Blocked Drains

Blocked drains fixed fast

As your local licensed plumbers, we’re experts at clearing blocked drains quickly and professionally. We can clear anything from blocked toilets, basins and showers to kitchen sinks. We can also help with pipes or grates outside, overflowing bad smelly stuff to stormwater drains, downpipes, channels and grates around the yard or driveway.

With decades of experience, we can cope with any blockages with a minimal disturbance or mess, cleaning up and sanitising the area if required.

How we clear blocked drains

By using either our conventional electric drain clearing machine or our purpose-built 5000 psi root cutting jet rodder, we give you the best chance of clearing your blocked sewer pipe or stormwater line quickly and efficiently.

Furthermore, we can offer the latest Ridgid brand CCTV drain camera to survey the drain and locate the problems with extreme accuracy. The CCTV drain camera marks the location and depth of each problem. From this information we can provide the following:

  • A full report of problems found with short- and long-term recommendations.
  • Costings to repair or replace.
  • Advice on how to best deal with the problem, i.e. replace, repair, realign or ongoing clearing schedule.
  • Videos, stills of problems and all history kept on file for future reference.

What causes blocked drains

There are multiple causes for blocked sewers. Some of the most common culprits include grease build-up, hair, drain collapses and soil movement.

However, the number one cause of blocked drains we see is tree root entry from broken or dislodged joints in old earthenware pipes. The ongoing drought conditions in Brisbane and surrounding areas is causing trees to actively find a water source and a defective drain discharging water is their number one source of water. If left ongoing without fixing, this will quickly escalate into a costly and inconvenient exercise to fix or overcome.
