Professional Drain Blockage Tools for Drain Cleaning & Blocked Drain Repair

As drain clearing specialists, we can provide professional solutions to unblock your drains. Home remedies and shop-bought products can help, but more thorough methods are often needed to fix the problem for good and make sure it doesn’t return anytime soon. Here are some professional solutions we offer:

  • CCTV Drain Inspections: With a high-tech drain camera inspection, our team can identify the root causes of blockages and implement long-term solutions to fix any issues. A CCTV pipe inspection is suitable for both residential and commercial properties.
  • Pipe Relining: This method involves filling pipes with a flexible liner made from epoxy resin, which hardens inside to form a new pipe lining. It’s a state-of-the-art technique that we are proud to provide.
  • Hydro Jetting/Jet Blasting: To clear stubborn blockages, we can shoot high-powered water with up to 4000 PSI of pressure through your pipes. This method is very effective at cleaning pipes and removing blockages.
  • Electric Eel: Also known as a plumbing snake, an electric eel is a long cable attached to a motor that is fed through the pipes to remove blockages. Its specialised “snakehead” can grab hold of clogs and loosen the debris inside.

Needed some work due to a cracked copper pipe under house & a related water pressure issue in the shower. Josh turned up within 60-90 mins after the call as they said he would (& Mick soon after) they answered all my questions related to the fix as well as some other general queries which was super helpful. Josh walked me through the issue why it happened & the solve. The job was done efficiently as well as cleaning up afterwards.

Types of Melbourne Blocked Drains

Warning Signs of a Blocked Drain

Melbourne has a range of plumbing systems throughout the city, and some piping styles differ between commercial and residential properties. Blocked drains affect all kinds of systems, including:

Whatever type of blocked drain you have, call Service Experts today for reliable drain cleaning in Melbourne. You can always count on us to get the job done without making a mess or damaging your plumbing system.

How to Unblock a Drain

Unblocking a drain may be as simple as using a plunger, or it could require a team effort to excavate your lawn and replace your piping. Either way, seek professional help as soon as you notice a problem, as clogs worsen over time and can lead to disgusting problems like sewage backup and overflowing toilets when ignored.

If you use a plunger, make sure you use a model that’s appropriate for the drain. Plumbing snakes also work, but they can be messy and ineffective if you’ve not had previous experience with them. Chemical drain cleaners are out of the question ー these products are extremely hazardous and are more likely to cause damage than solve your problem.

Hot water, half a cup of baking soda, and one cup of standard vinegar may help remove the blockage. Home remedies can be useful, but in most cases, it’s best to call a professional.

Drain Cleaning FAQs

The most common causes of blocked drains are grease, oil, hair, food, soap buildups, wet wipes, tree roots, excess toilet tissue, and storms. Sometimes, clogged drains are unavoidable, such as when a tree starts growing through your pipes. Mostly, though, you can prevent blockages by avoiding putting products like pasta, fibrous vegetables, and oils down the drain.

Blocked drains can produce foul odours that smell putrid and stale. This is due to the lack of water flow and the build-up of germs inside the pipes, contributing to an unpleasant stench that can impact your home life.

Clearing a blocked drain can be done using a plunger, vinegar and baking soda, or professional plumbing devices. Don’t use chemical cleaning products, as these can damage your drains further. Instead, always call an expert to receive professional help for long-term fixes.

Clearing a blocked drain can cost anywhere between $200 to $5,000, depending on the size of the project and the type of blockage. Small-scale fixes will only cost you a couple hundred dollars, but pipe refittings and specialised procedures may cost you a few thousand bucks.
