Blockage in Fairfield After Hours
A client called Gallant Plumbing after hours with a stormwater blockage in Fairfield. We arrived on site as quickly as possible to cater to the clients needs.
Firstly, our best Melbourne plumber notices the stormwater is not draining away. The client showed our best plumber the grates in front of their garage and they were overflowing and flooding the garage. At the end of the grate is a small 300mm pit that is connected with the main stormwater line.
Our Melbourne plumber began using the sewer machine to attempt to clear the blockage. After running 3 lengths of cable down the stormwater pipe, our plumber found another pit in the bin area. Our best Melbourne plumber started pulling out all of the cables and found that it is full of tree roots. As a result, our best plumber began moving all of the gear to the newly discovered pit and attempted to unblock the line from there.
Continuing on, our Melbourne plumber got 3 and a half cables down, however the cables became stuck and did not want to move any further. Following this, our plumber moved to the road where the stormwater discharges from the property and works upstream. On the first go, our best Melbourne plumber pulled out lots of tree roots pointing to a break in the stormwater.
To prevent the garage from overflowing again, our Melbourne plumber got a submersible pump and dropped it into the one pit that was discovered. As a result it helped get water out of the system.
Finally, our plumber recommended a CCTV inspection to locate the broken pipes and another pit. From there we can clear it and quote to repair all of the damaged pipes.
