Clearing a blocked drain
There are several different ways you can clear a clogged drain. At Pure Plumbing Pros we recommend using a drain camera to see exactly where the blockage is and what is causing it. Then depending on access etc, we can use either a chemical (like Draino), a Plumbers' Eel or a Water Jetter to clear the blockage.
Causes of blocked drains
There can be many different causes for a blocked drain and we've probably seen most of them; from an object flushed down a toilet to a collapsed pipe. However, in most cases, the causes fall into the following three:
- Tree roots
- Waste material sticking to the side of the pipe
- Grease and Oil solidifying
Whilst these three are what cause the actual blockage, they are not the actual problem. The problems are:
- Tree roots - a crack or other opening in the pipe where the tree roots are gaining access
- Waste material sticking - caused by a rough or damaged pipe lining
- Grease and Oil - why are you pouring this down your sinks?
So this means that if we don't fix the actual problem, we can expect the blockage to come back again in the near future. After all, if we blast out the tree roots but not fix the cracked pipe; what's stopping the roots from doing what they do best and growing back.
Fixing a blocked drain
So other than the fats and oil example above, how do we fix a damaged pipe? We can either do it the same way Plumbers have been repairing pipes for centuries and dig it up and replace it. Or we can use the latest in trenchless technology to reline the damaged pipe while it is still in the ground. Both of these methods will fix your problem and have their own pros and cons.
So if you have a blocked drain at your home or work in the Sydney CBD, give us a go. Our Plumbers will clear your clogged drain and discuss the best method to prevent it happening again.
