Causes of Blocked Drains by Paradise Plumbing & Gas

Posted on July 12, 2016

Grease and fat are one of the most common causes of clogged drains. Any fatty substances which are washed down the sinks will stick to the inside of the pipes, eventually building up so much that no more liquid can pass through.

Hair can also pose a large problem for plumbing drainage. Over time this can worsen, preventing liquid from passing through it altogether. As the hair flows down the pipes, it gets caught on the drainage pipes and clumps. As the hair clumps grow larger, the drain's water removal rate begins to slow.

Even though soap is designed to use with water, it can create a buildup in the pipes that creates drainage issues. Bars of soap, combined with hard water can leave residue on the pipes. The residue can restrict the amount of space necessary for water to run smoothly down the pipes.
