Most of our work comes through recommendation and we actually provide support to some of the other plumbing companies in the area, so give us a call first to save yourself money.

So how do you know if you need Drain Repair?

No-one ever thinks about their drains until there's a problem, maybe slow draining water or waste water that doesn't drain away at all. Let's discuss some of the signs that might suggest you need drain repair.

  • Slow drain or blockage.
  • Water takes a long time to drain from the sink or exterior drains.
  • The sinks in the home or exterior drains are full and wont empty.

Definitely give us a call straight away! This is almost always due to debris stuck in the pipes and often easily remedied. It could be that tree roots that have grown into the pipe. It could be baby wipes are stuck in the pipe. Baby wipes are often flushed down the toilet and as they do not dissolve they cause a blockage. Occasionally, it could be that the pipe has collapsed but this is quite rare.

  • Strange / strong smell in the garden or home

Again this could be a blockage but could also be a damaged pipe. Maybe the pipe has a crack in it and the waste is leaking into the ground around the pipe. Often the water will keep flowing but the waste seeps into the ground causing the smell. Again it could be a collapsed pipe but whatever it is we can fix it and often without digging. We have ways of repairing the pipe from inside so that the water flows freely again and the smell subsides.
