Do you need your drains cleaned?

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 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.

Keep Your Drains Clean

Drain cleaning is one of the most commonly underestimated aspects of plumbing. Drain cleaning is such a crucial part of the overall efficiency of a residential or commercial property, but do you know the signs of a blocked drain, and would you know how to clean it properly?

It is so essential to make sure that a blocked drain is seen right away. The effects of a clogged drain are many: it can have a significant impact on the rest of your home’s ability to process water, can build up waste in pipes resulting in increased bacteria and mould, as well as an unpleasant odour. But this is where our drain cleaning services can help you.

The drain cleaning process involves removing root blockages and debris from nearby drains, pits, or pipes using several sophisticated practices, including pressure jetting and vacuuming.

LCL Plumbing provides many specialty emergency drain unblocking, drain cleaning, and high-pressure drain jetting practices throughout Melbourne.

Whenever you need it, we have many experienced drainage plumbers ready and waiting to attend to your needs, using the latest tools and equipment to efficiently maintain any residential and commercial drainage so drainage problems can be a thing of the past.

Need help with drain cleaning in Melbourne?

Here are 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.

The Benefits of Drain Cleaning

Having your drains cleaned provides a number of benefits, obvious and not so obvious. As debris and waste can build up inside your pipes, this can reduce water flow. Preventing any form of blockage can improve the water flow throughout the property.

Additionally, high-quality maintenance of your drains can make for a more pleasant smelling property. In any household, the blockages caused by grease, oils, and food scraps can create unpleasant smells and cause a buildup of unpleasant mould and bacteria.

Finally, it can be frustrating to hear strange noises emanating from your drainage, which is why a well-maintained drain will make for a more pleasant experience in the property and can have a positive impact on your entire plumbing system. A system that is looked after properly will prolong its life span will help you save money, and you can reinvest your savings back into your home.

FAQ's about drain cleaning in Melbourne

High pressure jet drain cleaning is the most effective and efficient way of clearing a blocked drain. LCL Plumbing utilises this technology as well as an electric eel/snake to clean your drain quickly and efficiently.

Our high pressure water jets use water pressure in excess of 5000 psi and are suitable for both domestic and industrial pipelines. Our plumbers can utilise different size jet cleaners up to 500mm in diameter. So you can be sure to receive the best drain cleaning service from us.

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 advise 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, 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 before any works. Drains that have been incorrectly installed can also be damaged by drain cleaning, particularly at access points and 90-degree bends which a lack of concreting may weaken.

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 cannot 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.
