A blocked drain can be a very messy problem but if you can’t find the source of the blockage, it can become a nightmare. Water stops flowing correctly, pours out of gullies, floods around walls and becomes a resting place for all sorts of bacteria and the the source of foul smells.
Perhaps you have tried every remedy you can think of. You’ve unfastened the sink U-bend and poked around. No blockage. The pipes seem to be clear. Yet the gulley is overflowing. There doesn’t seem to be any grease or debris on the gulley. It’s a mystery as to why the drain is blocked.
Look Around the Garden
This is the time to look around the outside of the house. Where are the nearest trees and bushes? These could well be the culprits.
Tree roots are rather fond of drains. They are generally warmer than the surrounding ground. As the tree grows, its roots thus move closer to the drain. As they move, they grow new stems that are also attracted by the drain. With time they can exert pressure on the side of a drain, even causing a small crack. Water starts to ooze out of the crack, slowly at first, but it attracts more tree roots that see it as a source of moisture. The crack widens and before you know it the tree root not only has wrapped itself around the drain but has grown inside it too.
