Sandstone Point Blocked Drains Plumbers


Hughes Plumbing Contractors are Sandstone Point’s Best Drain Clearing Plumbers


How Can I Tell If I Have Blocked Drains in Sandstone Point?


This is a common question that clients ask us here at Hughes Plumbing Contractors. There are many signs that indicate a blocked drain or sewer at your residence. Some of these signs may include strong odours, signs of overflow or water that is emptying from drains and toilets unusually slow, insufficient water in the toilet bowl, and strange sounds being emitted from the plumbing. It may be difficult to discern why you drains or pipes have gotten blocked, but a lot of the time the problem lies further down the line. Rubbish, plant matter, sanitary items, and many other kinds of items may have made their way into the pipework and become stuck. In most cases we deal with, pipes have become blocked as a result of age, wear and tear, and from tree roots that have grown downwards into your water supply. You can take preventative action against drain blockages by regularly cleaning debris from your drains, using a drain catcher and not flushing items down the toilet that are known to cause blockages.


Why should I call a plumber? Can’t I perform these repairs myself?

So you’re able to identify the signs of a blocked drain, and you’ve learned some methods to prevent blockages from occurring in the first place, so why should you pay a plumber to unblock your drains? There are several reasons why contacting a professional plumber is your best option for unblocking drains in Sandstone Point.

Firstly, many of the over-the-counter drain cleaners sold in stores are very harmful to the safety and well-being of your family, as many of them contain volatile or toxic ingredients. The risk of using these products is amplified when incorrect safety equipment and inexperience are added to the mix. Additionally, these products can be completely ineffective on certain kinds of blockages, particularly larger ones.

Some people also try and unblock their drains using augers and drain snakes. Although these tools can unblock large material blocks, they are completely ineffective against blockages caused by tree roots. This equipment can also cause further damage to pipes if you aren’t trained to use them.


If you are experiencing blocked drains in Sandstone Point, call the team at Hughes Plumbing Contractors. With over 40 years combined experience in the industry, we know how irritating it can be having a blocked drain that you can’t fix. Although many try to wait for the problem to solve itself, it is very important to be vigilant about fixing the problem. Leaving a blocked drain untreated can lead to far more serious issues including flooding in your property. These events have the ability to cause permanent and irreversible damage to the foundations and interior of your property, which can quickly turn into a very expensive problem. To avoid costly damages, we advise our customers to contact Hughes Plumbing Contractors as soon as you are made aware of an issue. They will assess the problem and return your plumbing to its original function in no time. When you compare the small cost of hiring a plumber to the potential stress, damage, inconvenience and financial toll of attempting to unblock your own drain, the decision is simple.
