Tennyson is a river-side suburb which is seven kilometres south-west of Brisbane CBD. The stretch of river connecting the suburb is known as Canoe Reach, a name that arose from European contact pre-dating by a few months John Oxley’s settlement at Redcliffe. At the 2011 Australian census the suburb had a population of 859. The area was originally named Softstone by James Strong who was one of the original settlers, but by 1897 the name was changed to Tennyson. Tennyson is named after the British poet Alfred Tennyson.
Today, the area has been considered an exclusive riverside suburb with large sections dominated by trees and parks. Tree roots are mostly established in the inner layer of the ground as they continuously seek to find more nourishments including water to sustain growth. They may end up reaching the cracks and openings of underground pipes, they eventually will form a big clog which leads to hitches in the flow of water. Every household will also experience blocked drains primarily caused by many factors including grease, fats and small food particles which are slithered down these passageways. When they buildup, uncleansed waste water shoots up which could be harmful to owners and residents. Hair strands and soap suds get caught on the drainage pipes and clumps. As this further aggravates, the water removal rate begins to slow. Paper and other materials which should not be flushed down toilet drains also occurs, these materials will not breakdown easily and will lead to poor flushing or no flush at all.
