Blocked Drain Outside

Do you have blocked drains outside?

When it comes to a blocked drain outside it is very important to act fast to prevent any further damage to your home or garden.

As you can imagine, a drain blockage will not clear up itself and will get worse until your drains are unblocked. If an outside drain goes without immediate correction, your garden and home foundations could be affected. There are also many health risks associated with drain blockages which can cause cracked and overflowing sewerage to enter your garden.

So what is causing your outside blocked drain problems?

Grease and Fat build up are common causes of blocked drains

One of the biggest causes of blocked drains is cooking fat or grease. Many people think that it is okay to pour these liquids down the drain after cooking, however what you may not realise is that they can stick to the surface of the pipes and after time, this can lead to clogging effect.

It is important to remember that whilst fat may seem like a harmless liquid, it is not suitable to be washed down into the drain.

Toilet paper and baby wipes

Now we know the idea of toilet paper causing a blockage made sound strange, especially when it is designed to be flushed, but it large quantities, it can cause an issue.

The paper can stick together and become attached to the sides of the drain, causing an obstruction which requires professional help. 

Baby wipes on the other hand are not designed to be flushed down the toilet, and even those that claim to be flushable will not disperse in the water as toilet paper does.

More serious damage is caused by tree roots

Sometimes, mother nature herself is to blame for drain blockages. Tree roots in particular can work their way into the drain through tiny cracks, causing a blockage. Tree roots are drawn to the water and can cause the pipe to crack quite easily.
