With the wet week Brisbane is currently having and it being the first major rain of the season it is inevitable that downpipes and storm water drain are going to have blockages.
When it comes to unblocking a blocked drain there are 100's of DIY methods and home remedies and whilst some of these may work in very particular cases, some of them are downright dangerous and have the potential to damage your pipes and injure yourself or any future plumbers working on your drains.
Michael Bloomberg, former mayor or New York and founder of Bloomberg L.P. a world renowned financial services and media company has stated “Today if your kid wants to go to college or become a plumber, you've got to think long and hard,” during a meeting of the Wall Street trade group SIFMA on November 10th.
As all of our plumbers will tell you unblocking a clogged toilet is not a nice job. Any time you have to put something down the drain to unblock it such as a drain snake or a plunger there is a potential for the mess of water and bacteria to get all over you.
