Any drainage system which is required to deal with inappropriate waste, or is regularly worked over-capacity, can easily become blocked. Having to deal with unsuitable waste is the most common cause of drain blockages in the UK.
These waste types will often adhere to the interior of your drain pipes. Even a small amount of waste will capture other waste types as it passes by.

It is even possible for some blockages to develop so gradually that you will barely notice them.

It will also strip away waste which has adhered to the interior of your drain pipe. This can prevent blockages from developing in the near future. It takes an experienced engineer to calculate the right amount of water and the correct pressure for your system.
