Blocked Drains

We understand the havoc and stress caused by blocked drains – our experienced plumbers have got you covered. We are proud to service homes and businesses across Sydney to repair your drain today.

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 that can clear the blockage, while avoiding digging in your garden or any upheaval in your home.

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

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

Frequently Asked Questions

1
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.

2
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. A drain trap is a cheap and effective method to stop your sinks and bathroom/shower drains becoming blocked in the future.

3
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 causes any long-term damage. Here are some tell-tale signs of a blocked drain:

  • 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, flushing your toilet and in your pipes.

I called Hello Plumbing last night as our hot water stopped working. Rob and Callum turned up first thing this morning ready to go. It took them no time to work out what was wrong and fix the issue. They were efficient, very professional and really friendly. Highly recommend.

Professional, reliable, great service. Tony from Hello Plumbing investigated a leak in our apartment laundry and was able to fix it the same day. He was very patient while we tracked down the keys to access the utilities cupboard to turn off the water. I’m so happy that we’re able to find a plumbing service we can trust and use for years to come.

Made mistake of not being home when this firm sent “tradesman” to replace leaking toilet cistern washer.
Wife ended up paying over $800 after being conned into approving replacement of isolating valve and hose,
Never again!! Owner at least contacted me and made a partial refund.
