Where Are Your Drains Located?
Is your drain located outside your house or inside your house? Drains located outside in the open tend to block often as a result of fallen leaves. They are the biggest culprit. Dried leaves are light, and as a result t is easily blown by wind into pipes and drainages. At first they are harmless dead leaves, but as they accumulate they create a barrier to the flow of sewage or water.
Blockage inside the house is usually caused by obstructions such as hair, sanitary products, soap and towels.
Which Part of the House is the Blockage?
If the blockage takes place in the toilet be more careful of what you flush down there. Only flush excrete and small pieces of tissue.

How to Prevent Blockage of your Drains
