Signs of a Blocked Drain
Diagnosing a blocked drain is not always black or white. When pipes are hidden within walls or under floors, garden beds and concrete, there’s a lot which 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.
For example, you may notice:
- Your drains and sinks are slow to drain
- 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 blocked toilet 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 licensed plumber if you suspect anything is wrong. Blocked drains can be caused by a number of issues and often a serious clear out is required.
Some of the causes can include tree root infestation, damaged or broken pipework, shifting soil or a nasty clog caused by toilet paper or other solid matter. Even your garden waste or kid’s toys can be blamed.
With the help of a CCTV camera and advanced equipment such as the high pressure hydro jet, Jim’s Plumbing can easily clear a blocked drain. From stormwater drains to sewer pipes, we have the right tools for the job at hand.
How to Clear a Blocked Drain
Jim’s Plumbing 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. Meanwhile, for the simpler of tasks our specialist drain clearers can also employ the electric eel for fast and efficient removal of 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 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 and tree-proof barrier.
It’s a highly recommended solution to extending the lifespan of your pipes.
And if it comes to serious problems with collapsed drains or broken pipes, Jim’s Plumbing also provides drainage excavation and pipe replacement. This tactic is only used for blockages which cannot be removed or pipes that cannot be relined.
So no matter the problem, we have a solution for everything. If you suspect a blocked drain at home, contact us now to book in a visit from one of our specialist drain plumbers.
