Blocked Drains


Need help with your Blocked Drains?

Do you have blocked or broken drains and sewers?

O’Brien Electrical and Plumbing Lismore are your local specialists to the rescue! Whether it’s a blocked sewer, toilet, kitchen sink, basin or stormwater line, we offer great solutions to fix your blocked plumbing problems.

We serve residential, industrial and commercial clients across Lismore and surrounding areas including Casino, Kyogle, Ballina and Byron Bay. With over 30 years of plumbing maintenance experience and state of the art drain clearing and inspection equipment, we can quickly diagnose and fix your plumbing issues.

The team at O’Brien Electrical and Plumbing Lismore use specialised plumbing equipment to search and locate the cause of your blockage and then clear the problem for you. We have invested in sophisticated high-pressure water blasters for clearing drains, removing tree roots, grease, debris and obstructions from sewer and stormwater piping to make easy work of clearing blockages. We are also equipped with CCTV drain cameras that allow us to view and locate the exact cause and position of a piping problem. This means that we only need to repair or replace the damaged area, helping to minimise costs for our customers.

Did you know?
Common drain blockages such as blocked sinks and bathroom pipes are most often caused by a build-up of organic materials such as grease, hair, soap scum, food particles, paper and cotton.

No blocked drain plumbing job is too small or too big for us. Whether you have a blocked drain, cracked piping or roots in your drains, we have high-end equipment suited to every plumbing issue imaginable.

High-Pressure Water Jet Cleaner

High-Pressure Water Jetting is the most effective way of cleaning the most stubborn blockages. Anything from kitchen grease to paper towels, sanitary items to tree roots are no match for our water jetting equipment.

Using this method, a high-pressure jet of water is sent into the stormwater or sewer line. By using different cutting heads, our Lismore plumbers can utilise the jet to break down roots, debris, grease and sludge. This is then flushed out of the line, making it completely clear and useable once again.

Regular preventive maintenance is key to keeping drain lines flowing freely. Plumbing in restaurants and other commercial establishments typically require frequent high-pressure water jet cleaning to remove mineral deposits, grease build-up, sludge and debris that accumulate in lines. Some businesses may require just one or two cleanings annually while others benefit from monthly or quarterly pipe cleanings. Cleaner pipes mean fewer emergency service calls and less down time, saving you money.

Although a high-pressure water jet is a highly effective method of pipe clearing, it cannot completely guarantee the removal of the root growth permanently. This is because breakages in your pipes may allow for further root growth. These breakages can only be detected using a CCTV drain camera.

Using the CCTV drain camera, our team can precisely determine the root cause of your blockage and can even provide the footage for you to view.


CCTV Camera Pipe Inspections

O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Lismore provides CCTV drain line inspections to enable you to make informed decisions about your pipeline and drainage systems.

With the use of a CCTV drain camera, our plumbing team can locate the source of a blockage or problem in your stormwater or sewer lines.

This usually indicates what further steps are required. Our clients are provided with footage of the inspection – enabling us to discuss the problem and ascertain whether excavation or sewer maintenance is needed.

Why choose O’Brien Electric and Plumbing Lismore to clear your Blocked Drains?

Sewage, pipe or drain blockages occur for all different reasons. Build-up can be caused by dirt, hair, grease, oil, roots, and even rust. This is why it’s important for your drains to be looked at by plumbing experts for repair and preventative advice.

While there’s a range of quick-fix products available in the market, they rarely remove the main cause of your drainage problem. However, our expert local Lismore plumbers can detect the cause and find a long-lasting solution to blocked drains and pipes.

Don’t just troubleshoot – fix the problem before it escalates – if you have a plumbing emergency, call O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Lismore. We’ll be there with a solution to all of your drainage problems.
