6 Tips to avoid blocked sewer drains.

  1. Keep all leaves, dirt, wood chips and debris clear from the tops of sewer gully grates and sewer pipe inspection openings.
  2. At the first sign that a toilet, basin, shower, sink, trough or bath is slow to empty have your sewer drains professionally cleaned. Cleaning should start from the stink pipe at the top of your drain then all of the way to the boundary connection.
  3. Don’t Use Chemicals such Mr Muscle, CLR Clear or Draino. It sounds bias, but these chemicals nearly always make things much worse. If you need to attempt something quickly, try a drain plunger or a hairy mop as plunger in the drain or toilet bowl.
  4. Don’t put oil, fat, grease, kitty litter wipes, tampons, sanitary napkins, paper towels or plaster down any sewer drains or toilets.
  5. If you have an island kitchen bench run hot water down the drain for a five minutes every month.
  6. Don’t plant trees that will grow very large over sewer drains.

Some Canberra Plumbers will quote you a cheap price for a blocked drain clean just to get their foot in your door. These plumbers will try to turn what should be a small job into a very expensive headache for you. Electric eels can do a better job of cleaning drains than a high pressure water jetter. Plumbers prefer to use drain cleaning water jetters in most cases because they put less physical strain on the plumber. Kitty litter, wipes, tampons, emery boards, nappy wipes, and paper towels cannot be put down drains or toilets. Every plumbing fixture inside your home drains to the sewerage system. Any rain water that falls on or around your house will drain to the stormwater system.
