Blocked Drain Sydney

Which Plumber to Call for a Blocked Drain in Sydney, Sydney CBD, Inner West, or Eastern Suburbs

Many plumbing companies offer services for all kinds of things and generally they are more than competent. But when you are faced with the prospect of finding a plumber to unblock your drains, it often pays to search for a company that specialises in that field.

When looking for a reputable company start by asking your friends if they have anybody they could recommend. If no luck, start checking the internet for plumbers that cover your area.

As mentioned before, drain cleaning is very much a specialised field and clearing a blocked drain in a domestic & commercial situations requires a plumber with equipment that can handle all kinds of blockages. Sophisticated high-pressure water jetting machines, when operated by an experienced drain cleaner can clear most blockages that occur. The vast majority of blocked drains are caused by the intrusion of tree roots within the sewer pipes. Now these tree roots, even after being removed grow back in time. The amount of time depends very much on the kind of tree roots and the competency of the water jet operator. The high-pressure water jet does a great job on cutting the roots away from the pipe, but the secret is to make sure that the roots have been removed from the pipe completely.

All drain clearing companies carry CCTV cameras, which give a clear picture of the condition of the pipes and many companies offer discount rates on camera inspections whilst on the job. Believe me, it's worth paying the extra money to inspect the pipes. It's important to ask the contractor to show you the condition of the pipe with the camera and ask them to re-jet and remove any stubborn tree roots if necessary. The camera will show all sorts of imperfections with most pipes having some form of damage from the roots, whether it be a bad joint, small cracks or in some instances collapsed or dropped sections.

The fees for clearing blocked drains can be quite expensive and whilst most companies charging on an hourly basis can seem cheap, drain clearances can sometimes take anywhere from half an hour to five or six hours for the most stubborn blockages. Make sure you choose a plumber in Sydney that not only has fixed pricing for clearances, but offer genuine warranty periods on their work.

As you can see, there are many reasons beyond blocked drains in Sydney, Sydney CBD, Inner West, or Eastern Suburbs that required a professional plumber. Make sure you are prepared when these plumbing problems hit you by having the name of a reputable plumber handy.
