We need water to survive. The water that we use for cooking, preparing food, or even cleaning the utensils, etc., should not have any contaminants in it. While the water that we receive from the City’s mains is of good quality, it still has some pollutants in it.

This means sensitive individuals can suffer from illnesses, reactions, and allergies if they consume this water. There is a simple way to make sure that the water you use in your home is safe for consumption. We at SPS Plumbers Hills District recommend to our clients that they should get water filters installed on their properties. When you start looking, you will find that are many different products.

It’s always great to have a wider choice when you are investing money in such a device. But it is a good idea to hire the services of experienced Sydney plumbers like the ones at our company. We can provide you with all the information you require about these filters. Our experts will explain how the system works and can also help you determine which one would work best for your property.

Water Filter Types

If you are considering getting a water filter installed in your home, here is some information that will come in handy:

  • An activated carbon filter cleans out silt and sediment as well as other large particles in the water. The filter is useful in absorbing different types of deposits, so you get clean water in the taps and faucets in your home.
  • An infrared water filter is effective in reducing the hardness of the water. A combination of heat and light is used to soften the water and make it safe for consumption.
  • Many homeowners also get water ionizers or alkaline water filters installed in the home. They function similar to infrared filters; however, the water that passes through these filters is channelled across plates which have an electrical charge. The water is separated into alkaline and acidic streams. The alkaline water is directed into various areas of your home.
  • UV water filters use UV rays to destroy the bacteria in the water. They are an environment-friendly option that does not make use of any chemicals to clean the water.
  • You can also opt for reverse osmosis filters as they are effective in removing various contaminants and you get clean and odour-free water in your home

As you can see, there are numerous water filter products that you can choose from. We work closely with our clients, and our focus is always on making sure that you get value for money. We will have detailed discussions with you, determine what your budget and requirements are, and recommend solutions that fit into them. Our licensed Sydney plumbers can help with every aspect of the water filter installation.

Drain blocks are very common problems on commercial as well as residential properties. While these problems seem like they have cropped up all of a sudden, they generally build up over a period. Most people tend to ignore the signs of a drain blockage, which is why it gets out of control and turns into an emergency.

When you are dealing with a sewer blockage, you need to have quick access to an excellent licensed, plumbing professional. We at SPS Plumbers Hills District are a leading company in this industry and have been catering to residential and commercial clients across the region for several years. 

We understand that some plumbing problems have to be dealt with immediately and drain blockages are one of them. When there is a drain block, there can be a backup of sewage water in various areas of the bathroom areas, the bathtub as well as the kitchen. Not only is this unhygienic, but it also creates a very unpleasant environment in the home.

How are CCTV Cameras Used?

There was a time when drain block repairs were very complicated. However, with the introduction of new plumbing technology, it has become possible to fix these problems quickly. A large part of carrying out any plumbing work is about accurate troubleshooting. Today credible companies like us use advanced tools such as CCTV drain cameras to determine what is causing the block. 

These CCTV cameras are minute and are inserted via a cable into the affected drain. The live feed is visible on a monitor above the ground. The plumbers can see what is causing the blockage. In some cases, tree roots are the culprit, and they create a lot of problems in underground pipes.

Using CCTV cameras gives plumbing professionals the visibility they require while handling all of these jobs. Proper assessment goes a long way in ensuring that the fix is accurate and that the job is completed quickly. 

 CCTV Cameras in Underground Pipe Repair Works 

When CCTV cameras are used in fixing this work, the experts are also able to see whether there is any damage to the pipe. Sometimes minor cracks can turn into severe problems down the line. If these exist, the plumbers will inform you about it so you can decide whether you want pipe relining done.

All of these jobs can be completed very efficiently by using CCTV drain cameras which can capture visuals of any faults and problems in underground pipes. Is it easier for the plumbers to complete this job; the work takes a shorter period and is cost-effective too. So the use of this technology becomes a win-win. We are a company that has always adopted the latest tools and equipment in our work, and we use CCTV drain cameras very frequently.

Drain blocks are a prevalent plumbing problem that crops up on residential and commercial properties. While this problem doesn’t surface out of the blue, poor maintenance is the reason for it.  Since the drains are out of sight, they are also out of mind.

Most property owners get other plumbing problems fixed promptly. However, they neglect getting maintenance done on the drain systems. We at SPS Plumbers Hills District have seen that it is generally neglect which causes the problem to become aggravated over time. 

The Causes of Blocked Drains

Let’s look at what causes drain blockages 

  • Tree Roots in The Drain Pipe – The drainpipes that are under the ground in your landscaping leading out to the main city drains can sometimes develop cracks.  It doesn’t take time for tree roots to find their way into the drain pipe, and they start growing at an alarming pace. 

Before long these tree roots form a net inside the pipe and all the debris and food particles begin to get accumulated in there. Eventually, the buildup becomes so severe that it results in a backflow in the drains.

  • Items Lodged in the Pipes– Various items such as toilet deodorant holders, sanitary products, flushable baby wipes, and toilet paper can find their way into the drains. If these get caught in the bends and junctions in the pipes, they can result in blocked drains.
  • Pipe collapse- There are times when the drain pipes get misaligned, and conditions such as pressure from tree roots around them or even ground movement can cause a collapse of the pipes. In most instances, this occurs when there are heavy rain/drought conditions.  The collapse results in a complete blockage and can cause a backup of sewage water in your home.
  • Poor Drainage System Installation – There may incorrect slope/ fall in the drains, which can lead to blockages as well as debris buildups. At times there could be too many  junctions/bends in the pipe that can cause similar issues

Signs of Blocked Drains

While there are several causes of blocked drains, there are many warning signs that can help you identify that there is an issue. Some of these include:

  • After you flush the toilet, you can continue to hear some gurgling sounds from the system.  These sound could good be coming from the sink, bath, shower, or toilet. They are generally caused when water that has been flushed displaces any air trapped in the drainage system.
  • If you find that the water levels in your bath, sink or toilet are draining very slowly or if the water is rising in these fixtures, it means you have a drain block. 
  • A drop in the toilet water level also indicates that there may be some problems in the system due to which the water gets siphoned out of the toilet pan.
  • Blocked drains can begin to leak into the subfloor area which can cause bad smell on your property.

As you can see, there are many different warning signs of blocked drains, and it is a good idea to call in in a licensed Sydney plumber to determine what is causing the problem.
