Blocked drain: Tree Roots
Blocked drain: Cooking Grease
It’s so much easier to send cooking grease down the sink, rather than disposing of it in the bin – messy, wet, hot. Ugh. However when grease cools, it congeals and sticks, turning into a hard blockage that can partially or fully block the pipe. Try pouring it into another container destined for the tip instead, or feed it to your compost – it can take a little at a time.
Blocked drain: Hair
Most times it’s a relatively easy task to simply ‘remove the hair’, albeit a little gross. But as parents of long-haired girls would know, a build up further along the pipe can cause serious issues. A quick swipe of your drain after every shower will help mitigate this issue.
Blocked drain: Foreign Objects
The out-of-sight, out-of-mind theory often applies to plumbing. A lot of leftovers? Chuck it down the toilet. No rubbish bin in the bathroom? Just flush that sanitary item away. Curious toddler wants to see what happens when he presses the button? Bye bye small toy. All of these can cause serious blockages. Be vigilant.
