- Blocked sinks
Blocked sinks are normally due to fats, oil and grease. Instead of passing straight through the drain, FOG cools down and sticks to the pipes. They start to build up, and over time, they will completely block the passage of water and other materials through the pipes. Food scraps, toothpicks and soap scum can also cause sink blockages.
- Toilet blockages
The most common reason for blocked toilet is toilet paper. There are some toilet papers that don’t easily dissolve in water. However, there are several occasions when diapers, menstrual pads, sanitary napkins and tampons are the ones clogging the system.
- Shower drain blockages
Shower drain blockages normally occur due to the accumulation of human hair and soap residue. However, there are also many instances when they are caused by dirt build up and small plastics, which used to be part of soap or shampoo package.

Gutters problems usually occur due to debris that are clogging up the gutters. These include broken tree limbs, dust, leaves and even plastic bags.
