Plumber Rye: Drum Street Rebuilt Over Flow Relief Gully

Orbits Plumber Mornington Peninsula recently visited a property in Rye that as our customer explained their sewer was blocked and required to be cleared. Our Frankston Plumber attended the home along side and our plumbers checked out the carnage that was happening.

When we arrived we could tell that the over flow relief gully looked to be non existent as we could not find it. We decided it would be best if we used our smaller sized pipe camera and locator to enter the pipes from inside the house that we thought would most likely be priming the overflow relief gully and surely enough on the first attempt the camera located the ORG out side the laundry.

Our Somerville Plumber dug up the area that was located as the ORG and found that it was full with dirt and had been buried for quite some time.

The first idea was to get sewer machine down and use it to clear the blockage further down, little did we know that the over flow relief gully had a large crack and broken section running through the riser that needed attending to as well. As soon as we put the drain cleaner down the ORG it actually broke out the piece of earthenware that was already damaged. Since this was done we decided to keep at it with the drain cleaner as we could not do anymore damage to the pipe.

After a short while the bottom of the trap for the over flow relief gully was clear and we tested this by running a hose down the pipe and there was no sign of backing up.

Since we had located and cleared the issue we now just needed to rebuild the ORG with the correct plumbing products and bring the job back to working order. We connected a new PVC section on to the existing earthenware pipe and connected all of the loose pipes so they could primes the ORG properly once again.
