Blocked Drain Services Sydney

Time for a serious question...

Does your Sydney based plumber ever offer you a permanent solution for your blocked drain? In many cases the answer is no. This is because of 2 reasons:

1. They enjoy having you as a regular ongoing customer which guarantees them water jetting your blocked stormwater or sewer drain for $300+ every year.
2. Or they don’t have the equipment or team to offer a permanent solution which is Inversion Pipe Relining.

Why are my pipes blocked?

95% of the time when you have a blocked toilet the problem is not actually within the toilet, it is generally further down the pipeline. In most cases there will be a crack or breakage in the pipes below the ground where tree roots are growing into. This is a continuous supply of water and nutrients for the trees so the roots will continue to grow longer and thicker into the sewer or stormwater drains and will eventually cause a blockage. Each time this problem is fixed by a blocked drain plumber with a water jetter or electric eel the roots will grow back faster and thicker, just like if you cut a branch off a plant, generally 2 will grow back. This is why we always offer our customers a permanent solution plan if the pipes have tree root intrusion, as they will 100% be back to clog your pipes again.

How will we fix your blocked drain in Sydney?

Blocked Sewer

INSPECT

Inspect the property and find or create an access point upstream of the blocked sewer pipe.

02

High Pressure

Send a high pressure water jetter down the sewer pipe with a small bullet head to punch a hole through the blockages which will release the water.

03

Camera

Camera the line to clearly see where all the blockages are

Cut away

Send the TURBO head down the line and work our magic to cut away all of the tree roots. We will thoroughly work each point that was marked as blocked on our camera.

Most Frequent Questions

Toilet, kitchen sink, shower, and other plumbing fixtures in the house are all connected to a drain. A blocked drain is a common problem that every household encounters from time to time that occurs when food waste, debris, dust, dirt, foreign objects, root intrusions, and other elements flushed down the drain start to form buildups and eventually clogged the drains. Obstructed and damaged drains can cause sewer pipes to overflow which can lead to potential health issues due to swarming bacteria and harmful substances in the waste. Blocked drain when not taken action right away can cause more damage to your plumbing system than expected. Water seeping out the sewer pipe into your gardens, overflowing sinks, toilet backing up, and shower not draining are visible signs that indicate a call to the plumbing expert is urgently needed.

A blocked drain is a bummer. It can be expensive as well as time-consuming. Therefore, it’s always good not to remain clueless in what you need to look out for to better guard yourself against it. A blocked drain can be caused by grease and fats on food waste, soap scum, falling hair, foreign items, leaves, and other outdoor debris, and root intrusions. While numerous items can get lodged in your drain pipes, these are the common causes based on our experience. Generally, this means, anything that is not capable of breaking down into pieces can form a buildup and block your drain.

Humans need regular medical check-ups and require a great ability to be vigilant in daily activities to ensure a healthy body. Same with the plumbing system; regular maintenance significantly contributes to a consistently working drain hence, it’s essential to be mindful of your daily activities that involve using your plumbing fixtures. It includes being cautious in what you flush down the drain, whether, in your shower, kitchen sink, or in your toilet – things that are not meant to reach the drainpipe must be dumped into the rubbish.

The best way to keep yourself from having to deal with any plumbing issue is to prevent them from happening in the first place. Using a drain trap and food waste disposal is just one way to do it, but if you’re already faced with this trouble, you have no choice but to urgently take action yourself if it only requires a simple fix and will not cause more issues. If you despise doing messy stuff and you’re worried you might create more trouble down the line because you’re no pro, a call to Revolution Pipe Relining is just what all it takes to resolve the issue before it gets worse.

Achieving a good result always boils down to the way an issue was dealt with. Oftentimes, people resort to a quick and easy fix, with or without knowledge that it can pose a consequential problem or severe damage to the sewer line. Chemicals need to sit on the toilet or down the line for an hour or more before it can finally break down any buildups. These chemicals are not just harmful to health, it also produces increased temperature as it goes through the process which can be to strong for your porcelain toilets and plastic pipes to withstand, causing your toilet to crack and your plastic pipes to soften and possibly create wrinkles. If you’re better off not dealing with this problem over and over your whole life, it’s best to leave to the experts. They know better, and they have the most suitable solution to any drain problem.

No matter how at all cost, you refrained from flushing anything down the drain that can create plumbing problems within and outside your property, there are just specks of dirt, dust, debris, and other elements that can sneak into your drain that can result in a blocked drain over time if they pile up against a tree root blockage or broken pipe. Clearing these clogs is not that complicated if it’s visible, but if it has already made its way down the drains, then you’re doomed if you can’t get it cleared out.

The fastest and most common way to clear a blocked drain is to call Prvolution Pipe Relining and have it properly cleared with a high pressure water jetter. If there is an existing tree root problem with the drain then this will be your best option.

 

If you are more the DIY enthusiast, then you can try chemicals, plungers, plumber’s snake, and the always readily available in every household baking soda mixture poured down the drain can eliminate simple clogs. With great plunging skills and a durable plunger, you can effectively unclog your drain without having a splash on you. Plumber’s snake is another effective tool and it can be your best chance to clear blockages too stubborn for your plunger. Mixtures of baking soda and vinegar, or baking soda and lemon, poured with boiling water produce an effective result. The baking soda mixture and hot water treatment form an explosive foamy chemical reaction that will loosen up any clingy sludge that’s stubbornly clinging at the bottom of your drain. Chemicals, on the other hand, is the most favoured clog remover in the household because it offers a non-messy, fast and easy result.

Now that you’re overloaded with a lot of handy information about a blocked drain, it’s best to have an idea on the next step you should undertake when the problem is too difficult for you to deal with yourself.  Although we are called Revolution Pipe Relining, we also specialise in Blocked Drains. Most pipe relining jobs come from a blocked drain problem, so we have a team dedicated to clearing drain day in, day out. We charge a fair price and do the job properly using a drain camera to check all the tree roots have been removed, most plumbing companies don’t use a camera and just hope for the best!

The number 1 tip I can give you is if it sounds too good to be true then it is. If you see advertisements for blocked drain clearing for $49-$99, I can guarantee you will end up paying close to 10x these prices. To have you drain cleared properly the price should be in the range of $300-$400 for the first hour.
