Blocked drain repairs Woollahra

Sam found the problem in the worst way possible. He stared at his sneakers through the back door as he spoke to the Neighbourhood Plumber, booking him in to attend that afternoon. Overflowing sewer, disgusting!

The Woollahra Plumber arrived on time, as scheduled. He accessed the rear of the property to investigate the surcharging sewer. Sam pointed out the muck, hidden by a neglected lawn and garden. His sandshoes were sitting on an old chair in the sun, drying after their long date with the garden hose and a bucket of detergent. The Neighbourhood Plumber found that the overflow relief gully had surcharged recently, spewing sewer and toilet paper around the area.

After removing the grate, the Plumber attempted to plunge, but had no success. He then set up and began to use his high pressure water jetter. With that he was eventually able to negotiate through the outlet of the gully. He retrieved a large amount of baby wipes that were choking the system. The jetter wasn’t able to clear through the blockage as the bends in the outlet of the gully was preventing it. Sam listened to the Plumbers explanation, and sheepishly eyes off the pile of baby wipes currently stacked on his lawn. He hadn’t realised they could cause such a problem! He agreed with the Neighbourhood Plumber, that they needed to dig down near the outlet of the gully. He grabbed a bottle of water for the tradie, as the Plumber got to work clearing the earth. When the old earthenware inspection lid was uncovered, the Plumber removed it. He ran the jetter down the line again, removing more baby wipes. He also found tree roots at roughly 1m downstream from the gully. Once he had the sewer running again, the Plumber set up and began using the drain camera. He found a large penetration of roots 1m downstream. He continued and found a small root growth about 1.2m before the final connection to the Sydney Water Sewer Main. The remaining sections, including upstream, were clear and in good order.

Sam, having watched the view screen as well, felt dread settling in his stomach. It was a family home, and had been for over sixty years, so the pipes were old. He couldn’t help but ask if he’d need to replace the old earthenware with PVC tubes. The local Woollahra Plumber agreed he would need to, but it wouldn’t have to be at the moment. The Plumber cleared the remaining root penetrations and tested every fixture in the house, ensuring everything was flowing properly. Everything seemed to be working okay now. Sam promised to stop flushing baby wipes and assured the helpful Plumber that if any more problems arose, he would definitely call again.

If your sewer is blocked, or worse, flowing over your yard, call your local Woollahra Plumber! Whether it’s your stormwater drain, or a blocked grate on your bathroom floor, your Neighbourhood Plumber knows what to do! Call and book an appointment now on 0488 885 209!
