Blocked Drains Battle – Drain Snake vs High Pressure Water Jetter
For years the industry standard for fixing a blocked drain was the drain snake (also known as the electric eel or plumber snake) these devices work by travelling down the pipes and flailing its abrasive cutting tip until it destroys the blocked drain (often damaging pipes in the process). Many plumbers are still using this method today, however there is a much safer more pipe friendly method available in High Pressure Water Jetters.
Tree Root Infiltration
Usually it is not until too late that homeowners notice the damage caused by the infiltration of tree roots on their sewer lines and underground drain pipes.
Blocked Sewer Drain
Any sewer blockage can be considered an emergency and should be dealt with promptly to avoid any nasty surprises, overflows or health contamination scares. With a blocked sewer there is the possibility that the flow of water and contaminants has no place to go and may come back up into the household plumbing. It is important that you avoid using any household plumbing until the offending sewer blockage is cleared.
Blocked Stormwater Drain
Often it is always when the storm hits that you realise that your stormwater drainage system is blocked. If you have noticed there is a blockage in your stormwater piping from previous heavy rains then now is the time to act. Don’t wait until it is too late and water overflow causes greater issues, like the breakage of guttering or even worse – the flow of water into your roof cavity. This will result in many thousands of dollars to repair damaged plaster work and will also encourage future termite activity and even mould spores to develop.
The kitchen by design has many areas that can have issues with blockages, obviously the kitchen sink is the one that springs to mind, but blockages can also occur within the dishwasher piping and even the water connection to supply water to the refrigerator for water and ice generation.
Blocked Shower Drain
Often blockages in the shower result from scum build up from excessive soap and cleaning products though generally it is hair that is the main culprit. The hair gets matted and builds up over time creating a hardened surface on the lining and bends of the drainage pipes. Eventually more and more hair gets trapped until the drainage hole closes not allowing water to drain quickly and freely.
