Drains and properly designed drainage systems are an important part of any home. Not only are blockages a nuisance, they can be a plumbing catastrophe when left untreated.
Blocked drains should be attended to by a licensed Darwin plumber, as soon as possible, to help avoid extra costs and damage. A problem could escalate to more serious plumbing leaks, overflows and damage and can even damage pipes that weren’t affected in the first place.
Signs of a block drain can include:
slow to no drainage
gurgling noises in your pipes
foul odours coming from your drains
toilet water levels too high or too low.
