Blocked Drains

Sewer Surgeon is composed of certified plumbers with extensive qualifications in clearing blocked drains.

A blocked drain can cause flooding in your kitchen, bathroom shower drain, or toilet. If there is a significant blockage, a professional plumber should immediately address it.

Toilets that are blocked can indicate a more serious problem. We conduct a thorough assessment of the issue when we arrive at the location. The most efficient drain clearing technology Sydney can provide is used to analyse the plumbing issue.

Slow draining pipes are another sign that your drain could be blocked. Sometimes soap, food particles and hair get stuck and build up over time. If the DIY techniques don’t work, you can contact our 24-hour emergency plumber service. Our team will be on hand to help with any drainage issues.

Sewer Surgeon is your drainage and plumbing expert. We have a line of specialists in clearing the blockages in drains. Our goal is to provide long-term drainage solutions to our customers.

Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining is a modern technology that fundamentally changed the way drains are repaired and maintained.

Most people don’t want to contemplate what’s happening in the pipes beneath their homes. Leakage, root growth and corrosion are all possible consequences of this important plumbing system. Homes in established suburbs are more likely to have corrosion or root ingress due to their old age. Older houses had stormwater lines and sewer lines made out of galvanised pipe or Terracotta. These materials have been superseded over time by PVC. However many houses are still built with these older pipes in the ground. Galvanised pipes can get rusty and terracotta pipes give tree roots easy access to your sewer lines and stormwater that can blockage.

Tradition dictates that if a pipe was damaged or became blocked, the only way to fix it was for a replacement be made. Our trenchless repair method does not require digging and will save you lots of money in the long run.

Sewer Surgeon, a Sydney-based specialist in pipe relining, offers solutions that are durable and affordable for our clients.

The initial step of the Pipe Relining process involves an extremely fast drainage cleaning process using our industrial strength blaster technology. This process prepares pipes to be relined. It is not necessary to tear out the pipes that are in use. Instead, we’ll create a seamless, sturdy pipe inside the boundaries of the broken pipe saving time and cost. There’s no digging, there is no mess, and the pipes are fully operational once more.

The epoxy lining is a liquid that is applied inside your pipes to protect them. After it has set and is hardened your lining will behave like a solid new pipe. It doesn’t rely upon the structural integrity or the age of the pipe. With the new pipe it will be nearly impossible to penetrate galvanised and terracotta pipes because of root intrusions, corrosion, and other typical issues.

Our trenchless plumbing approach is a proven solution to your plumbing problems. This approach will spare you from the hassles of landscaping restorations and damaged concrete, as well as the high excavation costs. Re-line, restore and renew your pipes. There is no need to dig. Get in touch immediately with our Pipe Relining professionals!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe is generally broken, split, break or crack in your home’s gas or water distribution system. Sometimes, the leak is concealed behind the wall, causing damage to the wall causing other problems. Sewer Surgeon is your go-to plumber when you experience an emergency burst pipe.

Bust pipes should be found and repaired immediately as a leak that is left unattended can cause significant damage to your property over time. It’s the same for gas leaks, if left unattended, can cause gas poisoning, fire, or an explosion.

Sometimes, it is difficult to identify a burst pipe. However there are a few indicators that may indicate the presence of a leak.

  • Gas smell – if you have the distinct smell of gas in your house, please call Sewer Surgeon immediately. Gas leaks should be dealt with urgently and should not be handled lightly.
  •  Mould – Mould spores can go undetected until it’s too late, spreading to various locations and causing some serious damage. If you detect mould in your house, it could be due to a burst pipe behind the wall.
  • Wall Stains – water from a burst pipe will leave discoloration on your walls and ceilings. This is a tell tale sign of a water leak and should be investigated immediately
  • Increased water bill – leaking pipes can significantly increase the cost of your water bill. If something does not look right, be sure to check with a leak detection professional.
  • Lower water pressure – pinhole leaks and fractured pipes can reduce the water pressure in your home. If your water pressure drops suddenly, it could mean a pipe has burst and started to leak. It is best to call a specialist, like Sewer Surgeon, to investigate this.

Our licensed plumbers have years of experience in detecting leaks of water or gas in Sydney. We employ the latest tools like thermal imaging, electronic hearing equipment, nitrogen gas testing equipment and gas smelling technology. All of our leak detection techniques are safe, rest assured that your home is in good hands.

Leaking Taps and Toilets

Are you wondering why your taps keep leaking? The taps could be leaking due to the constant pressure in the water supply. The seals must be airtight. The water will get through them, causing drips.

We are able to assist you in solving any tap, toilet or shower leakage issue. Through the years, we’ve experienced every leak imaginable and we have yet experienced a leak that we were not able to fix. Our plumbers are knowledgeable and can assess the issue and recommend the most appropriate solution.

  • Leaking shower base
  • Leaking Water Tanks
  • Leaking Pipes
  • Leaking Taps
  • Dripping Shower Heads
  • Leaking Cisterns

    Gas Fitting

    Gas fitting is used to describe services like gas installation, gas leak repair and gas detection.

    These are some of the services that a Sydney-certified gas fitting could offer:

    • A Sydney gas fitter can help you convert from another energy source to gas. An example would be if you decide to switch from electric to gas heating.

    After several years of usage, gas fittings can be corrosive, loose and even stop working. This is more common in older houses, factories, and those with old gas appliances and systems. Gas leaks can be averted through regular inspections and maintenance. There will be any damage or potential risks that could be caused by gas leaks. This proactive approach can save lives or prevent property damage.

    Water Filtration Systems

    You would be surprised at how difficult it can be to locate the perfect water filter that is suitable for your property.

    There are many options for filters. Each is more effective at removing specific contaminants than the others. Some systems are easier and more straightforward to use while others have better features. It is crucial to know the features you should look for to select the most appropriate solution to fit your needs.Sewer Surgeon has you covered.

    Carbon block filters are the best choice for water filtering. They are typically found in water pitchers, faucet filters, as well as other water systems. This is the perfect setup for a single stage water system that provides basic water filtering.

    This system can be upgraded to a two-stage filter system. It comprises the sediment filter as well as a carbon-block filter. This improves system effectiveness and extends its life. A multi-stage, multi-stage water filtration system is the best. It should include three filter stages to ensure that you only drink pure water.

    Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

    Your home’s roof system isn’t complete without gutters or downpipes. They’re not just fashionable and practical however, they also safeguard your home from storms and rain that Sydney experiences.

    Despite the vital role that they play, downpipes and gutters are frequently the least-appreciated areas that need regular maintenance and cleaning. Gutters that are blocked, damaged or not maintained properly can lead to leaks. A gutter cleaning service is recommended at least twice a year to inspect for debris and leaves. If you are considering an entire or even a partial roof replacement, make sure you inspect your gutters.

    Cleaning your gutters is simple using the majority of DIY tools, but fixing a damaged or broken gutter or downspout system can be a challenging task. It is difficult to fix damaged gutters, loose guttering or downpipes. Only roofing professionals know how to tackle the task quickly and effectively. We will also suggest the most cost-effective options to help you save money.
