What Not to Do
Never attempt to solve the problem on your own, unless you are a trained professional. The chances are high that you will just make the problem worse, which will cost you a lot more money in the long run. Don’t risk it, call a qualified plumbing technician. Equally perilous is trying to save money by employing a cheap tradesperson who lacks the skills and qualifications to perform work or your property. Sometimes they only perform a superficial fix leaving you with the underlying problem still unresolved.
Instead, call the professionals. Dr. DRiP is a professional company situated locally. We know exactly how to solve the problems that commonly afflict the local community. We provide plumbing solutions with speed and accuracy that will last for years to come.

A recurring blockage is more common than you think. These usually happen when people solve the problem themselves. They eliminate the visible problems, but the root cause of the blockage is still present. Days later, and the same symptoms have returned. It’s a homeowner’s worst nightmare.
Blockages are more complex than you think, especially when it comes to the toilet. Despite the fact that the sewerage system is in good working order, the toilet can still be blocked. Using our state of the art drain cleaning equipment, we can clear the way and fix the problem in mere minutes.
Common causes of blocked drains include:
- Silt and building debris
- Tree roots
- Faulty sewer lines
- Mischievous children placing foreign objects in the drain
We have the equipment that can eliminate any of these problems. Using a water jetter, CCTV drain camera, or the electric eel, we can detect and eliminate simple problems. In the case of tree roots or particularly difficult situations we employ our environmentally friendly cleaning agent RootX. RootX is the agent we use to destroy plant matter in your pipes whilst keeping the pipes intact.
