No dig pipe repair
If you have a damaged pipe, there are a few different ways in which it can be repaired. The major options are pipe relining, pipe patching and pipe replacement, and the one that is most suitable really depends on the type and extent of the damage to the pipe. Pipe patching however is becoming one of the most sought after options, due mostly to its low cost and short completion time, meaning your garden doesn’t need to be dug up when your pipes need fixing.
Pipe patching involves relining only the section of pipe which is damaged, instead of the whole pipe, to provide targeted repairs to the issue. This no-dig approach has so many benefits, it is easy to see why it is becoming a practical favourite.
The benefits of pipe patching
Pipe patching is the most cost-effective and speedy fix to smaller cracks and leaks in your pipes that don’t need a full relining or replacement. It is a durable option, meaning it won’t need regular replacement or attention and will permanently fix the issue without large scale excavation works or labour costs.
It is great at accurately targeting a specific section of damaged piping, which is perfect when there is one particular area of piping causing issues, instead of needing to reline the whole pipe. It doesn’t require the excavation of your landscaping or months of work, which is a great positive for everyone as no one wants the cleanup after that.

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.
