Blocked drains happen for a number of reasons with tree roots being the number one cause. If there is the slightest crack in your pipework a tree root will make its way in and soon grow to a large mass mixing with other leaves and debris being flushed into your pipes. Cooking fats and oils, hair, food scraps and too much toilet paper are also common causes for blocked drains.  Being mindful what you are putting into your sinks, flushing down your toilets and where you are planting your trees can all help in the prevention of blocked drains.

Incorrect pipe installation is an increasing reason for blocked drains due to many DIY pipe repairs or installations. A DIY plumbing job may save you money up front but if done incorrectly will cost you far greater than you bargained for – especially as this is illegal if an unqualified contractor has installed your pipework or plumbing or gas appliances, this may also void any warranty and insurance claims. Don’t risk it; always employ a fully qualified plumber or gas fitter.
