Blocked drains can be a nuisance; they’re one of the most common problems affecting household plumbing in Australia.

Blocked drains don’t drain properly, which means that water will drain away much more slowly than usual and in some cases stagnant water will simply sit above the plug, making a sink or bath unusable and causing an unpleasant odour at the same time.

Here at Flowwise we have together some information to assist you.  Let’s take a look at how drains can be unblocked, and how to prevent your drains from becoming blocked in the first place.

How We Unblock Your Drain

If your drain is blocked and no amount of baking soda is helping, it’s time to call in the experts. At Flowwise, we are experts in unblocking drains in the Sunshine Coast. The best way we unblock a drain is by using our no-dig method; this means your drain can be unblocked quickly with minimal disruption to work or home life.

Before Unblocking Your Drain

Before any work begins, it’s important to identify the precise location of the blockage. This can be carried out using a CCTV camera inspection of your drains, using a small camera which is fed through the drains. This camera can locate the blockage as well as providing valuable data on the type of blockage we’re dealing with.

The Process of Unblocking

We then unblock drains using high-pressure cleaning technology, which thoroughly clears the area of all grease and other debris causing the blockage, as well as disinfecting the area. We also use Blueline technology, which acts as a joint-free pipe repair system that can stop blockages and calcium buildup as well as root intrusion, preventing further common sources of blockages in the future.

How to Prevent Your Drain From Getting Blocked Again

Drain Strainers

Using a drain strainer in sinks and other drain areas is an easy way to prevent solids from being washed down the drain, contributing to build up which can cause drain blockages over time.

Proper Waste Disposal

Many people still use drains, sinks, and toilets incorrectly when it comes to waste disposal. This means: not pouring grease and fat down sinks and keeping sanitary products, wipes, and other non-toilet paper products out of toilets.

Regular Pipe Inspections

Keeping your drains clear with regular pipe inspections is an effective way to maintain your drains and prevent them from getting blocked at all. Drainage experts can clear and service your drains regularly to prevent a buildup that leads to a blockage.
