What Are The Different Kinds Of Drain Blockages in Caboolture?
Most of the time, people hear “blocked drain” and automatically think of toilets. However, water flow in pipes all throughout your home can be affected. We’ve seen every possible kind of blockage over our years working in Caboolture.
In Caboolture homes, kitchen sink blockages are quite common. It’s not surprising with all kinds of waste and grime going down those pipes. Things like food scraps, grease, fat and oil can all get stuck in your drains. Generally, this can be avoided by scraping scraps into the bin and using a proper plug. Scraping and rinsing plates before they go into the dishwasher is also a great idea to avoid clogs.
We also get a lot of calls about blocked showers and baths. You might notice them draining slower than usual or making strange sounds only to find out there is something stuck inside. There are countless causes for this. However, there are certain things you can do to avoid this. Firstly, avoid letting too much of hair go down the hole and install a drain cover.
Blockages can also occur underground or outside your home. Caboolture has a large amount of native and exotic tree species like flooded gum, black bean, pines and palm trees. Unfortunately, a lot of the trees found in the entire Moreton Bay region have aggressive roots which can block your drains underground. Be careful what you plant in your yard! Along with root growth problems, leaf and garden litter can cause problems. Stormwater blockages in Caboolture are common, and they are often caused by leaves and sticks ending up in your drains.
Drain Clearing Solutions Can Save You Time and Money
Now that you’ve read about a variety of pipe problems like blocked toilets, showers, sinks and stormwater drains, you might be wondering how to prevent them. No need to worry! Sure, drain blockages can be frustrating and unpleasant. However, expert plumbers in Caboolture have amazing equipment which can eliminate clogs in a jiffy.
One method that our customers love is the CCTV drain camera. This equipment allows us to take a look at your pipes in real time to identify the cause and location of blockages fast. After we’ve efficiently diagnosed the issue, we’ll get to work using our hydro jetter or electric eel.
Hydro jetters function like an extremely powerful hose. By blasting water through an obstructed pipe, they allow us to eliminate blockages in no time. High pressure water jetters will also remove any residue that’s building up on the inside of your drains. A cleaner drain means you’re less likely to get a blockage in the future.
On the other hand, electric eels are a long cable with a drilling tool on the end. They spin around in your pipe and tear blockages apart fast. Even thick tree root clogs aren’t safe from this powerful equipment!
