What Do I Do?
The first thing you should do is immediately suspend introducing new water and waste materials into the drain. This means stop flushing your toilet, stop running water, and cease any activities that involve your outgoing waste water pipes until you have identified whether you have a blockage.
It is then advisable to contact a drainage specialist to identify if the drain is public property or private. In the event of the former, your local authority have a legal obligation to correct the problem for you.
Regular maintenance is the best solution. This is typically a yearly clean and review of your drains by a professional to insure any small issues don’t build up and become a larger problem.
You can also make sure that you don’t introduce large objects into your drains as they can easily become stuck.
Also give consideration towards what you put down your drains in regards to grease, fat, large amounts of paper and non bio degradable items such as sanitary products and ear buds.
