Blocked Drain in Hurstville

The preparations for the lunchtime rush were hectic to say the least. The shop would be full of hungry customers and the staff were busy chopping up ingredients to have readily available for the lunchtime chefs. There were pots of fresh stock beginning to boil away for all of the lunchtime soup orders, Jenny was busy making spring rolls and Charlie was washing the trays from the oven.

The lunch rush began and the staff in the shop and the kitchen were flat out, today was one of the busiest days. The preparation staff were busy topping up all of the containers for the chefs all the while piling up loads of washing for the afternoon cleaning team.

By the afternoon, the shop had become quiet and the lunchtime rush was over. Once the cleaning crew had cleaned up from lunch, the shop would start preparing for the evening shift. Charlie was very busy all of the dishwashers were full and had started their cycles. He was washing up the bulkier items that were used by the preparation crew. He drained the sink and found that all of the water didn’t empty out.

The kitchen staff had a plunger that could help to free whatever was stopping the water from draining from the sink but it was still very slow to drain. Considering it was Friday and they had a function on Saturday night there would be a lot of washing up to do over the weekend.

They had a local St George Area Plumber called Your Neighbourhood Plumber Hurstville who has cleared their drain before. Charlie called the Hurstville Plumber who attended the job later in the afternoon.

The Hurstville Plumber said that there was a blockage in the sink and that he would try and clear it and he would clear the trap as well and check for anything that was stuck in the drain that could be causing the blockage.

He was able to remove a large amount of vegetable matter, rice and noodles that had caused a blockage in the sink. He cleaned out the trap and also used the hand eel to ensure the blockage was cleared then reassembled the sink.
