Emergency blocked drain repairs:

Blocked drains and burst pipes are hazards and require immediate emergency repair. When such a disaster strikes, give us a call and we’ll be out to you straight away; we offer 24-hour emergency plumbing repairs across the wider Tweed Heads area. We respond immediately to emergency drain repair calls, however please note that after-hours emergencies are subject to a surcharge.

Preventative drain maintenance:

If you’ve noticed your drains are taking longer than usual to drain or are making loud noises when you run the taps, we recommend having one of our plumbers take a look before the situation turns into an emergency. We’ll inspect all the drains and ensure they’re cleared and that any draining or leakage problems are taken care of. While we’re there, we can also take a look at any other plumbing problems you’re having (i.e. leaky taps) for added peace of mind.

We also conduct regular ‘hot-blasting’ for businesses that suffer from regular drain blockages, i.e. fast-food restaurants. Naturally, it can be difficult to clear all the build-up of grease in plumbing when you’re cooking all-day, every-day. To account for this, we schedule hot-blasting for local food businesses at regular intervals to ensure their operations aren’t held up by a pipe blockage.

Blocked drains FAQs

What are the common signs of a blocked drain?

We touched on two of the most common signs above (loud noises and slow draining), but there are other things to look out for too, including an unpleasant odour, toilet levels increasing when you run a tap and sewage seeping from a drain or manhole.

How can I prevent a blocked drain?

The most important thing you can do to prevent your drains from becoming blocked is to monitor the waste that goes down your drain pipes on a regular basis. This includes harmful substances which end up going down your sink or shower and flushing inappropriate objects down the toilet. However, there are steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of a blocked drain, including installing drain guards, using a drain cleaner and conducting regular hot-blasting.

What are the side-effects of a blocked drain?

If you’re not careful about what goes into your drains, you could experience some unpleasant side effects, including foul-smelling water, damage to your electrical fittings and wiring, and leaking ceilings, roofs and walls.

Is it safe to unblock a drain by myself?

We wouldn’t recommend that you try to unblock a drain without expert help, but this is at your own discretion. If you choose to attempt it yourself, bear in mind that it can be incredibly messy and time consuming without the right equipment or experience. You may also find it difficult to remove the cover and even locate the blockage.

How long will it take for you to unblock a drain?

With our expert technicians and state-of-the-art equipment, we can unblock a drain within a matter of minutes. Depending on the severity of the blockage and its cause, the process may take slightly longer, but either way, we’ll be able to solve your drainage problems before you know it.
