Have a Blocked Drain in North Shore?
Blocked drains are not only a pain in the proverbial, but they can also pose a health risk. After all, you really don't want a blocked sewer pipe causing your toilet to back up over your floor. The good news is that Pure Plumbing Professionals are blocked drain specialists. Our Plumbers can not only clear any blockage but they can also repair the damaged pipe to ensure that it doesn't block again.
Clearing a clogged drain
There are 3 main ways to clear a blockage from a drain.
Draino and other chemicals
Chemicals are great if your drain is only partially clogged by semi-solid materials such as hair, grease or toilet paper. But beware, these chemicals can be quite harsh on your pipes' lining and won't work if fully blocked so the chemicals can't get to the blockage.
The plumbers' eel is a flexible length of metal that is pushed down the pipe to where the blockage is and then driven through it. Then by working the eel backwards and forwards through the blockage you clear most of it away. Once again, this process can be rough on your pipe lining and may cause problems down the track.
This is the most common method used by Plumbers now. This is essentially where the blockage is cleared using a jet of water. The biggest advantage with a water jetter is that it isn't as harsh on the pipe lining as a plumbers' eel.
Preventing Blocked Drains
Once you've cleared a clogged drain, you've then got to work out what caused the blockage initially. At Pure Plumbing Professionals we can use a drain camera to find out what the underlying problem is and then decide the best solution to fix this. This can generally be either:
- Digging up the damaged pipe and replacing it
- Using the latest "No Dig" technology such as pipe relining to repair the damaged section
So next time you have a blocked drain on the North Shore, get in contact. Our drain plumbers will not only unblock it, but also give you solutions to stop it happening again.
