What are common causes of blocked drains?
In most cases, a thorough clear out is needed for the following blockages: tree root intrusion, clogs (e.g. from solid matter, toilet paper, wipes, sanitary napkins, fats and grease, garden waste, kids' toys).
In other situations, you may see blockages arise from damaged, misaligned or broken pipes or shifting soil.
How do you clear a blocked drain?
It is relatively easy to clear a small blockage in a drain using basic tools purchased from the hardware store. However, if you are unsure about the cause of the blockage, or suspect you have a more serious problem, please contact one of our friendly plumbers.
We will come over and make an initial assessment of the drain and blockage using a CCTV camera to determine the condition of the drain, and the nature of the blockage. Then we come up with possible solutions to fix the problem, and give you a quote. This can potentially include simply removing a blockage, or drain relining, replacement or excavation.
We normally use a high pressure hydrojet (water jet) to blast tough blockages into small pieces, which are then removed by a mechanical drain cleaner.
How can I prevent a blocked drain?
By being mindful of what you pour down the drains, especially larger sized objects which can cause clogs, and substances which can stick together and to the pipes (see the list of common causes of blocked drains).
We also offer a non-intrusive pipe/drain relining service to reseal damaged drains which are otherwise structurally sound, to reinforce and extend the life of the drain.
