Location of the Drain: Outdoor & Indoor
The location of the drain plays a major role in the types of problems created.
An outdoor drain will bring in a different set of problems when considered to the indoor drain.
Outdoor drain problems are mainly caused due to the build-up of dead leaves, overgrown tree roots that may block the water flow of the pipes. Whereas in an indoor drain the problems are generally caused due to the blocks made from other than human waste like sanitary products, paper towels, hair and even tissues/ wipes.
Indoor Drain and their types (Bathroom, Toilet or Kitchen)
