Contrary to popular belief, pipes and drains are not all the same, and each particular pipe is specially designed for its purpose – either to remove waste water, trade waste or sewerage, or to bring fresh potable water into the home of business, with others designed to provide gas supplies to appliances, heating and hot water units. Pipes are not glamorous, however without a well-designed and smoothly running pipe and drain system, our properties would be almost impossible to live in.
At the first sign of trouble with your pipes, call us in. Getting professional help before an issue turns into a larger one can save you time, money and stress in the future.
Sydney’s blocked and broken pipe specialists
Unless there’s a noticeable leak or an overflowing drain, you may not even know if there’s a problem with your pipes. We recommend having regular inspections done of your drains and pipework around your property, especially if it is located in or around mature trees or if they are over 10 years old. Depending on the material they’re made out of, pipes can last for decades, with vitreous clay and PVC plastic being the most common pipework you might find.
Our pipe and drain services in Sydney cover the following:
- CCTV inspections
- Unblocking and unclogging pipes and drains
- Diagnosis of damaged or broken pipes, or those affected by tree roots
- Diagnosis and treatment for water hammer
- New pipes and drains for bathroom, kitchen and laundry renovations, or relocation of old ones
- Installation of pipework for new builds
We also offer 24 hour emergency plumbing support for all issues relating to drains and pipes. Generally issues with pipes and drains can occur at any time, but extreme weather events such as torrential rain, storms and hail can damage pipework and cause drains to become full and overflow. In these cases, getting emergency assistance is vital, and you need someone who will be able to attend your property, no matter the time of day or night.
CCTV drain inspections
You’ve probably heard of a CCTV inspection, and it is a convenient way for plumbers to be able to see into the network of pipes and drains that crisscross your property, without having to undertake the time consuming job of excavating them.
Essentially a CCTV camera is used to investigate the interior and surface of a wide range of pipes and drains, including waste water, trade waste drains and traps, stormwater and sewerage pipes. With a skilled and well trained operator, the CCTV camera should be able to find the issue quickly and effectively, and thanks to the real time monitors, a diagnosis should be able to be provided on the spot. The reasons that a plumber might need to use CCTV inspection technology on your property can vary.
Blockages and clogging
If you’ve noticed that you’re having issues with your drains in terms of water overflowing or not draining quickly enough, you may well have a blockage somewhere in the system. Many things can contribute to blockages and clogging within pipes and drains, and some of the most common include human and pet hair, grease and organic material build up in residential and commercial kitchen drains. Surprising foreign objects such as toys and building materials can also sometimes be found with a CCTV inspection. Tree roots can be the most problematic cause of blockages, and they can be tricky to locate and remove. Some trees have particularly invasive roots, that will find any opening in pipe joints looking for a source of water, and grow rapidly for years until the entire pipe is filled. If the pipe is a waste water or stormwater pipe, it’s likely that you’ll notice a gradual deterioration over time of the flow of water. However sometimes you may not know you have a problem with tree roots until the pipe cracks or becomes completely blocked one day. In these cases you should call in a plumber as soon as possible.
If you find that there’s a persistent bad smell coming from any of the drains in your property, you should call us in. Your drains and pipes should not smell, and it may be an indication of rotting material or pools of water that’s trapped in the system which can lead to clogs and blockages in the future. Anything that is left to sit for days or months in your pipework can also actually damage the plastic sub surface. Using a CCTV camera, we’ll be able to investigate the drain, find and clear the source of the issue.
Most of us just assume that the pipework within our properties are properly fitted and should work as intended. Unfortunately over time however, pipes can become misaligned, with gaps appearing in pipe joints or cracks appearing. This can occur especially in older properties where there have been multiple changes to the drainage systems, or if pipes have been introduced into the system without being fitted by a professional. The land can move over decades as well, placing strain on the joints of pipes. If the misaligned pipes are not easily visible or accessible, a CCTV camera can be the best method for finding them, and then the affected piece can be removed and replaced with new pipes.
