Sewer plumbing Blackburn South

After noticing dirty water backing up with bath, shower and toilet being very slow to drain, our customer suspected a blocked sewer drain at their property. They tried to tackle the plumbing emergency using a plunger in the toilet, and the water level temporarily returned to normal levels.

However, they decided to call Doherty Plumbing Solutions office seeking professional assistance and more permanent solution. Our plumber Tim attended the call after a COVID Screening, to investigate the issue.

Tim found that the overflow was occurring through the ORG / ISBT shaft, and there was blockage in the sewer line. This needed to be rectified. He used a 3’’ cutter with the cable machine, which successfully cleared the drain.

Tim assessed the sewer connection, running cables from upstream to downstream to ensure all was now clear. Performed water and paper test to ensure all okay.

Neat job, Tim!

Where can I get plumbing help for blocked sewer pipes in Melbourne’s east?

A clear sewer line is supposed to take the wastewater away from the property. If there is evidence of this dirty water flowing back indoors, with a gurgling sound emanating particularly in the bathroom / kitchen drains, this can be due to a blockage.

Slow rate of water draining through the property’s sewer network can indicate there is an obstruction somewhere inside the pipelines.

If you notice these issues at your Melbourne home or workplace, you need professional assistance from a licensed plumbing service such as Doherty Plumbing Solutions.

Our team of experienced sewer plumbers work across Melbourne’s eastern suburbs and can help promptly detect the root cause and resolve the issue at your home or business, with minimal disruption to you.

We have access to drain machines, and if required, cameras, which can accurately diagnose plumbing problems related to sewer blockage, and help with the clearing process.
