5 mistakes that you shouldn’t do if you don’t want to hire a plumber for blocked drains in Sydney

Plumber Sydney

Drains and sewers carry a large amount of waste on a daily basis and are essential aspects of your plumbing system. However, they’re also one of the most ignored parts of a property. Most people don’t pay much attention to their drains unless they start malfunctioning in some way. Drainage systems are designed to be resilient and handle considerable amount of load. But eventually, debris and dirt can pile up and cause a blockage. If your drainage system starts to show signs of clogs, you should give us at SPS Plumbers a call. Our expert blockage clearing services will take care of the problem in no time.....

Why Do Drains Clog?

Drains can develop blockages for a variety of reasons. Some of these causes can be prevented through proper use and maintenance but others are inevitable. Here’s a list of the most common causes of drain blockage:

  • Tree roots
  • Soap, detergent, shampoo, and other such substances
  • Kitchen waste like food matter, fats, solids, and oils
  • Plastics and papers that are flushed down the toilet
  • Large amounts of toilet papers flushed together
  • Compromised drainage pipe
  • Cave ins and collapse in sections of sewer lines

What are the Signs of Drain Clogs?

There are many signs that indicate that there’s a clog in the system. Drainage clogs will only get worse with time so it’s vital to address them as quickly as you can. Here are some signs you should keep an eye on:

Blocked drains are common household problems. They are highly unhygienic. They stink badly and release a foul odour. Moreover, blocked drains cannot drain water and have to be repaired immediately. Many people prefer clearing the blockages themselves; however this may not always be a good idea. If you push down the object that is blocking the drain instead of removing it, you may create a bigger mess. The safer alternative is to call up a plumber who is expert in handling blocked drains in Sydney.

Unclogging the drains is not a big job, at least not for blocked drains in Sydney experts like us. We however, would like to educate our customers about a few mistakes that they repeatedly do that in turn leads to blockages.

Never dump food in the sink or try to flush it

Rice is one of the most notorious foods that causes blocked drains. We at SPS Plumbing, one of the leading blocked drains professionals, therefore, highly recommend you to clear all the waste from the plate before washing them in the sink or in the dishwasher. A piece of bread may get flushed very easily but hard things such as apples, bones, etc. can create a severe blockage that only blocked drains experts like us would be able to unclog.

Never pour grease or food fat in the drain

It will easily pass through the sink when it is hot but once it gets cooled inside the sewer, it will turn into lumps. These lumps of grease will stick to the drainage pipe and will block it. This is one of the hardest to clean issues that blocked drains professionals have to deal with. Instead of pouring the grease down the drain, let it cool and later throw it in the garbage bin.

Never flush baby wipes and paper towels

They seem to get flushed very easily but when they are in the sewage, they turn into lumps and start clogging the toilet. Also, never flush nappies. Most people don’t flush diapers but some people do, especially at public places such as in restaurants. Diapers expand very quickly and they are hard to remove as well.

Never plant trees near your drainage system

Now this is tricky. Most people don’t realize that when the trees will grow, their roots will also grow and will eventually reach the drainage pipes and damage them. The roots are so powerful that they can break or bend the pipe.

Never try flush small toys and candy wrappers

We know you don’t do this but you never know your kids might be flushing candy wrappers, caps of their bottles, erasers, and almost anything that they can come across. Teach your child not to flush anything without your permission. Educate him about what will happen if he flushes these things. The object might get flushed but it will get stuck somewhere in the pipeline and will cause a severe blockage that only blocked drains experts like us would be able to handle.

By avoiding these common mistakes, you will be able to minimize the requirement of a blocked drains agency. Think before you reach the toilet or sink to dump something. If you need our plumbing services, call us at (02) 9072 0760

  • Standing water in the sink or bathtub
  • Flooding from floor drains in the bathroom, utility room, basement, etc
  • Clogged toilets
  • Backed-up water
  • Rotten egg-like odour from the drains
  • Gurgling down even when the drains aren’t in use

How can We Help?

We’ve been the go-to plumber for many people here in Sydney for the past 15 years. Our plumbers have considerable amount of skill and experience in this industry and are committed to customer satisfaction. They’ll make sure that your drainage systems work efficiently before they consider their job done. When they reach your location, they will:

  • Inspect the entire drainage system to identify the location of the clog. They will first check the drain pipes inside your home or building before they check the main sewer.
  • If the clog is in the internal system, they’ll use a small drainage auger to clear the drains of the clog.
  • If the blockage is in the sewer, they’ll use a sewer auger to address the problem. This tool is quite powerful and can easily clear tree roots as well.
  • However, if the auger doesn’t resolve the problem, our plumber will examine the system with the help of the CCTV camera to determine the exact location of the clog. They can dig a trench or use hydrojet to address the problem.
