Bathroom basin

Typically, your bathroom drains like your bathtub or your bathroom sinks are susceptible to foreign matters like hair, cotton buds, or even floss entering your plumbing sewer pipes. These types of items make it problematic for water to flow easily in your plumbing system, especially if they begin to clog or block, drains and pipes need to be protected. Always aim to use strainers or guards for all your plumbing drains.

Shower drain

Shower drains get clogged with hair and scum regularly. You’ll want to clear blocked drains as soon as possible. You might notice your shower floor drain is slow to drain, or there is an unusual smell emanating from your plumbing pipe.

These are all signs of clogged drains and could potentially be causing further damage. Our Northern Beaches plumbers are ready to tackle all drains, unblocked or unclogged, free-flowing pipes are what we aim for.

Floor wastes and drains

If your drain is slow to drain, you notice smells, or there is a backflow of water coming up through the drain, your sewer plumbing service is probably suffering from a blockage. A blocked floor waste could be extremely problematic, especially if say… one of your plumbing fixtures burst and you have a rush of water needing to escape.

Should I try to clear my blocked drain myself?


If you try unblocking your drain or pipe without the help of a trained Northern Beaches plumbing professional, chances are high you’ll make the plumbing problems worse. In the long run, it’s likely the blocked drain will continue and recur, ending up costing you more with the pipe damage it might cause.

Mostly, blocked drains are more complex than you think. From years of a build-up of foreign objects in your sewer lines to external factors like a tree root entering your drains. Unless you have the capabilities of our handy plumbing tools like a drain camera, being able to understand the threat your drains are facing is limited.

Using over-the-counter drain-clearing chemicals will not remove tree roots or severe foreign matter build-ups, only our highly trained plumber is able to do that. More often than not, a blocked drain will only grow… potentially causing greater blocked drain repairs for your service.
