This way, we know the problem before any serious work begins. Our experienced team can work out a tailor-made solution for your problem with proper preparation. We can then give you an upfront, fixed-price quote.

What are the Signs of a Drain Blockage?

Diagnosing a blocked drain is not always easy. When pipes are hidden within walls or under floors, garden beds and concrete, there’s a lot that can go unnoticed.

While some plumbing problems like burst pipes or dripping taps are obvious, there are a few subtle things to consider when it comes to blocked drains.

Some of the most common signs of a blocked drain you may notice include:

  • Your shower or kitchen sink has become uncharacteristically slow draining
  • There is an unpleasant odour coming from your drains
  • Gurgling sounds in the pipes
  • The sound of water running when there are no taps on
  • A significant drop in water pressure
  • The toilet has become blocked, or the water levels in the toilet have changed
  • Water pooling around the property, especially near stormwater drains and gutters

We highly recommend calling a fully licensed plumber if you suspect something is wrong. Blocked drains can be caused by a number of issues and a professional opinion is often needed.

Common Causes of Clogged Drains

There are numerous potential reasons why you might find your drain pipes have become blocked.

Tree Root Infestation

Infestation by tree roots is a particularly common cause, especially for sewer blockages. Tree roots have a natural tendency to seek out moisture, and water in the sewer line or in underground pipes is a source waiting to be tapped into. Unfortunately, these roots effectively break into the pipes and continue growing. A broken pipe is likely to result in a blockage as the water flow gets obstructed.

Excess Toilet Paper

Too much toilet paper or other foreign objects such as children’s toys and being flushed down the toilet is also likely to block drains. It can potentially cause an obstruction that results in the toilet being unable to flush properly. A DIY drain snake may solve the issue, but you may require more advanced drain cleaning technology if the blockage is particularly stubborn.

Everything But The Kitchen Sink Down The Kitchen Sink

Disposing of food scraps and cooking oil down the kitchen sink can also clog drains. Hot oil cools and sets in the pipes causing an obstruction that can be hard to break up with simple DIY remedies like baking soda and vinegar.

Incorrect disposal of food waste is also a common cause of blocked sinks. Scraping food scraps down the sink, rather than into the bin, can cause them to accumulate and expand in the pipes. Starchy foods like potatoes, rice and pasta can also stick to the inner walls of the pipes, restricting the flow of water.

Luckily, Plumber Near Me has the necessary technology to clear a blocked drain with maximum ease and minimal fuss.

How to Clear a Blocked Drain

Plumber Near Me is fast and efficient when it comes to clearing blocked drains. One of our preferred solutions is the hydro jet drain cleaner.

Using high-pressure water jets, the hydro jet literally rips the blockage apart. Think of it like blades of water slicing and dicing through the toughest of tree roots. For simpler tasks, our specialist drain clearers can also employ the electric eel to efficiently remove any foreign matter.

Sometimes, more work is required. If tree roots have forced their way into a pipe, it needs to be sealed up. This is where pipe relining comes in.

Pipe Relining and Excavation

Pipe relining is a non-invasive way to reseal damaged drains that have maintained their structural integrity. A brand-new layer of tough lining is added to the inside of the drain, providing a watertight, tree-proof barrier. It’s a highly recommended solution to help extend the longevity of your pipes.

And if it comes to serious problems with collapsed drains or broken pipes, Plumber Near Me also provides drainage excavation and pipe replacement. This solution is only used for blockages that can’t be removed or pipes that can’t be relined.

We have a solution for all blocked drain problems. Contact us now to book a visit from one of our specialist drain plumbers.
