Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I have a blocked drain
There are a number of indications that will allow you to be certain that you have a blockage:
Sewer Drains: It is quite common for your sewer drain to become blocked by paper waste from your toilet, food through your kitchen sink and materials from your washing machine.
Some of the symptoms of a blockage include:
- Water rising when the toilet is flushed
- Discharge when flushing
- The sink and shower are slow draining
It is vital to rectify the problem as soon as possible to ensure no water damage is caused to your home or business.
Main Causes of Blocked Drains
From our own experience, we have found that the majority of blocked drains that we service are caused by tree roots. The drain becomes blocked as once a crack has formed in the drain, the root of the tree will enter the drain to get the nutrients from it.
Other common caused of drain blockages included:
- Foreign materials or waste within the drain which could include rocks, paper, etc.
- Slopes within the drainage system lead to heavier materials being unable to flow correctly through the drainage system
- Inappropriate materials being flushed down toilets or have come through a sink
Why does my drain keep re-blocking
There is normally a much larger problem with your drain if there is a recurring blockage. If you have received professional blockage services from a plumber and the blockage continues to persist, a camera inspection would be the next step to finding the solution. The camera will allow you to find exactly what is causing the drain to keep blocking. Once the problem has been found a drain unblocking solution can then be applied.
Can I clear a blocked drain myself?
There are times when the blockage is a simple one and the solution can be to use a plunger. The plunger will push any food wastage or build-up of hair down the drain. However if the blockage continues after using the plunger we would recommend calling a professional to examine the blocked drain.
Does the Jet flusher cause any damage to drains
No. The Jet Flusher technology allows for the removal of all blockages without causing any harm to the drain itself.
