Hydro Jetting Drain Clog Experts!

The two trusted methods of clearing clogged drains and sewer blockages are rodding cable equipment or high-pressure jet cleaning.

Traditional rodding cable equipment, like an electric drain snake, has become a thing of the past. Although this method of clearing clogged drains is effective, it can not fully clean your pipes, leaving substantial amounts of tree root or sludge in your lines, and will damage your drains if used often.

Clogged Toilet Bends:

The S trap pan, the section behind your toilet, designed to prevent sewer gases from entering a building, can be susceptible to blockages. A plunger may be all you need to push a clog out of the bend and into the drain.

When your toilet blockage is in the strap of the pan, call King Plumbing to inspect your toilet and remove the blockage.

High-Pressure Jetter Drain Cleaning:

King Plumbing's high-pressure water jetting technology will clean drains and clear blockages much more effectively than cable machines.

Jetting Machines use high-pressure water at 5000psi to blast drain blockages to pieces while at the same time scrubbing the pipe walls, cutting out tree roots, flushing away grease and fat deposits that over some time have built up inside drainage pipes.

An electric rod cable cannot reach where a jetter hose can travel more efficiently and effectively. We have various jetter nozzles available to pull around toilet pan wastes and tight PVC gully traps.

Why Drains Become Clogged:

There are several reasons why drains become blocked! The kitchen pipes can become clogged with oil, grease, detergents, and food. In the bathroom, drains can be clogged with soap and hair.

 Your drains outside can be blocked with roots, silt, and debris or flooded after a big rainstorm.

When sewer drain is blocked, the pipes are likely blocked by tree roots entering old cracked earthenware clay pipes. Earthenware drains when the earth moves; renovations, new home builds, excavation works, or heavy traffic can become damaged drains. It's unfortunate, but it can quite easily happen.

Here is a list of the 11 most frequently asked drain cleaning questions:

How Do I Know If My Shower Is Clogged?

When your shower is draining slowly, you often find that water pools in the shower tray after you've turned off the shower mixer; this is usually a sign that your shower drain is clogged or a clog is developing.

How Can I Prevent Kitchen Drain Clogs?

Blocked drains in the kitchen occur when people aren't responsible for what they pour into the sink, like oils, fats, and food scraps. Never tip cooking oil and fat down the sink drain, and put food scraps in a compost bin when possible.

Do I Have a Sewer Blockage?

There are ominous signs of a blocked sewer. For example, there might be a foul odour coming from your drains, gurgling in the toilet pan, or unpleasant greywater overflowing from the gully drain outside. The shower, bath, sink, or toilet become slow to drain away.

Call King Plumbing to come to check it out straight away when you notice any of these signs.

Should I Unblock A Drain Myself?

While you can remove a blockage yourself, government legislation makes it illegal for anyone other than a licensed plumber allowed to work on sewer drainage systems. We recommend getting a professional to clear blocked drains to cover you from fines and liability. A homeowner can use Chemical products that pour into a drain, but they're often noneffective at removing tree root penetration.

How Quick Can You Unblock a Drain?

It all depends on the severity of the problem. However, with experience and modern equipment, we have a fast turnaround for most drains– when there's a blocked drain in Hobart, we clear it ASAP.

What Are The Warning Signs Of A Blocked Drain?

If you have a gurgling or glugging sound coming from the shower, bath, basin, or toilet, there's a chance a blockage is beginning to form. If the water takes a long time to drain away, the toilet bowl takes a long time to empty, and the water in the bowl rises, the drain has a blockage.

If The gully outside overflows while using the washing machine, there's also a chance there's a blockage. When you are experiencing any of these issues, King Plumbing and we'll help diagnose the problem.
