When To Hire Professional Plumbers For Drain Cleaning

drain cleaning

Drain blockage problems are universal, and most people experience them some time or the other. The kitchen and bathrooms are the most impacted areas, and you find the drains clogging in turns, and there are numerous reasons for these blockages. Regular maintenance is the most effective way to remove the clogs and ensure unhindered water flow.

We at SPS Plumbers Hills District, offer excellent drain cleaning services to our residential and commercial property clients.

Signs Of Drain Problems

  • Water collects in the sink, and its drains slowly
  • Toilets do not flush clean.
  • Gurgling sound in drains after flushing the toilet.
  • Foul from the drains.
  • Wastewater overflow from the pipes

Why Do Drains Develop Clogs?

While the above descriptions are only the symptoms of drain blockages, the causes are many such as:

  • Fat and grease– The routine of running hot water in the sink does not melt the grease and fat and flush it through the drain. Instead, it becomes solid as soon as it cools and forms into a block.
  • Food particles– Residues of food that fall into the sinks while cooking and cleaning the utensils are the main culprits for drain blockages. These food particles accumulate in the pipeline because they do not break down. Naturally, the water flow slows down.
  • Other Objects – We routinely discard objects like tissues, wet wipes, sanitary products etc. in the toilet, thinking that they will pass through the pipes. But these items get stuck in the pipes, and the water flow slows down.
  • Hair – Hair that falls in the bathroom drains while bathing accumulates in the pipes, becoming a catch-all for more debris, and forms a severe clog.  It is necessary to use filters to stop hair from entering the drains.

Why Is Professional Drain Cleaning Necessary?

CCTV drain cameras, high-pressure power jets, and various other equipment and tools are the modern technologies used to detect drain blockages and clean clogged pipes. Professional Sydney plumbers have expertise in handling these technologies to identify the cause and fix the problem correctly. Make sure to call a licensed plumber to deal with your drain blockage problem.

Sewer problems can have a significant impact on the plumbing system of your property and can result in flooding and sewer backups. At SPS Plumbers Hills District, we provide clients with excellent sewer inspection and replacement services. Our team of skilled Sydney plumbers utilise the most advanced tools and latest technology to handle the inspections and repairs.

Damaged Sewer Pipe – The Signs

To ensure that you don’t suffer severe damage, addressing sewer related issues is crucial. You can face issues like backups and floods if you don’t take the necessary steps to fix sewage problems. Besides, complex issues can be both time-consuming and expensive, and its best to call expert plumbers as soon as you notice something the signs. Here are a few things that you should look out for:

  • Mould infestation
  • Sewer backups and blockages
  • Indentations in your lawn or under the pavers
  • Slow drainage
  • Sewer gas odour permeating throughout the house
  • Lush green patches of grass in areas of the backyard

These are only a few of the signs that indicate you have a damaged sewer pipe. Contact your local plumber if you notice any of these.

Sewage Systems Inspection

Sewage pipes are located in the ground, which makes it incredibly difficult to determine the extent of the damage. Here’s how licensed professionals inspect the system:

  • The technicians will first insert a drain snake equipped with a small camera at the top.
  • They will then examine the video feed from the drain snake on a small unit.
  • They will then look for signs of damage in your drain pipe.

After completing the evaluation, the technicians will provide you with a detailed report on the amount of damage and will offer you solutions. They will advise you to carry out the absolutely necessary repairs. The entire situation will be explained to you in detail; this ensures you can make an informed decision.

Sewer Replacement – The Types

There are several types of sewer replacement options available in the market. Based on the condition of your sewer system, the technicians will advise you on the type of replacement option you should go for. Here’s a look at your options:

  • Traditional Sewer Replacement – While carrying out this type of repair, the technician will excavate the earth right above the damaged area. This gives better access to the damaged portion of the pipe, and in turn, helps with carrying out much more effective repairs. However, this traditional method of sewer replacement is slightly more expensive, invasive, and time-consuming as well.
  • Trenchless Sewer Replacement – A relatively less amount of excavation is required while carrying out trenchless sewer replacement. The plumbers will dig up small trenches on either side of the pipe to insert the epoxy liner, which will help fix the damage in the pipe.

We at SPS offer the best sewer repair and replacement solutions. To ensure that you have complete knowledge of what’s involved, our technicians will explain the sewer replacement process to you in detail. Furthermore, they will explain the advantages and disadvantages of the procedure as well. This will help you make a well-informed decision based on facts.
