Toilets do end up clogged once in a while and it is nothing to be worried about. In most cases, a plunger would do the job. However, if you are finding your toilet blocked too often, or fail to unblock it with a plunger, it is time to seek a professional assistance. Considering that we are one of the most reputable plumbing companies in Melbourne, you may rest assured that we can get your blocked toilets running normally in little time.
What Normally Gets Blocked?
What are the causes of blocked toilets and how can we unblock them?
Blocked toilets are typically a result of flushing down non-flushable items. In other cases, a blockage in the sewer pipes may cause your toilet to clog up too. Some of the common causes behind blocked toilets are:
Unless the blockage shows any obvious signs, our professional plumbers would use the necessary equipment to determine the cause. This helps them take the right approach in fixing blocked toilets effectively.
Gardening can be wonderful and fun but it is important to know where your sewer and stormwater drains are laid before planting certain flora. Cracks and spaces in your pipes are especially vulnerable to strong, deep roots and can cause significant damage to your pipe’s health and your wallet! Out of all the blocked drain issues throughout our 20+ years of plumbing experience, tree roots is the number one most common problem.
The most common cause of kitchen sink blockages is oil and waste scraps clogging the drains. Simply DO NOT pour oils down the kitchen sink, but instead pour it into containers to prevent the fats blocking your drain.
Regardless of wipes and female hygiene products being a kind of tissue, you SHOULD NOT flush them down the drain. We advise our customers to dispose of these into a rubbish bin and to remember that all wipes can cause blockages and issues with your drain.
Another common blockage problem is quantities of hair blocking drains. This can easily be prevented by using a hair catcher over your drain or simply remove the hairs from the drain after your shower
Leaves & Debris
Leaves and debris often block stormwater drains. Make sure they’re kept clear. What we recommend to our customers is to place a Protective Gutter Guard or a simple mesh covering over the drain to keep them clean and clear.
