    How can you know your drain is blocked?

    1. Slow Water Drainage

    A telltale sign of a blocked drain is when the water in your sink, toilet, shower, or bath fails to evacuate as swiftly as it should. When you’re taking a shower, for instance, you might observe the water accumulating at your feet instead of disappearing down the drain immediately. Neglecting this warning sign can progressively hinder your daily activities like showering or washing.

    2. Peculiar Odours Emitting from the Drain

    Should an unpleasant scent be emanating from your drain, it may indicate a blockage. The source of the obstruction within your drainage system will likely start to decay, producing a distinct malodour. There’s no need for a close inspection; typically, these odours are strong enough to be noticeable even from afar and become increasingly difficult to disregard.

    3. Unusual Noises from the Drain

    If your drains or toilets emit a gurgling or bubbling sound, it may suggest entrapped air within the pipes, a common side effect of blockage. Such sounds are a clear signal that your drains might require professional attention.

    4. Fluctuating Toilet Water Levels

    An obvious symptom of a blocked toilet drain can be seen in fluctuating water levels. Should you witness a higher than normal rise in water level post-flush, or if it overflows, it’s imperative to take immediate action and contact us to prevent exacerbating the situation.

    5. Damp Floors or Walls

    The presence of moisture patches on your floors or walls can denote a more serious drainage issue, like a damaged or collapsed pipe. Noticing such signs warrants urgent intervention by a drainage expert to avoid potential structural damage to your property.

    Have these signs manifested in your property?

    Call us on 1800 571 216 for a repair estimate. We are committed to transparent, upfront services for all drainage issues. Your emergency is our priority, and we’re ready to restore your drainage system in Melbourne to optimal function—swiftly and effectively.

    FAQs on Blocked Drains in Melbourne

    What causes drains to become blocked?

    Blocked drains can occur from:
    – Flushing non-degradable items like wet wipes, sanitary products, and nappies.
    – Tree roots infiltrating the pipes.
    – Accumulation of grease and oils.
    – Poor plumbing installation practices.
    – Aging pipes that have rusted, moved out of place, or broken.

    How quickly can you attend to a blocked drain?

    We recognise that drain blockages can arise at any time and need immediate attention. That’s why our customer service line is available 24/7. With our team stationed throughout Melbourne in fully stocked vehicles, we’re always ready to respond promptly to your call.

    Is it okay to leave a blocked drain until the morning?

    Generally, it’s safe to wait until morning to address a blocked drain. Blocked drains typically won’t harm the pipes if left overnight, and most systems have an external overflow to manage excess water until the issue is resolved. Tackling the blockage in the morning could also simplify and expedite the process, potentially saving you both time and cost.

    However, if the blockage is causing internal flooding, we advise calling us immediately to mitigate property damage. Our team is on standby around the clock to dispatch a specialist plumber to your location without delay.

    What is the timeframe for clearing a blocked drain?

    Our plumbers are specialists in resolving blocked drains, equipped with the latest industry tools. The duration for clearing a drain depends on the blockage’s cause and the drain’s type (sewer or stormwater).

    – Sewer drain blockages typically take between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours to clear.
    – Stormwater drains, which may have been obstructed for longer, can take around 1-2 hours due to potential growth of tree roots or collapsed pipes.

    How will I know the drain is completely unblocked?

    Our procedure starts with an examination using a CCTV drain camera to identify and assess the blockage. Following the clearance, employing a high-pressure water jet, we’ll re-examine the drain with the camera to ensure it is entirely clear and provide a report on any pipe conditions that could lead to future blockages.

    What if the drain can’t be unblocked?

    While our vans are outfitted with cutting-edge technology to clear blockages effectively, on rare occasions, a drain might not be accessible or repairable if collapsed or obstructed by large tree roots or concrete. In such cases, we will offer a comprehensive, obligation-free quote for the necessary repairs.

    What are the risks of ignoring a blocked drain?

    Ignoring a blocked drain can result in water backing up and overflowing from the lowest point, or seeping into the ground through any breaks, potentially undermining concrete slabs and foundations over time. Additionally, tree roots causing the blockage may enlarge, exacerbating the pipe damage.

    What can I do while waiting for the plumber?

    To facilitate a faster and smoother repair process:
    – Check the main sewer line if accessible, to determine if the blockage might be in the main sewer.
    – Gather any plumbing documentation, like house plans, to help the plumber understand your system’s layout.
    – Expose any known external plumbing access points.
    – List and inform the plumber of all fixtures experiencing blockage or drainage issues upon arrival.
