Blocked Drain Emergency Repairs

Blocked drains are a major plumbing problem and can be extremely difficult to deal with. What makes the matter worse is that this problem also seems to arise out of the blue and takes you unawares. In most instances, it isn’t something you can fix yourself and you would need to hire the services of a good licensed plumber in Sydney for the job.
We at SPS Plumbers are one of the leading companies in the plumbing space in Sydney and can handle all types of plumbing jobs and provide excellent emergency blocked drains solutions to both residential and commercial clients across the region. While it does seem like a blocked drain surfaces without warning, the fact is there are plenty of signs that are indicative of a potential blocked drain.
It’s just that people tend to overlook those signs; or even when they notice a slow moving drain or find themselves dealing with a blockage, they simply try to use a plunger to get the problem fixed. But that is only a temporary fix and if you find yourself dealing with blocked drains very often, it can mean there is a major build-up within the drain pipe.
Blocked drains- the causes
Blocked drains are commonly caused by:
• Wet tissues being flushed down the toilet
• Feminine hygiene products

• Hair, soap and grease

Blocked drains- the signs
It’s important to be aware of what causes drain blocks and when you are careful about not discarding these products into sinks, toilets and shower areas, it can help prevent these blocks from happening. Some of the common signs of a drain block include:
• Slow drainage – If your drain pipes are all clear of obstructions, the wastewater will simply flow down quickly and the tubs/sinks will drain without any problems. However, if there is any kind of obstruction, the drainage will slowdown and over time there can be a build-up of waste within the drain which will result in a complete block.
• Water backup – If you find that the water is flowing back out of the drain rather than getting drained down the pipes, it indicates you have clogged drains. It’s important that you discontinue using that drain temporarily and call in a licensed plumber to inspect the drain without delay.
• Flooding – This is one of the most noticeable signs of drain blockage. Water pooling or flooding on your property can cause a lot of damage to the features such as flooring, walls etc.
