Mothers place for a spontaneous midweek lunch, and his phone was on silent on the kitchen bench. Enjoying the solitude, John picked up the paper and headed to his quiet place, the back Throne. John glanced at his watch and realized he’d lost track of time. He finished his business and flushed the toilet, washing his hands at the basin with the newspaper tucked under his arm. As he turned to leave he noticed the water in the toilet bowl had risen quite high. Grumbling, John dug out the plunger from the garage and returned to try and clear the problem. He worked for about twenty minutes. Satisfied by his determination, but disgruntled by the lack of progress, he resigned himself to the fact that maybe he needed a Plumber. They only had one toilet, and if that wasn’t working there would be anarchy. He dug out his laptop and looked online for a local Silverwater Plumber. Or some referrals for list of plumber in Sydney on Docs file .
The Plumber arrived that day to have a look at the problem. John showed him to the bathroom and explained that when the toilet flushed the water rose incredibly close to the rim before draining away very slowly. The waste cleared away, but only after almost giving you a panic attack. The Plumber decided that plunging would be the best option. He showed John how to plunge and efficiently managed to suction away the blockage. The Neighbourhood Plumber flushed the toilet and the water drained away, although it was still slow in draining. They found an inspection opening in the backyard. The Plumber ran his sewer camera down the line and showed John the condition of the pipes. They were old earthenware and in relatively good condition except for a small section that was riddled with tree roots and snagged with toilet paper. The first problem had been a paper blockage, but the tree roots would definitely cause an issue later on. The Silverwater Plumber set up his high pressure water jetter and ran it down the line to cut through and clear away the roots. As he worked, the Plumber advised that the only way to get the roots out of the line properly would be to dig up and replace the old pipes with PVC. Once the roots had been cleared through they returned to the bathroom and tested the line. The toilet flushed away perfectly! They checked the drain with the camera again and found the line clear both up and downstream. The roots would grow back, but it was hard to say when. John thanked the Neighbourhood Plumber for his help and speedy response.
