You may have guests arriving perhaps. WeClearDrains.com.au are Gold Coast Blocked Drain Experts.

We can usually fix your blocked drain without having to dig up your property with our latest technology water jetter and CCTV inspection equipment.

Blockages in your drains and pipes are generally caused by a variety of reasons - someone flushed the wrong object, faulty pipe work or root intrusion and damage. Our team handles all types of blocked drains in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

There are many reasons a pipe can be blocked. Issues like too much toilet paper, or a child's favourite toy being flushed down the toilet.
Other causes could be the pipe not being installed in the ground correctly with enough slope for the sewer to flow Properly. Tree roots growing in the drain pipe.

Tree roots can enter a sewer pipe through a break in the pipe or through a joint that has not been properly sealed. The moist internal environment of a sewer pipe is perfect for tree roots to flourish once inside the pipe. The constant source of water and nutrients available allow them to grow.
Toilet paper snags on the roots easily as it attempts to travel down the drain. They eventually grow enough to partially or fully block the pipe.

Fat Blockage

People often wash the left over fat from their frying pan down the kitchen sink instead of wiping it out with a paper towel and putting it in the bin. When the fat goes down the sink on a regular basis it becomes solidified where it reaches the water in the 'S' bend under the sink. The fat will stick together and become a big ball of fat, eventually blocking your house pipes.

Paper Blockage

When excess toilet paper is used and fills up the toilet bowl it can easily get stuck as there is not enough water in the flush to push it down the toilet pipe.
With the proliferation of older units on the Gold Coast sewer blockages are quite common.

Foreign Object Blockage

Products like 'flushable wipes' advertise that they can be flushed down the toilet. Unfortunately they do not break down once wet like toilet paper does and will often build up in the pipe and cause a blockage. This is a very common cause of blocked drains and people don’t realise that items like wet wipes can cause so many problems. Flushing hygiene products down the toilet create similar problems because they do not break down once wet and can snag and get caught on the joints inside a sewer drain.

Broken, Cracked or Collapsed Pipes

Pipes under the ground can become broken or cracked as a result of shifting soil, heavy vehicles or machinery driving over the area above the pipes, incorrect building or landscaping or simply just corrosion over time.  
Once the pipe is damaged or cracked, toilet paper can catch on the broken pipe, build up and create a blockage.
Tree roots can also enter the pipe at the damaged area and grow into a mass of roots, restricting or blocking flow.
