Drain Smoke Test

We attended to this customers home in Dunlop, Canberra to conduct a drain smoke test after they had put up with sewer smells in their bathroom and home for many years. Despite having called in other plumbing contractors, regularly cleaning their drains with bleach and regularly flushing their drains with water, the smells always came back.

Tom and Andrew conducted a smoke test on their bathroom sewer lines. This quickly identified smoke seeping out of the wall behind the vanity. Using a micro camera, we could then see in the wall cavity, the waste pipe at the bottom was not sealed and allowing sewer gasses to pass.

This advanced technology allowed us to remove a single wall tile on the wall and floor directly below the vanity. The pipe was repaired and the tiles where replaced with minimal fuss.

Our customers where estatic, as you might imagine, having lived with the sewer smells for many years.

See this video for a quick walk through of the job.

    From my first conversation with Tom, I was treated in a very professional manner. The quote I was given was fair. Nathan and Aaron were two polite young men who dealt with my plumbing problem promptly and expertly, leaving my house so clean. Excellent workmanship and customer care. I highly recommend Water Tight Canberra. Thank you!!

    We have been chasing a plumber for months in Canberra, when today we saw Water tight in their van at a neighbor. One call and the wonderful receptionist organised for Aaron to come over in his Lunch and fix our major shower blockage. What can I say, OMG!!! This is service, Aaron would not settle for anything less than perfection. Pulled the shower apart, explained in detail to me everything that was happening and found the annoying problem. A old piece of plastic off the washer stuck in the pipe. He even gave me great advice on our toilet issues and over pressure issues. Unbelievable service, more intent on fixing the problem and doing it right than ripping us off. I wholeheartedly recommend Water Tight Canberra and especially Aaron as the no 1 plumbing service in Australia.

    I arrived at my townhouse on a Friday afternoon at about 1:30 after a week away to find that the hot water service had sprung a leak during my absence. I called Water Tight and a representative (Tom) was here within an hour. After an inspection and quotation Tom undertook to replace the HWS that day and did so with two other members of staff. I was very favourably impressed with the prompt and efficient service. I would recommend Water Tight to anyone with an urgent plumbing problem.

    Water Tight provided an excellent job on 25/02/2019. They located the burst water pipe and repaired it immediately. We are so happy with the great service and the professional crew. I strongly recommend this company for any plumbing need that you have.
