Why are my Pipes Blocked?

Blocked pipes are one of the most common plumbing issues that we deal with on a daily basis. It can be caused by a number of things, whether your pipes are outside or underground. Some of the causes are:-
  • Dirt and debris- usually seen as a cause for blocking stormwater or sewer drain pipes. Leaves, stones, garden waste, etc. can easily fall into the drains causing blocked pipes.
  • Faulty installation- this involves more of common sense. If the pipe is not installed correctly, then the flow of water can be hindered or it can be more prone to blockages and eventually break.
  • Grease and food waste- kitchen pipes usually get clogged because of a grease built-up. Additionally, even though all kitchen sinks are designed to prevent food waste from entering your pipes, that little chunk of vegetable always manages to get through.
