Do I Need a Plumber to Unclog My Toilet?

There are home handyman tools you can use to unclog your toilet –  however, you are always best to hire a licensed plumber in Sydney regions. As expert plumbers, we see all sorts of plumbing problems and scenarios and have the experience and expertise to diagnose any plumbing dilemma.

Professional plumbers have the equipment, and know-how to fix a problem permanently. If a small problem is left or incorrectly attended to, it can cause a plumbing emergency that can result in a messy and unhygienic situation for your home. And no-one wants that!

Tools of the Trade

Sometimes tools are needed that you do not already own. A toilet snake may do the trick – it is, however, just designed to clean the immediate toilet lines and may be some distance from the main drain. Plumbers have a higher grade of tools and are experienced at unclogging drains. Trying to unclog a drain yourself can lead to the breaking of your drains, fixtures, and fittings.

If you have a clogged toilet you are best to check your other drains checked at the same time. When there is a minor clog your other lower drains can have plumbing problems as well. The bath or shower may also have a blockage. Drainage problems in the toilet can lead to sewerage coming back into your bath and shower and even your sinks.

Before you are left with plumbing problems that can affect your home and health –  and create a smelly mess-  call an experienced plumber to unblock your toilet drains.

Cabling

If the blockage is further down the line a plumber may need to use a cabling machine. These have blades which help to cut away at materials that can be blocking your lines.

A licensed plumber is recommended to unblock drains.

How CCTV Cameras Can Assist With Drain Cleaning

CCTV cameras are often used when there is a drain blockage. We can see exactly what is going on in your sewer line, which enables us to put a plan in place to fix the problem – fast! This may be repair, replacement of the pipe, or at minimum a regular cleaning of your drains to get everything moving again.

How CCTV Cameras are Used

Our expert plumbers insert a small camera into the pipes on the end of a flexible rod. The camera can be used in most pipe sizes. The camera is minute and has a high resolution. We can diagnose the problem quite quickly – sometimes in minutes. We can see if a blade will fix the issue, see oversized tree roots and more. CCTV cameras are ideal when you need a plumber for blocked sinks, bathroom plumbing and more.

Ideal for Drain Cleaning and Blockages

When you have clogged drains, this is the best time to get CCTV camera footage. You can take a look at the footage yourself and we can leave you with a copy of the recording. As expert plumbers, we can determine the scope and depth of the problem – and give you an appropriate time frame to fix it.

Accurate

Using a CCTV camera means that we find the exact location of the blockage. This means that there is less digging involved and less mess.

Cost Saving

Although using a CCTV service for drain cleaning may seem like an additional cost, it can actually save you money. When you need a plumber for blocked sinks, toilet overflow and more our plumbers can diagnose the problems quickly and can go directly to work on the exact location of the blockage. This means that there are fewer diagnoses and labor charges.
