Blocked Toilet & Sewer

One of the most common problems we see is a clogged toilet. There could be a number of reasons for toilet blockages such as tree roots ingress, sewer leaking, or objects stuck in the toilet pipe. CCTV inspection together with jest blast is usually the way to go for blocked sewer or toilets.

Blocked sink

Kitchen & Laundry Sink

The most common causes of sink blockages are grease, food, washing waste and dishwasher feeds. Unblocking sinks is often straight forward and doesn’t require complex procedures unless there is something else wrong with the pipes.

Floor waste bathroom shower drain

Shower & Floor Waste

 Modern screen-free bathrooms can sometimes have long concealed drains with challenging accessibility. Regardless, we have the team and equipment to clear tight access shower drains and floor wastes without removing your tiles or waterproofing.

Outside drains are typically blocked by dead leaves and garden waste, soap scum, toiletries, grease, and damaged pipes. More often than not, it takes a plumber to unclog an outside drain especially if there is a tree root intrusion.

Warning signWarning Signs of a Clogged Drain

Slow Draining

Grease, hair, or even soap get stuck and cause water to drain slower. If it is taking more than a couple of seconds for showers and sinks to empty you should know there is something wrong. Take immediate action starting with home remedies like baking soda, table salt, vinegar, drain cleaners,  or plunger. If nothing works you need to call a plumber for a deeper investigation and a permanent resolution.

Smelly Drains

Stuff like food, grease, hair, and soap particles trapped in a drain for a while start decomposing and produce a bad odor. Not all stinky drains are clogged but, you need to take expert advice if the smell doesn’t go away even after you’ve tried several home remedies. If the smell is persistent it could mean a bigger problem such as a leaking or a blocked sewer.

Toilet Gurgling or Bubbling

Another clear sign of a blocked drain is that your toilet makes a gurgling sound. It happens when items are stuck inside a drain and the air is trapped which produces a funny sound. There are varying reasons for a blocked drain; sometimes it’s wipes, paper towels, kid’s shoes, or toys. More often than not, it’s an easy repair, but at times detailed investigation is required to find the cause.

The price varies significantly from job to job depending on the complexity of the problem and equipment required. Consult with one of our plumbers to get an accurate free quote.
Who is responsible for clearing a blocked drain? Landlord, tenant, or Sydney Water?
Usually, homeowners are responsible but, if a tenant has caused the blockage then they will have to get it fixed. Sydney Water is not responsible for removing a blockage from any private pipes. However, if you detect that the issue is in their wastewater pipelines, you can contact Sydney Water to get the pipes unclogged.

How long it takes to clear the drains?
Most blocked drains jobs are finished in a couple of hours. However, it totally depends on the location, access to a drainage system, or severity of the blockage. The plumber at the property will make you fully aware of the progress and what needs to be done.
Will Coca-Cola, boiling water, or lemon juice unclog a drain?
Home remedies and drain cleaning chemicals can fix minor or simple clogs. Without a professional investigation, you wouldn’t know the real cause of the problem. Hence, DIY methods could work for the short term without you knowing there is a bigger problem building up.
