Plumbing problems never announce themselves and are disruptive for strata managers who look after several properties. A sudden plumbing disaster not only disturbs all scheduled work, and creates a backlog but is also expensive for a strata property.

Blocked drains can impact multiple residents in a strata building at the same time and results in significant damage to the water system. In the beginning, the clogging of drains is slow, but in a short time, the blockage can become almost total.

Burst or cracked pipes are the other common plumbing emergencies that can arise on strata properties. At Australia Wide Plumbing and Electrical, we understand that strata blocked drains in Sydney are an emergency. We send our emergency plumber in Sydney as quickly as we can.

Common Causes Of Strata Blocked Drains In Sydney

Several factors contribute to drain blocks, and experts try to identify the exact cause so that they can recommend the right solution to fix your problem. Here is a list of some reasons that generally lead to blocked drains in Sydney.

  • The Build-Up Of Materials – A variety of things that fall in kitchen sinks and bathrooms go straight into the drains. The commonest are oil, grease, food remnants, debris, vegetable cuts, fruit skins, and seeds, soap residue and hair. These form layers after layers on the insides of the pipes, and slow down the water flow. Mild clogs become more stubborn over time and ultimately bock the drain.  
  • Tree Roots Entering The Drains – Tree roots slip through the small cracks in underground pipes in search of moisture. As they get nourishment inside the pipe, they grow faster and clog the pipes in no time. We employ modern tools and techniques to remove these tough clogs.

  • The Collapse Of Old Pipes – Old and overused pipes become fragile and collapse under the weight of soil and building material that causes the drain to clog.

  • Water Damage And Severe Leaks – Near or around plumbing installations on the property can result in deterioration in the condition of the pipes and cause cave-ins.
