Experts for Blocked Pipes in Canberra
Blocked Pipes & Blocked Pipes Repair Canberra
Every home in Australia has had clogged pipes at some stage or another. The water system is responsible for quite a lot of waste transportation and it is only natural for it to become clogged now and again.
Pipes can be blocked for a wide number of different reasons. In the kitchen, grease and small pieces of waste food are often responsible for the blockage. In showers, it is typically hair in the drain. Poorly installed water systems are more susceptible to blocked pipes. Narrow pipes are more likely to get clogged as it is easier for debris to build up in the smaller diameter.
Regardless of where your blockage came from, or why, we’re here to help.

How Do You Know If Your Pipes Are Blocked?
Using vinegar, baking soda, and water is an effective, eco-friendly method of unclogging pipes that are blocked. The baking soda and hot water will loosen up any build-up that’s clogging your waste pipe, and the chemical reaction from the vinegar will cause the sludge to move on down the drain.
How Do You Clear Pipes That Are Blocked
When you notice any changes in the actual amount of water coming from your faucet or showerhead, or even see a change in the speed or force in which the water comes out, there is a very high chance that your pipes are clogged somewhere down the line. It is rare for no water to pour out, and common for the water to be reduced.
Is It Safe To Pour Boiling Water Down The Toilet?
While commonly recommended, do NOT pour boiling water down your sink or toilet. This can melt PVC piping and pipe seals, causing serious damage. In addition, using boiling water to clear a clogged toilet can melt the wax ring around the toilet, or even crack the porcelain bowl, leading to a pricey trip to your favourite hardware store. If the issue is serious, call in emergency blocked pipes repairs instead of trying to fix the issue yourself.
Why Is My Outside Drain Overflowing?
If you see that an outside drain is overflowing, this usually means that there is a blockage somewhere between the interior plumbing and the outside drain, or, an external blockage from outside debris. If an outside drain is actively overflowing, this is a problem that immediately needs to be addressed.
