Clogged drains can be a plumbing nightmare!

They can be time consuming to fix and a general headache to deal with especially as clogged drains are mostly completely avoidable.

Whilst you may not be able to completely avoid every drain clog, there are things you can do to minimise the chance of it happening.

Tips to keep your drains clog free:

  • Don’t pour fat or grease down your drain. After cooking it is tempting to pour the leftover oil down the drain but this oil settles, turns solid and quickly clogs. Instead wait until grease has cooled and solidified and then scrape into the bin to dispose with household waste.
  • Scrape leftover bits of food into the bin and not down the sink. It is tempting to think that if scraps of food fit down the plug hole then they wont cause any drain blocking issues but often this food gets stuck to other items in the drain such as grease and before you know it your drain is blocked.
  • Put hair in the bin not down the drain. Some hair is inevitably going to go down the drain but when you can, avoid put clumps of hair in the bin instead as hair combined with soap and shampoo quickly create clogs.
  • Don’t use your toilet as a bin. The only thing that should be flushed down the toilet is human waste and toilet paper. However often items such as hair, floss, sanitary items and baby wipes also end up down the toilet and they are more likely to clog your drains than reach the main sewer.

If you suspect your drain is clogged, it needs immediate attention. If not addressed immediately then it could quickly escalate to flooding a room or a burst pipe!

If you’ve tried unblocking your drain but are still suspect it may be clogged, Maroochydore Plumbing can assist and get your drains flowing freely again in no time!

Out of the plumbers I have had dealings with, Maroochydore Plumbing is definitely my favourite - reliable, honest and very efficient... Would highly recommend.
