Ground movements due to excavations and ground saturation in line with ongoing constructions can cause crushed or broken pipes. These immediately attract materials and grit/sand deposits especially in main pipelines which cause an abrupt blockage of water. Tree root ingress is a common occurrence wherein roots paved its way to the openings to get fresh supply of water and nutrients. They form a large ball of root strands which snarl-up liquids and sewage water to reach its destination. These can be very annoying and inconvenient especially to household owners and tenants. Bad housekeeping can also be an ingredient to block drains. A common household culprit will be solidified grease which forms due to the mixture of cold water with fatty substances, oil and greasy food particles.
