Grease Blockages in Sydney
A multitude of factors can render your sewer system impaired, blocking the drainable mechanism altogether. While a build-up of debris, tree roots and other elements continue to be a threat, you cannot rule out internal blocking due to grease accumulation. Grease blockages in Sydney are common, given that most households do not install grease traps. While we recommend our clients to have these, we also treat grease blockages with our advanced equipment.
Now, you might wonder why such blockages take place in your drain pipes. The reason is, you must be flushing out soap, grease and fat regularly through your drain pipes. As these elements cool down, they harden and stick to the inner linings of drain pipes. This, eventually, builds up over time, resulting in a blockage. If you are seeking a reliable plumbing service provider in Sydney to address such issues, we would be glad to help.
What Normally Gets Blocked?
The best solution for grease blockages
In the first place, you can prevent grease from blocking your outlets by preventing them from accumulating. You may reach out to us to have a grease trap installed to protect your sewer system. In case you don’t have this installed, our experts clear the blockage using the best apparatus.
This is how grease traps can come to your rescue:
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.
