Signs of a Blocked Drain

Blocked drains can be some of the most inconvenient and frustrating plumbing problems. A slow draining sewer makes it difficult to get rid of waste. We employ the following techniques to open blocked drains:

Bad smell coming from the drain.

Shower, toilets or bath draining slowly

Water pooling around floorwaste.

Change in toilet water level.

Drains gurgling after the toilet flushes.

Water not draining at all.

Water coming out from beneath the toilet.

Overflowing stormwater drains outside.

Block Drain Process

At Sewer Surgeon, we operate 24 hours a day to ensure your emergencies are attended to as a priority. Whether you need urgent repairs or routine sewer drain cleaning and maintenance, you can count on us to complete the task to the highest industry standards.

How To Avoid A Blocked Drain In Sydney

Check out these lists we made on some of the major causes of blocked drains in Sydney and the steps you can take to mitigate them.

Use sink strainers.

Sink strainers are perfect protectors of your drains. They only let water pass through, preventing larger items from entering the drainage system and blocking it up. They’ll catch food waste in your kitchen and things like hair, bath salts and beauty product residue in your bathroom–all things that might block to block up your drains.

Don’t pour oil or grease down your drains

Whilst your drain can handle liquids like water and milk with no problems, cooking oil and grease are a whole other story. These products set within pipes, creating a solid blockage that can be difficult to remove. Other food and soap debris then get stuck behind them, creating a blocked drain.

Be careful what you flush down the toilet

Toilet drainage systems can handle human waste and toilet paper just fine but flushing away other products can quickly lead to a blockage. We’retalking baby wipes and things like sanitary towels,which are much thicker and do not break down inthe same way toilet paper does. It’s best to dispose of these in a bin to avoid blocked pipes and drains.

Regular drain maintenance with a Jet Blaster

To ensure your drains do not block over time from roots, grease or Grime build-up, we recommend your drains are cleared with a high-pressure jet blaster every few years. If you have terracotta or earthenware pipes we suggest this should be completed every 12 months as terracotta and earthenware are at higher risk are of tree root ingress.

Drain Camera Inspection

A CCTV (closed-circuit television) camera can be used for many purposes, but you are probably most familiar with the technology in security cameras.

Read More

The same technology enables water and sewer service providers to access subterranean pipes and sewer systems. From 70mm to 3m in diameter, remote access and video streaming to the monitoring station are possible. High-tech cameras can detect pipe faults and deterioration in any condition. This way, we can diagnose the issue and plan for a no-dig pipe repair option or the pipe relining.
A CCTV pipe inspection can find blockages, leaks, and pipe damage that regular cameras can’t reach. Many homeowners and businesses are unaware of concealed pipe issues caused by degradation, incursion, or weather. A CCTV pipe is one of the best instruments for finding and fixing leaks in sewer and water systems.

Hugely impressed - not only was this a late call out on a Saturday night, he was so respectful of my two sleeping babies in a small two bedroom apartment, neither woke up. Above and beyond service!

Fantastic customer service. I called after 5:00pm to reschedule my booking for the next day, I didn’t expect anyone will return my call, but someone quickly returned my call to booked me in another time.Sam was our plumber. He was very friendly and professional. He gave me a call before he arrived just to inform me he will be arriving in 20 mins time.  I had a reoccurring blocked toilet drain. Sam was very patience to listen to the issues and gave me options of what we could do to find out the cause. They have very advanced equipments and able to locate the cause was due to a broken pipe with tree roots filled up the cavity.

What Methods Are There To Clear A Blocked Drain In Sydney

Jet Blasting

Jet Blasting

High-Pressure Jet Blasting is a revolutionary innovation for clearing and cleaning your drains. It is a perfect solution for clearing blocked drains, blocked sewers, and blocked stormwater pipes. The system consists of a high-pressure hose that can be fitted with a multitude of nozzles depending on the type of blockage. The hose connects to an engine that can pressurise the water up to 5000 psi. A jet blaster can navigate the bends and elbows of your plumbing system with ease, cutting through grease, tree roots or waste build-up.

Electric Eel

Electric Eel

The electric eel (or plumbers’ eel) is a steel cable, with a cutting head, that is spun through a motor. This allows the eel to cut through any blockages in your pipes. The larger electric eels have been replaced with jet-blasting technology as a safer more efficient method. However, handheld electric eels are still perfect for clearing blockages from smaller drainpipes.

Chemical Treatment

Chemical Treatment

When used correctly, chemical treatments can clear grease build-up, hair clumps and body oils from your pipes. It can also be used to inhibit root growth, keeping your drains clean and free of any blockages.



If your blocked drain is the cause of grease buildup or excess toilet paper, a plunger may be the best option to unclog your pipe. By sealing the drain and pushing, you increase the pressure in the pipe, forcing air through the line to clear the blockage.
