Are you noticing persistent blockages around the home or business? If it’s happening with multiple drains, this can be a sign of an underlying issue with your drainage system. We’re always on the lookout for the root cause of an issue so that we can fix it for good. Sometimes the root cause is exactly that — with tree roots breaching the pipework and causing toilet blockages and other issues!
Grease and Other Blockages
Probably one of the most common causes of drainage issues is the accumulation of fats, oils and grease in the system. They don’t just block drains; they can wreak havoc on septic tanks, blocking soakaways and leading to complications to onsite wastewater treatment plants in your home or commercial property.
If we don’t immediately know what the problem is and a quick unblocking attempt isn’t solving the issue, we’ll perform a CCTV drain survey so we can watch a quick episode of, “What’s Blocking My Pipes” on the small screen. We sometimes find that the source of an issue is something unexpected. We’ve found roots, collapsed piping, household objects and toys down the drains.
If you’re noticing smells coming from your sinks or around your property which you suspect could be linked to the drains, we have odour tracing tools to track down the source. This includes things such as smoke testing to find leaks in the plumbing. This may involve a quick visit to your roof to reach the soil pipe. This may need to be sealed as the system may need to be contained before we can begin the testing.
