    We understand that every customer has different needs and a different budget, which is why we provide two drain repair options:



    Drain Repairs/Replacement (Traditional) Sydney

    This is the standard procedure for repairing damaged or deteriorated drains, and it entails the following steps:

    – If the damaged drain pipe runs beneath a walkway in your yard, the pavers will need to be removed.

    – To inspect the pipe, our team will dig into the ground. They will either recommend repairs or replacements based on their findings. Replacement becomes a more feasible and cost-effective option in the long run if the pipe is in poor condition in Sydney.

    – The soil will be returned to its original location once the drain repairs are completed. 

    This procedure can take a long time and, as you can see, is quite invasive. Fixing the dugout hardscaping features is an additional cost to consider when budgeting for drain repairs.


    Relining of Pipes Sydney

    There is now a much better option for drain repairs thanks to technological advancements. Trenchless drain repairs or pipe relining eliminate the need for extensive digging. The following is the procedure that was followed:

    – A CCTV drain camera will be used by our team to determine the extent of the damage.

    – At each end of the damaged drain pipe in Sydney, only two small trenches will be dug. The plumbers will examine the images and determine the best course of action. 

    – An epoxy sleeve is inserted into the cracked or damaged pipe during pipe relining. – When this sleeve is inflated, it forms a seamless lining that fits perfectly inside the underground pipe. This is a cutting-edge technology with a pipe lining in Sydney life expectancy of at least 50 years.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Blocked Drain Repairs and Maintenance

    How Much Does It Cost to Unblock a Drain Sydney?

    Blocked drain specialists will often charge a “Call Out Fee” of $60 to $150 in addition to a per-job rate or an hourly rate.

    $100 to $250 for a simple kitchen, bathroom, or toilet drain.
    Cleaning out heavy debris from your clogged pipes and drains will cost between $300 and $600.
    Replacement costs for drainage pipe repairs range from $700 to $3000.
    $5,000–$20,000 for pipe relining or new pipe replacement.

    You can anticipate paying extra depending on the techniques used to remove your obstruction and other materials employed.

    An emergency call-out fee will be charged if the job must be done on the weekend or beyond regular business hours. Depending on how difficult a job your blocked drain turns out to be, the cost to unblock your drain might vary substantially.

    What Are The Types of Blocked Drain Repairs?

    The most common kinds of clogged drains are clogged sewer, clogged storm water drain, and clogged soil drains.

    Do You Offer Preventative Drain Maintenance Services?

    Yes. With preventative drain maintenance, you can not only save yourself a headache and hassle in the future, but you can also save money.

    Are Drain Repairs Covered Under Insurance?

    Keep in mind that your insurance will only cover the drains on your property. If there are drains that connect to each other, the parts that are on your property will be covered. It’s important to remember that your neighbors are responsible for the drains on their property, even if you use them too.

    How Do You Unclog a Drain Pipe?

    If your drain line is clogged, you can use hot water, vinegar, and baking soda to unclog it in a cheap way. First, pour the hot water down the drain, then the baking soda, then the vinegar, and then, after letting the mixture sit for 10 to 15 minutes, pour more hot water down the drain. If this didn’t work, call the plumbers in Sydney.

    How Do Our Plumbers Unblock Drains in Sydney?

    It’s all the items you wouldn’t anticipate finding in the garage of the typical homeowner.

    It is impossible to unclog drain and sewer systems that have been clogged for years by coagulating cooking oil, shampoo, and hair with a bottle of Drano or a plunger.

    A little more force will be required to break apart and flush away tougher, denser obstructions. In order to help clear clogs, our professional plumbers at Quintessential Plumbing Sydney have access to a variety of tools that weren’t even invented in the plumbing industry ten years ago. Every skilled plumber has a variety of specialized tools in their truck, including pipe wrenches, blowtorches, and hydro-jetting equipment.

    How Long Does It Take a Plumber to Unblock a Drain?

    Quintessential Plumbing in Sydney drain cleaning takes only a few hours. Your cleaning service should complete the job in under three hours. We set up all of the drain cleaning equipment during those three hours. This consists of a water tank and a hose that are connected to a specialist device. The hose enters your sewer pipes and forces high-pressure water through them to clear the pipes of garbage and debris.

    After the dirt, debris, roots, hair, oil, and other waste have been thoroughly flushed out of the system, the process of pumping water through the drains (at a rate of about 20 gallons per minute) takes about an hour to complete. Within that hour, the technician performs a final sewer camera inspection. This is carried out to guarantee that your sewer lines are thoroughly cleaned and that all obstructions are removed with care.

    When Should You Call a Plumber for a Blocked Drain?

    The severity of a plumbing blockage is influenced by a variety of factors. Your knowledge of a developing blockage could quickly direct a Sydney plumber from Quintessential Plumbing to its root cause.

    Where is it?
    The location of the clog in your plumbing is one of the most crucial factors.

    Do waters flow?
    You might be able to clear the clog on your own if the pipes are still draining. But it’s usually safer for a licensed plumber to take a look if a fixture or appliance is completely stopped.

    Why did the clog start?
    Some chemicals may affect your plumbing more severely. Although unpleasant, simple organic waste like coffee or hair is usually simple to flush out on your own. Sewage is one example of a material that can be very complicated (and maybe even risky). These blockages require additional measures and a professional’s expertise to clear.

    What Areas Do You Service?

    We Service All Of Sydney. Our dedicated team of highly experienced Blocked Drain Repairs plumbers will look after your property with the utmost care, ensuring your property is maintained to the highest standard at all times.

    Does Supermarket Drain Cleaner Work?

     Even though store-bought drain cleaners may be cheaper than hiring a plumber, many customers say they don’t work. In fact, some reviews say that the problem got worse after the chemicals were used to clean the drains. Consumers end up paying more because they still have to call a plumber to unclog the drain or toilet.

    How Do I Prevent My Drains From Blocking Again?

    Once a week, clean your drains. Pull the pop-up stopper out of your bathroom sink, clean out the drain, and give the stopper a quick rinse before putting it back in.

    Be cautious with what you flush down the toilet in your Sydney home. When we wash our dishes, we frequently unintentionally flush little food particles down the drain. We still have the option to dispose of the remains in the garbage before washing, even though it is impossible to simply let water flow through the drains. Additionally, some people have a propensity of flushing items like condoms, sanitary napkins, and toilet paper down the toilet. It’s not intended for your toilet to serve as a waste basket. This should be avoided since they can build up inside your sewer lines and cause blockages.

    Who Is Responsible for Clearing Blocked Drains?

    When used water that usually flows down sinks, toilets, and drains starts seeping from a pipe, drainage problems may occur. People can get very sick if exposed to raw sewage as it contains harmful bacteria.

    Water pipes that are linked to a property, including those that are shared with neighbors, are the responsibility of the property owner. No matter where the pipes are situated on the land, this applies. Even though disagreements can occasionally arise, we encourage neighbors to split the cost of repairs when pipes experience drainage issues.

    Sydney Water is in charge of maintaining the main sewers. Sydney Water can provide copies of drainage designs so you can see who uses specific pipe network segments.

    If you detect sewage flowing through a utility hole cover on the sidewalk or the road, you should call Sydney Water right away.

    What to Do if You Have a Blocked Drain?

    We recommend that you check to see if the clog is in any of the pipes that are located within your Sydney property. If water does not appear to be draining properly from your kitchen sink, bathtub, or shower, you can try the following solutions:

    – Put the plugin, then allow the water in your sink or bath to get hot, and then remove the plug. Use a drain plunger
    – After that, pour in the baking powder and vinegar mixture, followed by the boiling water.
    – Make use of a coat hanger without any bends in it or a drain snake.
    – Turn off the screw that secures the U-bend, and manually clear any obstructions you find.

    How Do I Keep My Drains Unblocked and Prevent Blockage?

    Being mindful of what goes down your kitchen sink and toilet is the best practice to ensure you don’t get a blockage again.

    4 Tips for blocked drain prevention:

    1. Only 3 P’s (Pee, Poo & Toilet Paper)
    2. Avoid Disposing of Cooking Grease in the Kitchen Sink.
    3. Never Flush Non-Toilet Paper Products.
    4. Have Regular Pipe Inspections
