There was no way there could be another problem! Roy ranted and raged at no one in particular. The granny flat sat unassumingly behind him. It had been completed seven months ago. Before that he had gotten all his drainage systems completely replaced from the old cracked earthenware to the far more durable PVC. So how was there a blocked toilet and sink in his new granny flat?! They were the exact same symptoms that had alerted him the first time around in his own home. Roy could barely contain himself on the phone as he spoke with the Davidson Plumber who had done all the work for him. The Plumber promised to get out there that day to take a look.
Despite Roys frustration, the Davidson Plumber remained calm and friendly. He took a look at the fixtures he himself had installed and said the most calming sentence Roy had heard all week. “This is a crazy coincidence!” The Plumber exclaimed. He brought Roy to the kitchen and disconnected the waste pipe. He showed Roy the internals, which were coated in hardened oil and fat. “The hot oil poured down the sink solidified, catching the food scraps and creating a blockage. The toilet will be a simple plunge as it’s most likely a paper blockage!” As simple as that.
Roy would have a few choice words with his brother, who was living in the flat for the moment, but the Plumber was back in the good books. As the Plumber worked Roy apologised for his bad behaviour, it was inexcusable as the Davidson Plumber had always been helpful and on time. He followed the Plumber into the bathroom as the Davidson Plumber began to plunge. The Plumber worked hard plunging clear the toilet. He flushed it a couple of times once he was done to ensure the toilet was draining correctly before returning to the sink.
The Davidson Plumber had reattached the waste pipe and had poured acid down the sink hole to ensure all the debris would be eaten away. He now flushed water down the sink to get rid of the acid and broken up fat and food matter.

Cynthia slumped into the bathroom. Today had been exhausting! The bush walk had taken hours! Covered in mud, scratches and with twigs and leaves in her hair, Cynthia was dying for a bath. It had been fun, but she didn’t want to go on another bush walk for quite some time … there was no way her friends were going to talk her into it again!
She stretched gingerly over the bath tub and twisted open the hot water, leaving it to fill while she hunted out the lavender bath liquid to sooth her aching muscles. And a glass of wine! She came back with her prized loot and stopped. The liquid in the white bath was not clear. The steamy water was a cloudy brown colour.
Cynthia turned off the hot tap and headed back to the kitchen, depositing the lavender and the wine glass on the dining room table as she went. The kitchen sink was suffering the same discoloured water from the hot tap. And then she realised. It was the hot water tank. How old was it now? 12, 13 years old? Had it finally given up the ghost? Cynthia picked her phone up off the bench and searched for a local Davidson Plumber. There were so many so she called a friend instead. They gave her a number and she called, expecting to hit voice mail or an endless dial tone. It was 5pm on a Saturday, after all. Surprisingly, the phone was answered and a Plumber was dispatched!
The Plumber had a look at the still filled bath. He then made a beeline for the hot water tank. The Davidson Plumber reached his verdict quickly. The tank needed to be replaced. It was filled with rust and there was no way to fix it. Cynthia was still dying for that bath, and there was no way she could live with rusted hot water, so she agreed eagerly. Surprisingly, he said he could install it for her now if she didn’t want to wait to tomorrow. Cynthia thought her eyes were about to bug out of her head. Of course she would love it installed tonight! He was already here, after all! So the Plumber picked up a tank and returned to install it in place of the rusty old one.
While he was occupied, Cynthia drained the bath tub and splashed cold water around the edges to make sure it was clear of rust. She then heated up her leftovers from yesterday and ate dinner. Once the Plumber was done she urged him to test the bath tub. He obliged and twisted the hot tap on. Clear warm water streamed out. It began to run cold again, but only because the tank hadn’t heated it yet. Give a little bit, he assured her, she would be able to have her hot bath!
Sure enough, Cynthia came back an hour later dying for a hot bath and successfully, hot water poured out!”

Dorothy pulled the curtains closed. It was getting colder at night. Winter was definitely creeping up on them! She flicked on the lamp and proceeded into the kitchen to shut the venetian blinds. Dinner was sizzling in the oven, filling the house with the delightful aroma of baked potatoes, pumpkin and marinated roasted lamb. She stopped by the bathroom door and was about to close it to keep the heat in the main part of the house, when the sound of running water stopped her. Instead Dorothy pushed the door open. Water was spilling out from under the sink, draining down the floorwaste and pooling on the floor. She opened the door and was sprayed by cold water. She hastily closed the door and went in search of the home phone to call her local Davidson Plumber.
The Plumber arrived that night. He’d tried to help before he got there, but Dorothy hadn’t been able to turn the mini tap off to isolate the water supply and she didn’t know where her water meter was located. The Plumber got under the sink and shut off the mini taps. They were stiff, which was why Dorothy had had trouble with them. Once the water flow had stopped, the Plumber inspected the problem and found the flexible hose connection under the sink had burst from age, causing the flood in the bathroom.
While he was replacing, it he recommended servicing the mini taps as well, so Dorothy would be able to turn them off in an emergency. Dorothy agreed, and they both headed out to the front of the property so the Neighbourhood Plumber could locate and show her where the main water shut off to her house was located. They found it by her front gate, concealed by a very beautiful, but very large flowering bush. He turned the water supply off and they headed back inside. The Davidson Plumber immediately set up and got to work. He serviced the mini taps first, ensuring they were easy to turn on and off, before removing the damaged flexible hose and replacing it with a new one. Before he could turn the water back on, Dorothy requested he check the other mini taps as well.
She didn’t want a repeat of tonight! He checked the remaining mini taps. The only other issue was the taps under the sink in the toilet room upstairs. He serviced those as well, with Dorothy’s permission, before packing up and cleaning up his worksite. Dorothy couldn’t help but praise his efficiency and kindness at coming out at night! The local Davidson Plumber left just as the buzzer for dinner went off.

As the name suggests, pipe relining involves relining your affected sewer pipe. A fibreglass or cloth tube steeped in an epoxy resin is inserted into the host pipe. This creates a new pipe within the pipe, thereby removing the need to replace the affected pipe, hence the need to dig up your property. It is suitable to use with a huge range of pipes, including those made from concrete, PVC, vitrified clay, cast iron and more, ranging in size from 40mm to 600mm.
