4 Warning Signs of Blocked Drains in Sydney

However, you can prevent blocked sewer drains and pipes in Sydney in the first place by early detection. Blocked drains are a common plumbing problem that is easily avoidable by looking for these warning signs you have a clogged pipe. Armed with this knowledge, you will be able to tell if you simply have a clogged pipe or a bigger problem such as a blocked main sewer line.

1. Blocked Toilet – Low Water Level
A clear sign of a clogged toilet drain is low toilet water levels. A clogged drain is also indicated by a slow draining toilet. All clogged toilet drains should be given priority as they may result in an overflow of raw sewerage if the main sewer line is blocked. For immediate emergency drain cleaning anywhere in Sydney, please call your trusted local plumbers – Silverwater Plumbing.

2. Sink Blockages – Slow Draining Water
Slow draining water in sinks can also be a tell-tale sign of a blocked bath pipe or clogged shower drain. As water pools, it drains slowly. The blocked sink may worsen as soap and hair further clogs the drain which may result in flooding. To prevent clogged pipes getting worse, call your local Sydney drain clearing specialists at Silverwater Plumbing before you end up with a blocked sewer drain.

3. The Need to Clear a Foul Smelling Drain
As more waste builds up on top of the blocked drain, it will break down and decompose then upstream water becomes stagnant. These factors result in foul smells around any blocked sinks, bathtubs, showers and toilets. If you have smelly drains, Silverwater Plumbing can unblock your pipes across Sydney around the clock.

4. Problems with Gurgling Drains
Blocked drains may emit a gurgling noise from the pipes when water drains away from the obstruction. Besides having an annoying noise in your pipes, this could be a sign of larger blocked drain problems. Silverwater Plumbing can come to you and unblock your drain in any Sydney location with our specialist equipment such as high-pressure water jetters and electric eels.

4 Common Causes of Sydney’s Blocked Drains

If you identified with any blocked drain symptoms above, chances are your drains may be clogged. Perhaps you’re wondering what causes blocked drains in the first place. The usual blockage causes are listed below:

1. Hair Blockages
Over our 10 years unblocking Sydney drains, we have found hair one of the most common culprits for causing drain blockages. Hair binds with grease and soap to create difficult to remove clogs.
2. Soap Blockages
Our Sydney blocked drain customers often wonder how soap can cause pipe blockages. However, some soaps are made with grease or fat and these combine with water to leave soap scum clogging shower and bath pipes.
3. Food Scrap Blockages
Another common blocked drain cause we see all the time all around Sydney is a build-up of food in kitchen sinks. This has had many people calling us for emergency drain unblocking services. Additionally, grease and oils solidify in pipes causing bad clogs.
4. Tree Roots
Working across the Sydney metro area, we often come across tree roots that have invaded drains and done significant pipe damage. Small cracks or leaky underground pipes allow tree root intrusion into drains. Once inside the pipes, plant roots grow quickly, obstruct water flow and can cause serious pipe damage. Clearing tree roots from pipes is often complex and may require high-pressure jetter cleaning, trenchless pipe relining repair and sometimes even excavation. It is a good idea to inspect underground pipes annually to prevent costly plumbing repairs in future.

Do-It-Yourself Blocked Drain Tips

As a local Sydney plumbing company, we want to help people avoid the expense of having to call a professional plumber. Therefore, we’ve included some DIY drain unblocking fixes here. So, before you reach for a toxic drain cleaner or call a plumber, try these home solutions yourself.

1. Unblock a Drain with a Plunger
The good old plunger dislodges food particles stuck in the p-trap beneath your sink. Simply, half fill your sink with warm water and push up and down on the plunger. Finish up by rinsing the drain with hot water. This works a treat for toilet blockages as well. However, plungers may only be useful for minor blocked pipe problems.

2. De-clog Pipes with a Bent Coat Hanger
For hair or other small objects stuck in bathroom drains, remove the drain cover then fish around to loosen pipe blockages using a bent piece of hooked wire. Coat hangers are good for removing hard but reachable blockages in drains.

3. Baking Soda and Vinegar
Start by pouring hot water down your blocked drain then add half a cup of baking soda and let sit for a few minutes. Next, pour 1 cup of vinegar and one cup of boiling hot water on top. Cover with the drain plug and after 5 to 10 minutes, flush the drain once more with boiling water. This home-made pipe clearing volcano can remove some of the most difficult pipe blockages.

You Really Don’t Want a Blocked Sewer

Most people in Sydney don’t even think about their sewer lines until they have a major problem. A serious main sewer line clog can cause raw sewage to backup come out of drains. Blocked sewer drains can cause significant damage to your home. Furthermore, blocked sewers can be expensive to repair or replace. To avoid the need for costly emergency plumbing, we recommend proactive sewer unblocking strategies. Silverwater Plumbing can unblock Sydney drains with our state-of-the-art drain clearing technologies including hi-pressure jetters and electric eels. If we are unable to remove the initial blockage, we may recommend a CCTV camera inspection to identify pipe problems.

Great service and very professional. Replaced my hot water from an indoor to outdoor unit and upgraded relevant gas and water pipes. Great attention to details too even though the job was quite big. For example sanding off the copper pipe after cutting it before installation. Price is fair and you get discount for multiple jobs. Highly recommend them.

My family discovered that we had a water leak after our water bill doubled. I searched online for a reputable local plumber and decided to go with Silverwater Plumbing after reading positive reviews on Product Review and Google. And I was not disappointed. Silver Plumbing were punctual and came with a smile. After explaining our problem, they went straight to the task and did what they needed to do. They were professional, friendly and easy to communicate with. They identified the leak and explained what they were going to do. They were confident and experienced. In terms of their pricing, it appears to be reasonable. I cannot comment on how competitive their pricing were as I did not obtain quotes from other plumbers. But for the service they provided, I would definitely consider using these guys again for future plumbing needs.
