Cracked sewer pipes in Sydney

As the sewer pipes at your home or commercial property get older, they become susceptible to cracks. No matter how it occurs, a cracked sewer pipe can cause severe problems for you and your neighbours. Apart from the foul smell, the leaking water would aid the growth of various harmful bacteria that can potentially cause diseases.
In the event of cracked sewer pipes in your property, we can help you out with our professional services. Our plumbers are experienced, licenced and properly equipped to deal with leaking sewer pipes.
Sewer drainage systems are usually complex. A person without adequate training can potentially cause more harm than good while trying to repair a cracked sewer pipe.

What are the signs of cracked sewer pipes?

Typically, sewer pipes are located underground. This makes it difficult to detect cracked sewer pipes without professional expertise. However, you may look out for the following symptoms:

  • A patch of new grass greener than the remaining grass in your lawn.
  • Growth of mould in otherwise dry sections of your property.
  • The foul smell of sewer gases in around your home.
  • A sudden infestation of rats and insects in your home.
  • Frequent blockages and backing-up of water in bathtubs and sinks.

If such signs indicate that your property in Sydney has a cracked sewer pipe, you may hire our professional plumbers. Seasoned experts working with us would detect the exact location of the crack and patch it up.


Tree Roots

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.

Flushing Oils

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.

Hygiene Objects

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.

What could have caused the cracked sewer pipes?

Plenty of factors can result in cracked sewer pipes. Pipes often get accidentally damaged during landscaping and renovation projects. Quite often, tree roots end up damaging sewer pipes heavily. A blockage in the pipes can also cause an existing hairline crack to expand as the pressure build-up would cause wastewater to escape through the crack. Regardless of the cause, we at Plum First Sydney can fix cracked sewer pipes in Sydney efficiently. Give us a call us at 1300 174 890 for cost-effective plumbing services.
