Some homeowners are often unsure as to why their sewers are continually backing up, here are some reasons why this could be continually occurring.
Sewer lines flow using gravity and therefore normally follow the natural slope in the ground.
Issues can occur either within the main lines or within the service line that the homeowner is responsible for.
In our experience within residential properties the main causes of blockages we find are:
- Cracks due to tree root intrusion – within in the Sydney are we see this to be the most common culprit
- Cracks from poorly connected pipes which causes tree roots to infiltrate or causes a lip where toilet paper can backup
- System deterioration, we see this frequently with old earthenware pipes they crack over time with ground movement
- Large holes, voids in pipe work
- Insufficient flow
- Accumulation of grease
- Hair build up from bathroom floor wastes and vanities
- Sanitary items being flushed down the toilet that do not break down and over time cause a backup of waste material
If you think you have any of these issues within your property, contact the Aqua King team and see how we can assist you.

How Aqua King Services has helped solve a blocked sewer that has plauged the owner for over two decades using Pipe Relining.
How Aqua King Services has helped solve a blocked sewer that has plauged the owner for over two decades using pipe relining.
This is what Gavin Playford from Fairfield shared about his experience with enlisting the services of Aqua King to solve his issues with blocked pipes that has been with him for over 2 decades. Aqua King remedied the issue using their no dig pipe relining technology and techniques and have made Gavin’s mind finally rest at ease:
“USE AQUA KING
I have lived at the same, quarter acre block, address, for 24 years. I really just assumed that when you had an old house on a big block, one of your yearly tasks was, to have to hire a, clapped out, electric eel. With this I would attempt to clear blockages in my sewerage pipes, as best I could, to allow the contents of the toilet bowl to recede, whilst at the same time trying to do it as quickly as possible to avoid the exorbitant hiring costs. (I believe I have spent more on total hire costs of eels, without curing my drainage problems, than the fabulous team at AQUA KING charged me, too, in one day permanently remedy my long term complaint.
I researched, on the internet, various modern techniques for solutions, without digging, to drainage problems. AQUA KING’s webpage was simple to negotiate and explained the complex process of relining old broken pipes, in a very detailed, but easy to understand manner. I submitted a request for additional information and was swiftly contacted by Renee who was exceptionally charming, and informative. Renee emailed me a variety of options, with the associated small costs, for cleaning and filming, all the interior of my sewer. This provides the ability to be able to then, ACTUALLY SEE, where and what the issues are with your pipes.
I didn’t act immediately on the information Renee sent me, and was refreshed to receive only one follow up enquiry about my interest in the product. I made a booking for one of the cheapest options with the ability to upgrade if something was detected that could be fixed on the day. My appointment day turned out to be an utter disaster for David, the tradesman assigned to my appointment. I won’t go into the drama that befell Dave that day, but as he kept AQUA KING’s office continually updated, they intern, were able to keep me informed, so Dave’s misfortune didn’t impact on me.
When David arrived he was polite, apologetic, friendly and efficient. Soon afterwards, he was sending a camera down my sewerage pipe. He identified a couple of badly damaged sections which he was able to show me, right then and there, using the equipment’s monitor. It was strange looking at the section of pipe that had caused me immeasurable frustration and cost me a fortune in time and money in the past. I consulted with David as to what would be the most efficient and economical way it could be repaired. He explained how he could achieve it and how much it would cost me.
It feels a little false referring to the reline process as a repair really, because (as was the case with my sewer) the mend that AQUA KING did, actually replaced completely missing sections of earthenware pipe with complete structural integrity intact. I agreed to have AQUA KING return to fix, once and for all, the problem that had plagued my sewer, for most of my adult life.
On the date arranged, Dave arrived, with Sergio, promptly on time and begun all of the preparation required to do the job. As it is such a fascinating and innovative method that they were utilising, I wanted to watch the various stages as I was very curious about the way it worked in practise. Both men were courteous and thorough in explaining answers to any questions I asked and, although extremely busy, gave the impression of, nothing being too much trouble. As the job proceeded new difficulties arose, but solutions were put in place to resolve issues, as soon as they presented themselves.
Because AQUA KING have purchased, up to date, state of the art equipment, they can use techniques that increase the performance of their product and reduce the time and inconvenience of having the work done at your home. I can now relax, knowing that I won’t have to go and hire an electric eel again. At each and every stage, the employees of AQUA KING made me feel, informed, happy and comfortable and with everything.
I heartily recommend to everyone with any sort of drainage problem to contact AQUA KING as their first resort. They will provide you with service and results, whose quality, flexibility, efficiency and customer focus are surpassed by no one.

Drain Clearing: Symptoms You Need a Professional
Plumbing problems can lead to issues throughout the home. From flooding to a leaky sewer, you’ll want to act fast to prevent the problem from getting worse. A blocked drain will require professional attention in order to avoid issues down the road. If you suspect you need drain clearing services, there are a few signs to look for. There are many things that could lead to a blockage, including sanitary products, hair, leaves, debris, food / oils, cleaning product residue, fragrances, and tree roots.
The Signs of a Drain Blockage
Before you call a drain clearing professional, you’ll want to look for signs you have a drain blockage. They include:
- Water filling up in the shower
- Foul odours coming from sinks, drains, and laundry areas.
- Toilet isn’t maintaining a normal water level.
- A noticeable overflow of water outside.
- Water is backing up in the sink.
This is an example of how pipe relining can prove beneficial for you and can resolve issues with your blocked or broken pipes with minimal mess and interruption to your every day life. One of our recent customers wanted to share their experience and this is what he had to say:
“We had been plagued by repeated blockages in our sewer line due to tree roots invading pipe joints. these blockages would often occur at times when we had guests – not a good look!
We were usually faced with a wait before a plumber arrived and this compounded the problem. pipe clearing would give us six to twelve months before blocking again.
We tried the chemical solution that kills invading roots but that seemed about as effective as plain pipe clearing and was considerably more expensive.
We contemplated digging up and replacing the pipes but that would have meant damage to the patio and back garden, so we were resigned to the regular clearing process.

Over the years we have had many customers call us out to jobs where they have had numerous plumbers attend to the blockage however have not had success. They spent copious amounts of money and still remained with the same issue.
We had another of these today, a commercial shopfront that had sewerage leaking through to the shop for a few days. Three plumbers were called to jetblast and unblock / clear the blockage as there were suspected tree root intrusion within the pipes. On all three occasions the plumbers were unsuccessful we were obviously the 4th call and luckily for the owner and tenant the final call.
Our professional plumbers attended the site and found the area that the tree roots were penetrating and managed to clear the pipe and remove the debris with the high pressure jetblaster and also with the aid of our CCTV equipment.
As you can imagine the owner of the business was quite apprehensive at first as they had sewerage continually leaking and had 3 tradesman already attend their premises and not resolve the issue they had little faith that it would be resolved. However their faith had been restored as there was no longer a blocked sewer and nor would there be any further sewerage spilling into their shop.
