Blocked drains Melbourne - Burst Water Pipe Melbourne


Blocked Drains

What are the early signs of a blocked drain?
  • Offensive smells or gurgling sounds from your toilet when flushing.
  • The toilet can be slow to drain or
  • You may notice the water level in the bowl changing.
Blocked drains are unpleasant, can lead to an unnecessary water leak and can become a potential health hazard.

What are likely causes of blocked drains? Often the result of tree roots searching for moisture. Initially tree roots can invade through tiny cracks in the pipe but as the tree roots grow within the pipe they begin to catch any foreign objects within the drain system. This begins as a partial blockage within the drain but eventually leads to a complete blockage over time. Other causes of a blocked drain include grease and fat build up from kitchen sinks, hair deposits from shower, bath or basins and foreign objects being flushed down toilets.

Whatever the cause of the blockage Doherty Plumbing Solutions have the expertise to promptly resolve the issue with minimal disruption to you.
