Blocked Drains and Sewer Pipes

Balwyn Plumbers

Are you having a problem with your toilet flushing too slowly or your sink not draining as it should? It is very likely that you have a blockage in your sewer or drain pipe that needs to be cleared.

Tree root incursion or debris build up in the pipe are the primary cause of most blockages. If left unattended, these type of blockages can often lead to further damage and more costly repairs.

At Balwyn Local Plumbing we use the latest CCTV camera technology to quickly locate and identify material blocking drainage pipes and sewer pipes.

CCTV Drain Camera

To accurately locate and identify the cause of a pipe blockage, we utilise a CCTV drain camera. The drain camera is fed through the pipe until the exact location of the blockage is determined. The blockage may be caused by tree roots, clay, leaves, gravel, or other waste matter.

Once the location and nature of the blockage has been identified we will quickly determine the best method to remove it and clear the pipe.


In the event that your blocked pipe is underground, it will need to be exposed for repair. We use a small excavator to uncover only the section of pipe that is affected. The excavator is able to operate even in small backyards to uncover your damaged pipes. This means a quicker repair and less mess and disruption to the area surrounding the pipe. Used together, the CCTV camera and excavator, will save a considerable amount of time, and therefore cost, to complete the repair.


Our plumbers can accept payment by EFTPOS or majot credit card with our mobile EFTPOS facilities.
