Well, we have the specialists for the area!
Whether it’s a minor decrease in flow or a complete blockage, a blocked drain can be a big inconvenience to any homeowner or building manager in Alexandra Hills and beyond.
The most common early warning signs of a blocked drain are when water drains slowly in the sinks and shower.
It’s not uncommon for water levels in the toilet to rise or even overflow when flushing. You may also notice a foul smell coming from the drains since the water is unable to flow freely and may become stagnant.
Well, drain blockages come in many forms and can occur in different areas of your plumbing. You may want to try fixing the problem yourself and this is easy enough if the blockage occurs at the top of the drain where it is visible and within reach! But sometimes, you need to call in the experts to find the root cause of the blockage and to fix it properly.
Here are some issues that our blocked drain experts can fix in Alexandra Hills and beyond:
Blocked sink drains
Bathroom and kitchen sinks often get blocked with grease and fat build up, soap scum, hair and food scraps. To deal with this kind of blocked drain Alexandra Hills residents may be able to resolve the issue themselves by either physically clearing debris or by using a commercially available drain cleaner. If problems persist, it might be time to call in the experts.
Blocked Stormwater drains
Stormwater drain blockages often occur during or after heavy rains. Stormwater drains are designed to handle large volumes of water so it’s critical to keep them clean and cleared to prevent future flooding of your property. This can be a big job, so it can help to have someone on hand with the right tools for the job. All of our trucks are fully equipped to deal with any sort of blockage with a truck mounted high pressure jetter or an electric eel. For more serious blockages, our team can draw on other equipment to get the job done.
A toilet blockage always seems to strike at the worst possible time. While the issue can sometimes be resolved using a plunger, this is one unpleasant blocked drain Alexandra Hills residents may wish to leave to the experts!
The most common cause of blocked sewage pipes is tree roots. Though it is not so difficult to identify the issue, it can be a challenge to identify the exact location of the blockage. To successfully fix a blocked sewage pipe, our team use CCTV cameras to locate the obstruction and a range of specialised tools like an electric eel and high-pressure jetters to clear the roots. Before completing the work, we’ll re-line the pipe to repair damage caused by the roots and prevent blockages from tree roots recurring in future.
Some other blockage problems include blocked dishwater drains, blocked downpipes, clogged laundry sinks and waste drains.
So what is the best solution for a blocked drain Alexandra Hills residents can choose?
