I’ve tried to unblock my drain but it doesn’t work. What should I do?

When there is overflowing water around your sewer and stormwater drains, a strange smell coming up from your kitchen sink drain or water that is not draining, you most likely have a blocked drain. To clear a blocked drain sometimes can be a difficult job. Jetters or drain cables can sometimes get the job done, but you may not know how they should work. There are some  blocked drains that can be an  easy fix, but sometimes they can be difficult and calling a licensed plumber like those employed at King Plumbing Hobart can save you time and money, and have the job done properly.

Why should I call a plumber?

You can actually  damage the drains by trying to unblock a drain yourself. A common mistake when trying to clear a blocked drain is using  too much force on the pipes. This can cause a lot of problems, including dislodging or breaking the drain pipes. Another mistake is using a chemical drain cleaner for every drain blockage . Most drain cleaners contain chemicals that can damage the inside of drainage pipes, and with repeated use of these chemicals it can cause major damage and leaks. Some pipes should never have chemical drain cleaner used in them. Read instructions  before using drain cleaner products to make sure its friendly to use.

Do I need a camera inspection of my drain?

Drain camera  inspections can find the cause of the problem quickly . When your drains are blocked in a place that is not seen, or if they seem to block up all the time, it may be a good idea to have a drainage camera inspection. This will help find the problem and a solution to fix blocked sewer or stormwater drains.
