Blocked Drains

A blockage in a drain can result in an unclean floor, shower drain, blockage in the toilet, water leaking or in the worst case, flooding your bathroom or kitchen. If it’s a serious blockage, it should be attended to immediately by a certified plumber.

Sewer Surgeon is your drainage and plumbing experts. It is our mission to help clients with their blocked drains in Sydney.

Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining has changed the way drains are treated and maintained.

Many people aren’t inclined to think about what’s going on in the pipes beneath their homes. The vital plumbing system can result in leaks, root growth and corrosion, among other problems.

Homes and businesses in suburbs that are established are more susceptible to root ingress and corrosion because of their older age. Galvanised pipe and terracotta were used for stormwater and drainage in older houses. Even though PVC is replacing these earlier materials over time, lots of houses have them under the ground. Galvanised pipes can rust rapidly and terracotta pipes make it easier for tree roots and other debris to get into your stormwater pipes and result in obstructions.

The traditional only way for sewage backups or clogs to be completely removed from pipes damaged by a breach was to repair the damaged pipes. Relining pipes without digging is now a possibility, and will save you tons of cash.

Sewer Surgeon is a leading pipe relining expert in Sydney, providing our customers with solutions that are not just permanent, but also cost effective.

The first step of the Pipe Relining process is a high-speed drainage cleaning which utilises our industrial strength blaster technology. This is the process of cleaning the pipes in preparation for the refitting. It is not necessary to take out the pipes that are in use. Instead, we could create a strong, seamless pipe that is within the pipe’s borders that saves time and cost. There’s no digging or no mess. You get fully functional pipes.

Our epoxy lining starts as a liquid. It is then sprayed to the pipes in order to protect. After setting and hardening, the lining acts as an extremely solid new pipe that doesn’t depend on the strength of the original pipe to support it. With the new lining root intrusion, corrosion , or other problems that can impact your old terracotta and galvanised plumbing systems will become virtually impossible to get into.

Our trenchless plumbing method is a tried and tested answer to your plumbing problems. This method will save you from the stress of landscape restorations , broken concrete, as well as the high excavation costs. Re-line, renew and restore the condition of your pipes. There is no need for digging. We are ready to help you!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe generally refers to a split, leak, break, crack or fracture in your gas or water distribution system. Sometimes the burst pipe might be evident, like a worn-out Flexi hose. Sometimes the leak is more obscure and is hidden behind walls, which can cause damage and even mould. Sewer Surgeon will assist you with any burst emergency pipe.

The busted pipes must be discovered and repaired immediately as a leak left unattended will cause significant damage to your home over time. Gas leaks, left untreated, could cause fire, poisoning and explosion.

Sometimes, it’s difficult to determine if there is a leak in the pipe. However there are a few indicators that may be a sign 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 plumbers with licences are highly adept at identifying leaks in gas and water throughout Sydney. We use the most up-to-date tools such as thermal imaging and electronic hearing devices, nitrogen gas testing devices as well as gas-smelling technology. You can be confident that your house is safe by using our leak detection techniques.

Leaking Taps and Toilets

Have you ever thought about the reason why your taps always leak? The water that enters your home is pushed to its limit, which can lead to leakage. Water can seep through when the seals aren’t sealed enough and result in dripping.

We are able to assist with any kind of faucet, shower leakage or toilet issue. Over our time, we’ve experienced every leak imaginable and have yet to come across a leak that we were unable to repair. Our skilled plumbers can assess your situation and recommend the most effective solution for you.

If the toilet, tap, or shower needs to be replaced in an emergency, we’ll work closely with you to identify the most appropriate replacement. As with all of our services, we use professional-grade materials of the highest quality with a longstanding warranty. It is this way you can be sure that your new item will last as long and is exactly as good as the day that you received it.

These are the top three leaks we encounter:

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

Gas Fitting

Plumbers refer to the term gas fitting to describe services like gas installation, gas leak repair, and gas detection.

Below are the services that a certified Sydney gas fitter can provide:

  • 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.
  • A Sydney gas fitter can assist you with problems with your gas cooking appliances. This includes large high-end ranges and small cooktops. We can also provide recommendations on the best appliances to suit your needs
  • A Sydney gas fitter can install or repair your gas water heater and appliances.
  • A Sydney gas fitter can help you install a new gas line or relocate a current gas line.
  • A Sydney gas fitter can complete leak investigations and repairs for all your gas services

Gas fittings can become loose, corroded or even break after many years of use. This is common in older houses as well as factories that are equipped with obsolete gas systems and appliances that put pressure on fittings. To prevent gas leaks, it is important to conduct regular inspections. You will find any potential risk or damage that may be caused by gas leaks. This proactive approach could save lives and prevent property damage.

Water Filtration Systems

Who would have thought that selecting the best water filter system for your property can be a difficult task!

You might not know that there are several filtration systems accessible. Certain systems offer more effective filters than others. Some systems are easier to use and maintain whilst others offer features that can make them more effective. It is essential to understand the features to look for when choosing the right solution for your home. Sewer Surgeon can help.

Carbon block filters are the most basic and basic kind of water filtration. This filter is commonly found in water pitchers or faucet filters. This setup is great for water filtration that is basic.

A better option is a two-stage filtering system, which includes an aeration filter and a carbon block filter that can increase the longevity of the system and its effectiveness. Three stages of water filtration are necessary for the highest quality water.

Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

Downpipes and gutters are two of the most essential parts of your roofing system. They’re not just fashionable and practical, they also shield your home from rain and Sydney’s severe weather.

Despite the vital importance they play, gutters and downpipes are frequently the least-appreciated areas that require regular maintenance and cleaning. The majority of leaks result from damaged or blocked gutters. Check your gutters at least every year, and plan a cleaning service to clean them. It is essential to check your gutters, downpipes and roof for signs of leakage before you make any roofing repairs or replacements.

While DIY methods can be useful to clean gutters, fixing damaged downspouts and gutters isn’t an easy job. It’s not easy to fix damaged gutters and downpipes that are not in good condition or have been damaged. Only a professional roofing contractor has the expertise to efficiently and safely complete the task. We also can recommend the most cost-effective solutions to help you save money.
