Blocked Drains

Blocked drains can cause plenty of headaches for your household or commercial tenancy, such as water not draining from your toilet or bathroom basin.  

Some blockages are preventable, while others, like tree roots putting pressure on the system are difficult to prevent.  

So, if you hear unusual gurgling or are experiencing unsightly and unpleasant water backing up into places it shouldn’t, it’s time to call Tim Forrest Plumbing and have licensed plumber examine the situation before it gets worse. 

Blocked Drain Repair

Our experienced team of licensed Master Plumbers can help to repair or clear your blocked drains in no time.  

Firstly, we will conduct a visual check of what’s going on with your system and if we can’t see the blockage easily, we carry out an inspection with a drain camera. 

If needed, we then use a jet rodder, also known as a high pressure jetter, which uses extremely high-pressure water to clean your drains and cut whatever is blocking it into smaller pieces, including tree roots.  

If the blockage has led to cracked pipes, we can also provide a quote to repair the damage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do drains get blocked?

Drains can be blocked by a range of items, including cotton buds and sanitary items. Tree roots can also cause blockages.  

How do I prevent drain blockages in the future?

If you look after your drains you can prevent future blockages. Do not put cotton buds, wet wipes or sanitary items in the toilet. Excess food should and grease from frying pans should be placed into a bin and not in the kitchen sink. Hair building up on plugholes should also be removed. Drain filters can also help to prevent items from ending up as blockages.  

How do I know if a drain is blocked?

If there’s a blockage you may find there is a gurgling noise, an unpleasant smell or the water is slow to drain. It’s best to call a licensed plumber to determine what’s going on and get it fixed quickly.  

How can a plumber determine what is blocking a drain?

When we do not know what is causing the issue, we are able to place a camera into the drain to inspect those spots we cannot see.  

What can happen if the drain isn’t unblocked?

When a blocked drain is not resolved, flooding typically occurs – meaning a much more extensive repair bill!
