Causes Of Blocked Sewer Drain

Blocked sewer drains can cause significant inconvenience and even lead to more serious plumbing issues if not addressed promptly.
Here are some primary culprits.

Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG):

Often washed down kitchen sinks, these substances solidify within the sewer lines, gradually accumulating until they cause a blockage.

Foreign Objects

A common issue in bathroom drains, hair binds with soap scum and other debris, creating dense clogs that water cannot penetrate. Foreign Objects Items that shouldn't be flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain, such as sanitary products, wipes, and children's toys, can easily cause blockages in sewer drains.

Foreign Objects

Items that shouldn't be flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain, such as sanitary products, wipes, and children's toys, can easily cause blockages in sewer drains.

Soap Scum

The fatty acids in traditional soap mix with minerals in water, leaving a hard residue known as soap scum that can stick to pipes and cause blockages. Switching to soap-free washes or liquid soap can reduce buildup.

Tree Roots

Outdoor drains are particularly susceptible to intrusion by tree roots. Even small cracks or leaks in the pipes can attract roots seeking moisture, eventually leading to severe blockages and potentially costly damage.

Signs Of A Blocked Sewer Drain

Recognising the early signs of a blocked sewer drain can save you from a plumbing disaster. Here are the key indicators:

Slow Draining

Water pooling around your feet in the shower or a sink that drains more slowly than usual often indicates a blockage.

Gurgling Sounds

Unusual noises emanating from the drains, toilets, or pipes are a clear sign that air is trapped somewhere in your sewer line due to a blockage.

Foul Odors

A persistent, unpleasant smell emanating from drains or toilets suggests that waste is accumulating somewhere in the system due to a clog.

Water Backup

Water rising back up in the sink, shower, or toilet after you've tried to drain it is a surefire indicator of a blockage.

Causes Of Blocked Stormwater Drains

Stormwater drains can become blocked due to a variety of reasons, significantly impacting drainage during rainfall. Common causes include:

Leaves and Debris

 Accumulation of leaves, branches, and other garden debris, especially during the fall, can clog stormwater drains.

Silt and Dirt

Over time, silt and dirt can accumulate in stormwater drains, especially if there are nearby construction sites or eroded landscapes.


Discarded trash and litter can find their way into stormwater systems, leading to blockages.

Signs Of Blocked Stormwater Drains

Identifying a blocked stormwater drain is crucial to preventing flooding and water damage. Look out for:

Overflowing Gutters

This could indicate that the stormwater drain is unable to cope with the volume of water, possibly due to a blockage.
Puddles Near Drain Grates
Persistent puddles around drain grates, despite dry weather, can suggest a clog in the stormwater system.
Water Discharging Slowly
If you notice that water is draining more slowly than usual following rainfall, this could be a sign of a blockage in the stormwater drain.

Seb was easy to deal with, turned up quickly, used a camera to find the broken stormwater pipe under the driveway, and later sent out a report so we could send that off to our builder, to resolve the issue. Recommend Seb highly for any of your plumbing needs.
