Blocked Drains

Blocked drains in Sydney are mostly caused by tree roots, grease, sanitary products or baby wipes. The first sign your drain is blocked could be an odd height of the water in your toilet, slow flushing or a bad smell.

If you leave your blocked drains without fixing them, sewage water or sludge could reverse back into your bathroom or home.

Hello Plumbing has state-of-the-art equipment which can clear the blockage, while avoiding digging through your garden or home

No matter what is causing your blocked drain, we can find the solution.

We’ll always give you the full price up front, with absolutely no surprises.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes blocked drains?

If your drain is outside, the blockage is likely to be caused by a build up of dead leaves or tree roots which can grow into pipes and stop water flowing properly. An indoor blocked drain is generally due to heavy materials being flushed down the drain and clogging it up – for example, sanitary products or paper towels. A kitchen drain could become blocked because of food or grease.

How do I avoid a blocked drain?

It’s very important to keep a close eye on what goes down your drain – for example, scraping plates to avoid excessive food going down the drain, and not pouring cooking oil down the drain. In the bathroom, throw items such as hair grips, hair, nappies, tampons, face wipes and cotton wool in the bin. Excessive toilet paper can also cause a blocked drain, so don’t use too much. Outside drains should be kept free from leaves or garden waste.

How do I know if I have a blocked drain?

Sometimes it can take a while for a blockage to build up and become obvious. It’s important to be aware of the signs of a blocked drain so you can fix it before it does any long-term damage

  • Your toilet, shower, bath or sink is draining slowly or not at all
  • If flushing the toilet causes water to rise in the shower, or running taps causes the water in the toilet to rise
  • If any appliances which use water are causing water to rise elsewhere, including external drains
  • A bad smell – this can often be the first signed of a blocked drain
  • Gurgling noises from drains, plug holes, toilet flushes and pipes.

Jennifer McDonald

Called Hello Plumbing regarding our blocked toilet hey came out to assess and it turned out that tree roots were damaging our pipes (very common) in our area. They explained what the needed to be done and photos were taken of the roots and the damage that they had done to one of the pipes. We were given a quote and it was a very satisfactory (they had to reline the pipe and supply a brand new toilet). Yesterday they came out and did the work. They left our bathroom clean a tidy. I would have no problems in recommending Hello Plumbing.
