Personable, professional and meticulous serviceThe staff I encountered were all pleasant and honest. The plumber worked hard to repair my old unit, and was almost apologetic when he couldn't get the 20plus year old U it to work. The changeover to the new system was handled efficiently and all mess was cleaned up.

I had Adam come out to troubleshoot a gas fault, and he was courteous, punctual (unfortunately a lacking trait amongst most trades these days), professional and obviously very experienced & skilled at what he does. Very affordable for the fantastic service he provides. Highly recommended, thanks Adam!

My gas oven malfunctioned and the gas could not be turned off or the gas flow terminated. The service was incredibly prompt. The plumber was polite, helpful and an easy going guy who happily locked up my home once he was done. He offered to support me going forward in choices of new ovens etc, and I will definitely use Adam P&G going forward. Thank you - a stressful situation made very manageable very quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs of a blocked stormwater or sewer drain?

  • Flooding, large puddles, pools of water or sewerage around your home or garden
  • Overflowing downpipes
  • You hear gurgling sounds or detect unpleasant odours coming from the drain
  • Flooding above the surface grates of the drain during or after heavy rainfall

What problems can a blocked or damaged stormwater or sewer drain cause?

A buildup of water or waste in pipes can put a lot of pressure on the plumbing system and reduce its efficiency. In some cases, this can lead to the pipes and drains cracking or breaking, causing leaks, water damage and sewerage contamination around your home or yard.

As most of the drains and pipes are situated underground, any serious drainage system issues may require excavation, followed by repairs. This can be a costly, invasive, a time-consuming process and result in major disruption to your home or business.

Can I clear a blocked stormwater drain myself?

It’s best to leave this job to an experienced plumber, because stormwater plumbing systems are complex and often require extra equipment to remove the blockage. We will also be able to repair and clean the pipes for you afterwards, giving you peace of mind that the problem is fixed.

What does a professional stormwater drain cleanout involve?

The most effective way to clear a blocked pipe is to use a hydrojet, which sprays high pressure water to break down and remove the blockage, and thoroughly clean the inner cavity of the pipe at the same time. A mechanical drain cleaner can then be used to remove remaining debris if necessary.

Your plumber may also insert a CCTV camera to assess the cause of the blockage and the condition of the pipe or drain.

If the hydrojetting method alone is unable to clear the pipe, your plumber will need to adopt a more drastic approach, and physically remove and replace the affected part of the drain by performing an excavation.

How can I look after my stormwater and sewer drains?

In Adelaide, blocked stormwater drains are commonly seen after periods of heavy rain, so it’s helpful to check their condition before and after extreme weather events.

  • Remove debris that can cause blockages, such as rubbish, leaves and lawn clippings
  • Clean out the gutters
  • Ensure the drains are well maintained by quickly identifying and fixing leaking or damaged pipes
  • Refrain from pouring chemicals down the drain

What are the causes of a blocked drain?

  • Your drain may be damaged, broken, collapsed or misaligned.
  • Tree roots, debris or foreign objects may have accumulated in the drain.
