Common Reasons Why Drains Overflow

Drainage systems are designed and built to work seamlessly for several years. They transport waste from your property into the public sewage system. A drain that is functioning well will never overflow. So if you notice any sewage backup in your house, it indicates there is a problem in the drainage system. The backed-up sewage water will also have a foul odor and create an unhygienic environment in your home.

We at SPS Plumbers Sutherland Shire Suffer offer efficient drain blockage services to clients across the region. If you are dealing with a sewer backup on your property, call us without delay. Our experienced plumbers will be deployed to your property and will handle the job professionally. While we provide high-quality plumbing solutions, you will find that our pricing is very competitive.

Reasons Why Drains Overflow

While drain blockages are a pervasive problem on commercial and residential properties, most people don’t realise that these problems build up over time. They are rarely sudden and extensive neglect cause a build-up of debris, food particles etc inside the drainage system.

Most people try to use plungers if they find that the water from their sink or shower areas is draining very slowly. However, this indicates there is a blockage in the system. If the problem isn’t dealt with immediately, it can escalate within a short span and create a much more stubborn block. There are different reasons why drains overflow, such as:

  • At times, root growth inside underground pipes in the landscaping result in blockages as well. If the pipe has suffered any damage or has developed cracks, roots from surrounding trees can infiltrate the pipeline and begin to grow inside it. The sewage water provides the plants the nutrition they need, and the roots start to grow at a phenomenal pace. Before long, they create a net-like structure within the pipe and cause a block.
  • The food particles, leftovers, grease, soap, and other small items become trapped in these tree roots causing an even more severe blockage. If the problem isn’t addressed within the shortest possible time, it can result in a significant drain block.
  • Sometimes, excessive rainfall can also result in overflowing drains, and an experienced plumber can handle this job as well.
  • Sometimes, old pipes deteriorate over time, which results in a collapse in the drains. This is a major problem which can cause a very stubborn blockage.

Cost-Efficient Drain Overflow Repairs

The plumbing company will use CCTV drain cameras to determine what is causing the block and will provide the right solution. If there is any damage to the pipes, they will fix that as well. Today, non-intrusive pipe relining methods are used to fix problems in underground pipes.
