How to Manage Plants to Avoid Blocked Drains

Tree roots and plant debris are some of the most common causes of blocked drains in Brisbane. They can also be some of the toughest blockages to clear.


Prevention is the best medicine when it comes to clogged drains caused by the plants on your property. If you want to avoid the hassle of overflowing drains, you should do the following:

  • Consider where you plant trees – Tree roots seek out water, and they can find their way into pipes through small cracks and gaps. Avoid planting shrubs and larger trees near stormwater or sewer drains on your property.
  • Keep gutters clear – Leaves, twigs and debris in your gutters can be flushed down the drain and cause blockages. Regularly clean your gutters to make sure drains keep flowing.
  • Prune any flora that overhangs your roof – You can simplify the process of cleaning gutters by pruning trees and branches that overhang your home. If the tree belongs to a neighbour, you are allowed to remove any branches that overhang your property.
  • Clean up your yard – Fallen leaves, grass clippings and loose dirt can all end up down the drain. It’s a good idea to keep your yard clean of any debris that may be washed into your drainage system.Keep plants well-watered – Watering your plants discourages them from going in search of water and potentially invading your drains.

How to Manage Stormwater on Your Property To Avoid Blocked Drains

Managing stormwater is one of the biggest challenges in Brisbane. The local climate means that stormwater runoff can overwhelm standard drains, which may cause the system to backup and overflow.


There are a few things you can do to manage stormwater on your property:


  • Invest in yearly drain cleaning – The best thing you can do to manage stormwater is to have your drains professionally cleaned every 12 months. Our blocked drain plumbers use hydro jetters to clear debris and ensure your drains are ready for storm season.
  • Keep your gutters clear – Leaves and debris build up in your gutters over time. These leaves will eventually be washed down into your drains, and they may cause a blockage. Having your gutters cleaned once or twice per year is a simple way to prevent blocked drains.
  • Be mindful of natural drainage – Natural and manmade features like slopes, retaining walls, trenches and fences can cause stormwater drains to overflow. If you are building a new house or planning landscaping, speak to a plumber about designing a proper drainage system for your home.

Issues like water backing up after storms, foul smells coming from drains and damp patches in your yard are all signs that something is wrong with the system. Get in touch with Liqwyd Solutions if you’re experiencing problems with your stormwater drains.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do drains get blocked?

Household drains can become blocked for dozens of reasons. The most common causes include:

  • Build ups of soap and hair

  • Invading tree roots

  • Deposits of dirt, silt and mud

  • Foreign objects

  • Build ups of grease and fat

  • Backing up due to stormwater

  • Broken and collapsed pipes

  • Toiletries such as non-flushable wipes

Whatever the cause, blocked drains can lead to major flooding, so they should always be addressed immediately.

What equipment and technology do you use to unblock drains?

Liqwyd Solutions are Brisbane’s expert blocked drain plumbers. If you’re having issues with blocked pipes or drains, we use a mix of CCTV drain cameras and hydro jetters to clear the issue. Inspections with a camera and clearing with a hydro jetter is included as standard in the price of our blocked drain service.
Drain cameras are a special type of fibre optic camera. These cameras can be fed into any pipe on your property without having to damage the plumbing. Using a camera provides a clear picture of the inside of your pipes, and the depth and distance sensors make it easy to find blockages that are located underground.
Once we’ve found the source of the blockage, we use hydro jetters to clear the issue and keep your day flowing. Hydro Jetters use extremely high pressure water to clear away buildups of hair, soap, grease, dirt and foreign objects.

Is the Landlord or Tenant responsible for a blocked or clogged drain?

According to the Residential Tenancies Authority, the Landlord is responsible for blocked and clogged drains if the blockage occurs due to fair wear and tear. This includes issues like invading tree roots, or damage caused by the Landlord.


The Tenant is responsible for contacting a plumber if they caused the issue. For example, blockages caused by build ups of hair or damage caused by the Tenant is the Tenant’s responsibility.
Liqwyd Solutions works with both Tenants and Landlords. If you’re unsure whether you’re responsible for an issue in your home, give us a call and our blocked drain plumbers can assess the situation.

Where to report sewage issues?

Blocked sewage pipes can lead to leaks and overflowing. If you notice sewage problems on public land, contact Urban Utilities immediately on 13 23 64. If the sewage leak occurs on your own property, call a licensed plumber immediately.

Why use a drain camera for a blocked drain?

We use drain cameras to locate blockages as a standard part of our service. By using a camera, we can locate the blockage, determine the cause and ensure the problem is dealt with properly.
It’s not always easy to find a blockage in a long plumbing run. It’s one thing if your kitchen sink is clogged with food scraps, but it’s a much bigger issue when stormwater drains are blocked by tree roots. We’re the blocked drain plumber Brisbane trusts because we make sure the problem is repaired properly the first time around.
