Question 1: Has the recent burst of wet, stormy weather uncovered many plumbing problems?
Answer: For sure. Here is one we recently fixed with water from overflowing gutters, potentially damaging walls and ceilings. The job required clearing the blockage of roots and debris, plus replacing a section of badly broken pipe. Also, homes more than a few decades old often have these drainage problems with their fragile earthenware sewer pipes.
Q2: Is there a quick-fix for this?
A: Blockages are caused by anything from a ball of hair forming in the shower traps to tree roots invading cracks in old earthenware drains and sewer pipes. During Winter and Spring, Adelaide‘s clay soil reacts to changes in moisture – causing soil to expand & contract, resulting in damaged drains and pipes. Some householders try a quick DIY fix but their attempts to clear a blocked drain often end in expensive repairs.
Q3: What do you do?
A: Our fully qualified, Master Plumbers only use quality pipe clearing treatments and mechanical drain cleaners to quickly identify the problem areas and clear any blockages. We never just fix the symptoms; we assess the overall situation.
Q4: So there are a few options?
A: Our non-invasive drain & trap cleaners start from $165 supplied & applied. Larger blockages require a mechanical drain cleaner, call for advice.
