Why is your drain blocked?
Over the years we have seen many different reasons for a drain to become blocked; from a kids toy flushed down a toilet to a collapsed pipe. However, the 3 most common reasons we see for blocked drains are:
- Fats, Oil and Grease (FOGs) poured down sinks and solidifying
- Waste Matter (think toilet paper etc) becoming stuck to damaged pipe lining
- Tree Roots
Common ways to clear a blocked drain
If you go onto the internet and search "how to unblock a drain"; you'll find lots of interesting ways to clear a blockage. These can be things like baking soda, hot water or coke through to using compressed air. There is a good reason why Plumbers don't use these methods; they don't work effectively. Plumbers will generally use one of the following methods:
- A chemical such as Draino
- A Plumbers' Eel
- A Water Jetter
These all have their own pros and cons, but whichever method is used it is important that you don't damage the pipe lining.
Prevent future blocked drains
Clearing a clogged drain is only half the job, as you've not fixed the underlying problem. For example, if you've cleared a blockage caused by a rough/damaged pipe lining and you don't fix the pipe lining; it stands to reason it can happen again. Similarly when you clear away tree roots but don't repair the crack where the tree roots first got in.
At Pure Plumbing Professionals, we will not only clear away any blockage, but can also send down a camera to identify exactly what caused the blockage initially. We will then provide you with solutions to fix this problem. This could involve digging up the pipe and replacing the damaged section or using the latest in "No Dig" technology to reline the damaged pipe.
So for all your blocked drain problems in Ryde, we can help.
