Blocked Drain Repairs Sydney…
CCTV drain Inspection
high-pressure water jetting
A high-pressure water stream is used to flush the blockage from a drainage system. Water jetting or hydro jetting is a highly cost-effective and time-saving repair for smaller blockages (grease, sand, food, wipes, paper towels, etc). It can cut through tree roots as well provided they are not too thick or solid.
No-dig drain relining
If your sewer drain pipe is damaged then you have no choice but to replace the pipe. The traditional method involves digging up your backyard or driveways. Thanks to trenchless blocked drain pipe relining you can repair a part or replace the whole sewer line without excavation.
Types of Blocked Drains We Repair
Blocked Toilet & Sewer
One of the most common problems we see is a clogged toilet. There could be a number of reasons for toilet blockages such as tree roots ingress, sewer leaking, or objects stuck in the toilet pipe. CCTV inspection together with jest blast is usually the way to go for blocked sewer or toilets.
Kitchen & Laundry Sink
The most common causes of sink blockages are grease, food, washing waste and dishwasher feeds. Unblocking sinks is often straight forward and doesn’t require complex procedures unless there is something else wrong with the pipes.
Shower & Floor Waste
Modern screen-free bathrooms can sometimes have long concealed drains with challenging accessibility. Regardless, we have the team and equipment to clear tight access shower drains and floor wastes without removing your tiles or waterproofing.
Outside drains are typically blocked by dead leaves and garden waste, soap scum, toiletries, grease, and damaged pipes. More often than not, it takes a plumber to unclog an outside drain especially if there is a tree root intrusion.
Warning Signs of a Clogged Drain
Grease, hair, or even soap get stuck and cause water to drain slower. If it is taking more than a couple of seconds for showers and sinks to empty you should know there is something wrong. Take immediate action starting with home remedies like baking soda, table salt, vinegar, drain cleaners, or plunger. If nothing works you need to call a plumber for a deeper investigation and a permanent resolution.
Stuff like food, grease, hair, and soap particles trapped in a drain for a while start decomposing and produce a bad odor. Not all stinky drains are clogged but, you need to take expert advice if the smell doesn’t go away even after you’ve tried several home remedies. If the smell is persistent it could mean a bigger problem such as a leaking or a blocked sewer.
Toilet Gurgling or Bubbling
Another clear sign of a blocked drain is that your toilet makes a gurgling sound. It happens when items are stuck inside a drain and the air is trapped which produces a funny sound. There are varying reasons for a blocked drain; sometimes it’s wipes, paper towels, kid’s shoes, or toys. More often than not, it’s an easy repair, but at times detailed investigation is required to find the cause.
