There are many reasons your drain may need cleaning:
- Bathroom drains often get clogged with hair, soap buildup, toilet paper, toothpaste and grime.
- Kitchen drains get clogged with soaps, fats, grease and food.
- Sewer drains can get blocked from tree roots or collapsed pipes. They also get blocked from any debris coming from bathroom or kitchen drains such as grease, food and hair.
If blockages are left over long periods of time they can cause flooding, structural damage as well as further damage to the pipes themselves.
Here’s some tips to help protect your drains from blockages:
- Try to limit how hard you make your drains work. Throw fat, oil and grease in the rubbish instead of down the sink.
- Only flush toilet paper down the toilet. Never flush wet wipes, nappies or sanitary items.
- Use drain strainers in kitchen and bathroom sinks to avoid food and hair clogging the drain. Clean the drain strainers regularly.
If your drain is running slow or appears clogged up, call 1300 553 173 to book your high pressure jet drain clean today.

Every job is different. It depends on what needs to be cleaned from the pipe and how easily the pipes can be accessed. To get the most accurate estimate of time give us a call. We can discuss the location and access of your pipes and the issues you have been having to give the best estimate.
The time a drain will stay clear will depend on the misuse of the drain, for example if grease, dust or other debris is going down the drain or if tree roots are a problem. We cannot give you a time on how long the drain will stay clear but we can provide video footage once the drain cleaning is complete to show that the drain has been cleared 100%. We can also give advice on how to protect your drains from becoming blocked again and solutions for tree roots in the drain.
At LCL Plumbing we pride ourselves on fair and transparent pricing but unfortunately it is not always possible to provide a quote for drain cleaning. This is due to the variable nature of the work and the time it can take. We charge by the hour and if you can give us enough information over the phone, we can certainly provide an estimate of hours. If you have had a drain camera inspection done then we may be able to give you a quote. Don’t hesitate to give us a call and we will be happy to help.
Drain cleaning will not damage a fully functional drain, however older drains may have the risk of damage as they may be completely rusted through or badly cracked. In these cases we will access the drain with a drain camera first and discuss the situation with you prior to any works. Drains that have been incorrectly installed can also be damaged by drain cleaning, particularly at access points and 90 degree bends which may be weakened by a lack of concreting.
All of our vans are equipped with the latest technology equipment to clear blocked drains fast so it’s not often we can’t clear a drain. The most common reasons we are unable to clear a blocked drain is when the drain has no access, the drain has collapsed or there is something in the drain that we can’t clear such as large tree roots or concrete. In this case we’ll provide you with a detailed, no obligation quote to repair the drain . We will also provide a report for you to get a second quote for your own peace of mind.
