Causes of Blockages

Understanding the common causes of blockages can help you prevent them in the future. In many cases, blockages occur due to damage to the pipe work. Here are some of the most common culprits:
 

  1. Roots: Tree roots can infiltrate underground pipes, causing blockages and structural damage.

  2. Collapsed pipe: Aging or poorly maintained pipes can collapse, obstructing the flow of water.

  3. Foreign objects: Items such as sanitary products, wipes, or excessive toilet paper can clog pipes.

  4. Grease buildup: Fats, oils, and grease can accumulate in the pipes, gradually restricting flow.

  5. Hair buildup: Hair can accumulate in shower or bathroom drains, leading to blockages over time.

The Value of CCTV Inspections

At Oakland Plumbing, we understand the importance of utilizing technology to provide the best service to our customers. Unlike many other plumbers who either lack the necessary equipment or charge exorbitant fees for CCTV inspections, we include this service at no extra cost.
 

CCTV inspections are crucial in identifying hidden issues within your drainage system. By inserting a small camera into the pipes, we can accurately assess the condition, locate blockages, and detect any potential damage. This allows us to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your plumbing system and make informed decisions about the necessary repairs or maintenance.
 

To enhance our CCTV inspections, we also utilize pipe locating technology. This advanced system enables us to precisely determine the location and depth of any breakages, inspection openings, or blockages. By eliminating guesswork, we save both time and money while providing you with a clear picture of your plumbing system.
