Blocked Drains FAQ's

Our most frequently asked questions about blocked drains

You would call a plumber to clear and investigate what is causing the blockage. You would only call the water authority, i.e. greater western water, if you and neighbouring properties are blocked as this indicates there may be a blockage in the main line.

No, the council will not help unblock private drains.

This may help clear a minor blockage but it is not recommended to do this regularly as it can damage the pipe. If you have a serious blockage, it is best to call a professional.

Call a plumber as soon as possible; use as little water as possible as the sewer is likely to overflow outside of the property from the overflow relief gully.

Sewer drains (toilets, kitchens, laundry, etc.) are connected to the sewer drain. Roof water from gutters and downpipes are connected to the stormwater drain. If the stormwater drain is blocked, the water will back up and flood your property. If the sewer drain is blocked, the wastewater will back up and flood your property.

Gurgling noises, fixtures that aren’t draining, overflowing from the overflow relief gully which is normally located on the side of the house where the kitchen/bathrooms are.

If they are left long enough, then definitely. This is more common with stormwater, as you wouldn’t necessarily notice it as quickly. The best way to prevent this is by having your property regularly maintained and keeping the gutters clear.

Yes, also badly ventilated drains will cause little flies to grow.

The landlord is usually responsible for blocked drains at a property. However, if the tenant has directly caused the blockage, for example by throwing wet wipes down the drain, they normally pay the bill.

Blocked Drain Reviews

Could not highly recommend Brent and his team more. Firstly, their quotes were very competitive, having checked with others. We needed relining of our pipes and our stormwater drain repaired. Brent was able to save us a few thousand dollars when he advised the damage was caused by a telecommunication company (who then agreed to reimburse us). Rather than undertaking the work and requesting payment, Brent was completely honest and transparent with us which we really appreciated. He also left the property nice and tidy, and was always responsive with his communication and lovely to deal with in person. Brent will be doing all our plumbing work in future.

Thanks Brent for coming to help us with our blocked pipe on such short notice. Would highly recommend! Legends ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Brent and team came out to fix our blocked sewage drain, and in the process they identified a broken pipe further down the line. Brent called City West Water on my behalf and explained the issue, and got them to come out the same day.They also showed and emailed me the camera footage so I could see the issue myself.Highly recommend this company: honest and professional. Very rare qualities in today's world.

I think we just found ourselves a new reliable and quality local plumber.We had a blocked sewage drain and called Pipe Dream on a Monday afternoon, initially PD did not have any availability until Thursday but I got a text from Brent in the evening with a quote, and that he could come early the next day if I'm happy to proceed. PD is upfront with their pricing and outlines what job will be done to resolve the issue; this helps when you need to budget and no surprises.The communication at PD is excellent; from the booking process, connecting you with a plumber, and post work if any further actions are required.Brent is polite and professional, he came early and was able to unblock our drain, he also showed and explained the issue, as well as providing a permanent solution with a reasonable quote. The previous plumber we called out only fixed the root problem temporarily which has now re-occurred. After the job was done the area was cleaned up.

We had a blocked drain and we had some guys come out and find the blockage, gave us some advice on how to repair ourselves, but also a very reasonable quote for the fix. They arrived when they said they would completed the fix and cleaned up after themselves. Best plumbers since the Mario Brothers 😊
