How to Clear Blocked Sewers

A blocked sewer is more than just a nuisance; it can be a health hazard. A blocked sewer often means that your family is at risk from dirty water and bacteria.

How to clear blocked sewers

Although you cannot stop your sewers from getting blocked, there are certain prevention methods.  Our plumbers in Sydney are pleased to give you some advice on how to clear your blocked sewers.

Chemicals and tools to unblock sewers

There are some chemicals and devices for clearing blocked sewers. However, these often can’t get completely to the source.

You may only be touching on part of the source when you use chemicals or DIY devices to try and unblock a drain. We can fix almost any blocked sewer drain problem safely, quickly – unblocking at the source, no matter it may be.

Keep your eye on what you are washing down your drain.

Easier said than done. Children often flush toilet paper down the toilet, food leftovers are often scraped in the sink pipe, and we often cannot stop hair or leaves from getting our sewer blocked.

The best advice from our Sydney plumber experts is to regularly check your sewer. Our plumbers in Sydney are pleased to help you with your blocked sewer drain without disrupting your life routine.

Make sure your garden is clean

Cleaning up fallen leaves regularly will definitely help to keep your sewer clear of debris. However, sometimes we don’t do it in time or thoroughly enough. When that happens, our plumbers in Sydney are here to help unblock a sewer.

Placing strainers over plugholes can minimise the possibility of blocked sewers
