So what are the signs that a drainage system is backing up?

  • Slow discharging toilets and sinks
  • The water seal at the bottom of your toilet being lower or higher than normal
  • Gurgling sounds from sinks and toilets
  • And the dreaded surcharge or overflow

This overflow, if the drain is designed correctly, should happen at the overflow gully, which is the drain you may have seen around your house with the grate on top.

Make sure you keep the top of this gully clear so that it can do its job properly, otherwise the overflow will happen at the next lowest point which is your floor waste inside.

So what causes blocked drains?

The most common cause is tree roots entering the drain through joints, cracks in the joints or breaks in the pipe wall.

Other causes include insufficient gradient or fall of the pipe, misaligned pipes or completely collapsed pipes due to incorrect installation or from external forces such as pressure from large tree roots or ground movement.

Then there’s the foreign objects. Kids toys, balls and women’s sanitary products. There are only two things that should go down the toilet, human waste and toilet paper.

So whatever the cause, you can rest assured that the technicians at Jedi Plumbing will correctly diagnose the problem and repair it with the highest quality workmanship.
