Vince helped with plunging my bathroom drain earlier, he is extremely friendly and professional in communications, explained the whole process and the prices upfront very clear, so I know what to expect. He also did an amazing work and left some useful suggestions for future maintaining. He’s a real lifesaver! Thank you!

Things that cause
 blocked drains  in your home

Learning how to clear a blocked drain may not always require the aid of a plumber, but if left too late the blockage may become more severe. There are many reasons why a drain can be blocked and awareness is key to understanding how to keep the drains in your home blockage-free.

1. Invasive tree roots

Nature is a hard beast to tame and tree roots can often be the cause of blockages in your external drain pipes. The smallest gap or crack in your pipes can be infiltrated by the roots of trees in your yard which can lead to not only blockages but leaking too. 

2. Liquids that cause a build-up

Drain blockages are often caused by a build-up of materials in the pipes that eventually become an obstruction. Certain materials being put down the drain can contribute to a blockage over time including grease, oils, soaps and other viscous liquids. 

3. Objects that cause a build-up

In the everyday use of your drains, some things can accidentally get flushed, like jewellery or small objects that can cause a blockage, but there are also things that can cause the slow build-up that will lead to a blockage. Human and pet hair, baby wipes, dental floss and personal hygiene products are some of the main causes of blocked drains in Australian bathrooms.

4. Defective plumbing work

Whether your drains have been newly installed or you are experiencing problems later on, the cause could be due to improper installation. Mistakes can happen, and whether the problems come on quickly or slowly, these mistakes can lead to the need for a qualified blocked drain plumber in Sydney.  

It is important to attend to your blocked drains quickly to avoid any further damage to your home, and with our 6-month interest-free payment plans, you can attend to emergency blocked drains right away without the stress of having to pay on the spot.

Signs that you might 
have a blocked drain 

There are several signs that can indicate that you have a blocked sewage pipe or drain in your home. Often, blocked drains are caused by a slow build-up over time so the earlier you notice the signs, the easier the issue will likely be to fix. 

Whether it’s a slow-draining toilet, blocked storm water drains or a backed-up kitchen sink that you are dealing with, it is always best to call for a blocked drain plumber in Sydney that knows how to handle the situation and can have your home blockage free in no time.  

The signs that you might be dealing with a blocked drain in your home can include:


Slow draining water

Whether it’s your toilet that doesn’t always flush perfectly or slow-draining water from your sink, you will notice that the water in your home is draining more slowly than normal. This can indicate that there is a blockage somewhere in your pipes that is preventing the natural drainage flow of water. 

Gurgling noises

If you have blocked drains in your kitchen or bathroom, you might notice that your sink will start to make gurgling sounds when the water is draining away. These noises are caused by the water trying to get past an obstruction in your drain that could lead to a blockage. 

Backing up

As your drainage problem worsens, you will notice that slow-draining water can result in your toilet or sink backing up. This is the next stage in the blocked drain process which means that your blockage is getting worse and should be attended to ASAP.

Pooling water

If you are dealing with a blocked sewage pipe or a blocked stormwater drain, you may notice that water or other types of liquid may begin pooling in areas of your yard. This is a sign that you will need the services of drainage specialists/experts to ascertain where the water is coming from and attend to the issue as quickly as possible.

Steps to resolving your
 blocked drains 

Tools of the trade

As drain-clearing specialists, we have access to a range of tools that we use to ensure that your pipes are clear and blockage free. These include:

  • Electric eels

  • Technological pipe location equipment

  • CCTV cameras to see what is happening inside your drains

  • Jet blasting equipment to clear blockages

  • Tree root treatments

With our specialist tools, our team can attend to your drainage issues in no time at all, keeping your plumbing system safe and free from any further damage. Drain-clearing work is a step-by-step process that takes experience and precision to perfect. 


Step 1 - Assessment

The process of clearing your drains begins with some investigative work to ascertain where the blockage is located and the cause of it. From there, we can decide on a course of action to clear the blockage.

Step 2 – Clearing the blockage

With the use of our specialist equipment, we will clear the blockage from your drain to free up the water flow. 

Step 3 – Checking for damage

Once the obstruction is cleared we will use our CCTV cameras to check the condition of your pipes, making sure that the blockage has not caused any further damage. 

Step 4 – Performing repairs

If damage has been caused by the blockage in your pipes, we can perform a pipe relining treatment to restore the integrity of your pipe walls, keeping them in optimum working order for years to come.
