Why it’s a smart idea to get a CCTV drain inspection?

drain inspection camera toolA periodic drain inspection is a great idea for all homeowners, especially if you’re noticing that it takes longer for the kitchen sink to empty or water gradually builds up around your ankles in the shower. CCTV drain camera inspections will allow your plumber to get a clear idea of what is causing the drainage problems and also exactly where the issue is occurring.

Common drain issues frequently uncovered during a CCTV pipe inspection can include:

  • Tree root intrusion – tree roots can quickly follow the ample water and nutrient source escaping from a small crack into the pipe causing a significant blockage in a matter of weeks.
  • Cracks or breaks in the drain – any damage to the pipe, even very small, can cause food scraps, sewage, and other debris to catch, gradually blocking the drain.
  • Crushed drains or pipe collapse – due to heavy machinery travelling over the pipe
  • Debris build-up – items such as leaves, dirt, food scraps, combined with oil, grease and fat washed down the drain can create a solid, smelly, slimy clog in the drain.
  • Misaligned drain joins – over time ground movement can cause drains to become slightly off at the join, letting dirt in and disturbing the smooth flow of the sewage or stormwater.

Older homes and homes recently renovated are most at risk, however, any home regardless of age can suffer from blocked drains.

 

Clearing and repairing the drain

Depending on what the CCTV camera inspection uncovers our plumbers may use a range of methods to clear the drain, as well as repair the drain to prevent the problem from reoccurring in your plumbing systems.

  • Electric eel or drain snake
  • Water jetter or jet rodder – using high-pressure water to clear the drain

Drain repairs

Using no-dig pipe repairs we can fix the damaged drain without needing to excavate large areas of your property, reducing disruption and often repair costs.

  • Pipe relining – trenchless drain repairs which create a smooth, long-lasting section of pipe inside the old, damaged one.
  • Pipe patching – used to repair smaller sections of a broken or cracked pipe.

Plumbing Tip – Routine drain cleaning can reduce the likelihood of blocked drains.

BLOCKED DRAINS FAQ

Plumbers eel vs water jetters

Blocked drains can be a totally nightmare! The stinking smell, backing up water, slowly draining sinks, and gurgling toilets are just some of the signs of blocked drains. Luckily the drains can be cleared easily with the help of important tools in the arsenal of a plumber like a plumbers eel or water jetter. But which is better to clear a blocked drain?

The ideal method used to clear the drain depends on the cause of the blockage and its location.

Who is responsible for blocked drains?

To find out whose responsibility is it to repair blocked drains - property owner, council or tenant, a plumber should be called to identify the root cause and location of the blockage. If the blocked drains are on your property, it is your responsibility or your tenants.

However, there are a lot of grey areas and there should be ample evidence to pinpoint which party caused the damage. If the blockage is outside your property, your local council is responsible. Contact your local plumber, they can tell you who is responsible for the blocked drains and claim the expenses from the council if needed.

Pipe relining vs pipe patching

There is no one best way to fix a pipe and before your plumber would even consider pipe relining or pipe patching, we need to determine the cause of the problem itself. In some cases, blockages can be alleviated by the simple use of a high-pressure jet rodding. In order to repair a pipe with current advanced plumbing techniques, it really depends on the type and extent of the damage to the piping in question.

How much does it cost to unblock a drain?

First, the good news - unblocking a drain is, in most cases, straightforward and fast when you ask a true expert like the drainage experts at Brisbane Plumbing & Drainage.

In the early stages - such as when a sink or bath is slow to drain - the looming prospect of a full blockage can be worrying. Many home or property owners may try to 'DIY' the solution to keep costs down, but these types of fixes are normally temporary or not overly effective.

Despite the specialist equipment and experienced know-how you benefit from by putting it in the hands of an expert, the fix is normally just a low-range three-digit cost. And that's a small price to pay for the havoc that complex tree root incursions, damaged pipes and poor installation can cause down the line.

When should you call a plumber for a blocked drain?

When you ask a licensed, experienced plumber, they'll tell you there are 4 basic warning signs to watch out for when professional help could just avert a total disaster that could cause a huge mess and cost you an arm and a leg.

First, watch out for that toilet. Is the waste draining away as it should? Second, watch out for slow draining in other areas of the house, especially the kitchen, bathroom or other wet areas. Gurgling noises and foul smells are also a red flag to keep an eagle eye on because once a blockage becomes complex and total, it can be too late - and then you'll be needing a 24/7 emergency plumbing call-out and counting the damage in the thousands.

Is a blocked drain classed as an emergency?

A blocked drain can absolutely be an emergency - and one that not only disrupts your life but costs you thousands in repairs and damaged assets and potentially even health impacts. After all, plumbing & drainage was one of the major advances of the 20th century in terms of keeping our homes and bodies healthy and disease-free.

Luckily, Brisbane Plumbing & Drainage have an emergency plumbing team on call 24/7 - and we really mean 24/7, and we really mean 365 days a year, too! That's because a blockage can result in flooding or devastating leaks, and those situations can spiral out of control in a matter of seconds. And with every passing second after that, you could be counting in the thousands of dollars.

Uncontrolled waste is also the perfect breeding ground for bacteria such as salmonella, which can even be fatal for vulnerable people, and your problem could even spill beyond the bounds of your property, making it even more urgent. Generally, our rule is this: If it feels like a plumbing emergency, it most certainly IS a plumbing emergency - so don't hesitate.
