Expert blocked sink clearing and waste pipe cleaning
We make every effort to unblock your sink as thoroughly as possible using the latest equipment, but if other waste outlets in the house or office are blocked or sluggish, you may have one of the following issues:
Clogging material – You should never dispose of solid food, soap pieces or other hard materials down your sinks. Much of this material will be caught in the trap or S-bend under the sink, but some will find its way to shared waste pipes, blocking flow from toilets, showers, and other drainage points. That’s why it is always good practice to use a removable sink strainer, which can catch larger lumps of waste before they enter the drain.
Tree roots – Roots commonly enter underground drains and, depending on tree species, can re-grow into a broken pipe or pipe joint within 3 to 6 months. We can cut through them using our high-pressure water jetters which we carry on all of our service vehicles and then flush out the pipe.
Broken pipe – Broken edges in a drain pipe break can catch waste material from your sink, resulting in repeated blockage until the drain is repaired. In these cases we recommend our drain repair and/or replacement or trenchless pipe repair services. We can also arrange to carry out a drain camera inspection using our CCTV cameras.

How to temporarily unblock a sink
If your blocked sink is causing major inconvenience and must be cleared right away, there are a couple of things you can try to clear it temporarily before the plumber arrives:
Cleaning chemicals: Baking soda and caustic soda work by reacting with food and other substances and dissolving them. They must be used with care as they can burn the skin and lungs, and are usually not very effective against harder material such as food scraps.
Plunger: The rubber suction cup on a plunger creates a high-pressure burst of air which is sometimes effective in moving clogging material along the pipe, making it easier to flush away. Place the plunger over the sink drain hole and pump 3 – 6 times. This method usually only works for minor blockages such as tea leaves or light food matter.
Remember that following these steps will make it appear that the problem has been fixed permanently, but in most cases, it will re-occur the next day.
