Blocked Toilet Drains
Blocked toilet drains are a headache no homeowner wants to deal with on a regular basis. Yet, bothersome toilet clogs are all too common. Most of us try to deal with these inconveniences with a simple plunge. However, a clogged toilet can be a symptom of a wider problem that may exist in the sewer system itself. In this case, a simple plunge will not do. If you experience frequent toilet backups or clogged toilets, all is not well with your sewer system or internal plumbing.
What can cause these sewer drain issues? Generally, it all comes down to foreign objects in the toilet. If anyone in your home ever uses the toilet as a trash can, major problems can quickly arise. Objects such as baby wipes, personal care wipes, and feminine products should never be flushed down the toilet. In fact, toilets are only designed to handle human waste and toilet paper.
Still, if you find yourself living with a blocked toilet drain, don’t hesitate to call a local plumber Perth right away such as Rowson’s Plumbing Services. We can diagnose and repair the problem with ease.
Main Drain Blockage
The main drain blockage can be a major disruption to your home’s entire plumbing system. Generally, these blockages occur due to issues with the two main exit arteries in the home: the stormwater drain and the sewer drain.
Each typically works to carry water and waste away from your home. Unfortunately, each can become clogged if your system is not maintained properly. When water and waste cannot drain, they simply live in the system and eventually back up into your home.
That’s not what anyone wants. What can cause a main drain blockage in your Perth home? Generally, these blockages are caused by the following things:
- Pipe damage due to corrosion, soil erosion, or an uptick in-ground traffic above
- A sagging or old sewer line
- Tree root infiltration (common in older homes)
- Flushing debris down the toilet
- Dumping grease or fats down the drain
- Blocked sewer lines
