Sewer chokes: What are the causes?


Your sewer lines can choke up in various ways. Here are some of the common reasons explaining why homes in Sydney get choked sewers.


  • Quite often, people use the toilet to flush down objects that aren’t supposed to go there. These range from sanitary products and wet wipes to kids’ toys. These can cause sewer chokes once inside the drainage system.
  • The growth of tree roots inside a sewer line can develop into a large network, clogging up your sewer pipes completely.
  • If errors take place during the installation of the pipes, they may move out of alignment easily, resulting in a blockage. This is why you should get your plumbing system installed only by reputed companies.

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.

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.
