When a sewer line is blocked, raw sewerage can backup into your home through multiple plumbing fixtures including toilets, bathtubs, sinks and floor grates. Depending on the location of the blockage it may back up outside so its a good idea to do regular checks on your outside overflow relief gully drain if you suspect a blockage.


  • Gulping or gurgling sounds
  • Smelly drain grates
  • Toilet water rising above or falling below ordinary levels
  • Toilet water taking a long time to subside after flushing
  • Floor waste overflowing during showering
  • Slow discharging toilets and sinks
  • The water seal at the bottom of your toilet being lower or higher than normal
  • Surcharge or overflow from from toilets, bathtubs, sinks, floor grates or outside overflow gullies.

Some common causes:

  • Sediment build up over time
  • Cracks in the joints
  • Breaks in the pipe wall
  • Insufficient gradient or fall of the pipe
  • Misaligned pipes or completely collapsed pipes due to incorrect installation
  • Wet wipes-wet wipes don’t break down properly and lead to severe blocked sewer drains
  • Sanitary items that don’t break down such as Tampons,Cotton balls and Condoms cause blockages in the bathroom
  • External forces such as pressure from large tree roots or ground movement
  • foreign objects such kids toys, balls and women’s sanitary products.
  • Tree roots
