What should you do in case of a major Blocked drain?

Always check your drains for water rise within the area affected. If your plumber had found the location of the blocked pipes, it is important that they fix the issue as soon as possible to prevent any future damages. Here are some steps that will help you in preventing your pipe blockages: First, always have a specific and safe area where you plant your trees, try to make sure that it is not on top or near the pipe areas because as the plants grow, their roots become bigger and our pipes are very susceptible to root damages. Second, try not to pour fat down the sinks for this will solidify and cause the drain to block. Third, always check and be aware of the location and the connection where the pipes lead to before excavation. Preventive measures must be exercised in order to have a safe excavation without damaging your pipelines and may cause severe and costly damage. Fourth, never flush anything other than toilet paper down the toilet, even those “flushable wipes” that seem to be not so flushable. Fifth, try your best to know the location of access points around the home as these are important in the maintenance of your drains and could save you money if an issue was to occur.
