A clean water supply, drainage system, and all other appliances that are connected to the water system need to work perfectly to ensure a continuous supply of water and disposal of waste. However, it’s not uncommon for drains to accumulate particulate or become infiltrated by tree roots and as a consequence, get blocked. The problem of a blocked drain in residential and commercial properties throughout Annerley is very common.
Drains get clogged when unwanted materials such as hair, debris, dust, and any small objects become trapped in the drainpipe. Another major cause of clogged drains is an accumulation of hardened grease or fats.
Below are some signs that may indicate an issue with your drain:
- If your shower, toilet or sinks are slow to drain, it typically indicates an issue with drains. A toilet is often the primary sign of a blockage. Check out if flushing the toilet causes water to rise. You may also notice that running another tap causes the water in the toilet to rise. Both are symptoms of a huge blockage in your drains.
- Overflow of water from sinks or toilets
- An unpleasant smell from the building’s laundry, kitchen, or bathroom is another indicator of a blockage.
- Gurgling noises from pipes and plug holes are other signs of a potential blockage.
How to unblock your blocked drain?
These days, the professionals make use of CCTV surveillance where a long and flexible cable with a camera is fitted at the end of the drain. This allows us to get video footage from inside the drain to determine the exact cause and location.
If the blockage is in the sink or a bathtub then you may be able to solve the issue yourself. Clear any visible objects and blockages which can be hair, tissue, paper, soap scum, and any other foreign object that may be contributing to the blockage. You may also try pouring hot water down the drain or using a commercially available drain clearer to remedy the issue. However, if the blockage is out of your reach or isn’t cleared using the techniques above, then it’s time to seek help from a professional.
Doing it yourself may seem a simple and inexpensive option to try but without the proper knowledge and tools, you may cause further damage. Thus, a Blocked drain Annerley specialist with many years of experience is what you need.
