Blocked Drains

At Sydney 24 Hour Plumbing our vehicles are equipped with high pressure state of the art water jetters along with CCTV cameras and full colour monitors. In the event that you have a blocked drain, blocked sewer or blocked toilet we’ll first inspect the issue to determine the cause of the blockage. A plunger or high performance drain cleaning equipment may be all that’s required to assist with basic grease and hair matter to send it down the drain.

However for more stubborn blockages, a high pressure water jetter may be required. This does exactly what it sounds like. Extremely high pressure water blasts through the drain to push the matter causing the blockage through.

In the event that this is unsuccessful or we find that the blockage may not be cleared correctly we’ll go further and investigate using a CCTV camera and monitor. This allows us to view the camera within the piping itself and investigate further. Once the blockage is correctly identified, we can then use whatever equipment is required in order to ensure the blockage is cleared.

We use the latest in drain clearing technology

Using the latest in CCTV technology, we are able to get a complete picture of your entire drainage system, focusing in with precision on any areas for concern. In the past, plumbers were only really able to guess at likely causes of blockages and leaks, and had to undertake expensive and time consuming excavations to locate and deal with the issue. Sometimes if there are widespread issues with a drain – for example, if they are old, leaking, broken or misaligned – it can be cheaper to replace the entire drainage system rather than provide temporary repairs.

Some of the equipment our plumbers use –

  • Hydro Jetters – These are an effective tool to clean and remove challenging blockages, such as grease, food, fatty deposits and even solid foreign materials
  • CCTV Drain Cameras – Clear onscreen imagery allows us to quickly identify and diagnose blockages, so that we can perform corrective work without having to dig or disrupt the surrounding environment
  • Drain Snakes – Drain snakes or “electric eels” are very effective in clearing blockages by cutting through drain obstructions including garden waste, tree roots and other foreign objects that cause blockages over time

Using this equipment we can detect, identify and repair drain blockages without having to dig, which saves you time and money.

We can assist with insurance work

Photos and footage can be captured along the way for use with insurance, rental tenants owners or council claims. These can be provided to the client for this and other purposes. In the event that we detect an abnormality in the pipe this can be investigated to determine the appropriate course of action. Various rectification options may be provided such as a periodic jet & camera, an excavation of the affected area with repair to the damaged pipe or junction etc. A report can also be produced for the relevant party such as Sydney Water, a landlord, your local council or your insurer.

When determining the appropriate repair work, your plumber will discuss the pros and cons of each option along with a detailed discussion on costs, timeframes & warranties. A plan of action will be made directly in conjunction with you & a quote will be produced detailing the works to commence. 24 Hour Plumbing will then commence work at the discussed timeframe.

Here at Sydney 24 Hour Plumbing we go a step further than the rest. When we clear a blockage we provide a report with photos that can be forwarded to your local council or insurer (advised by your plumber). In many cases this will result in major savings for you.
