Toilet Blockage

Toilet Blockage Unblocked by Jim’s Plumbing

Here at Jim’s Plumbing, we are blocked toilet specialists. Because we deal with blocked toilets on a daily basis, not only are our plumbers incredibly experienced, they are equipped with state of the art equipment including hydro jet machines, rigid machines and drain cameras allowing your blockage to be resolved quickly and competently!

Blockages such as these present a real challenge, even for the most skilled and educated of plumbers! In one instance, not only did we have to use our hydro jet drain cleaning machine to clear a drain which was full of roots, but we also had to replace the toilet system, due to the fact that all of its internal rubbers had perished and the flow valve had seized. This old toilet fell into disuse, but Jim’s Plumbing were able to get it back in action. This is a common problem in toilets that are not used for an extended period of time.

Jim’s plumbing are able to clear even the worst of blocked toilets, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When clearing this particular drain, the startling discovery was made that the whole internal clay pipe was full of roots. It was a matter of putting one of our drain machines in and out and extracting large clumps of tree roots until eventually the drain was freed! Then, it was important to put the drain camera down the drain in order to visualise what had allowed the problem to become so severe. Our camera footage allowed us to demonstrate to the customer that there was extensive cracks and breaks in the clay pipes. Our plumber provided a quote to replace the affected pipes. This would result in a long term solution for the customer as with a problem this severe, it is likely that these roots will quickly grow back and the same blockage will reoccur.

After a considerable amount of time and effort on the part of our expert plumber, we left our satisfied customer with a toilet that had been restored to operational status!

All that remained for him to do was to remove the years of dirt from the system, and the toilet could resume normal use.
