    Drain Cleaning & Installation

    Blocked drains can be a real nuisance and can cause a lot of inconvenience to homeowners. One of the most prevalent plumbing issues in Canberra households is blocked drains.


    This problem is a result of the regular use of taps and showers. Every time a tap is turned on or a shower is used, debris such as hair, soap, or food particles can be swept along with the water and get lodged in the drain or within the pipe turn. This can lead to blockages, and if left unresolved, can result in more severe problems such as overflowing toilets or pipes that burst.


    Therefore, it is essential to seek assistance as soon as possible to address any signs of a blocked drain.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Are blocked drains covered by home insurance?
    Drains can get blocked over time. You can avoid it by maintaining them regularly. If you get a plumber to clear out your drains two to three times a year, you might have a better chance of getting covered by home insurance. But it is not guaranteed.
    Is a drain snake or auger dangerous?
    If you don't know how to use an auger, don't try it yourself. It's best to hire a professional plumber to use it. These tools are good for removing tough blockages, but if you use it incorrectly, it can damage the drain pipes. This may lead to a bigger problem, like a flood, instead of just a blocked drain.
    Who is responsible for blocked drains tenant or landlord?
    Different states have different tenancy laws, which may make it confusing for landlords to understand their responsibilities for repairing the property during a tenant's lease. Generally, landlords must ensure that the necessary repairs are carried out throughout the lease. They must arrange for any repairs that are needed in a rental property. If a landlord fails to undertake repairs in a timely fashion and the tenant's goods are damaged, they may have to compensate the tenant for the damages. If the repairs were caused by the tenant's misuse of the property, the tenant must pay for the repairs. It is important for both landlords and tenants to follow the tenancy laws and carry out all repairs quickly and efficiently to maintain a safe and enjoyable living environment for everyone.

    Why does my drain clog and how do I unblock it?
    Drains can clog due to several reasons, the main one being debris such as oil, soap, hair, and food products building up over time and creating a blockage. There are many drain cleaners available on the market that are a good initial step to unblock a drain yourself. However, sometimes drains may be beyond the capabilities of domestic drain cleaning chemicals. If this is the case, it's time to call your local plumber.
    Why is my sink draining slowly?
    There may be something blocking your drainpipe, causing it to drain slowly. You can use drain cleaners to try and solve the problem, but it's best to contact a plumber if the cleaners don't work. If your drain is draining slowly, it could be a sign that it will soon be completely blocked.
