BLOCKED DRAINS FAQ
How do you clear a blocked drain?
There are a few fast and effective DIY methods to unblock your drains that require no special skills or tools. For instance, have you boiled the kettle lately? If so, pour the lot down the drain and follow it up with half a cup of so of baking soda and perhaps a dribble of vinegar. Wash it all down with another kettle of water and see if that’s worked.

Who is responsible for a blocked drain in Victoria?
While local councils manage and maintain the sewer and stormwater drains beyond your front and back gate, and landlords handle the lot if you're renting, blocked drains on a homeowner's property are generally their responsibility alone. This goes for drains inside your home, but also your external or outside drains, too.
How do I know if my drain is blocked?
The clearest and most alarming sign of a blocked drain is standing or even flooding water. But you also need to watch out for the earlier signs, like those familiar foul drain smells, water that's slow to drain away, anomalies like raised toilet bowl water levels, and strange gurgling sounds.
What does a blocked drain smell like?
Anyone who has caught a whiff of that distinctive drain smell is unlikely to want to ever smell it again. That musty, mouldy smell of a bathroom that needs a good clean is just the beginning, because the stench of a blocked drain is actually more like a carton of rotten eggs or even raw sewage.
Is a blocked drain a plumbing emergency?
While a blocked drain is initially just a nuisance, it will only get worse, so you should always get in touch with a great local emergency plumber. A critical blockage poses an immediate risk of property and plumbing system damage, hazards for you and your family, and health risks due to harmful bacteria. So it's most certainly requires emergency attention.
