Blocked Drains in South East Melbourne

When it comes to blocked drains in Melbourne’s south east suburbs, Mr Plumber is the go to business that many homes and businesses call.  A blocked stormwater drain is a more serious problem than it might appear in the surface and can cause a number of problems:

  • Breeding ground for mosquitoes

  • Attracts other insects

  • Repugnant smells

  • Causes water damage

  • Causes costly repairs

  • Causes damage to buildings and infrastructure

Clearing Blocked Drains

Sometimes the cause of a blocked stormwater drain is obvious. You can see leaves, sticks  or silt clearly blocking the flow of the drain. In such a case, a bit of shovelling will usually be all that's needed for clearing the blocked drains. If the build up is only silt, you might try prodding the building with a running hose so that it releases and flows freely down the drainage system. If you can't get the drain unblocked with a hose, give Mr Plumber a call. We have specialised tools and high pressure equipment.

How To Clear Blocked Drains Outside

 

There are many telltale signs that let you know you have a blocked stormwater drain. One of the most obvious signs is overflowing gutters. If you have a blocked drain when there's a sudden and significant downpour, the water that runs down your roof and into your gutters will have nowhere to go. So, the back pressure caused by a blocked drainage system will direct the water to flow over the gutter instead of down the pipe where it is supposed to.

 

In order to find the cause of the blockage so you can figure out how to clear blocked drains outside, it might be necessary to use CCTV technology. One method of clearing blocked drains is to use water jetting technology. Mr Olumber’s vans are well equipped with CCTV technology, water jetters and many other tools that can permanently unblock drains once and  for all.

Blocked Stormwater Drains Melbourne

Mr Plumber has seen it all when it comes to blocked stormwater drains in Melbourne. Drains can be blocked by a number of things. Often the blockage is not in the actual drain itself, but there is an overlooked reason for the blockage. Gutters can be blocked by leaves or there might be silt blocking pipes that cause water to run off into lawns and pathways instead of through drainage systems.

 

Stormwater drains can be blocked directly by silt, leaves, twigs or other rubbish. Sometimes a lot of dirt, silt and rubbish can build up in a drainage system that has never been blocked -- and then after a sudden downpour all that debris along the drainage line can collect at one point, clog the drainage system and cause flooding in the surrounding area.

Blocked Drains DIY

Drains that are performing well are definitely something that we take for granted. It doesn’t take long for life to become extremely smelly, inconvenient and downright disgusting when drains become blocked. Prevention is definitely better than the cure when it comes to blocked drains.

Preventing Blocked Drains: There are some basic measures that can be taken to ensure that drains don’t become blocked in the first place. Firstly, putting filters over plug holes, grates or any other entry point to drainage systems is a must. It’s much easier to clean a filter than to clean out a drain that has become thoroughly blocked over time. It’s also a lot cleaner and less smelly! We encourage our customers to always be mindful that foreigh objects such as hair, food or even toys do not make their way into internal drainage systems. For external drainage systems, it’s necessary to be mindful of leaves, dirt, crass and sticks.

 

Signs of a Blocked Drain: The most common sign of a blocked drain, apart from visually seeing that it is blocked, of course, is a foul smell. When drains are functioning properly, it is uncommon for any kind of smell or odour to be present. Overflowing, gurgling sounds and slow drainage are all telltale signs of a blocked drain.
