Blocked Drain Plumber

Blocked Drains

What are the early signs of blocked drains?

  • Offensive smells or gurgling sounds from your toilet when flushing.
  • The toilet can be slow to drain or
  • You may notice the water level in the bowl changing.

Blocked drains are unpleasant, can lead to an unnecessary water leak and can become a potential health hazard.

What are likely causes of blocked drains?

Often the result of tree roots searching for moisture. Initially tree roots can invade through tiny cracks in the pipe but as the tree roots grow within the pipe they begin to catch any foreign objects within the drain system. This begins as a partial blockage within the drain but eventually leads to a complete blockage over time.

Other causes of a blocked drain include grease and fat build up from kitchen sinks, hair deposits from shower, bath or basins and foreign objects being flushed down toilets.

Whatever the cause of the drain blockage Doherty Plumbing Solutions have the expertise to promptly resolve the issue in the home or business, with minimal disruption to you. We have drain cameras available that can accurately diagnose plumbing problems if required.

Drain Repairs

When are some circumstances where a drain cannot be cleared?

  • The drain may be severely invaded by tree roots leading to a complete blockage.
  • The drain may be cracked by movement of the ground around the drain or
  • The drain may have collapsed under the weight of heavy machinery or vehicles. This can mean a small section of the drain needs to be repaired or if damage is severe the drain may need to be replaced.

Our specialist drain team will expertly diagnose the problem and effectively communicate what is needed to reach a solution. We have drain cameras available that can accurately diagnose a broken pipe, blocked drain or any necessary pipe repair if required.

    George came; did my work quietly and respectfully. Noted a problem (big gaping crack in the pipe under the bench), and asked if we would like to change it. No pressure applied, and just added it to his list when I gave the go ahead. Would use this company again and again.
