From chaos to clean: Pinnacle Plumbing’s emergency drain unblocking services in Melbourne

June 20, 2023

Blocked drains can quickly turn into a homeowner’s worst nightmare. They disrupt daily routines, cause unpleasant odours, and even lead to water damage if left unattended. In such situations, having access to reliable emergency drain unblocking services becomes crucial. One such trusted name in Melbourne is Pinnacle Plumbing, offering efficient solutions to tackle even the most stubborn blockages.

Pinnacle Plumbing is a renowned plumbing company with years of experience in serving the Melbourne community. They specialise in providing emergency plumber. With their highly skilled team of professionals and advanced equipment, they have established themselves as the go-to choice for tackling blocked drains swiftly and effectively.

Common Causes of Drain Blockages

Accumulation of hair and soap scum

One of the leading causes of blocked drains is the accumulation of hair and soap scum. Over time, these substances can build up inside pipes and create stubborn blockages that impede the flow of water.

Grease and food debris

Kitchen drains are often susceptible to blockages caused by the disposal of grease, oil, and food debris down the sink. These substances can solidify and form clogs, leading to slow drainage or complete blockage.

Tree root intrusion

Tree roots seek out sources of water, and unfortunately, underground drainage pipes can be an attractive target. As tree roots grow, they can infiltrate pipes, causing blockages and even pipe damage.

Foreign objects and debris

Sometimes, objects accidentally find their way into drains, causing blockages. These can include sanitary products, toys, small household items, or excessive amounts of toilet paper. Such objects hinder the smooth flow of water, resulting in blocked drains.

Signs of a Blocked Drain

  • Slow draining sinks and showers
  • Gurgling noises in the pipes
  • Foul odours emanating from drains
  • Overflowing or backing up of water

Understanding Pinnacle Plumbing’s Emergency Drain Unblocking Services

Highly trained and experienced plumbers

Pinnacle Plumbing takes pride in its team of highly trained and experienced plumbers. They possess the expertise to handle all types of drain blockages, employing their knowledge to identify the root cause and implement effective solutions.

Advanced equipment and technology

To provide top-notch drain unblocking services, Pinnacle Plumbing utilises advanced equipment and technology. They employ high-pressure hydro jetting, drain rods, and other specialised tools to dislodge and remove blockages efficiently.

Efficient Drain unblocking techniques

Pinnacle Plumbing employs efficient and effective drain unblocking techniques. Their skilled plumbers assess the situation and determine the most appropriate method to tackle the blockage. Whether it’s using drain rods to manually remove the obstruction or employing hydro jetting to clear stubborn debris, they ensure a thorough and lasting solution.

The Process of Emergency Drain Unblocking

Initial assessment and diagnosis

Upon arrival, Pinnacle Plumbing’s experts conduct a comprehensive assessment of the blocked drain. They inspect the affected area, identify the cause of the blockage, and determine the most suitable approach for unblocking the drain.

Clearing blockages with drain rods or hydro jetting

Once the cause of the blockage is identified, Pinnacle Plumbing’s plumbers proceed to clear it using appropriate methods. For simpler blockages, drain rods are used to manually dislodge the debris. In more complex cases, hydro jetting is employed, which involves using a high-pressure water jet to flush out the blockage and restore normal flow.

Inspection with CCTV cameras

To ensure a thorough resolution and identify any underlying issues, Pinnacle Plumbing utilises state-of-the-art CCTV cameras. These cameras are inserted into the pipes, allowing the plumbers to inspect the entire system and pinpoint any potential damages or future blockage risks.

Preventive measures to avoid future blockages

Pinnacle Plumbing understands the importance of preventing future drain blockages. Once the blockage is cleared, their experts provide valuable advice on proper drain maintenance. This may include tips on disposing of waste, regular cleaning techniques, and the use of drain guards to catch potential debris. By following these preventive measures, homeowners can minimise the risk of recurring drain blockages.
