How do I know I have a blocked drain?
There are a number of different symptoms which could be indicative of a blocked drain. For many Canberra residents, the first thing they notice is that water is slow to clear from their sink or basin. This may be a problem that comes on gradually, or develops immediately, depending on the nature of the blockage.
Other signs of a drain blockage in a Canberra property include:
- Water rising up to the top of the toilet bowl after flushing, then not draining away.
- Strange noises! Some Canberra homeowners will notice burbling, gurgling or other unusual sounds coming from the pipework.
- An unpleasant smell: sometimes this may not have an obvious cause.

Common causes of the blocked drains Canberra properties experience
In the past, we got calls from Canberra properties and discovered the drains have become blocked for all sorts of reasons.
Frequent causes of a blocked drain include:
- Objects other than toilet paper. A single large object can cause a blockage, or a build-up of smaller items over time.
- Fat can build up in a pipe. Initially this can lead to slow drainage. If left untreated, eventually the fat can cause a complete blockage.
- Occasionally we come across a Canberra property where a blocked drain is because of a pipe which has become broken or displaced.
Specialist tools for blocked drains Canberra people need fixing
We have invested heavily in cutting edge equipment, enabling us to offer our Canberra customers a solution for almost any drainage problem.
Our selection of tools consists of:
- A high-pressure water jet: offering an effective solution to almost any blockage, our hi-tech jetter blasts Canberra drains clear of unwanted build-ups.
- Acid treatment: once we clear the blockage, an acid treatment can remove any residual organic matter.
- An electric eel: this is a specialist plumbing tool that consists of a series of flexible rods and cutting tools. At times the electric eel can be a more effective plumbing tool to clear a Canberra drain than the water jetter.
When we come out to a Canberra property, we will assess which method is going to be most effective, according to the nature of the blockage that we encounter.
