Blocked drains can disrupt the movement of water through your home and wreak havoc along the way—so if you notice any signs, including water backing up out of a drain or toilet, or gurgling noises from a drain, you need to call expert Canberra blocked drain plumbers to resolve the problem.
If the drain blockage is bad enough, water that can’t pass through will eventually have to go somewhere, with wastewater accumulating someplace you don’t want it. This can cause problems ranging from bad odours to structural damage or more.
The solution? You’re going to need a plumber to clear your Canberra drains and ensure they are in full working order. But before you call a blocked drain plumber for help, it’s critical you check they are the best local plumbers around. That is of course unless you use the Best Plumber Club. Then the research is already done for you!
Our network of fully licenced plumbers are ready to help, with upfront pricing and guaranteed workmanship. All you need to do is give us a few details, and the best plumber will be in touch, fast!
Blocked Sink Drains
Have you noticed a sink slow to drain, or even bad smells from a sink drain? You don’t need to put up with it or let it get worse when the best plumbers are available to unblock it for you!
Blocked Stormwater Drains
You might not notice a blocked stormwater drain until significant rainfall. By then it can cause serious water damage and flooding. Make sure your stormwater drain system clears water quickly and is free of tree roots and blockages with plumbers that have all the right equipment to get the job done.
Blocked Toilets & Sewer Drains
Blocked toilets and sewers are more than an awkward situation. Whether you have guests or urgently need facilities, if your toilet won’t flush properly then you need it fixed fast. An overflowing toilet is a safety and hygiene issue.
Blocked Shower Drains
Blocked shower drains are usually caused by a build up of hair and other debris. You can try to unblock a shower with a drain snake, or call in experts to be sure it’s done right and not going to come back a few months later.
Expert Blocked Drain Equipment
Don’t trust any old plumber with your drains! Not every Canberra plumber has the specialist equipment needed to ensure the job is done right. The best plumbers carry powerful water jetters capable of blasting through tree roots and other obstructions. A CCTV drain camera inspection means they can show you the drain is cleared and identify any further issues such as cracked or collapsed pipes. Hire a plumber without such equipment and you risk the blockage returning and another callout.
What’s Causing Your Canberra Blocked Drain?
Blocked drains can be caused by a number of things. A few common causes include:
Improper Disposal Of Fat And Grease
Many homeowners improperly wash fats, oils and grease straight down the kitchen sink every day—things like butter, lard, meat fat, cooking oil and shortening. It’s not only bad for the environment but can lead to a blocked sink drain or clogged pipes anywhere in the system by sticking to the inside of pipes, limiting flow until you have a full-blown blockage.
There is a simple answer: The place to dispose of any significant amount of fat or grease in the garbage pail, not the sink. You might think you’re just washing it away, but the invisible build-up will eventually make itself known, often in disastrous ways.
Spreading tree roots can cause a blocked sewage drain, wreaking havoc on your sewage lines and even causing pipes to burst. If this occurs, it likely will result in blockage and eventually a blocked toilet drain—causing a toilet clog or overflow—or a blocked shower drain or other problems.
The best plumbers will clear the offending roots, get the water flowing again properly through the pipes and, if appropriate, cut the roots most likely to find their way back into the pipes in order to prevent future problems.
If you call a Canberra blocked drain specialist for any emergency drain clean, he or she has probably seen it all. People flush all kinds of things they shouldn’t down the toilet, such as nappies. For that matter, children sometimes flush small toys just to see what happens! These are frequent causes requiring plumbing services to find and clear the source of the block.
The best blocked drain plumbers may also be required to help with unblocking drains caused by a more common problem: hair build-up in the drain. To deal with even these common causes of blocked drains, it’s often inadvisable to use store-bought drain cleaners that can damage your pipes.
