They can enter a pipe through cracks which are caused by movement in the ground, fault in materials used, improper installation, or just because huge tree roots that can severely damage even the sturdiest of pipes.
Sand, dirt and silt are also common causes of drainage blockages in Doolandella as it often enter pipes, mostly through storm-water drains but also when washed down sinks. To remove silt and debris from a pipe a method called hydrojetter is used to to flush away any blockages.
