Blocked Drain Services

Our team uses advanced CCTV inspection drain cameras to accurately diagnose the cause of drain blockages, minimising the need to dig up unnecessary areas such as pavers or tiles.

Once the fault is identified, we can efficiently repair or unblock the affected section as needed. The CCTV camera also allows our clients to have recorded images for future reference.

After clearing the drain using our drain machines or jetting equipment, we can establish a maintenance plan, whether it’s a permanent repair or regular annual clearing to prevent future blockages.

PBR Plumbing can set up your drain cleaning service in our automated scheduling system, which will notify you and our office when it’s due for maintenance.

Get the peace of mind that your commercial property is safeguarded against the risk of recurring blocked drains. Contact our professional team at PBR Plumbing.

No. We always advise you to engage a professional plumber, as they have the right expertise and equipment to successfully locate and remove the blockage, without damage to the property. Enlisting the services of a skilled professional can result in long-term cost savings.

By accurately identifying the fault in the piping system, our team can minimise repair expenses and ensure that the issue is resolved correctly on the first attempt.

  • Regular maintenance: Implement a scheduled drain maintenance program to keep drains clean and clear of debris.
  • Proper waste disposal: Avoid flushing or rinsing items that can cause blockages, such as grease, food scraps, wipes, and other non-biodegradable items.
  • Tree root management: Regularly inspect and trim tree roots that may intrude on drain pipes.
  • Professional installation: Ensure that all pipes are installed correctly by hiring a qualified professional to avoid incorrect installation that can lead to blockages.
  • Rainwater management: Implement proper rainwater management systems, such as gutters, downpipes, and stormwater drains, to prevent stormwater from entering the sewerage system during heavy rains.
  • Educate occupants: Educate residents or tenants on proper usage and disposal of items that can cause drain blockages.
  • Avoid DIY fixes: Refrain from using chemicals or DIY methods to clear drains, as these can often be ineffective or even cause further damage.
  • Regular inspections: Conduct regular inspections of drain pipes and address any potential issues promptly before they become major blockages.
  • Install drain guards: Use drain guards (such as a sink strainer) to catch debris and prevent it from entering the drain.
  • Seek professional help: If you notice any signs of a potential blockage, seek the assistance of a professional plumber to assess and address the issue promptly.

In the majority of cases, our advanced and specialised equipment enables us to locate and clear blockages without the need for digging up paving or damaging the property.

With the use of CCTV technology, we can accurately pinpoint the exact location of the blockage within the pipe system. This allows us to employ targeted and precise methods to clear the obstruction and restore proper flow, without the need to disrupt the surrounding area through excavation.

Although chemical-based products and DIY solutions may provide temporary relief by addressing the immediate symptoms of a blocked drain, they often only provide superficial clearing, leaving the root cause of the blockage unresolved. This can result in the same issue reoccurring later on, leading to further inconvenience, added costs, and potential damage.

This is why it is always best to get in touch with us as soon as you notice signs of a blocked drain at your property, to avoid more hassle later down the track.

PBR Plumbing uses high-tech CCTV drain cameras to locate the source of the blockage, and drain machines or high-pressure water jetters to clear the source of the blockage. Reach out to our experienced team if you require drain cleaning in Perth.
