The cost charged by our Melbourne plumbing service varies depending on the extent of blockage and the types of service you need. If it’s a big job, then you’ll need more plumbers compared to a small project that doesn’t require digging.

The workforce plays a part in deciding the cost, which is directly proportional to the problems with your plumbing system. It would be best to contact us via email or the "call us" option available on the company website to get a quote.

Often the initial cost and final cost may vary if additional problems come up while clearing blocked drains.

Peak Season For A Plumbing Service

Melbourne is the busiest during summer, given that water usage is high when it comes to blocked drains. But it’s during the other months, due to the frequent thunderstorm and heavy rainfall is when your plumbing system is the most vulnerable.

Usually, after a big shower, a stormwater drain needs to be looked at, leading to frequent calls for maintenance. Sometimes, if the blockage is significant the stormwater drain might break, flooding your property.

During winter, the problems are fewer, but you may face issues with hot water systems. So, apart from drain cleaning, our Melbourne plumbing teams get called to repair hot water lines and hot water systems, which might spiral into something serious if not remedied.

Fixing A Leaking Drain Pipe

There are chances that the pipeline may burst if the blockage is severe. So, your first job would be contacting our team of experienced plumbers and have them come over to investigate. While the plumbers are on the road, you can locate the problem by looking for the tell-tale signs of leakage.

Once the plumber arrives, there are four primary steps to diagnose the issue - unblocking, inspecting, repairing, and checking. Instead of digging up the pipeline, which should be the last resort to fix the drain, our professional plumbers will start by inspecting the blockage.

To deal with blocked drains, WP Plumbing has several vans, allowing our blocked drain service to carry all the necessary equipment. The plumbing team can deal with most situations and can efficiently remove the blockage. After unclogging the drain, it becomes easier to identify the source of the issue.

For the next step, a drain camera comes in handy, providing access to the interior of the pipeline. This will reveal the extent of the damage so that the team can plan the following steps accordingly.

With the help of the camera, the plumber can insert the patch into the drain pipe. However, it’s a tricky manoeuvre and requires years of experience to get right. Overall the entire procedure lasts a couple of hours, using non-invasive tools to set the patch, preventing damage to the pipeline.

All that will remain for us to do is to turn the water back on and check if the repairs are holding up. Usually, patch-relining offers a permanent solution, proving affordable and efficient, rather than relaying the pipeline.

Longevity Of Drain Pipes

rain pipes usually retain their quality for up to 15 years, but certain components last longer. A stormwater drain can withstand 20 years of heavy use because once the monsoon is 0ver, there’s no cause for concern.

On the other hand, sewer drains may need replacing once every decade because regular use means the pipes wear out quickly. It’s a lot of effort to maintain them and although you can try to do it yourself, it’s better to call our Melbourne blocked drain team to know what’s best.

Maintaining Drain Pipes

To reduce blockage and maintain the quality of previously blocked drains, our plumbing team carries out maintenance, giving the pipeline a once-over to spot problems. If the initial survey is fruitful, we will clean the drain to remove the blockage.

Even if the plumber doesn’t find a significant blockage, it would be best to remove even small debris. You never know when a scrap of plastic or broken twig may clog the entire pipeline.

Speaking of pipes, our maintenance team will advise you whether old pipes need replacing. If it’s over 20 years old, the answer will most likely be yes, so we will help plan your expenses accordingly.

Sewer Tree Root Control

Melbourne-based experts have helped us develop sewer tree root control as part of our service for dealing with blocked drains. So, citiens who have trouble maintaining their pipeline due to tree root intrusion can call our professional service for repairs and damage control.

The plumbing team will place a combination of foam pesticides inside the drain pipes to kill any root system that has been growing. Consequently, this simple technique will prevent the build-up of debris, keeping the pipeline free of blockage.

Additionally, we provide vacuum pit cleaning to clear water tanks, septic tanks and other large containers.
