A Blocked Drain Emergency in Curl Curl

Kyle had been living in Curl Curl for six years and had never needed a Plumber. It was almost a point of pride.

He’d broken his electrician streak last year, but only because he wasn’t game enough to fiddle with live wires.

So, when his toilet began to get slow as it flushed and the water started rising higher and higher, Kyle got out his plunger and gave it a go. He worked the plunger for over half an hour, attempting to clear the stubborn blockage. When he flushed the toilet, it still rose extremely high and drained away incredibly slowly. He took a few deep breaths and began plunging again. After a few more goes it became clear the toilet wasn’t going to unblock. Kyle glared at the gleaming porcelain. He’d finally met a plumbing problem he couldn’t beat.

Kyle found the local Curl Curl Plumber online. He’d heard good things from a couple of mates about the Plumber as well, so he thought he’d give the Curl Curl Plumber a go. The Plumber was there on time, as Kyle had been told the Plumber would. The Plumber had a look at the toilet, gave it a quick plunge to test it, before suggesting that he try using his high pressure water jetter. Interested, Kyle agreed and watched as the plumber set it up.

“What about an electric eel?” Kyle asked.

“The Jetter is more efficient,” the Plumber explained as he worked, “it uses water to cut through the blockages. It’s gentler on the pipes and creates less mess. It’s more efficient too, clearing out more tree roots if they’re what are causing the blockage.” He turned the engine on and the questions had to be put on hold as the roar of the jetter filled the air.

The Curl Curl Plumber worked the jetter for half an hour, pushing through blockages, before pausing to pull the jetter out and switch directions. He then kept going in the other direction, though not for as long. The problem was with various sections of the old earthenware pipe cracking, allowing tree roots to get in. The best way to fix it would be to replace the drainage with PVC pipes. Kyle didn’t think that was necessary at the moment, especially now he’d seen how the jetter worked … maybe next time he could hire one himself!

He assured the Curl Curl Plumber that if it happened again and he wasn’t able to fix it, the Curl Curl Plumber would definitely be the one Kyle would call.
