A blocked drain can pose all sorts of issues, and not just for your household plumbing. Short of costing money if the blockage causes damage to pipes, a blocked drain can also exacerbate existing health problems for your family members and problems if you are operating on a septic tank.
No matter whether it is your kitchen sink, toilet or outside drain blockage, Mainline Plumbing and Cheap Hot Water and Gas can professionally remove the blockage and get your plumbing running smoothly again.
A blocked drain is more than just a nuisance
Blocked drains can cause issues such as:
- Aggravating Health Issues
- Damaging house foundations and plumbing pipes
- Blocking Your Septic Tank and Leech Drains
Aggravating Health Issues
When a pipe is blocked, dirty water pools and bacteria forms in your pipes. Skin conditions and asthma can be irritated when exposed to wastewater in blocked drains, not to mention the pungent odour of rotting food particles and mould.
Damaging House Foundations and Plumbing Pipes
Flooding is a very common occurrence when pipes are blocked, with pipes being cracked and damaged under the built-up pressure and water leaking out into your walls. When pipes in the foundations of your home are leaking, the integrity of the building material is compromised and costly damage can occur very quickly.
Blocking Your Septic Tank and Leech Drains
The accumulation of grease, oils, hair, foreign objects and debris can lead to blockages in your leech drains, sealing the holes in the walls of the drains that are designed to let the water out into the surrounding soil. This results in your septic tank becoming full and the possibility of overflow, not something anyone finds pleasant.
