    THE FRONT YARD HAS WATER POOLING IN IT. – Because the water is unable to proceed along the typical pathways, it will seek refuge in any available area. This is frequently caused by clogged drains, particularly in your sewer.

    Foreign Objects & Oils & Grease

    Your drainage system is only designed to handle specific liquids, such as urine and human waste. Any additional substance can clog drains, alter water flow, and cause other problems.

    Everyday goods can be flushed down the toilet by accident. Rings, jewellery, and even toothbrushes are all common offenders. Drainage can also be harmed by improper disposal of personal hygiene products. Consider the following items: dental floss, baby wipes, toilet paper, diapers, tampons, tissues, and cotton balls. Properly dispose of them.

    Food that is washed down the sink might become trapped anywhere in the pipes, clogging drains. Pouring oily or thick items can lead to a build-up that acts as a barrier, preventing the water from flowing freely.

    Tree Roots & Defective Plumbing

    Underground pipes are damp, providing the ideal habitat for tree roots to thrive. Even the tiniest cracks in your pipeline can allow roots to adhere and spread. The tree attempting to break through will put strain on your pipelines, causing them to burst. Leakage and clogged drains will result as a result of this.

    A defective plumbing system could also cause clogged drains. It is possible to make mistakes when installing plumbing equipment. Pipes can sometimes burst or develop fractures, causing damage to your home. So, if your drains are clogged, even if they were recently installed, it could be due to faulty plumbing.

    How much does it cost to unblock a Sydney drain?

    To begin with, whatever you do, don’t fall for the $49 drain cleared gimmicks..A clogged drain can be a source of concern for Sydney residents. Questions pop into my head right away.

    • Is this really a problem?
    • Is it possible to fix it?
    • How much will this cost you at least?
    • Is this going to cost a lot of money?

    The majority of homeowners will choose a less expensive “do-it-yourself” option. They’re frequently seen in Bunnings or the local supermarket, carting Drain-O and other drain cleaning products.

    The majority of these items are nothing more than gimmicks that will only waste your money. Many of these store-bought drain cleaners are acid-based, which can cause corrosion to metal components in your drain system, resulting in further issues.

    It’s difficult to put a fixed price on clearing blocked drains in Sydney because there are so many factors that influence the cost. Blocked drains in Sydney can occur for a variety of reasons, and the best solution is dependent entirely on the cause.

    A simple blockage caused by organic debris, such as food scraps in the kitchen sink, can, for example, be quickly and inexpensively repaired. A blockage in your sewer pipes caused by a solid mass of wet wipes and grease, on the other hand, will be more difficult and costly to clear.

    My advice is to call an experienced and licenced plumber to take care of it; as a Sydney plumber, we offer a $0* callout and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

    What do plumbers use to unblock drains in Sydney?

    Drain rods, high-pressure jet blaster machines, and electric eels are some of the tools we have at our disposal in managing a Sydney blocked drain, as each job and situation is unique. We use CCTV cameras and pipe locating equipment to identify the cause of the blockage once the drain has been cleared.

    Clogged drains in the inner west Sydney and eastern suburbs are typically caused by loose and undermined pipework. Although we are fortunate to live in such beautiful areas, the majority of the pipework is original Earthenware pipe (clay pipes), which are prone to cracking and dislodgement. As a result, each blockage is treated differently, and the tools required for each job differ.

    Does boiling water unblock drains?

    If your drain is clogged with ice cubes — then yes, boiling water can unclog a drain. But if your drain is clogged with the things that normally clog drains — grease, oil, dirt, hair, etc. — then no, boiling water isn’t likely to help.

    Why does my drain keep blocking ?

    Blocked drains are often caused by sanitary products, paper towels or other hard to flush materials that can clog pipes and obstruct a drainage system. Your main sewer line could be clogged if there is a lot of sewage backup every time you flush or empty your sink.

    If you drains continue be be blocked it may require further inspection due to cracked or damage pipes and require replacement or relining.

    Who is responsible for blocked drains?

    A sewer clog in private wastewater lines is the homeowner’s responsibility. Also, they must pay for the repair by a professional plumber. Sydney Water is responsible for sewer chokes found in public wastewater pipes.

    How long does it take to unclog a drain?

    Over the last ten years, we’ve dealt with just about every type of blocked drain in homes, businesses, offices, and factories. Blocked drains are commonly associated with toilets, but we see them in a variety of other places. These include clogged kitchen sinks, clogged bathroom sinks, clogged shower drains and bath drains, clogged toilets, and clogged gutters.

    Unblocking a blocked drain is a case-by-case situation; some blocked drains can be unblocked in as little as a few minutes. Drain rods, high-pressure jet blaster machines, and electric eels are among the tools at our disposal. It would also take a little longer in some cases to clear the drains. It can range from a simple clogged drain to a more advanced underground sewer pipe blockage.

    This will be determined by inspecting the main source of the problem and its location with a CCTV drain camera.

    Can I get a copy of the CCTV footage?

    Drain rods are frequently used by our highly trained plumbers to clear a common blocked toilet, basin, or shower. Our state-of-the-art high-pressure jetting system, which operates at 5000KPA and can cut through tree roots and other debris, may be used to clear more complicated blockages. As a result, this is the most common method we use to deal with blocked drains in Sydney, and it is also our most effective tool for all blocked drain repairs.

    We can use closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage to identify the cause of the blockage once the blocked drain has been cleared. We can also pinpoint the exact location of the blockage above ground, as well as the depth and direction of flow, using our cutting-edge locating equipment. This ensures that only a specific area will be excavated if necessary. At no extra charge, we provide a DVD copy of the footage as well as a full report.

    Do you offer preventative maintenance plans?

    Our plumbers will explain the underlying problem and schedule future serviced maintenance at a discounted rate once the job is completed. You will be eligible for discounts and free advice at any time if you have a scheduled maintenance plan.

    Our Quintessential Plumbing Sydney plumbers will inspect all faucets and fixtures, water pressure, any leaks, gutters, and irrigation, blocked drains, tap pressure, and hot water systems during a plumbing maintenance appointment.
