How Do You Know A Drain Is Blocked?
There are a few signs that indicate that your drain is blocked which include:
- The presence of foul smells near the blocked drain.
- A drop in water pressure, i.e., the flow of the water being drained, is unusually slow.
- You hear strange gurgling sounds when the water is emptying into the drain.
- The water does not empty down the drain like it should, in other words, it is just sitting there.
If you happen to be experiencing any of the above mentioned issues, then contact Nupipe right away, and we can help.
The team at Nupipe clears blocked drains across the Perth metro area and our team is available 24/7. Call Nupipe today if you need your blocked drains fixed urgently.
How Nupipe Clears Blocked Drains
As mentioned earlier, we use the latest technology to help identify and address the issue. Our team often needs to formulate a drain opening plan on the fly based on the situation we are dealing with.
Below are the steps we generally follow:
Step no. 1 We start by identifying and locating the problem in your drain using a CCTV drain camera.
There can be a multitude of reasons why your drain is blocked. Some of the most common in our experience include:
- The build-up of dander, fur, and hair
- The build-up of grease in the drain
- Food and cooking oil that gets stuck in the drain
- Breaks or cracks in the pipe
- Tree roots that enter the drainpipe
- Debris like toiletries, baby wipes, and cat litter that get stuck in the drain
Using cameras enables us to identify the location of the blockage, the extent to which it is blocked, and then formulate a plan to open it up without damaging the drain line if it’s already not damaged.
The use of a multi-directional camera allows us to identify issues and the location of the blockage with a high degree of accuracy. Using a camera streamlines the inspection process, saving time and money for our customers. It also allows us to address a problem sooner than what would otherwise be possible.
Step no. 2 Clearing the Drain
After identifying what is causing the drain to get blocked, Nupipe then needs to start working on unblocking and cleaning the gutter. While many other drain cleaning companies may use boiling water, drain auger, vinegar, baking soda, etc., to dislodge the blockage, in our experience, nothing works better than high-pressure water jetting.
Using the latest equipment enables us to shoot water at high velocity, also called hydro-jetting, which breaks up even the most severe blockages. It generally only takes a few minutes, and the process is non-invasive. The cost savings from this simple procedure are passed on to the home or business owner, who would otherwise need to pay for costly excavation work.
However, if we identify that the cause of the blockage is also tree root ingress, we use RootX, a chemical foam that eliminates the fibrous root and inhibits its growth for up to a year. The formulation is non-caustic and non-fumigating, which means it will not harm the tree or impact local wildlife.
Once the drain is unblocked, we then conduct a secondary inspection of the drain by once again inserting our CCTV camera into it. If we find additional debris or other problems with the drain, our team may use water jetting once again and report any issues found.
Step no. 3 Repairing Issues Caused By Blocked Drains
If we discover that your pipes were damaged, there is no need to panic. We use the latest technology to seamlessly repair most leaks in broken or burst pipes with minimal disruption to your home or business.
However, if the pipe is found to be broken and the only way for our clients to experience long-term relief from related issues is to get it fixed, we will then recommend replacing the affected pipe. We can provide you with an estimate and how much time the entire process will take.
