Emergency Plumbing Services in Ashfield
When you need an emergency plumber in Ashfield, Plumbers Emergency can help you out. We operate a 24/7 emergency plumbing service, so no matter when your system has problems we will have a plumber available to fix it.
A lot of our emergency call outs have to do with strange smells coming from drains. If your drain is emitting foul odours, there are a few possible causes. It could be because of a blockage, a dry p-trap, blocked drainage vents or, in the worst case scenario, the sewer could be backing up.
The good news is that these problems can be fixed – some of them quite easily. The hard part is working out what the cause of the smell is. When you first notice the smell, try and work out if it is coming from just one drain or a number of them. This could be tricky in a room with multiple drainage points like a bathroom, but check other rooms to make sure.
If the smell is isolated to one room or drain, it is most likely either a blockage or dry p-trap. A p-trap is a curved segment of your pipes that is designed to fill up and retain some water, which blocks sewage gases from coming back up the pipe. If you run some water down and the smell goes away soon after, the problem is solved.
If the smell hasn’t gone away, you will probably need to call an emergency plumber out to Ashfield. In this case it is probably a blockage, and if you haven’t noticed your drainage slowing down then the block will be quite deep in the pipes and require a professional to get rid of.
If the smell spreads across multiple drains and rooms, you will also need to call a plumber. In this case then the best scenario is that you have blocked drainage vents. Drainage vents run up to the roof to release gases, and if they are blocked by vegetation or something else then the gas can only get out through your pipes.
If you don’t have drainage vents, or you do and they’re clear, then you have real problems. Either the sewer is backing up close to your house, or you have a very deep blockage. In either case, you need help fast.
For strange smells in the drains or any other water issue, Plumbers Emergency can get an emergency plumber to your Ashfield home fast. All of our plumbers are highly trained and equipped, and they will be able to help you no matter what the problem is.
