Common causes for Clogged Drains:

Typical causes for drain clogs:


  1. Accumulation of Debris: One of the primary reasons drains clog is the accumulation of debris such as food particles, grease, soap scum, hair, and dirt. Over time, these substances can build up inside the drain pipes, forming obstructions that impede the flow of water.

  2. Tree Root Intrusions: In outdoor drainage systems, tree roots can infiltrate underground pipes in search of moisture and nutrients. As roots grow and expand, they can exert pressure on drain pipes, causing them to crack or collapse. Additionally, root intrusion can create blockages within the pipes, hindering the flow of wastewater.

  3. Mineral Deposits: Hard water contains high levels of minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which can precipitate and accumulate on the interior surfaces of drain pipes. Over time, these mineral deposits can constrict the diameter of the pipes, restricting the passage of water and leading to clogs.

  4. Foreign Objects: Foreign objects accidentally flushed down drains or introduced into plumbing fixtures can cause blockages. Common culprits include hygiene products, paper towels, cotton swabs, and children’s toys. These items can become lodged in the pipes, creating obstructions that impede the flow of water.

  5. Improper Installation or Sloping: Drain pipes that are improperly installed or lack adequate slope can contribute to drainage problems and clogs. Insufficient slope can result in stagnant water pooling inside the pipes, allowing debris to accumulate and form blockages over time.
