Unblock Pipes – Auckland

Why do pipes get blocked?

There are a number of pipes that run under and around your house that you don’t see. Water enters and exits your home for every sink, basin, shower, toilet, bidet, laundry tub, washing machine and dishwasher you have. There are also drainpipes and downpipes that carry the water from your roof and gutters.

There are a lot of places where pipe blockages may occur.

Pipes and their interconnected drainage and plumbing systems can get blocked for a number of reasons:

  • objects flushed down the toilet that shouldn’t be there
  • large objects that fall down the sink or drain
  • hair trapped in the shower drains
  • a waste disposal unit that’s not working properly
  • debris stuck in the pipes further along in the drainage system
  • old or damaged pipes where water isn’t flowing freely
  • faulty joints or broken pipes caused by movement of the surrounding ground or building
  • tree roots in the pipes

Unblocking – Unclogging a Blocked Pipe

If you have a blockage in your pipes or drainage system, the best thing to do is call in a professional plumber or drainlayer – like your friendly team at Sumich Plumbing & Drainage.

If the location of the blocked pipe or the cause of the blockage isn’t clear, we have specialist closed circuit (CCTV) equipment and expertise that enable us to see far into your drainage system and diagnose the problem.

If there are tree roots interfering with your plumbing and pipes, we can use either high-pressure water or our specialist root cutting bladed machinery to clear the block pipes.
