At Oakland Plumbing, we specialize in unblocking sewer and stormwater systems. We understand the frustration and inconvenience caused by a blockage, which is why we have developed a streamlined process to effectively resolve these issues.
Locate and Access
When you contact Oakland Plumbing to address a blockage, our team of experts will promptly investigate the cause and devise the best plan to clear it.
Clearing the blockage
We utilize state-of-the-art water jetting technology to efficiently remove the blockage, ensuring thorough and lasting results.
Inspect the Pipe
Once the blockage has been cleared, we take the extra step of investigating the pipework to identify any underlying damage that may have contributed to the blockage.
By identifying and addressing these issues, we can help prevent future blockages and ensure the long-term integrity of your drainage system.
We believe in empowering our customers with knowledge, which is why we take the time to walk you through how your drainage system works and explain what went wrong. We want you to make informed decisions about the best course of action for your plumbing needs, and we provide expert advice tailored to your specific situation.
Causes of Blockages
Understanding the common causes of blockages can help you prevent them in the future. In many cases, blockages occur due to damage to the pipe work. Here are some of the most common culprits:
Roots: Tree roots can infiltrate underground pipes, causing blockages and structural damage.
Collapsed pipe: Aging or poorly maintained pipes can collapse, obstructing the flow of water.
Foreign objects: Items such as sanitary products, wipes, or excessive toilet paper can clog pipes.
Grease buildup: Fats, oils, and grease can accumulate in the pipes, gradually restricting flow.
Hair buildup: Hair can accumulate in shower or bathroom drains, leading to blockages over time.
Our Long-Term Solutions
At Oakland Plumbing, we believe in providing long-term solutions to prevent recurring blockages.
We offer the following options:
Regular maintenance is essential to keep your drainage system in optimal condition. Our maintenance plan includes scheduled inspections and cleaning to proactively address any potential issues before they become major problems.
In cases where the pipe damage is extensive or beyond repair, we offer pipe replacement services. Our experienced team will efficiently replace the damaged pipes with durable and reliable materials, ensuring a long-lasting solution.
Pipe relining is a much more thorough alternative to pipe replacement. We use advanced techniques to insert a new lining into the existing pipe, effectively sealing any cracks or leaks. This method restores the functionality of the pipe without the need for extensive excavation.
The Value of CCTV Inspections
At Oakland Plumbing, we understand the importance of utilizing technology to provide the best service to our customers. Unlike many other plumbers who either lack the necessary equipment or charge exorbitant fees for CCTV inspections, we include this service at no extra cost.
CCTV inspections are crucial in identifying hidden issues within your drainage system. By inserting a small camera into the pipes, we can accurately assess the condition, locate blockages, and detect any potential damage. This allows us to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your plumbing system and make informed decisions about the necessary repairs or maintenance.
To enhance our CCTV inspections, we also utilize pipe locating technology. This advanced system enables us to precisely determine the location and depth of any breakages, inspection openings, or blockages. By eliminating guesswork, we save both time and money while providing you with a clear picture of your plumbing system.
