- WPT (Wet wipes, Paper towel, Tissue) – Yes, how you use these items after crapping and taking a leak matters over time. You can be as wasteful as you want, but you can also be considerate to your sewers by only using and flushing a reasonable amount. Experts say, while they all look flushables, not all of them are designed equally. Some are only meant to absorb and don’t break down. So guess what will happen next if you dump them in the toilet, they block the sewer system and cost you money. So the next time you visit the toilet, always remember this rule, only pee, poo and toilet paper, but not excessively should go down the drain. Sydney water also encouraged people to throw these items in the bin not into the toilet seat.
- Verdant trees – Your verdant trees may look wonderful and relaxing from outside your window, but when these trees grow they can become very aggressive to look for moisture on the ground. Your sewer pipes naturally attract roots. Typically, a crack or loose joint in a pipe allows vapor to escape towards moist soil. The moisture-seeking roots grow towards this, aggressively force their way into these cracks and start to cause trouble. As the roots grow inside the pipe, it can start blocking the sewage passage, until it becomes too constricted and eventually breaks.
- Lush patches in the yard – Every pipe in your home leads to the sewer line. It’s buried underground and unfortunately can rupture when they get old especially when they’re made of outdated materials, like clay. If an extra green lush patch in your yard has suddenly appeared, it is because of a pipe leak. Water seeping out the pipe will supply the surrounding grassy area with extra moisture that will stimulate the grass to grow hastily and result in a lush green appearance. So if this happens, it may not be your green thumb is the reason, but a sewer pipe leak. Ignoring a sewer leak can result in sewer pipe collapse.
- White residues – Notice those white solid residue in your bathroom, your pipes and in the drain? This ugly-looking white gunk forms when soap combines with hard water that contains salts of calcium and magnesium. When these minerals get in contact with the grease or fatty acids, which is an element in soaps they turn into a soap scum. Over time this gunk attracts molds and mildew, and creates a sizable obstruction in your drains until it will totally clog up. Unfortunately, depending on the extent of the clog, clearing it requires a blocked drain repair specialist, to properly locate and eliminate the clogs. Installing a drain mesh strainer is an effective way to capture scums before they make their way to the drains.
- Falling hair strands – Falling hair in the shower is something we don’t take notice of until it creates trouble in the drains. Humans lose hair everyday, that’s just the way it is. When your hair gets wet it can extend 30% longer than its original size, and they ball up during flushes because it doesn’t break down with water. A drain strainer is a great way to block larger hair accumulation from entering your drain, and all you’ll have to do is dump what was collected into the wastebasket. However, though a hair strainer may reduce the hair’s tendency to make its way to the drains and down to the sewer line, it is not 100% failsafe. Hair can still get through the drains and when this happens, it can restrict the water to flow freely to your sewer line.
