Blocked drains are very common and can cause major problems if left untreated.
One of the biggest causes of blocked drains is tree roots. When trees grow and go in search of water they head around the sewer and storm water pipes due to water running in trenches. If the roots find a crack or fault in a drain they will enter it as there is always moisture and nutrients in the drains. Once the roots find a way in they will continue to grow and expand until the drain is fully blocked. Once this happens it can only be properly fixed by a licensed Plumber. Should you have drainage issues call Dickson Plumbing Services.
During the summer months this can be made worse due to a shortage of available water.
These blockages rarely if ever fix themselves and will only get worse if left.
You have a few options to repair:
- Unblock and cut out roots using a drainage machine or water jet. This is the cheapest option and will usually last for about 18 months to 2 years. This is an immediate solution to the problem.
- Re-line the pipe in the affected area. This is a trenchless repair.
- Locate the problem area using a camera, excavate above fault and cut out and replace offending section of pipe.
Noise can be a good indication that your drains are becoming blocked. The drains will gurgle and bubble and bump.
It’s good to get on top of this problem straight away before the drains become fully blocked and start to overflow.
