Blocked drain repairs
Drainage design and maintenance is of critical importance and an incorrectly installed drainage system is a serious public health concern. Only a licenced plumber can legally carry out work on drains as they have completed the training to guarantee you and your family a safe installation. A licenced plumber will issue a Certificate of Compliance on completion of their work that provides the peace of mind of a 6-year Victorian Building Authority (VBA) protection guarantee.
What are the signs that your drain is blocked?
Most properties in Melbourne are provided with an Overflow Relief Gullies (ORG) or an Inspection Shafts (IS). These are designed and installed as relief points so that should there be a surge in the main sewer pipe the sewer will overflow outside via the ORG or IS and not inside your home. A common sign you have a blocked drain is the build-up of toilet paper or sewage around these pipes.
Recurring minor blockages or gurgling drain pipes are also typical signs your drain is clogged. Toilet bowls filling up is another cause for concern and slowly draining showers and baths are common signs your drains are clogged or about to become completely blocked.
What to do should your drain show signs of a blockage
Contact your expert local drain plumber as soon as you notice any signs your drain might be clogging up. The earlier you get onto it the easier and the cheaper it will be to unclog or repair your drain. If caught early it may be as simple as plunging your drain to clear the blockage away, then a simple CCTV inspection of your drain will confirm if the fault has been rectified. If left, major blockages can cause damage to drains that may require excavation and replacement at considerable expense.
