When Should You Call a Plumber?
As your drain cleaning experts in Victoria we’re the ones you should call if you notice any of these issues with your drains:
- Slow Drains: If the rate in which your water drains from your sinks, tub, etc., is slow, causing water to build up. Or you’re finding that your drains are completely blocked and water won’t drain at all. In severe cases, water can even begin to bubble back out of your drain causing flooding.
- Leaks: If there’s enough pressure on your pipes from blockages then leaks can form, which in turn can have serious consequences for both you and the health of your home. Leaking water can cause structural damage to your home, as well as the development of mould which is hazardous to your health.
- Strange-Tasting Water and Foul Odours: If you have a blockage then waste can get trapped in your pipes and remain there causing bacteria to form. Bacteria can cause your water to taste bad and is potentially unhealthy for consumption. Bacteria can also release foul odours that will begin to permeate from your sinks and toilets.
FAQs About Main Sewer Drain Clearing
Do We Clear Main Sewer Drain Lines Through Roof Vents?
We do NOT go through roof vents. This is a very effective way to cause roof leaks but an ineffective way of clearing stopped drains. Drain vents use non-directional fittings which are different than actual drain lines. Very often this results in trapped cables. It is unnecessarily dangerous and we don't want anybody getting harmed.
Why Do I Need a Clean Out?
Easier to locate the sewer line. Makes clogs accessible to proper-size blades and cables. Enables access by Hydro Jet if needed. Closer to stoppage with fewer turns, giving cable added strength for better clearing.
Can You Clear My Main Sewer Drain Through My Toilet?
Yes, but ideally we avoid it if possible to prevent messy drain cables and machines inside your home. As well sometimes this method may not work if the piping arrangement has too many turns before the blockage making the cable strength ineffective.
What's an IMPROPER Sink Drain Clean Out?
Answer: A trap plug or trap union is for cleaning the trap, NOT the drain line behind it.
