What Normally Gets Blocked?
What can lead to cracked sewer pipes?
Your sewer pipes may crack due to a number of reasons, which may or may not involve poor maintenance. Here are some of the common factors accounting for cracked sewer pipes:
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.
How do you know if you have a cracked sewer pipe?
Sewer pipes lie underground or inside the walls. Hence, a crack would be invisible to you. However, a foul smell of sewer water or dampness in the walls is a good indicator. A crack would also cause the surface over it to grow humid, due to which moss or grasses may grow in the region.
