NSW, Australia (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Blame it on the weather.
While some scientists and politicians argue that climate change and global warming are hoaxes, Australians are experiencing the devastating effects of the twin issues through massive shifts in the weather recorded in recent years.
Following periods of intense heat, torrential rains cause flood, wreaking havoc on agricultural products, commercial goods and human life. Another unforeseen effect of the shift in weather pattern that has emerged are blocked drains. Sydney based plumbing company, Jedi Plumbing, notes that heavy downpours put a significant amount of stress on pipes and drainage systems which can extend to a home's driveways and foundations. Also affected are gutters, down pipes, sewage and septic systems.
As a massive amount of water seeps into the soil, the ground where pipes are placed shift their position. This causes unnecessary pressure on pipes which can lead them to collapse or crack. Collapsed dirt and debris can cause blocking, or worse, undermining, once they enter a pipe. Undermining can cause a building or a home to move and can be costly to rectify. Prolonged rains can also damage septic tanks buried in the ground as well as blocked storm water lines. Septic tanks are placed underground. As water continues to seep, it can cause potential damage to septic tanks. On the other hand, leaves and debris can be trapped into down pipes which can lead to blockage as they continue to build up.
At the first sign of a blocked drain, Jedi Plumbing advises homeowners to call in the experts to prevent further damage to the property. However, they caution against choosing just any plumber. A typical Sydney plumber would use an Electric Eel to rectify such problems. However, this method can put unnecessary stress on pipes which can damage them, adding unnecessary expense to the homeowner.
"We know how stressful an overflowing toilet or sewer can be. That is why your drainage issue becomes our priority, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We use the latest specialised equipment including high pressure jetting machines, pipe locating devices and CCTV equipment," a representative from Jedi Plumbing said.
The company's Occupational Health and Safety-trained technicians use the latest specialised equipment like high pressure jetting machines, pipe locating devices and CCTV equipment to resolve plumbing issues with minimal mess and fuss.
Established in 2009, Jedi Plumbing has built a reputation as the go-to plumber Northern Beaches residents can rely on. The company prides itself with fast, friendly and reliable plumbing services which are available to homeowners 24/7.
