Signs that your drains are blocked

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.
