How and why do blocked drains occur?
Blocked or clogged drains can occur for a variety of reasons, ranging from materials or tissues being flushed down the drain to leaves, branches and other garden waste collecting inside your drain outside your home.
Our experienced plumbing team has fixed thousands of blocked drains over the years and can quickly identify the source of your drain blockage. Some of the most common causes of blocked drains include:
Kitchen and food waste such as debris from food disposed of down the drain, such as coffee grounds, small food particles and other food waste.
Cooking oils and spreads that contain oily fats, which can collect inside the drain and cause a local blockage.
Tissues, toilet paper and sanitary pads that are disposed of incorrectly or in excess, which can build up inside the drain and block the flow of water.
Hair, which can collect inside bath and shower drains over time and prevent water from flowing properly.
Dead leaves, dirt, gravel and other small garden items, which can fall from trees or move from pathways and become lodged inside the drain.
Tree roots, which can grow towards pipes and joints, causing serious blockages to the flow of water.
Most of the time, the cause of a blocked drain is easy to work out by checking the environment around the drain and identifying potential hazards. However, in some cases, blocked drains are caused by items lodged deep inside the drain and can be harder to locate and identify.
Common signs of a blocked drain:
The most obvious sign of a blocked drain is lack of drainage. If you allow water to flow into the drain and it fails to drain properly, or it drains at a very low speed, it’s extremely likely a drain or sewer blockage is causing the problem. Other common signs of blocked drain include:
Loud gurgling or drainage noises when water flows down the drain, far beyond the normal noise created by water draining out from your sink, bath or shower.
Unusual or unpleasant odors from the drain, usually caused by stagnant water that collects inside the drain pipe over time.
A blocked toilet or an unusual toilet water level caused by water not being able to drain properly from the toilet.
Unusually weak water pressure in your faucets and shower head caused by a lack of proper drainage.
Water collecting near drains in your yard or outside your home, which is usually a result of dead leaves and other garden waste collecting inside drain pipes.
Poor draining in your sink, bathtub, and shower, including drains that work but are unusually slow and inefficient.
The signs of a blocked drain can occur suddenly, even when objects collect in your drain over time. Often, a drain blockage can go from unnoticeable to severe very quickly as items collect inside the drain and gradually have an impact on the ability of water to flow freely.
What to do if you have a blocked drain:
If one of your drains is blocked or clogged, it’s important that you don’t attempt to clean it out by yourself. Doing so can often make the problem worse, especially if you attempt to “flush out” the cause of the blockage by allowing more water to flow into the drain.
We are available 24 hours a day to unblock drains in the Los Angeles and San Fernando area. If you have a blocked drain or sewer, please call us on (424) 284-8806 before you try to clear the drain by yourself.
How to keep your drains and sewer clean:
While some drain and sewer blockages are unavailable — for example, plants and trees growing in your yard that break into a drain because of their root structure — most can be prevented with some simple care:
Avoid disposing of sanitary pads, contraceptives, large amounts of tissues or other items using the toilet, as these substances can easily become lodged in the drain and prevent water flow.
Never dispose of fats and cooking oils down the drain, especially those that harden at room temperature. Instead, allow your excess cooking oil to cool before storing it inside a sealed container and disposing of it with your regular garbage.
To prevent shower and bath drain blockages, install a drain protected to collect hair as it flows into the drain. Remove the hair and clean the drain protector every month to keep your drain clean and blockage-free.
Dispose of food waste in the garbage or use a garbage disposal unit to ensure your food waste is processed into particles small enough to pass through plumbing without causing blockages.
Clean your garden regularly, paying special attention to dead leaves and other waste in areas around your drains and sewers. These objects can easily fall into drains and lead to blockages or reduced flow.
If you have a blocked drain, call us as soon as possible to ensure it’s unlocked before any damage can occur.

Los Angeles Drain and Sewer Inspection
One of the most important steps in repairing a blocked drain is identifying the root cause of the blockage. We use cutting-edge video technology to identify the primary cause of blocked drains and sewers, eliminating guesswork and allowing us to provide quick and efficient service.
Drain and sewer pipe inspection cameras allow us to inspect the whole length of your drains or sewer lines, letting our expert plumbers identify the exact location of blockages and eliminating the need for excavation.
During our drain and sewer inspections, we can often identify other types of damage to drains and pipes, including cracks and broken components, sagging and collapsed pipes, blockages caused by tree and plant roots and more.
If our inspection shows that your blocked drain is caused by a tree root, our team can provide a full assessment of the damage and let you know the best options for repair before getting down to work.
