There are a number of common culprits that cause blockages in drains, including:

  • Accumulation of hair, soap scum, and debris in bathroom and shower drains.
  • Food scraps, grease, and cooking oil buildup in the kitchen sink.
  • Tree roots infiltrating and clogging sewer pipes.
  • Foreign objects, such as sanitary products or toys, getting lodged in the pipes.
  • Sediment and debris accumulation in stormwater and outdoor drains.

Common signs of a blocked drain include:

  1. Slow Draining: Water takes longer than usual to drain from sinks, bathtubs, or showers.
  2. Gurgling Noises: Unusual gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from drains when using water fixtures.
  3. Smelly Drains: Persistent, unpleasant odours emanating from drains or sinks.
  4. Water Backing Up: Water backing up into other drains or fixtures when using one particular fixture.
  5. Overflowing Toilets: Clogged toilets will overflow or drain slowly when flushed.
  6. Water Pools: Puddles of water forming near drains, especially during or after using water fixtures.
  7. Bubbling in Toilet or Sink: Air bubbles rise in the toilet bowl or sink when using other fixtures.

If you notice any of these signs, it may indicate a blocked drain! Contact a professional plumber at Water Smart Plumbing for reliable, effective and affordable drainage services in Sunshine Coast.

Yes, if left untreated blocked drains will only continue to get worse. Not only will this cause the drain to overflow and flood, but can also damage the drain pipes as well. Clearing blocked drains are important to avoid expensive flood damage and drain repair

To ensure your drainage system remains clear and free from blockages, follow these proactive measures:

  • Install drain strainers to catch hair and debris in bathroom drains.
  • Avoid pouring grease or oil down kitchen sinks; instead, dispose of them properly.
  • Trim tree roots regularly and avoid planting trees near sewer lines.
  • Do not dispose of sanitary products and other non-flushable items in the toilet
  • Regularly clean stormwater drains to prevent debris buildup.
