7 Tips to help you avoid expensive plumbing drainage repairs in Canberra

  1. Always check to see if your plumber has a Canberra Plumbing Licence. If in Queanbeyan the plumber will need a NSW plumbing Licence.
  2. Look for online reviews to see what kind of reputation your plumber or drainer has.
  3. A cheap quote to clear blocked drains does not result in a cheap job. Be wary of plumbers that say it only takes half an hour to properly clean a drain. A little extra time spent on cleaning the drain can save you a fortune in unnecessary repair bills.
  4. Be careful of what you put down your drains. Some things like toys, concrete, plaster and sprinklers are very hard to remove with drain cleaning machines.
  5. Keep leafs, sticks, rocks, tan bark, and toys clear from your roof gutters and stormwater pits.
  6. Get all new drainage and renovation work approved at the time it is being done. Leaving approvals to a later date can increase the cost 20 fold.
  7. You can get a drainage plan from council or the ACT government. So don’t install hot water systems, garden sheds or air conditioning units over the top of your drains.

Did you know

Following the above tips will save you a lot of heartache and a lot of money. Blocked sewer and stormwater drains can turn into urgent plumbing issues very quickly. Most blocked drains and blocked toilets are the result of tree roots and broken pipes. Other common causes of blocked drains are wipes, paper towels, sanitary napkins and tampons, toilet friendly kitty litter and cooking grease. Newer toilets will also block up because of the more complex connections to the drainage systems. Even though many plumbers have drain cleaning machines, most plumbers are not expert drain cleaners. Some Canberra plumbers will pretend to try and clear your drain and then try to convince you that you need an expensive repair job.
