It’s a common misconception that the problem attended to most often by professional plumbers is not a dripping tap, a burst pipe, or a bung hot water system. In fact, it’s that age-old issue that always seems to crop up just when you want your water and your waste to simply go away – it’s drain cleaning services. That’s why the best in the business never leave Plumber HQ without the latest and greatest in drain cleaning tools.
One misconception is that a brew of DIY willpower, elbow grease and basic drain unblocking tools will almost always get those clogged drains flowing again. We’re talking about things like:
Unfortunately, while we’re not knocking DIY elbow grease or grandad’s famous tricks, not every blockage will budge even a tiny bit without the experience, training and knowledge of a great local plumber. Yes, it might just be months of built-up gunk or a Barbie Doll’s head lodged down there, but there’s other, more serious things that might have gone wrong with your drains. These common issues include:
When those trickier problems strike, you’ll be glad that Sydney’s very best local plumbers always carry some seriously powerful and professional-grade drain blockage tools in their arsenal. Drain blockage won’t budge? Ask your plumber if they carry:
We told you about the hand-held, DIY version that you can buy for a few bucks at Bunnings. Well, let us introduce you to the real deal – which use a motor rather than elbow grease to clear those drains in a super-charged hurry. Your plumber may even have specific versions for pipes, sinks, toilets and sewer lines.
A what? Well, think about that time when you cleared a gunked-up PVC downpipe with a garden hose. Now, crank up the power of that water to an imaginary 100, and you’re thinking about a high-pressure water jetter. That immense water pressure is always safest in the hands of a true professional, but don’t worry: the risk of pipe damage is actually lower than when using a powered drain snake.
How on earth did plumbers do their crucial work before CCTV drain inspection cameras were made widely accessible just a couple of decades ago? The ability to peek deeply into drains and pipes to perfectly locate an extremely hidden blockage or problem is now every plumber’s superpower.
When you’re on the hunt for a great local Sydney plumber, here’s the ultimate test: Say to them: “Tell me about your no-dig pipe relining service.” If they ‘um and ah’, move on to someone else – because this innovative service has changed the game when it comes to serious drain problems that require the devastating decision to dig up your garden, paths, concreting or driveways. Today, though, great plumbers use an amazing system of custom epoxy moulds and resin to make your broken pipes like new – without needing a single swing of a sledgehammer.
