How much to Unblock Pipes?

Do you have a Drain that Needs Unblocking?

Home or business plumbing is one of those things taken for granted and not to noticed until something goes terribly wrong and you’re suddenly faced with an inconvenient and sometimes smelly problem. Oftentimes, plumbing problems such as blocked drains can be extremely difficult and costly to rectify if not undertaken by trained and professional plumbers.

What Problems Result from Blocked Drains?

Blocked drains can result in various problems from minor flooding during rain or major problems such as causing your toilet to back up and overflow with raw sewerage. Other issues caused by clogged pipes include musty and unpleasant odours coming from stagnant water in your pipes and a weakening of the structural integrity of your home or business due to water leaking into the foundations.

Should I Try to Unblock Drains Myself?

Most people first try to unblock their drains themselves using chemical drain cleaners bought from their local supermarket. Not only are many of these strong chemicals detrimental to the environment and possibly your health, they may have unforeseen consequences for your pipes as well. Although they may be a convenient solution, most chemical drain cleaners include caustic sodas and a variety of harsh chemicals that have the potential to corrode your drainpipes resulting in serious leaks in the future. Furthermore, these chemicals may damage wastewater treatment systems such as septic tanks and potentially pollute natural water supplies. Instead of attempting to perform a DIY drain fix, we recommend using an expert plumbing company to unblock your pipes.

How Much will it Cost to Unblock my Drain?

The simple answer is – it depends. If you have a minor blockage such as a clogged sink or shower, these blockages can usually be removed without much pain or expense. However, if you have a bigger problem such as tree roots in your pipes, a little more effort is required. Additionally, you may like to take advantage of our “no dig” pipe relining service to prevent future blockages. That said, Hughes Plumbing Contractors offer some of the most competitive and affordable drain clearing services in Brisbane.
