When purchasing your first home, it is important to do several checks before entering into a contract. This often includes a building and pest inspection, the calculation of boundaries and some even like to have a professional check for mould levels. What many people tend to forget is to have their plumbing system checked by a specialised drain expert. It can be a wise move to contact a professional team to organise an inspection of a property before anything is put in writing. It is important to visually check for any excess water that could be spotted at the base of a toilet, or built-up somewhere on the outside of the property. If there is a suspicion of a water-related issue, it is imperative to establish this before moving in. Here at Sydney’s Blocked Drains, we are able to visit the home and can thoroughly inspect the health of the pipes. This means that you can have peace of mind knowing that your first home it up to scratch or that you are able to negotiate to have any issues fixed before laying down a deposit.

Inspecting your drains
To establish the health of your pipes in the desired property, we are able to use our state-of-the-art CCTV-drain camera to get an accurate visual of the inside of your drainage system. Using this specialised piece of equipment means that we can take the guesswork out of finding a blocked or broken drain. This extremely useful tool is made of a high-definition and waterproof camera which is located on the end of a cable. This is then pushed into the drainage system and shows us a live image on our monitor. This way we are able to see if there are any areas that are experiencing blockages, or that are deteriorating, broken or may be rusty. In the case where some kind of issue is found, we suggest relaying this to the agent, so they are able to have any problems taken care of before sale.

In the case when there is a water-related issue, one of our qualified drain experts can quickly and effectively solve the problem. We do this by first establishing the issue with our CCTV-drain camera and then by removing a block with our high-pressure water jetter. Water is sent through the drainage system that will remove any blocks and will also clean the pipes. This means you can have peace of mind knowing that your pipes are in the best condition possible. When a pipe is broken and needs repair, we are able to cater this which our no-dig pipe relining method. This allows us to insert a liner inside the pipe without having to dig up the properties garden or any concrete area. This method not only takes less time but can also save money in the long run.

At the end of the day, it is important to be as thorough as possible when purchasing your first home. We highly recommend obtaining a detailed report of the location of the drainage system on the property and contacting the professionals to organise an expert drain inspection.
