Job Summary

See our privacy policy

Drains can often be dreadful to fix. The awful smells make the nature of drains a no-go area for many. As such, many would rather hire a plumber or drain specialist to take care of their blocked drains, blocked sinks, blocked toilets or shower drains.

Not to mention, it’s not a bad idea to keep an emergency plumber or drain specialist’s number up where everyone in the house can have access for unforeseen circumstances.  

Payment Options

When it comes to payment options, most drain specialists prefer the hourly rate. Different drain specialists will calculate hourly rates differently. Some tend to include travel time along with the hourly rates whereas some may exclude the travel time and ask you to pay separately for the travel cost.

When Drains Get Messy

Often times due to bad weather, lanes for drains get overflowed with water, which leads to drainage pipes getting damaged. Storm drains meant to carry away excess rain in times of heavy rain are unable to keep up. Drain rods need to be accessed in order to clean up the internal damages that drains sometimes go through.


Getting in touch with drainage companies can be one solution when your drains are acting up. Speaking to a professional in order to get suggestions can go a long way in avoiding unwanted drain situations in the long run. With the advanced level of technology, some companies may even offer you drain cameras, drain surveys or CCTV drain survey options. Drain snakes may be used to dislodge clogs.

You may be asking why should you survey drains? A drain survey helps to alert you to any kind of potential problem that may arise with your drain, such as structural issues (collapse or fracture), blockages or root ingress. CCTV drain surveys are appropriate for any type of property, whether commercial, residential, infrastructure (i.e. rail, roads, utility, etc.) or industrial.


Fortunately, a lot of the household cleaning items that are found in the shops can help you unblock a drain, unblock your toilet or clean your drain on your own. You can even go with Do it Yourself or DIY options that are easily available online but these options don’t always work and most of the times is not a long term solution.

Often times, a sink drain includes a “trap” which fills with water in order to stop sewer gasses from coming into the house. Another shared solution option suggested by drain specialists is the French drain. The French drain allows an easy channel for water flow. This is something that your drain specialist can suggest upon inspection.

Post Repair

Once the drain specialist’s work is done, always take a proper look in order to ensure the issue in hand has been resolved and the drain is working smoothly.  

It’s always a good idea to read up before and after something has been fixed around the house as it’s better to be aware than unaware about the ins and outs of your home.
