Drain Repairs By A qualified Blocked Drain Plumber

We know that blocked drains can be a minor issue or a major problem. Every blocked drain plumber operates out a fully-equipped mobile van so they’re always prepared to handle any level of blockage. We make sure all GA PERRY Perth plumber vans are stocked with tools and equipment to complete the full range of drain services.

For minor blockages, our fully licensed plumbers may use a range of tools including drain augers, small water jets, plungers, mini drain machines and hand sani-snakes. For more serious obstructions, we make sure our tradesmen are equipped with powerful electric multi-size drain cutting machines and each van carries up to 50 meters of drain clearing cable. Both of these tools are vital to cut out and clear the cause of any large blocked drains.

From unblocking small drains to large-scale drain repair, we pride ourselves on getting the job done right the first time. The work of a blocked drain plumber can be messy, that’s why our tradesmen always clean up after themselves and leave your home as they found it. Ordering and fitting new parts can take time and money, we aim to repair blockages first and only replace drains if needed. Call us today, we’re open 24/7.

Signs Your Drain Is Blocked

If a qualified GA PERRY tradesman unblocks your drains early it can greatly minimise potential damage and burst pipes, especially in aging drains. There are many signs and signals that one (or a few) of your drains are blocked. Here are some of the most common things to look out for:

  • Water is not draining down your shower, sink or bath plug hole.
  • There is a gurgling sound when you flush the toilet.
  • Your toilet is clogged, and the water level rises when it flushes.
  • Unpleasant smells are coming from your drains.
  • There’s brown sewage coming out of your over flow relief gully outside.
  • You have reoccurring drain issues that don’t seem quite right.

Avoiding Blocked Drains

To stop your drains from getting clogged up, you have to keep them healthy. We recommend regular camera drain inspections from our qualified and experienced plumbers, they’ll detect problems early and complete drain maintenance. There are some tips and tricks you can use in between plumbing inspections to prevent blockages.

Kitchen Plumbing

The main culprit in the kitchen is food waste. Make sure you put leftover cooking oils and fats in the bin not down the sink. Rinsing plates and cutlery before you stack the dishwasher can stop food waste getting stuck in your wider plumbing system. We recommend using a filter or strainer in your kitchen sink, to capture food scraps before they get washed down the drain.

Bathroom Plumbing

It’s a bit trickier to avoid blocking your drains in the bathroom. Toothpaste, shampoo and other bathroom products are always going to cause trouble over long periods of time. You can try DIY home remedies but be aware this could cause more damage to your drains than expected, it’s always best to check with a bathroom and shower services plumber. The GA PERRY plumbing services team can help you with the repair of your drain and cleaning.
