HOW we repair BLOCKED DRAINS in SYdney
Our Sydney drainage plumbers receive ongoing training and development to ensure we are up to date with the best industry practices. We have the technology and experience to confidently assess the cause of you Sydney blocked drain, and recommend solutions designed to address the underlying cause. Some of the comprehensive drain cleaning services we offer our Sydney customers include:
Want a clear picture of your drainage problems? Our CCTV drain inspection cameras will determine the exact cause and location of your Sydney blocked drain. A small camera is inserted into the drain, providing a detailed video of the pipes so we can recommend the best solution. A CCTV inspection can also identify potential future problems, saving you money in the long-run.
For blockages occurring in pipes outside of the home, JAB Plumbing Solutions uses pipe locating equipment that allows us to find underground pipes quickly and accurately. This means we can minimise any digging required so there is less disruption to your home and property.
High-pressured jet blasters are a quick and effective means of clearing tough blocked drains. Our jet blasters come with a range of cutting heads suitable for clearing tree roots, sediment, grease and much more. Once the blockage is loosened, a high pressured jet of water is sent down to completely flush out the line. Jet blasting doesn't just clear the blockage, it cleans the whole pipe.
EXCAVATE AND REPLACE
Blocked stormwater drains or blocked sewer drains may be caused by tree roots or collapsed pipes. In some cases where the damage is to great to repair, we may need to replace the affected area. We use CCTV cameras and pipe locators to minimise the amount of digging required.
Sydney BLOCKED DRAIN CAUSES
Rice, flour, pasta and other foods that swell can block kitchen sinks
Hair is the most common cause of blocked shower drains
Tampons, cotton balls and condoms cause blockages in the bathroom
Wet wipes don't break down properly and lead to severe blocked drains
FATS, OIL AND GREASE
Grease congeals and sticks to the sides of pipes - building up over time
Tree roots penetrate cracks in pipes and continue to grow inside
Signs you have a Sydney blocked drain
Blocked drains have a number of symptoms. Some are obvious - such as an overflowing toilet - while others are less so. Signs to watch out for include gurgling noises in the pipes; raw sewerage coming up into your garden; a foul smell that doesn't go away; water pooling around your feet in the shower; an overflowing sink; a toilet that fills up with water when flushed; sinks draining slowly. When multiple fixtures are clogging up it's normally a sign that there is a blockage further down the line. If you notice any of these signs it's important to call a Sydney plumber before the problem gets any worse.
TYPES OF Sydney BLOCKED DRAINS
INSIDE THE HOME
Every plumbing fixture inside the home has a small drain pipe that transports waste to the main pipes outside. Blockages that occur inside the home are located somewhere between the drain opening and the gully trap. Examples include a clogged toilet; blocked kitchen sink; blocked laundry sink, blocked shower drain or a blocked bath drain. These blockages are often easier and cheaper to fix than those located in the main drain pipes.
OUTSIDE THE HOME
Blockages outside of the house occur in the main drains - sewer drains and stormwater drains. Sewers may become blocked from household waste that is flushed/washed down the smaller pipes or by tree roots penetrating the pipes. Stormwater drains normally get blocked from leaves, dirt and sediment that washes down from gutters. Outside blockages will need to be cleared by a licensed plumber using specialist equipment.
How to prevent blocked drains in your Sydney home
Most Sydney blocked drains are preventable with a little care and planning. The easiest way to prevent blocked drains from occurring is to prevent foreign items from entering the sewer and stormwater pipes. Place grates over drain openings to catch things like food scraps in the kitchen, hair and soap in the bathroom, and leaves from entering stormwater openings. Always keep a bin next to the toilet and make sure bulky items such as tampons, condoms, cotton buds and wet-wipes are disposed of in the trash and never flushed.
