Blocked drains can hinder the movement of water through your home and create chaos along the way—so if you notice any signs, including water backing up out of a drain or toilet, or gurgling noises from a drain, you need to call skilled Canberra blocked drain cleaning services to resolve the problem.

If the drain blockage is bad enough, water that can’t pass through will eventually have to go somewhere, with wastewater gathering someplace you don’t want it. This can cause problems ranging from bad odours to expensive water damage.

The solution? You’re going to need a plumber to clean your Canberra drains and ensure they are in full working order. But before you call a blocked drain plumber for help, it’s critical you verify they are the best local plumbers around. That is of course unless you use the Best Plumber Club. Then the research is already done for you!

The best plumbers in Canberra are ready to help, with upfront pricing and guaranteed workmanship. All you need to do is is call or give us a few details, and a licenced plumber will be in touch, fast!

Blocked Sink Drains

Have you noticed a sink slow to drain, or even foul smelly drains? You don’t need to put up with it or let it get worse when the best Canberra drain plumbers are ready to unblock it for you!

Blocked Stormwater Drains

You might not notice a blocked storm water drainage in Canberra until significant rainfall. By then it can cause significant water damage and flooding. Make sure your Canberra stormwater drainage system clears water rapidly and is free of tree roots and blockages with plumbers that have all the correct equipment to get the job done.

Blocked Toilets & Sewer Drains

Blocked toilets and sewers are more than an awkward situation. Whether you have guests or desperately need facilities, if your toilet won’t flush properly, then you need it fixed fast. An overflowing toilet is a safety and hygiene issue.

Blocked Shower & Bath Drains

Blocked shower drains are usually caused by a build-up of hair and other debris. You can try to unblock a bath drain with a drain snake, or call in professionals to be sure it’s done right and not going to come back a few weeks later.

Expert Blocked Drain Equipment

Don’t trust any old plumber with your drains! Not every plumber has the specialist equipment needed to ensure the job is done right. You need specialists in sewer and storm water drainage solutions Canberra can count on. The best plumbers carry powerful water jetters capable of blasting through tree roots and other obstructions. A CCTV drain camera inspection means they can show you the drain is cleared and identify any further issues such as cracked or collapsed pipes. Hire a plumber without such equipment and you risk the blockage returning and another callout. Next level is drain pipe relining in Canberra, fixing your drain without disrupting your property.

What’s Causing Your Canberra Blocked Drain?

Blocked drains can be caused by a number of things. A few common causes include:

Improper Disposal Of Fat And Grease

Many homeowners improperly wash fats, oils, and grease straight down the kitchen sink regularly, things like butter, lard, meat fat, cooking oil. It’s not only bad for the environment but can lead to a blocked sink drain anywhere in the system by sticking to the inside of pipes, obstructing flow until you have a full-blown blockage.

There is a simple answer: Dispose of fat or grease in the trash can once it cools and solidifies, not down the sink. You might think you’re just washing it away, but the invisible build-up will eventually make itself known, often in damaging ways.

Tree Root Intrusion

Spreading tree roots can cause a blocked sewage drain, wreaking havoc on your Canberra sewage drains and even causing pipes to break. If this occurs, it likely will result in blockage and eventually a blocked toilet drain—causing a toilet clog or overflow—or a blocked shower drain or other problems.

Top plumbers will clear the offending roots, get the water flowing again properly through the pipes and, if appropriate, cut the roots most likely to find their way back into the pipes in order to prevent future problems.

Additional Causes

If you call a Canberra blocked drain specialist for any emergency drain clean, he or she has probably seen it all. People flush all kinds of things they shouldn’t down the toilet, such as nappies. For that matter, children sometimes flush small toys by accident! These are frequent causes requiring plumbing services to find and clear the source of the block.

The best blocked drain plumbers may also be required to help with unblocking drains caused by a more common problem: hair build-up in the drain. To deal with even these common causes of blocked drains, it’s often inadvisable to use store-bought drain cleaners that can harm your pipes.
