How do professional plumbers fix a blocked floor drain?


Before we proceed with unblocking your floor drain, we would have to evaluate the origin of the issue. Some of the common reasons why you might face a blocked floor drain problem are:


  • A foreign object might be stuck inside the drain. This occurs especially when children put small toys into the floor drain.
  • Grease from soap or kitchen waste may have built up inside the drain, clogging it up.
  • A broken pipe might be preventing the water from flowing ahead, resulting in a blocked floor drain.

In case of a blocked floor drain in Melbourne, we would use a high-pressure water jet blaster to wash away the blockage. If the issue is due to a broken pipe, we would repair or replace it as needed.

Tree Roots

Gardening can be wonderful and fun but it is important to know where your sewer and stormwater drains are laid before planting certain flora. Cracks and spaces in your pipes are especially vulnerable to strong, deep roots and can cause significant damage to your pipe’s health and your wallet! Out of all the blocked drain issues throughout our 20+ years of plumbing experience, tree roots is the number one most common problem.

Flushing Oils

The most common cause of kitchen sink blockages is oil and waste scraps clogging the drains. Simply DO NOT pour oils down the kitchen sink, but instead pour it into containers to prevent the fats blocking your drain.

Hygiene Objects

Regardless of wipes and female hygiene products being a kind of tissue, you SHOULD NOT flush them down the drain. We advise our customers to dispose of these into a rubbish bin and to remember that all wipes can cause blockages and issues with your drain.

Leaves & Debris

Leaves and debris often block stormwater drains. Make sure they’re kept clear. What we recommend to our customers is to place a Protective Gutter Guard or a simple mesh covering over the drain to keep them clean and clear.

Why should you fix a blocked floor drain immediately?

A blocked floor drain would result in the stagnant water collecting on the floor. This would aid the growth of toxic mould and bacteria, posing a health hazard to your family. Moreover, a floor drain acts as a backup exit in case of an overflowing sink. If something blocks your floor drain and the sink overflows, the water would flood your home.
