Provided you halt running the shower, sink or toilet then your house is at no risk of flooding.
Most blockages are caused by 3 things.
A cracked sewer pipe — This generally shows up by retrieving roots from the drains.
Sanitary products — Please be very cautious of what you are flushing down your drains. All sanitary products should be placed in the bin and not down your toilet.
Hair — Shower and basin blockages are generally always caused by excess hair finding it’s way down the drain. Most common in older homes that contain galvanized piping as the internals of the pipe rust away and cause the hair to get easily caught on the pipes walls.
Whenever roots are removed from a drain using machinery, a camera inspection should always take place as this generally means a cracked sewer. Once camera inspected we can locate the root intrusion points above ground using state-ofthe-art locating equipment and proceed to quote for dig-up repairs.
Gully Replacement = $650+
Once a cracked or backfalling sewer established via a camera inspection, we are now required to dig up and repair. This will put a halt to on-going issues and potentially save you or your clients a very costly headache.
