Blocked Drains FAQs
Is a blocked drain classified as an emergency?
A blocked drain can be considered an emergency if it poses a risk to health and safety or causes significant property damage. Some scenarios include sewage backup, flooding, or persistent foul odours. In these situations, it is crucial to address the problem as soon as possible by contacting a professional plumber who can provide prompt and efficient service.
What is the most common cause of blocked drains?
The most common causes of blocked drains include the build-up of foreign materials such as grease, hair, food particles, and wet wipes. Tree roots can also infiltrate and damage drainage systems, leading to blockages. Other contributing factors include structural issues, pipe corrosion, or the incorrect installation of plumbing fixtures.
Who is responsible for clearing blocked drains?
Responsibility for clearing blocked drains depends on the location of the blockage. If it is within your property’s boundary, the responsibility typically falls on the homeowner. However, if the blockage is located in the main sewer or outside your property’s boundary, the local water authority or council may be responsible for clearing it. In case of any uncertainties, consult a licensed plumber to determine the appropriate course of action.
What is the best treatment for a blocked drain?
The best treatment for a blocked drain depends on the cause and severity of the blockage. A professional plumber may use a combination of methods, such as plungers, drain rods, high-pressure water jetting, or even CCTV drain inspection to locate and remove the blockage effectively. It is essential to rely on a licensed plumber to assess the situation and provide a suitable solution.
What are the signs of a blocked drain?
Common signs of a blocked drain include slow draining water, gurgling noises from the pipes, foul odours, visible water pooling, or sewage backup. These symptoms indicate a potential blockage in your plumbing system, and it is essential to address the issue promptly by seeking professional assistance to avoid further complications.
