The Tell-Tale Signs Of A Blocked Drain

When your drains become blocked, there are some key signs that you may observe. These are typically the signs and symptoms that you may need blocked drain services:

Outdoor Puddles

One of the most common signs of a blocked drain, North Shore properties tend to show, are puddles forming outdoors. This could be caused by a blocked drain. This is especially true if you notice it when it has not been raining.

Slow Draining Sinks

Are your sinks taking longer to drain than they should? Does it take a prolonged period of time for water to empty? This could be the result of blockages caused by food, grease build-ups, hair etc.

Slow Draining Showers

Does your shower take excessively long to empty water content? Then it could be a sign that your shower drain is blocked. Commonly caused by hair buildup in the system, could also be an issue further along the pipeline. Observe whether the bathroom sink has the same issue.

Toilet Flush Not Working

If your toilet is not flushing waste away, the water level climbs up or it is draining slowly, it could be a sign of a pipe blockage. As your local blocked toilet plumber, we know this can be commonly caused by non-flushables such as sanitary items and baby wipes. Issues with sewage are considered an emergency plumbing situation for health and safety reasons.

Cracked Walls and Floors

Another common sign of a blocked drain is that you are noticing increasingly visible cracks on walls and/or flooring. This occurs due to rising dampness and swelling of your building frame or walls as pooling water or sitting water doesn’t drain away fast enough.

Gurgling Noises

If you can hear water gurgling constantly as it tries to empty from your shower/sink, then it is a clear sign that you are dealing with issues within the sewage drain system. If the noises are consistent and/or it seems as though there may be air escaping from the pipes, give us a call today.

Drains in your North Shore home can become blocked for a variety of reasons. More often than not though, the cause of a drain blockage will be the presence and build up of unwanted debris. This can include sanitary products, cleaning wipes, and old hair blocking-up the system.


In your kitchen, build-ups are likely caused by food that has entered the pipes and has not been able to flush away. It could even be a build-up of soap scum that can harden and clog pipes.


As your local blocked drain plumber, we’ve seen it all. Outdoor issues can lead to drain blockages too, such as tree roots finding their way into cracked pipes. As tree roots grow within a pipe, they can become thick enough to stop the water flow entirely. Given that tree roots thirst for more water, your old piping – especially old clay piping – can make the perfect habitat for rapidly-growing tree roots. Feel free to contact us if you suspect you may have issues with your household sewage system.

Blocked Drains due to Grease Blockages

Blocked Drains caused by grease are very common. This is because oil, fats and grease are often washed down sinks. Over time it solidifies and causes a  blockage in your drains.


In this video local Sydney Plumber Chris Smith shows you what happens when this happens.

Our Blocked Drains North Shore Process

Thanks to our simple 2-step process, we ensure that you can access fast solutions from our blocked drain plumber in the North Shore:

STEP ONE – Locate The Blockage

To begin with, we will use all of the tools in our collection to locate and pinpoint the source of your drain blockage. This might include the use of CCTV tools that help us to spot a blockage further along the system. We also use tools like plungers and plumbing snakes for blockages closer to the entry point.

STEP TWO – Clear The Blockage

As soon as we discover where the blockage is, we get to work on removing the debris using a water jetter. This high-pressure water system can slice through tree roots and other sturdy debris. No matter how complicated the issue presents itself to be, we have the tools and knowledge to help you in a jiffy.

How We Sort Out Your North Shore Blocked Drains

We use various methods for clearing out all North Shore drain blockages, including:

Water Jetter

This can quickly cut through the roots of trees and other thick debris. These are excellent for clearing away build-ups of thick grease and other nasties like sanitary items, food and hair. We can use this in combination with powerful cleaning detergents to help guarantee the cleanest possible end result.

Water FlexShaft

This drain cleaning tool also clears blocked drains, such as root and grease blockages. Another added benefit is that it is highly portable due to its independence of water hoses and petrol engines for operation. This makes it perfect for dealing with drains in high-rise buildings and apartments as it is so portable.


SeeSnakes allow us to see further along the pipeline meaning that we can easily pinpoint the source of the blockage – we can even show images of what is causing the blockage. When we need to see as far as 50m downstream, this works like a charm for problem solving before proceeding with the correct tool for drain cleaning.

How To Prevent Blocked Drains In North Shore

Of course, the best solution to a drain blockage is to prevent it happening in the first place. To help reduce the risk of a blockage, consider the following:

  • Resist temptation to empty food down your sink – empty food debris and coffee grounds into your compost bin and dispose of them properly.
  • Install catchers for anything that goes down your sink that is likely to cause a blockage. This can limit the amount of debris that gets lodged in your pipes over time. 
  • Decant your waste oil and grease from cooking pots and pans into jars and dispose. As opposed to allowing it to build-up and harden in your drain.
  • Do not flush paper towels, nappies and sanitary products down the toilet. Avoid flushing wipes, even those marked as ‘flushable’ can be a risk and you may be in need of a blocked toilet plumber sooner than you think.
  • Get rid of concrete, joint sealers and cement properly. When washed down the drain, they are likely to come together and create large and solid pipe blockages.
  • Arrange an annual drain check-up from our specialist North Shore support team. Older properties can be more likely to suffer from blockages, but an annual check-up reduces that risk and can save you a lot of money in the long run.
