We Fix blocked Drains
Fixing blocked drains is an essential plumbing service that involves removing blockages from drains in residential and commercial properties. Blocked drains can be caused by a variety of factors, such as grease buildup, foreign objects, tree roots, or ageing pipes. Blockages can cause slow drainage, foul odours, and even sewage backups. The Down Plumbing & Gas professionals use specialised tools and techniques to locate and remove blockages, such as hydro-jetting, drain snakes, and CCTV cameras. Preventative measures can also be taken to avoid future blockages, such as regular drain cleaning and maintenance. Fixing blocked drains promptly can prevent further damage and restore plumbing systems.
Prompt & Professional
Having a plumber fix a blocked drain fast is a necessity for several reasons. Firstly, blocked drains can cause water to back up and overflow, potentially causing water damage and unsanitary conditions. Secondly, blocked drains can emit unpleasant odours, making the affected area uncomfortable to be in. Thirdly, if left untreated, a blocked drain can lead to more serious plumbing issues such as sewer backups inside the property. By addressing the problem promptly, a plumber can fix the immediate issue and prevent more serious problems from developing. In addition, professional plumbers have the necessary equipment and expertise to locate and remove blockages safely and effectively, minimising damage or injurry.
CCTV for blocked drains is an effective method of identifying and locating the blockage source. CCTV cameras are inserted into the drain, allowing our plumbers to view the inside of the drain and identify the cause of the blockage. This could be a foreign object, tree roots, or a collapsed pipe. This technology provides a detailed visual inspection of the drain, allowing for a more accurate diagnosis and targeted solution. CCTV inspections can prevent unnecessary excavation or disruption to the property, saving time and money. Additionally, CCTV inspections can be used as preventative measures by identifying potential issues before they become major problems. Overall, CCTV for blocked drains is a valuable tool for efficient and effective plumbing solutions.
Our specialist Gold Coast plumbers use a range of techniques to clear blocked pipes or drains depending on the blockage’s nature and severity. Common methods include drain snakes, hydro jetting, augers, and chemical drain cleaners. Down Plumbing & Gas may also need specialised equipment or techniques for stubborn blockages. It’s crucial to note that while minor blockages can be cleared with DIY methods, significant blockages or plumbing system issues may require a professional plumber.

Frequently Asked Questions
Minor blockages can sometimes be cleared using DIY methods, such as pouring boiling water, baking soda and vinegar, or a plunger down the drain. However, using improper methods or tools can worsen the blockage or damage the pipes, so it’s best to call a professional plumber if you’re unsure.
Preventative measures include properly disposing of food waste, hair, and other debris, using drain screens, avoiding pouring grease down the drain, and having regular professional drain cleaning services.
If your drain is completely blocked and DIY methods aren’t working, it’s best to call a professional plumber. Attempting to remove the blockage yourself can cause further damage and lead to more costly repairs.
