We feel your pain. Nothing’s worse than a drain that’s blocked, clogged, sluggish, or won’t flush! And it always seems to happen at the worst possible time, doesn’t it? But DON’T WORRY for a minute!

The most common causes of a blocked drain are…

  • Sanitary items, or too much toilet paper flushed in your toilets
  • A build-up of grease and hair
  • Food scraps and foreign objects

But in some situations, you might be looking at much bigger problems.

Here are the most serious potential causes of clogged drains in your local area, and how Advanced Plumbing fixes the problem and gets you back to normal…

Incorrectly Installed Pipes

Does your subdivision have this problem? Many do. If pipes were laid incorrectly to begin with, years later the serious problems show up.

Ground Movement

Wherever the slightest shifting of the ground has occurred, your pipes could now be misaligned. This eventually causes blockages that can only be remedied by digging up the pipes and putting them back “in line” for clear water flow.


Old pipes corrode – slowly “closing up” inside! When very little water can get through, clogs are certain to plague you until the pipes are replaced.

Tree Root Infiltration

This is very common in Brisbane because of our natural environment. Tree roots are some of the most powerful forces on earth, and can wreak havoc if left unchecked. Just think what they’re doing to your pipes underground without you even knowing it!

Collapsed, Misaligned or Missing Pipes

Whatever the cause, sometimes the pipes underground take a beating. Collapsed pipes are very common in areas where nobody suspected or anticipated a problem. But once this happens, a dig-up must be done and the pipes must be replaced.

Sometimes, it’s as simple as a small section of pipe. Misaligned – or even missing pipe – will always cause plumbing problems until they’re replaced.

Aging Pipes

Old earthenware pipes and drains used rubber O-rings on every joint. Those have a lifespan of 10-15 years MAX and then rapidly deteriorate with age, allowing root infiltration. Once that happens, replacing the line is the only option.
