Some basic drain clearing and maintenance tasks can be carried out by residents and homeowners, however, broken drain and pipe repair work needs to be completed by a professional licenced plumber. State legislation dictates that only qualified, licenced plumbers can carry out plumbing and drainage work in QLD. Any errors made in the repair or replacement of pipes could lead to more leaks, blockages, or sewage back-ups.
Cracked drains are a serious problem which could damage your property, pollute your soil and groundwater, as well as spread diseases. There are several reasons for cracked pipes or drains, including damage by tree roots, corrosion of metal pipes, and underground movements.
Signs your drain pipe is broken
With most drains being located underground it’s often difficult to know there’s a problem. Signs that you may have a cracked drain include:
- a foul smell
- localised wet patches
- building movement - cracks in walls or floors
- Tree or plant growing much faster than those around it
- Dirt washed away
These signs aren’t always obvious to the homeowner and often an inspection by a qualified plumber is needed to confirm what is going on in your drains.
How we can help you
Our plumbers have years of experience in fixing broken pipes and drains.
Firstly we’ll use a specialised CCTV drain camera to conduct a thorough inspection of the pipes. Should it be determined that the drain is cracked we will then decide on the appropriate measures to take to resolve the problem, depending on the seriousness and extent of the damage.
On some occasions a solution is to repair the drain from underground without digging but this isn’t always possible. In cases where the damage is severe to pipes and drains, the best option is to excavate the site and replace the damaged pipe.
