What can cause sewer blockage?

A blocked or clogged sewer can be caused by grease, food, hair, and in some cases mud and leaves. Sometimes people put things down drains that just don’t belong there. These include:

  • Wet wipes (baby wipes)
  • Fats, oils or grease (from the kitchen or car)
  • Needles
  • Cotton buds
  • Prescription medication
  • Solvents, paint and turpentine
  • Chemicals, herbicides and pesticides
  • Plastics including food wrappers and apple stickers
  • Contraceptive devices
  • Food scraps including egg shells, bones and cooked rice
  • Dairy products
  • Coffee grounds
  • Paper towel
  • Nappies
  • Feminine hygiene products like tampons or sanitary pads.
  • “Flushable” wipes should never be flushed

Trees can block drains also as the roots going looking for nutrients, so it is a good idea to find out the location of your waste water pipes before planting trees. There is a handy guide on Sydney Water’s website to assist you with the location of waste water pipes - sydneywater.com.au

Generally, it is better to keep trees six metres away from pipes - check in with the local nursery for information on trees and their root systems.

If you do have trees that might be a problem, call us and we can look at the best way to manage your wastewater pipes.

If you have a clogged drain but it is not on your property, we can call Sydney Water and request them to fix it.
