Common Causes of Blocked Drains in

north Brisbane


When we receive a call about a blocked drain on Brisbane’s northside, we often find the cause to be tree root growth. Brisbane is filled with amazing bushland, but this leads to a lot of stray vegetative growth around the place. Tree roots grow far deeper than many residents expect, and when they start to grow near or into pipes, major problems can happen. Even tree roots as fine as hairs can grow into a drain and cause a blockage. A larger tree root system can put pressure on a pipe and crush it. In this case, your drain will be so damage that it may need to be replaced.

Surprisingly, heavy traffic can also cause a blocked drain. Heavy vehicles can cause compression in the earth. With time, this pressure will become so great that drains underground can get crushed. This will cause drains in your house to get backed up.

Foreign objects can also be the cause of stubborn blocked drains. Sanitary items, paper towels and nappies are all common causes of blocked drains. You should be cautious when using items that are marketed as being “flushable” – in many cases, they are not. The only thing you should flush down your toilet is waste and toilet paper. If you have a family with small children, you should make sure they don’t flush plastic toys down the toilet too. You’d be surprised how many stubborn blockages are caused by children’s toys.

When it comes to bathroom and kitchen sinks, you should be cautious what you put down the drain as well. Hair, food, oil and soap can all cause pesky blockages. It’s a good idea to install a drain trap to avoid this.

How do our North Brisbane Plumbers Clear Out Blocked Drains?


When you begin to notice clear signs of a drain blockage on the northside, you should always call up a plumber. Laing’s Plumbing Co. in Brisbane have all the necessary tools and experience to deal with blocked drain issues. To begin clearing a blocked drain, we usually use a CCTV drain camera to survey your pipes to identify what is causing your blockage and where it is located. In situations where the drain is crushed, repair work might be necessary.

In order to deal with a blocked drain, specific tools are used. The first of these is called an electric eel. These work like a drill which digs into the blockage and rips it to shreds or pulls it out of the drains. We also employ the use of high pressure water jetters. This functions like an extremely powerful hose which clears blockages out of your pipes. With a strong enough hydro jetter, we can even clear out tree roots.

Fantastic service very friendly and prompt thank you!
