Tree roots in pipes in Melbourne

It’s wonderful to have plenty of shady trees around your home. The soothing greenery continues to please your eyes, until one day you come across uneven toilet water and slow-draining sewers. Although you adore trees, their roots continue to pose a persistent threat to stormwater drains and sewers. While many homes in Melbourne have older terracotta drains, you may even have a PVC drain pipe congested with tree roots.
A loose joint or a minor crack in the pipe offers an entryway for roots to infiltrate into the drains. Once they do, they receive plenty of water, moisture and nutrients to quickly expand into extensive networks. In the process, you would experience clogged drains and sewers.
Well, if you find yourself messed up in such circumstances, give us a call for removing tree roots in pipes in Melbourne. At PlumbFirst Melbourne, we blend technology and industry knowledge tactically to resolve such issues.

Tree Roots

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.

Flushing Oils

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.

Hygiene Objects

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.
