Blocked Drains

We understand the havoc and stress caused by blocked drains – our experienced plumbers have got you covered. We are available to repair your drain or sewer in Sydney and can be there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in emergency situations.

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

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.

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 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.

These guys were very transparent, timely and super helpful. I was in such a pickle and the team not only helped me fix my plumbing issue, but they also identified some more serious infrastructure damage that they included in an invoice i could show my landlord. They were not pushy at all and just genuinely helpful (and friendly too)! I would definitely recommend them. 🙂

I highly recommend Hello Plumbing for your next emergency. In my case it was backed up pipes due to tree root blockage. The plumbers were prompt and gave exceptional, professional service. Besides removing the roots, they found a long term solution to this ongoing problem, and provided a 25 year guarantee for their work.

We cold called Hello Plumbing on a Monday morning for a blocked sewer, with Andy arriving that afternoon to clear the sewer. Unfortunately not a long term fix with a complete sewer relining required of the old system. Wednesday Andy and team arrived and successfully relined the sewer over the day.Competitive quote, professional workmanship and exemplar client communication skills from not only the team on site, but head office! ………..Absolutely recommend Hello Plumbing!
