WHAT CAUSES A BLOCKED SEWER SYSTEM?
Sewer pipes of all sizes can become blocked in the same way. As soon as any waste becomes trapped, it can catch other refuse. As modern sewers deal with such a wide range of materials, it is all too easy for them to become blocked. Some of the most common materials which can cause these sewer pipes to become blocked include:
- Fats, Oils and Greases – Otherwise known as FOG waste, fats, oils and greases are one of the most common causes of blockages in the UK. This kind of waste can easily adhere to the inside of drain pipes, in addition to other potential blockages.FOG waste is a serious concern for all kinds of sewers. It’s no wonder that more and more businesses are choosing to equip their systems with a range of grease traps to prevent this waste entering the system.
- Unsuitable Materials – Either through ignorance or forgetfulness, many property owners in the UK still choose to dispose of unsuitable materials in their toilets. Flushing unsuitable materials can easily lead to serious blockages, which can be extremely costly to repair. Some of these unsuitable materials can include:
- Wet Wipes and Baby Wipes.
- Makeup Waste.
- Medical Waste.
- Food and Human Waste.
- Hair and Soap Scum.
- Tree Root Intrusion – If your sewer pipes are close to a growing tree, it is possible for the roots to cause serious damage. Tree roots can cause a wide range of problems. They are attracted to sewer pipes due to the moisture and nutrients that they can sense inside them. They only need a slight crack, fracture or loose connection in order to grow into the pipe. From there, these roots can grow significantly quickly, creating an extremely difficult to move blockage in a short period of time.
THE RISKS OF NEGLECTING SEWER PIPE CLEANING
If you fail to ensure that your sewer pipe is cleaned on a regular basis, by a professional team, you could be putting your entire property at risk. A blocked or otherwise unclean sewer pipe can lead to a wide range of issues, many of which will require serious repairs and maintenance. Even minor issues within the sewer pipes can be extremely irritating.
Some of the greatest risks associated with sewer pipes can include:
- Burst and Broken Pipes – If the blockages in these pipes become severe, it is possible that the increase in system pressure will cause serious damage to the pipes themselves. This pressure can cause pipes to burst and break, leading to a range of other problems, including:
- Waterlogging – If water escapes into the surrounding soil, it can cause the land to become waterlogged. This not only makes the surrounding area unpleasant, it can also cause structural damage. Waterlogged earth will move and shift as it dries, which can cause your home or business’ foundations to move. In the worst cases, your foundations can even break or crack.
- Flooding and Standing Water – If water is allowed to escape from your sewer pipes, it can cause flooding across your property. This is another common cause of structural damage to all kinds of buildings. Even standing water can create unpleasant environments. In most cases, this water will often carry particles of waste with it – as such, it can cause serious health concerns.
- Blockages Leading to Backwash – If the blockages in the sewer pipe are complete, they can force waste and water to move backwards through the system. This can lead to the contents of the sewer rising up through grates and drains across your property.
