Clogged Shower Drains

Types of Blocked Drains

Older buildings are especially susceptible to blocked drains. The reason for this is due to the age and deterioration of drainage systems. Modern systems require heavier demand that older buildings might not be equipped for. Tree roots entering cracks in old and new drains is a major cause of blocked drains.

Additionally, depending on where your pipes are located, they may be more vulnerable to different blockages. Allanna Plumbing has years of experience working with kitchen blockages, bathroom blockages, laundry sinks, showers, toilets, stormwater drains, and any other blockage you may be facing.

Blocked Toilet & Shower Drains

Two of the most common blockages are blocked toilets and blocked showers.

While seemingly harmless, blocked toilet and shower drains can lead to significant damage. This can include the overflow of waste into your backyard garden, or even into the building. This will lead to expensive cleanups, strong odours, and potential damage to your building.

Like most plumbing problems, blocked toilets and showers are the result of accumulated damage. To prevent major damage from occurring, having your drains serviced at the earliest signs of blockage is essential.

One major sign of a blockage includes audible gurgling noises from your toilet or shower.

Blocked drains can cause significant damage to your home. Accumulated stagnant water will give off a stale and moldy odour. This awful smell can stick to surfaces and fill your building with an unpleasant and unhealthy atmosphere.  

Also, the water can make its way into the corners and foundations of the building and compromise its structural integrity. The dampness can get into the floorboards or walls, which leads to water stains, discoloration, and deformation. Failure to address it for an extended period of time can make these areas prone to flooding.

Additionally, stagnant water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes, pests, and different insects that may transmit germs and diseases. Also, it will make that area subject to bacteria, mold, and mildew.


Grease Blockages

The build-up of grease over a length of time makes blocked drains a frequent occurrence in households and commercial kitchens.


Hair is one of the most common causes of drain blockages. This is because it tends to bind with grease and other sticky materials to form clogs. Hence, the most effective way of handling hair blockages is to ensure that they don't occur from the onset. Make sure that all drains have guards to trap hair and also ensure that you clear them frequently.

Mineral Build Up

Minerals that are found in water can accumulate and form insoluble masses that can quickly cause drain blockages. If hard water constantly causes problems in your region, then one way to address this is by installing a water softener for your home. If it isn't possible to do so, you will have to periodically descale and get rid of the sediment and build up. The accumulation of minerals can be hard to get rid of once it has formed.

Tree Roots

The tiniest cracks or leaks in pipes located underground can promote the growth of tree roots. After entering your pipes, the tree roots can grow larger within a short time and interrupt water flow and lead to pipe damage. Removing tree roots from pipes requires expertise and may need pressure jet cleaning, trenchless repair, and in some cases, excavation. Check out the root structure of the trees and plants within your home and monitor the state of your drains to ensure that you don't have to deal with extensive and costly repairs.
