Everything you need to know about finding a Drain Repairer

Drain repairs are commonly caused by blockages in drainpipes. Tree roots, discarded oils, fat, grease and other forms of litter are the primary causes of these blockages.

How Your Plumber Can Help

For quick and easy repairs, a plunger may be used to force water down the pipes to dislodge a blockage. However, if the blockage doesn’t clear, further inspection by a licensed plumber may be required to determine the cause and location of the blockage. The only permanent way to repair your blocked drains is to completely replace the old pipes with new ones. Alternatively, your plumbing professional may use a CCTV drain diagnostic camera to look down the drain and find the underlying cause of the blockage.

Once the cause of the blocked drains has been determined, a plumbing professional may repair damaged drains by either:

  • Digging and replacing broken pipes - just the area that requires repairing, however, this may still require extensive excavation
  • Relining the damaged area - this is a less invasive area of repairing and rehabilitating your broken drain pipdes.

Tools that the plumbing professional may use to repair the drains include:

  • Electric power drain cleaning machines
  • High velocity water jets
  • High pressure drain cleaner
  • Tree root treatment
