Plumber Langwarrin: Jamieson Court Blocked Shower Drain

Blocked Drains are one of Orbit Plumbing’s specialties. We have all the right equipment to rectify your blockages big or small. On this occasion our Plumber Somerville way “Daniel” received a call by a plumbing customer in Langwarrin who was having problems with their shower blocking. Every time they had a shower it would fill up at the bottom and it was making it very hard for them to shower as they only had a minute or 2 before the water would start overflowing over the edges of the shower base.

We sent out our Frankston Plumber and our Mornington Plumber to attend to the emergency job on the same day as we received the call. We know that it would have been very inconvenient for our customer to not be able to use her shower and we wanted to help her as soon as possible. When our Mornington Peninsula plumbers arrived they first located the Over flow relief gully which they noticed was also overflowing so there first point of call was to grab the drain cleaner and clear the blockage in the ORG which was done within about 20 minutes.

After that blockage was clear we noticed that the shower was still not going down so we called our Frankston south plumber to drop off our wet vac which we put down the shower drain and tried to suck out any foreign objects. This did not clear the shower blockage unfortunately. The next step was to climb under the house and see what was going on with the pipes underneath.

Our Langwarrin South Plumbers realized that the pipe coming off the shower trap was a galvanized pipe and we found a small inspection opening on the galvanized elbow plumbing products. This was a blessing as we have a smaller and very hardy Ridgid Drain cleaner that we were able to stick down the galvanized piping.

As you will see in the below image after using the drain cleaner down the direct shower sanitary pipe we pulled out a lot of hair from the pipe. Our Rosebud plumber tells us that these galvanized pipes become corroded from the inside and start closing in on themselves. So this is quite a problem as this used to be the pipe to use many years ago and is now causing a lot of problems for people.

In the end our customer was very happy with the result as she could again use her shower and we found and cleared not 1 but 2 blockages so she was thankful we found the second one before it caused bigger problems.
