        EQUIPMENT FOR CLEARING A BLOCKED DRAIN

        For most Sydney blocked drain services, we are able to clear the drain on the spot and have your pipes functioning at their best. At VIP Drains we have a variety of tools we can use to clear blocked Sydney drains. These include:
         
        1. Hand Tools – Our highly trained drain experts can resolve a common blocked toilet, basin, or shower with drain rods to shift the blockage. In most blocked drain jobs, this is an effective method of clearing the immediate issue and preventing ongoing issues. Each drain has a unique style of tool used to clear the blockage effectively and our Sydney blocked drain experts are ready and equipped with the right tools for the job!
         
        2. Electric Eel – An Electric Eel is a plumber’s best friend. It’s a tried and tested method of clearing most blocked drains. they’ve survived the test of time for a reason – they work. Although quite heavy and bulky, we could not live without them! Our local VIP Drains plumbing team have the experience to use this tool fast, efficiently, and safely.
         
        3. Chemical Treatment – For some stubborn blocked drains, the safest and easiest way to clear it is with a chemical treatment. This is a safe, non-invasive way to get your lines flowing again. How does it work? Well, a strong, acidic, herbicide is fed down an access point, killing and removing any organic matter. Grime, grease, leaves and tree roots can dissolve to a certain extent.
         
        4. 4. High-Pressure Jetting – More complicated blocked drains may need the assistance of our state-of-the-art high-pressure jetting system that operates at 5000KPA. This baby can cut through tree roots and other debris, common around the eastern suburbs. 
         
        Jet blasters use high pressurised water to force out junk through your pipes where other methods fail. Jet blasters can travel up to 60 metres through your pipes and force almost anything out. This method is used for more complicated blockages or pipework that is larger than 150mm in diameter.
         
        5. Hydro-jetting – If our investigation proves that you have heavy tree root intrusion, solid grease build-ups, or partially collapsed drain/s then we’ll use Hydro Jetting. 
        The beauty of using Hydro Jets for blocked drain cleaning is that they can reach blockages that a standard power drain cleaner cannot get to. Using high-pressure water, our Hydro Jetting equipment can defeat stubborn blockages. 
         
        Hydro Jets also give the pipes an intensive clean and scrub. Hydro Jets are generally the best form of drain cleaning, however, this much power plus the higher operating costs mean it isn’t the right choice for the majority of standard blocked drain issues. We usually reserve hydro jet cleaning for the more stubborn of blockages where standard power drain cleaning equipment has not been successful in clearing the blockage.
         
        6. CCTV Camera – Our crew is also skilled in CCTV camera operation. So, once the blockage is cleared, we can use a closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera to identify the cause of the blockage, and the extent of the damage. With our highly advanced locating equipment we can also pinpoint the exact spot above ground of the blockage, including the depth and direction of flow.
         
        7. Pipe Relining – If you want your drains permanently fixed without destroying your gardens, driveways, or concrete slab then pipe relining might be the best solution. At VIP Drains we can use a two-part epoxy, which is pulled through the pipe and expanded to leave a hard fibreglass shell, which cannot be penetrated by roots. Although only relatively new to Australia, pipe relining has been tried and tested overseas for over 25 years and has a life expectancy of over 50 years.
         

        COMMON SIGNS OF A
        BLOCKED DRAIN IN SYDNEY

        Think you have a blocked drain, but you’re not sure? Here are some common signs to indicate you have a blocked drain before searching online for blocked drain near me. Quite often you can tackle a simple blockage by simply being proactive rather then reactive.

        Is water beginning to pool around the floor drain?

        After you release a plug, is water flowing slowly down the drain?

        Are your toilets, showers or bath are draining slowly?

        Do you have a distinctly bad smell coming up from the drain?

        Can you hear gurgling sounds after letting water down the drain?

        Is the water level in the toilet bowl rises or gets too low?

        Do you have overflowing drains outside?

        If you notice any of these signs around your drains, call our team now and schedule a VIP Drain expert to unclog your drain.

        COMMON SIGNS OF A BLOCKED DRAIN IN SYDNEY

        Many household items and substances have a nasty way of blocking your drains quickly. The most common causes of blocked kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and stormwater drains in Sydney are:

        Tree Roots

        Flushable Wipes

        Feminine Hygiene Product

        Cat Litter

        Hair

        Food Scraps

        Fat Oil Cooking Greace

        Object Lodged or stuck in the Drain

        Debris from storms and overflowing gutters

        Combination of materials that accumulate over time

        Undersized pipes, pipe disintegration, overloaded pipes or the slope of your pipes could also contribute to your blocked drains.

        HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO CLEAR A BLOCKED DRAIN?

        Most homeowners, they’ll usually always opt for the cheaper, “DIY” option. You’ll often see them in Bunnings or the local supermarket, filling their trolleys with Drain-O and other drain cleaning products. Needless to say, the majority of these products are simply gimmicks and will do nothing but waste your money. In fact, many of these over the shelf type drain cleaners are acid-based which can cause corrosion to metal components within your drain system, leading to additional problems later on.

        It’s difficult to put a fixed value on clearing blocked drains in Sydney because so many things affect the price. Sydney blocked drains can occur for any number of reasons and the right solution depends entirely on the cause. A simple blockage caused by organic debris, such as food scraps in the kitchen sink, can be quick and cheap to fix.

        WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CLEARING BLOCKED DRAIN IN SYDNEY

        A blocked sewer line can very quickly get really unpleasant so it’s important to get repairs or drain clearing started as soon as possible. Homeowners are responsible for maintaining the drains and wastewater systems within the boundaries of their property. This means that it is up to the homeowner to organise and pay for any sewer or stormwater repairs that occur within these boundaries.
         
        The responsibility for a blocked sewer pipe falls into two categories:
        • The property owner
        • The local council or wastewater authority.

        WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR storm water drains?

        In New South Wales, local councils have the responsibility to manage stormwater drains and systems from public land (for example, roads and parks), private land that pays council rates or other land like Department of Housing properties. Any stormwater drainage that occurs on your property is your responsibility, including maintenance of all piping on your land up until it connects with the water main. You are also responsible for all runoff that occurs from your property, which includes any possible pollutants. Generally, once stormwater leaves your property properly and in accordance with the relevant guidelines and regulations, local councils and Sydney Water are responsible for stormwater drainage in Sydney. This includes the infrastructure and the water running through it!
         

        How to fix a clogged toilet?

        Blocked toilet in Sydney? Having a clogged toilet is never ideal, but when you need an immediate plumber now for blocked toilets, Sydney siders turn to our blocked toilet plumber. We completely understand the urgency of a clogged toilet and make it a point to come to your location quickly with all the necessary tools to fix the issue on the same day. We provide friendly plumbing advice before confirming a blocked toilet service appointment, which can often avoid a plumber’s need. However, we must stress the obvious. 
         
        If your clogged toilet is overflowing, it may be something you preferably leave to the professionals as overflowing clogged toilets are not that hygienic and can be a potential flood risk. Furthermore, it may be something that a standard Sydney toilet plunger won’t resolve, and something better left to a Sydney blocked drain expert. If you are experiencing a blocked toilet in Sydney, waste no more time and call VIP Drains. With the required tools and equipment, we can unblock your toilet quickly and without posing any damages to its structures.
         
        We often get asked, Will a toilet eventually unclog itself? The truth is a clogged toilet will typically unclog itself over time if it is just a paper blockage. Most things that clog a toilet are water-soluble, which means they will eventually dissolve in the toilet water.  If this does not work, you can try the good old plunger, a simple but highly effective way to clear blocked toilets. Following these steps to unclog clogged toilets will sometimes avoid a plumber repairing a clogged toilet with a plunger himself.
         
        How to unblock a toilet without a plunger? The best toilet unblocker you can get your hands on without a plunger is a mixture of baking soda and vinegar, as well as a bucket of boiling water. The easiest and first thing to try when attempting to unclog toilets without a plunger is hot water. The addition of hot water might be enough to loosen the clog and dislodge the blockage. ..If the toilet is still draining slowly, pour a generous amount of liquid dish soap into the partially filled bowl.
         
        If your toilet is overflowing and plungers are beyond helpful to unblock your toilet, call our blocked toilet plumber for immediate service, and we will come to the site and do light work to clear the blocked toilet. Our team of local plumbers in Sydney are committed to unclogging your blocked toilets fast. We understand that blocked toilets are a huge inconvenience, and we have the technology on hand to begin repairs right away. 
         

        Tips To Avoid Blocked Toilets

        1. Don’t treat your toilet as a garbage bin.
        2. Only Flush the three P’s – Poo, pee, and toilet paper.
        3. Don’t flush anything that isn’t biodegradable.
        4. Don’t overload the toilet with to much toilet paper.
        5. Read our blog ( LINK ) for further details.

          HOW DO I PREVENT BLOCKAGE?

          Ensure you always remove hair and other items from your bath or basin drainpipe cover. Do not wash or flush any matter down the drains. Kitty. litter, tissues, food matter, hair etc. Always dispose of these things in your bin to help avoid blocked drains.

          HOW DO I UNBLOCK?

          The easiest way to unblock your toilet is with a plunger. Simply cover the outlet at the bottom of the toilet bowl then start by gently pushing down followed by pulling up. Gradually increase the force of your movements until the water recedes. Add more water then repeat the same action. If a plunger doesn’t unblock your toilet, it’s time to call Sydney plumbing Specialists VIP Drains.
