack of information or neglect: Sometimes due to lack of information or simple neglect, stormwater drains can go unmaintained. It is important to ensure you are regularly keeping your gutters free of leaves and other debris in order to avoid a blockage.
  • Installation faults: If your pipes have not been correctly installed, it can be much easier for tree roots to penetrate the joints between pipes. To ensure correct installation, check that it is being carried out by a fully qualified plumber.

In many cases, a blocked drainpipe may be an emergency. If it becomes contaminated and spills out into our waterways, it can pose a threat to other people, sea creatures, and the environment.

How Long Does It Take To Unblock A Drain in Melbourne?

The amount of time it takes to unblock a drain in Melbourne depends on where the drain is located and what is causing the blockage. The extent of the blockage determines how much cleaning is required to get your drain functioning properly again.

Why is my drain gurgling and not draining properly / drain slowly?

This is likely the result of an obstruction, or tree roots in the drain / pipes. We recommend our plumber attend with special equipment such as our CCTV camera to locate the blockage, and our drain jetter / drain cleaning machine to clear the blockage.

Why does my drain smell?

This could be from a number of causes such as:
– Build-up of fat, oils, hair, food scraps etc which can sometimes clog drains and stop them from flowing freely.
– If you haven’t used the sink or shower in a while, the water in the trap beneath the sink can dry up and allow smells to come up through the sink.
You can try running hot water and see if this helps, but if this doesn’t help we can attend and investigate to resolve.
