Causes

The most common reason for our plumbing call outs in Canberra and surrounding areas is to clear a blocked drain. Blocked drains in Canberra are often the result of

  • Tree root obstruction in the pipes or even a collapse in the pipe itself. The result is often a distasteful odour, overflow of water or waste and possibly an Occupational Health and Safety hazard.
  • Outdoor drains are also commonly blocked by a build up of dead leaves
  • Indoor blockages are frequently caused by foreign objects or materials other than toilet paper being flushed down the drain
  • An excessive build up of hair which has escaped through the floor waste
  • Blocked Drains in the kitchen are often caused by a build up of food waste, grease and other debris which has washed down the drain
  • Overflowing drains resulting from heavy rainfall
  • Broken pipes due to general wear and tear or tree root obstruction

Equipment

A High Pressure Water Jetter is the most effective tool to clear your Canberra blocked drain. Boasting 31 horsepower and expelling 31 litres of water per minute, this machine is your best option when seeking to clear a blocked drain. The sheer velocity of the water penetrating through the nozzle is strong enough to cut through tree roots and clear

blockages. It is this High Pressure Water Jetter that has allowed us to successfully clear so many drains around Canberra and specialise in clearing Blocked Drains Canberra.

An Electric Eel is a powerful and professional, drain clearing tool that comprises flexible cables and rotating cutting tools. It clears blockages in sewer and storm water pipes by cutting through tree roots, grease, leaves and soil build-up. Whilst our preferred method is to use the water jetter, we do have an electric eel available if or when required.

A Hydro-Plunger will be used if the plumber thinks that he can clear the drain using the plunger first. This is often a quick and cost-effective method to clear a blocked toilet or kitchen sink.

Acid Treatment is often carried out following the clearing of a blocked drain by our Canberra plumber. Acid is effective in clearing any organic matter that is caught in the drain and acts as an effective chemical drain cleaner.

A Camera or Locater may be used to identify the cause of the blockage. These have proven effective tools when trying to locate the cause of a persistent blocked drain without the time and effort of a dig up. Locating the cause of the blockage allows our Blocked Drains plumber to take the most appropriate course of action to clear your blocked drain Canberra.
