Blocked sink repairing services in Sydney
Plumbing systems are complex and can have various issues, especially if regular upkeeping does not take place. One of the most irritating plumbing problems that you may encounter as a homeowner is a blocked bathroom or blocked sink in the kitchen or the bathroom. The water might either be draining very slowly, not going below a certain level or not draining at all. Whatever the severity of the issue, it is advisable to get it fixed by a reputed plumbing company like us.
Unless the blockage lies visible in the sink itself, chances are that it’s the sink drain that’s blocked. Just like any other drainage system, it requires certain equipment and experience to clear out a sink drain.
What Normally Gets Blocked?
Why should you hire experienced professionals to fix a blocked sink?
Cleaning out a blocked sink might sound easy. However, it’s actually quite complex. One of the major difficulties in fixing a blocked sink is identifying the problem in the first place.
The sink drain pipes are long, narrow and dark, which makes it almost impossible to spot the blockage unless you have the necessary equipment. Moreover, without the necessary training, you might end up doing more harm than good by trying DIY methods. Hence, it is best to contact one of the leading plumbing services in Sydney to get your sink fixed immediately.
Gardening can be wonderful and fun but it is important to know where your sewer and stormwater drains are laid before planting certain flora. Cracks and spaces in your pipes are especially vulnerable to strong, deep roots and can cause significant damage to your pipe’s health and your wallet! Out of all the blocked drain issues throughout our 20+ years of plumbing experience, tree roots is the number one most common problem.
The most common cause of kitchen sink blockages is oil and waste scraps clogging the drains. Simply DO NOT pour oils down the kitchen sink, but instead pour it into containers to prevent the fats blocking your drain.
Regardless of wipes and female hygiene products being a kind of tissue, you SHOULD NOT flush them down the drain. We advise our customers to dispose of these into a rubbish bin and to remember that all wipes can cause blockages and issues with your drain.
Another common blockage problem is quantities of hair blocking drains. This can easily be prevented by using a hair catcher over your drain or simply remove the hairs from the drain after your shower
Leaves & Debris
Leaves and debris often block stormwater drains. Make sure they’re kept clear. What we recommend to our customers is to place a Protective Gutter Guard or a simple mesh covering over the drain to keep them clean and clear.
