Blocked Drains

Not dealing with a blocked drain can lead to more devastating issues than just a mere annoyance – like strong odours and visible waste flooding your property. There are some simple ways to spot when your drain may need some attention. If you notice water taking longer than usual to drain in your shower, or your toilet water level being unusually high or low, this is the best time to get in touch with plumbers with extensive experience in clearing out blocked drains quickly and safely.

Blocked Drains Experts

At Gillies Group, we understand that a blocked drain needs to be quickly attended to. There is nothing worse than overflowing drains in the backyard or bathroom. Not only are they unhygienic and smelly, but they also prevent you from relaxing and enjoying your home. Gillies Group clean more blocked drains, blocked sinks, blocked basins and blocked toilets in a year than some plumbers will clean in a lifetime. With our advanced tools like drain cameras, and our experience, we are able to provide a full range of services – from blocked drain inspections to drain cleaning and repairs.

Water Jetting

For blockages with limited access in hard to reach places, water jetting may be the most effective method to clear the clog. A high-pressure hose is fed into the drain before water is then blasted through the pipe, dissolving all the built-up fats, grease, food debris and roots. Water jetting is mostly used as a fast, cost-effective solution with minimal mess.

Drain Camera Inspection

Using state-of-the-art CCTV technology we are able to assess a blocked drain to determine the cause of the blockage without the need to excavate. A flexible cable with a camera and light attached is fed into the pipe. Live video footage is sent back to our monitors allowing us to accurately locate a cause without the need to excavate. By analysing the footage we can then determine whether the drain requires repairs.

Drain Repairs

Our experienced team of licensed plumbers are equipped and ready to sort repairs needed on any drain in residential properties all across Perth, north and south of the river. We arrive on scene with all the necessary tools and equipment needed to assess the problem and offer the most affordable, effective solution. Whether it’s a damaged pipe or a blocked drain, we’ll have your house’s plumbing in order with minimal fuss and mess.

Clearing Roots in Drains

Blockages caused by tree roots is one of the most common causes of a blocked drain. It is highly necessary to remove these blockages before they start affecting your entire plumbing system and result in a more extensive and costly repair. Gillies Group is fully equipped to exterminate and remove roots in drains quickly and efficiently using a high-pressure jet or cable machine, and without the use of chemicals.
