Blocked drains and fixtures are a common occurrence in many homes, whether new or old. They can be caused by debris and leaves after high rain levels, items such as hair and toys becoming wedged down in the drain or tree roots damaging the drain. A drain pressure cleaner is an effective way to help resolve your blocked drains, ensuring they do not cause overflow or damage to your home.
Common Causes of Blocked Drains
- Expansion and contraction due to wet and dry weather
- Leaking rubber seals from terracotta pipe work
- Joints not glued correctly
- Movement in the ground
- Movement of house foundations
- Tree growth (large contributor for dislocation)
