What are the signs of a blocked drain?

The most common signs of a blocked drain are:

  • Pools of standing water outside or backflow from the drain grate.
  • Toilets that won’t flush, or sinks that won’t empty, or which empty slowly.
  • Backflow through plug holes.
  • An unpleasant, persistent smell of with no obvious cause: this may be due to the pipe cracking or bursting around the blockage, or be down to the cause of the blockage (for example a deceased creature).
  • Unusual sounds coming from the drainage pipe.

Some blockages may affect a single outlet pipe (so, for example, only a sink will blocked). Other blockages will be in the pipe which takes sewage to the mains, in which case all drainage outlets will be affected.

What are the causes of blocked drains?

One of the commonest plumbing problems, there are a number of different reasons why a drain in Melbourne might block up. Some of the commonest scenarios when drain cleaning or unblocking is needed include:

  • Tree roots: these can gradually penetrate into a pipe, creating a blockage.
  • Small animals: sometimes a rat or similar may become stuck in a pipe, or die of natural causes, creating a blockage.
  • Fatbergs: if fat has been tipped down the sink on a regular basis, it can start to solidify at pipe joints or bends (or any part of the pipe where the velocity of the contents temporarily slows). Over time, the build-up grows,eventually creating an unwanted blockage.
  • Toys or similar being flushed down the toilet: any household with small children can expect the occasional blocked drain due to unsuitable objects being flushed down.
  • Build-ups. Hair, toilet paper or even soap residue can all be deposited at various points along the pipe. In a similar way to fat, the deposits can aggregate, eventually creating a blockage.

Having invested in powerful, effective drain cleaning machinery, we can also use high pressure water to jet away the problem.
