Blocked Drains

Posted by: Will's Plumbing

Blocked pipes can stop wastewater draining away, which can be messy and smelly, so you'll need to get it sorted fast. Almost each homeowner will have experienced some form of blockage within their house. With years of experience within the Plumbing industry, the Wills Plumbing team are fully capable of spotting the most common and probable causes of such blockages.


If blocked drains in the toilet or bathroom are a problem, it’s usually due to the items you flush down your toilet. If on the other hand, if it’s a kitchen drain that is blocked, it could be because of food particles, grease and other debris which is washed into the pipes from your kitchen sink or washer.


Here are some place where you can find blockage problem. Drains can block which can affect all types of fixtures within your house like Your toilet, Basin, Kitchen sink, Laundr,, Bath, Shower. Outside drains, etc…


Bellow are some common causes for blockage problem.

The blockages may be caused by tree roots, hair, sludge, scum and grime, grease, damages drain, distorted drain, drain damages by construction process, building material, toys, many many more…


Trees and leaves

Now that the Autumn is setting in, many homeowners will be busy in the garden, carrying out essential garden maintenance to keep their gardens looking neat and tidy as the leaves begin to brown and fall from their trees. Besides the obvious housekeeping reasons, keeping your garden free from stray leaves and debris can also help to keep the issue of blocked drains at bay. Leaves are not the only culprit, as tree roots which are drawn to the nearest source of water can also crack into the pipes over time, causing a blockage. 


Grease and fat 

This is one of the most common causes of all, yet it is also one of the easiest to prevent. Any fatty substances which are washed down the sinks will stick to the inside of the pipes, eventually building up so much that no more liquid can pass through. This can be easily avoided by keeping a watchful eye over the liquids which you do decide to wash away. 



A build up of hair can also pose a large problem for homeowners. Over time this can worsen if the blockage is not quickly cleared, preventing liquid from passing through it altogether. Although this can be helped by using devices which catch the hair before it enters the pipes, you should still pay close attention to this simple, yet avoidable issue. 



Foreign objects

Choked or blocked drainage can occur when foreign objects or materials such as soaps, fats or food build up become caught between the drainpipe and the pipes that flow underneath. Initially the material may not fully block the drain, but over time materials will continue to collect which will prevent water from flowing freely and could eventually cause the drain to block. Toilets regularly block up due to too much toilet paper, sanitary items and even nappies being flushed down them. Young children are often the culprits for blocked toilets. They have been known to flush a full roll of toilet paper, a toy and even the toilet brush. 

We understand that unless you’re a plumber, it’s hard to know where the blockage is and who owns which bit of the pipework.
