What causes my drains to become blocked?

  • Drains may block due to deteriorated physical condition
  • They may be in satisfactory condition but have been abused by flushing away foreign items that should never be placed into the sewerage system (i.e. plastic bags, kids toys, disposable nappies)
  • Excessive disposal of cooking fats and oils, along with other domestic products and DIY materials such as plaster, can cause blockage of the pipe work
  • Tree roots entering a broken drain can also be a problem
