Johannesburg blocked drain

Johannesburg blocked drain unclogging

Johannesburg blocked drain cleaning is a regular request we get. It is so because of the sheer volume of people in Johannesburg well over a million. Apart from that fact, many suburbs have old and damaged sewer systems. Many suburbs are experiencing a boom with many young couples with toddlers that experiment with soft toys down the toilet. Making things even worse is bad habits people have in the area resulting in blockages. We have a field day every day in the area dealing with blockages. A new adventure every day is what we joke about in the office. We have seen it all and if we say that we mean it.

Blockages in Johannesburg

Water overflowing out of your drain is a clear sign that you have a blocked drain. The worst thing to deal with is the bad smell and water that does not recede. On the other hand, Methane gases that get released by a blocked drain are highly toxic and can cause long-term or permanent damage. Just having the thought about putting up with the bad smell and the irritation of filthy water that does not recede is bad enough. Therefore it is bad not to unblock your drain not just because of the smell and unwanted stress but also for your health. We have seen so many outside toilets that have been left blocked for weeks on end. This causes parasites and bacteria to breed which is not a good idea in the times we are living in.

Blocked toilet in Johannesburg

A blocked toilet in Johannesburg adds tremendous amounts of frustration and embarrassment for people in Johannesburg. Especially when you have visitors over. During lockdown times with COVID, it is even worse as it adds to a very unhygienic scenario and you need to keep your health in tip-top shape. Worst of all when you have a compounded blockage and your toilet becomes a brown Fontaine. Any sane person’s nightmare will last a lifetime. We have cleaned many of those too. We also sanitize when we are done to ensure good health during these perilous times. That is your tip don’t flush, dental floss, pads, tampons, cigarettes, big balls of toilet paper, wet wipes, soft toys, hair, and any other items except human waste down the toilet.

Blocked sewer in Johannesburg

Blocked sewer in Johannesburg is one of the jobs we love doing. Excitement is when you see the water receding after a good cleaning. Many properties in Johannesburg have big trees adding to blockages in the area like the trees in Auckland Park for example. Many places like Mellville have broken and damaged sewer lines. We can write books about our experiences and interesting blockages we have come across. If the residents in Johannesburg avoid flushing stuff they should not, they will save a lot of money on unnecessary drain cleaning. The job is exciting and we don’t complain.

Blocked bath in Johannesburg

Blocked bath in Johannesburg is common for various reasons. We will look at the reason later lets first look at some handy tips to avoid one of these. Simply put don’t allow hair to flow down the bath trap. Hair flowing down the bath trap easily gets stuck in the p-trap of the bath and thus causes a blockage. I have personally not had a blockage because I use a sieve to stop hair from flowing down my bath trap. When you do get stuck with a blocked bath you can plunge it. Do remember if you do plunge the bath trap, a lot of the pressure will be lost through the bath overflow. Closing the bath overflow is somewhat challenging, however. We have the expertise and tools to open in no time. However, it is best to simply avoid it altogether.

Blocked shower in Johannesburg

A blocked shower in Johannesburg is avoidable with ease. Here is the trick. Install a sieve on the shower trap and it will catch all the hair follicles you will exfoliate when taking a shower. Mostly it is the hair that gets stuck in the shower trap and waste pipe that causes blockages. Remember all sort of nasty bacteria and parasites that is potentially harmful to humans are lurking in the p-trap of your shower. If you just plunged the living daylights out of it and managed to open your blocked shower remember to thoroughly disinfect it.

What our client say

Blocked sewer line cleaning on a Thursday evening prevented us from having an uncomfortable Friday because we could not handle the stench anymore.

Blocked sewer line cleaning

Blocked sewer line cleaning is a service we got from Plumb A Nator on Thursday evening. We slowly started smelling an odor on Wednesday evening, but we thought nothing of it. On Thursday it developed into a more severe smell.

Being customed to be in the house during the lockdown we did not really investigate what the cause was. However, during the course of Thursday afternoon, it developed into something very serious. We investigated and found that the drain was badly blocked.

We found Plumb A Nator on the internet and we contacted them. A lady that was very helpful answered and assisted us by gathering some information. She asked us what our address was and how long the drain was blocked. She stayed in contact with us throughout the whole ordeal.

The plumber arrived and he quickly investigated the blockage. He informed us that it was our mainline that was blocked. The toilets in our house were busy backing up and we were not even aware of it. He flushed the toilet and showed us that the toilet was draining slowly.

He offered us a free quotation and seeing the price we immediately responded with yes please help us. The plumber with the help of some of his staff used a machine and the drain was flowing freely again. After he was finished he also disinfected the area and the smell was gone.

He then told us that we should not be so worried about the smell. but rather about the parasites and bacteria that were spread by the drain. I can honestly say that these guys knew what they were doing and I will recommend them to anybody. This whole ordeal played out on a Thursday evening and we are so grateful that they could help us.

A burst pipe in Randburg was repaired saving us a lot of potential water damage over the weekend. We can only thank you for this great service on a Sunday evening.

We arrived home from a friend after lunch. To our surprise shortly after arriving, a soaked staircase carpet. The sound of water running. A horror to say the least. What a disaster and that on a Sunday late afternoon. We rushed up the stairs to find that the water came from the upstairs bathroom ceiling.

Calling the plumber in Randburg

Calling the plumber in Randburg is no easy job as we struggled to get one that is available. Fortunately for us, we came across Plumb A Nator that answered the call and actually came out to us. We were so relieved and impressed to see the plumber pull up in the driveway. Shortly afterward he had the situation under complete control. He closed the water mains and repaired a burst pipe in the ceiling. What a relief. All of this after we got a free call-out fee and a free quotation. He was so kind to also clean the work area after he did the repair for us.
