Alderley is a northern suburb of the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia is located 7 kilometres north-west of the CBD. At the 2011 census, it had a population of 5,679.

Alderley has numerous warehouses, a police station and a community-based shopping complex that is anchored by one of only two remaining Bi-Lo supermarkets in Brisbane’s northern suburbs (the other one is located in Toombul). The majority of the shopping establishments in the area are at the intersection of Samford and South Pine Roads. There are no schools in Alderley. One of the well-known landmarks of the suburb is Sedgeley Park, which also has a swimming pool.
In prehistory, the area was inhabited by the Turrbal Aboriginal clan. Corroborees were held at Sedgeley Park estate. Alderley is an older suburb compared to a lot of other Brisbane suburbs, having had a Post Office since 1878 and a railway station since 1899.
The region’s development has attracted more and more people to live in this area, increasing the number of residential and apartment complexes. This also entails increasing occurrences of clogged or choked drains due to buildup of grease and oil from kitchens, as well as hair and foreign objects that have been flushed down bathroom pipes. To add to this dilemma, outdoor drains become an open invitation for dead leaves and even tree roots which can find their way into pipes and cause a barrier to the flow of water. Blocked drains here are also often caused by sanitary products, paper towels or other hard to flush materials which can clog pipes and obstruct drains.
