Blocked Drain Malvern

Our team consists of reliable experienced Melbourne plumbers who can take care of your blocked drain problems efficiently. This is just one of the many cases we have solved successfully, involving a blocked drain in Malvern.
We received a call from a household in Malvern about a blocked drain. For this job, we brought in a sewer machine, another name for this is a “Plumber’s Snake” or “Drain Snake”. As the names suggest, the machine speeds up the process of unclogging and cleaning a blocked drain.
Using the sewer machine, we unclogged and cleaned the drain, removing roots and other substances causing the blockage. There are many blockage-inducers you can unintentionally be letting inside your drain. Be aware of common things like hair, tissue paper and baby wipes. We found these in this blocked drain in Malvern. However, we also found plant roots blocking the drain. These could possibly have come from outside the house.
We found the blockage in this drain was quite persistent, requiring us to use the sewer machine 5 times.
Once the drain was completely unblocked and appeared to be functioning normally, we needed to test it rigorously to ensure it was fully functional. We also had to keep an eye out for any remaining blockage. The drain was confirmed to be fully functional and unclogged. However, if an issue like this were to occur again, further investigation would be required.
Afterwards, we cleaned up the surrounding areas where we worked and collected all the blockage we found from the drains. The blockage was then disposed of properly.
