5 Signs Your Drain is about to Block

Fix Your Blocked Drains in Sydney
  1. A gurgling sound can be heard from one of your drains. The gurgling sound is an early warning not to be ignored. It’s telling you the drain is partially blocked and it needs attention now before it blocks solid.
  2. A foul smell is coming from the sewer line. Follow your nose to the area and see what could be causing the smell. It is generally an obstruction preventing the sewer from flowing away causing the smell.
  3. Sewer is flowing everywhere from the surchage gully outside your house. Every property has a surchage gully to prevent the sewer from overflowing into your house. Call us right away so we can clean it up for you.
  4. The water in your toilet bowl rises up when you flush it. This means there is an obstruction very close to the toilet bowl. You can try and plunge the blockage to clear it. If not, we will have to clear it from outside for you.
  5. Your child has just told you that their favorite toy just fell into the toilet and was flushed away. There is a very good chance that it will block the drain. We can locate it with out robotic sewer camera and remove it for you.

Drain Issue Prevention

The fact is, the toilet is not a rubbish bin. Cotton buds, toothbrushes, toys, golf balls, jewellery and scissors are just some of the things that make their way inside drains. Use a bathroom bin to dispose of these and other bathroom rubbish such as hygiene products, wet wipes and other waste. When these objects overload the system or cause wastewater blockages, it can be expensive to repair.

If the blockage or overflow is on your property, you are responsible for any repair costs. All toilet cleaning and shower products are safe to use without affecting our wastewater system. Wet wipes may be labelled as ‘flushable’ but they don’t disintegrate like toilet paper – so they should not be flushed down the toilet. Put them in the bin instead. These items don’t help when avoiding a blocked drain in Sydney.

What Should You Do if You Encounter Blocked Drains at Your Sydney Property?

Blocked drains are seriously annoying and can cause considerable damage and inconvenience at your property.

With this in mind, we’ve created this handy guide telling you exactly what to do if you encounter blocked drains at your property.

1. Don’t Panic

Sure, it’s tempting to panic when you have a blocked toilet or drain, but resist this urge. While problems can be serious, remember that they can also quickly and easily be put right. Stay calm, and make sure you get the job done in the right way.

2. Assess the Situation

Sometimes the cause of the blockage is as simple as something becoming lodged in the drain near an opening, such as a plug hole or a toilet bowl. In such cases, it may be easy to remove the object or the blockage yourself after taking the necessary hygiene precautions. You may find that this immediately removes the issue and brings your plumbing system back to normal.

3. Call the Experts if Necessary

If the situation persists, get in touch with the experts.You can contact us at any time if you experience blocked drains on the North Shore or anywhere across the Sydney area.

Have you ever Considered Relining your Blocked Drain?

An alternative to pipe replacement is drain relining. When we reline blocked drains in Bayview our skilled technicians place a new pipe inside your old pipes. The method includes feeding a continuous tube, that is coated with a resin, inside the existing pipes. It is then expanded to fit firmly against the pipe walls. The resin on the tube provides a seamless seal that protects the pipes and offers long-term protection against natural wear and tear. In addition to being more affordable, drain relining takes less time and causes no damage to your property.
