Hero Plumbing blocked sewer Sydney

Sewers are the part of your plumbing that transports the waste water away from your home to underground sewer mains. It is never an ideal situation when your sewer is blocked or clogged. While a clogging or blockage in your home is far easier to deal with than a blockage in your sewer pipes, a blocked sewer could still result with sewage coming back up through the drains, leading to damage and pricey restoration.

One of the most obvious signs of blocked sewers in Sydney is water backing up out of drains or toilets and a gurgling noise coming from the drains, even when they are not being used.

The appearance of a blockage is accompanied by the following consequences:

The occurrence of an unpleasant smell coming from the drain hole of the sink or other sanitary equipment
When using a sink or bath, you may notice that the water is not removed to the drain hole (this also indicates the clogging of the system)
Water level raising in the toilet

Grease sewer blockage

Fats, oils, and grease can cause serious problems in your sewer system. When these substances enter the sewer system, they can cool and harden, sticking to the inner walls of sewer pipes. Over time, as more fats, oils, and grease are added to the system, these blockages can build up and harden, eventually completely plugging the pipes. The hardness of the blockages makes them very difficult and costly to clean out and repair.

Tree root infestation sewer blockage

You may be at risk of sewer blockage if you have a tree near your sewer pipes. Tree roots are naturally attracted to water and will grow towards water sources, like water pipes. Once the roots reach the water pipes, they can grow into the pipes and block them. This can cause major problems for your home, including water damage and flooding.

Foreign object sewer blockages

Wet wipes, jewellery, toys, even hair and soap scum can clog your sewer pipes. Hair can become tangled around objects in the pipes, while soap scum can build up and create a barrier that prevents water from flowing through. If you have small children, you may find that toys or other objects have been flushed down the toilet as well as makeup wipes. Other larger objects have also been known to find their way into sewer systems by entering open drains and gutters, and can cause severe blockages if not removed.

Garden waste sewer blockages

Garden waste consists of any organic material that is produced by gardening, including grass clippings, leaves, twigs, and branches. It can also include fruit and vegetable scraps, and even flowers. While most of this waste can be composted or used as mulch, some of it will inevitably end up in your sewer line.

Clean blocked sewer pipes

If you are experiencing a blocked sewer in Sydney, the answer you are looking for isn’t the expensive chemical products or DIY methods. These will do very little in terms of removing the blockage and on top of it, there is a high risk of chemicals corroding the pipes. Instead, you can call Hero Plumbing the moment you suspect you may have a blocked sewer. Sewer line cleaning involves using a drain snake, or an auger, through the blockage to clear it. If we can’t locate the blockage, we will send a camera down to inspect where the problem lies. With our tools and the skills of our plumbers, there is no blockage that we cannot remove. We also utilise a high-pressured water jet that demolishes everything in its path – even tree roots. All without damaging the sewer pipes.

Christopher Chow

I called Hero Plumbing to unblock a shower drain and was unable to get a quote over the phone, but Sam the owner was here same day. After his first try, he made quick work of the blockage. I opted to also get the acid cleaner stuff poured down. Sam had run out, but made a trip to go pick some up to finish the job. If you opt for this treatment make sure you can easily air the bathroom as it’s extremely strong and produces a lot of fumes. Great Service and Honest Pricing.

Sarah Lincon

Hero Plumbing has been excellent since there first phone call.
I spoke to a gentlemen names Sam which he organised a technician to come and replace our hot water heater.

Jared Evans

We've used Hero Plumbing previously. Both times reliable and flexible with changing times (helpful during covid ISO periods!)
Hayden was on time and explained the issue clearly, fixed it,then also did some extra checks on water pressure and taps to ensure there were no underlying issues.
Would recommend their services.

Brilliant service from the first phone call to Hero Plumbing as Sam the manager booked us in very efficiently. I received a confirmation  email, a phone call on approach and all went smoothly & work conducted was beautiful . The team did a great job even dig up on our sewer and cut concrete & repaired the issue and our sewer is running like a dream.
Thanks for your great efforts guys!


Victoria Barmina

I knew Sam when he was working alone. And from the first time I was pleasantly surprised by his work. A little later I found out that he has his own business. I am very happy about that. And I am very glad for myself that I have such a company that I can always rely on.

Thank you for your work. People need you very much.
