Getting a blocked sewer repaired in Sydney
This is a real situation that many home owners face everyday in Sydney. You have a blocked drain or sewer pipe and need to get it repaired by unblocking the debris that is sitting inside the pipe. Although which plumber do you choose, how will they work out what is causing the blockage & how do you know they will do the most cost effective (and appropriate) repair?
It pays to do your homework and even be prepared to seek a second opinion and perhaps organise two plumbers to assess the problem.
The most common problem that we see is a lot of plumbers in Sydney will quickly clear the sewer pipe blockage and that’s it. They won’t really work out what the underlying issue is, the home owner won’t know and as long as the water can flow again then everyone is happy. This is a short term repair solution that will just come back and cost more money to repair again later.
This home owner found out the hard way, they were charged for a plumber to visit who charged one thousand, three hundred & fifty dollars but didn’t even fix the issue. It got worse, they quoted thirteen thousand dollars to do the repair. We were asked to assess the blocked drain (we’ll explain below what we uncovered) we did this, cleared the blockage and provided a quote for a long term repair for around four thousand dollars.
You have to choose a licensed plumbers very carefully, try not to get caught up in flashy websites, fake plumber sales gimmicks or cheap ‘call out fees’ – they don’t mean a lot if you don’t get the right work done or get quoted ridiculous prices to get something repaired. Every plumber at Nu-Trend has been trained to find the problem & provide a short term as well as long term repair solution to ensure the underlying plumbing problem is addressed.

How do we repair blocked pipes in Sydney?
There is no real fixed price cost to get blocked drains repaired in Sydney. If any plumber provides a fixed price over the phone – run. They have no idea about your site, your plumbing or even what the cause might be – so how could it be possible to offer a fixed price for a scope of work they can’t determine over the phone.
For most blocked drains or sewer pipes maybe it is some food debris, tissues or a small toy that can be fixed with a hand plunge – although as we explained in this example the whole plumbing system needs to be looked at with a completely different level of cost required for long term remedial repairs.
If that doesn’t work, each of our licensed plumbers are equipped with the latest inspection equipment and tools;
- CCTV digital camera pipe inspection unit
- Thermal imaging camera to inspect walls or floors for moisture
- High pressure hot or cold water jet blasting equipment
- Water leak detection tools to find leaks in walls, showers or floors
