Why You Should Call A Plumber For A Blocked Drain

Not every blocked drain is created equal. Sometimes the blockage would be very temporary while at others it can be quite a serious problem. Depending on the severity of the problem, it is necessary to call in a licensed plumber for the job. We at Australia Wide Plumbing & Electrical have seen that clients are sometimes unsure about exactly when they need to call in a plumber to deal with a blocked drain problem. Here are some indications that the blockage requires expert attention:

  1. The Blockage Is Very Deep In The Pipes

If you have a surface level drain blockage, a plunger is all you would need to clear the drain. On the other hand, if you have already attempted to use a plunger but find that the problem hasn’t been solved, it would mean that the blockage is buried deep in the pipes. In such a situation, you would need to hire the services of a plumbing professional. They will use the latest equipment and tools in their work in order to ensure that the blockage is removed efficiently and within the shortest possible time.

  1. There Is A Lot Of Leakage Or Pooling Of Water

If the blockage is very serious, it can damage your plumbing. Aside from this, you will also notice that there is a backup of water in various areas of your home. If you find pooling of water or leakage, it is important to call in a plumber right away. They will use their experience and the latest equipment in order to determine what the source of the problem is.

  1. Frequent Clogging Of A Specific Drain

If you find that one particular drain clogs very frequently, there could be some blockage in the drain pipe. It’s best not to do any kind of guesswork when it comes to severe drain blockages. Experienced plumbers like the ones at our company will use the latest equipment like CCTV drain cameras in order to identify the location and cause of the blockage. This helps them carry out the drain clearing work efficiently.
