Blocked Drains in Inner West Sydney

My Home Plumbing provides fast and efficient blocked drain services in the Inner West Area. As blocked drain specialists, we will identify the root cause of your problem and repair it to prevent the problem from recurring.

What is a Blocked Drain?

When your drain is clogged, there is something physically blocking the flow of water in your pipes. Blocked drains can be caused by food scraps, hair, cooking fats, tree roots, collapsed pipes, items that shouldn’t be flushed and a number of other causes. This can lead to collapsed pipework, sewer overflow, bad smells, recurring blockages and bigger issues if left untreated.

Signs of a Blocked Drain

Water Draining Slowly

Blockages and pipe obstructions in your drains lead to a smaller space for water to flow through freely. This leads to reduced water flow and stagnant water.

Gurgling Noise from Drains

Clogged drains from tree roots, unflushable items, collapsed pipes, grease, hair, and food scraps can cause air to be trapped in your pipelines. This can create a gurgling or clattering sound from your drain pipes.

Bad Smell Coming from Drains

Drains clogged for a long period of time can build up, causing foul smells from your drains and sewers. Stagnant water is also a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi, which can cause bad odours. Blockages can also prevent air seals from functioning properly, allowing sewer gases to enter your pipework and your home, especially if there is an issue with your boundary trap.

Rising Toilet Water Level

If your toilet is slow to flush and the water is rising up in the bowl, you are likely to have a blocked drain pipe. The toilet system is overloaded, and the blockage needs to be cleared so that it can flush thoroughly.

Overflowing Drains

Clogged drains can cause your water, sewer and stormwater to backup and overflow in and around your home. This can create further damage to your plumbing systems and cause damage to your home. This can become a hygiene problem if not dealt with quickly.

Our Blocked Drain Services

Jet Blasting

High-pressure jet blasters are a fast and efficient way of clearing blocked drains and larger obstructions. They are also good for the environment as no chemicals are used.

Plunging

Depending on the blockage, we attempt to use plungers to unclog blockages in the toilet. They can also be used to clear light clogs in the shower or in sinks.

Excavate and Replace

For larger or more complex jobs, we may need to do an excavation to access drain pipes for repair or replacement. This is especially the case if the blocked section is hard to access with a jet blaster or camera or if the blockage is unable to be cleared due to pipe collapse, corrosion or other large blockages. Our team digs to uncover the pipes to attempt to locate and identify the cause of the blockage. Larger jobs may call for heavy equipment, such as an excavator. Once the blockage has been located and problems identified, we can provide permanent solutions.

CCTV Drain Inspections

Getting an internal view of the problem area allows us to see difficult to get to blocked drains in a non-intrusive way without the need for excavation. We use a specialist, heavy-duty drain camera and manoeuvre it down the pipe to see the problem. Our professional technicians can then determine the best way to clear the drain pipe.

Pipe Relining

Pipe relining is when we insert a resin liner into an existing pipe to repair or replace damaged sections. This is an efficient method of fixing blocked drains without the need for excavation.

Pipe Relocation

Whether you need to move your water meter or move your water pipes for your home renovation, our experienced team can help you reposition your water lines, sewerage and home drainage in accordance with Australian standards. Our technicians will ensure that the pipes are relocated carefully to ensure proper alignment and functionality.
