Blocked drains can occur in various areas of your home, including sinks, showers, bathtubs, toilets and floor drains. They result from a buildup of soap scum, hair, toilet paper, toys, grease, food particles, and other materials that accumulate over time and obstruct the normal flow of water. In regional areas like the South Burnett we find the leading cause of blocked drains is actually tree roots outside.
Clogged drains are actually very common and can be a major inconvenience, and also be quite costly. Theuerkauf Plumbing Services uses specialised tools and techniques only gained from experience, to efficiently clear blockages, restoring your drains to optimal functionality. More often than not, we spend most of our time using high-powered water jets to cut tree roots that have penetrated the pipework. If you have ongoing recurring blocked drains, then this is most likely your issue.
Symptoms to look for include slow drainage, gurgling sounds from the drain or toilet, water backing up in sinks, and foul odors emanating from the kitchen, bathroom or laundry. In severe cases, water may not drain at all.
Blocked drains cannot be quoted up front, because it is impossible to know the extent of the blockages without an inspection with a drain camera.
