Reasons your drain is overflowing

There are a few factors that can affect and cause overflowing or leaking drains, including old and worn-out pipes or that there is the presence of foreign objects in the pipe system. Another factor can be the location of the drain blockage. Overflowing drains most commonly occur in the kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor drains.

1. Worn-out pipelines

If you are living in an older property where the drain pipe system is also old, blockages are more likely to occur, causing drains to overflow. Rust that has formed over the years can also cause pipes to malfunction, causing blockages in your sinks. If you have old pipelines, it is advisable to have an experienced plumber check the drainage system and make any necessary repairs if needed. With the use of CCTV cameras to inspect the drain, you will avoid unnecessary digging or knocking down of walls. If the pipes are old and rusted, having them replaced or repaired will prevent any future drainage issues.

2. Foreign objects

If your overflow is occurring in any of your indoor sinks, the blockage could be a result of paper towels, sanitary napkins, or other foreign objects flushed down your sink or toilet. These objects will get stuck in the drainage pipe, preventing water from flowing and hindering water movement. This is often when a sink or toilet overflows. If your outside drain is overflowing, there could be a blockage due to a build-up of leaves or dirt falling into the drain. This is especially likely if trees are directly above gutters or drains.

3. Location of the drain blockage

Finding the exact location of the blockage is crucial if it's in the bathroom or toilet it is usually due to sanitary products being washed down the toilet, or in the kitchen, it would be food or a build-up of grease and oil. Grease and oil are detrimental to drains as they accumulate on the side walls. Hair and food particles get stuck to the grease resulting in stubborn blockages.

How to prevent drains from overflowing?

Outdoor drains

Help prevent leaves, debris, dirt, and other kinds of waste from accumulating in your outdoor area by regularly sweeping and putting them in your garden waste. This will ensure they don't make their way to your drains and create a blockage hazard.

Bathroom drain

The basic rules are no foreign objects to be put in the toilet. Anything other than what the toilet was meant for could cause a blockage and the potential for an overflow. Napkins, facial wipes, tissues, and sanitary napkins must all be placed in a bin “not the toilet”. A build-up of hair can also cause clogging in bathtubs, showers, and bathroom sinks. The best practice is to collect any loose hair and hair that has built up in the drain outlet and throw it in the bin.

Kitchen drains

It's recommended to scrape all plates well before putting them in the sink to wash. Allow grease to cool in pans and then scrape it into your bin. Never pour oil or grease down your sink. If oil or grease is for some reason put down the sink, pour chilled water into the drain to flush the grease well. This method solidifies the grease to some degree making it easier to pass out of the pipes.
