A Guide To Preventing And Dealing With Blocked Drains
It’s easy to take modern plumbing for granted. When the pipes are leak free, toilets are flushing and drains flowing, most of us don’t give our plumbing systems a second thought UNTIL we notice something is Off!
Usually you will notice the bathroom sink is not draining quickly, or you are standing in water in the shower or the toilet water is rising when you flush with weird noises and smells as an added extra.
While preventative maintenance and proper foresight can help keep blocked drains at bay, you could still end up having to deal with a blockage.
There’s nothing wrong with trying to fix the issue yourself, but know when it’s time to call a blocked drain plumber at Jet Plus Plumbing to help.

Common Causes Of A Mulgrave Blocked Drain
There are seemingly innocent products all over your house that pose a slow and steady threat to your drains. Every drain in your home has its own set of culprits.
Soap scum, hair and dirt slowly work their way down the shower drain. Over time, the buildup will cause a nasty drain blockage. Before the drain becomes completely blocked, you’ll notice the drain slowing and water taking longer to drain.
Hair gets into the bathroom sink too. Toothpaste and soap residue will also build up over time, backing up your drain.
We all love having a garbage disposal in prime working order. The problem is, it almost dares you to cram any type of kitchen waste down its throat. The main drain blockage reasons are food particles and kitchen grease.
How To Keep Your Mulgrave Drains Clear
Prevention is the most effective way to save an emergency call to a plumber. Next, we’ll go into some of the most effective methods of preventing drain blockages.
Shower: Keep the drain stopper clean. The drain stopper in your shower will help keep your drains flowing. However, hair and soap scum will start making its way through if you don’t keep the drain clear.
Toilet: The most important thing to keep in mind is knowing what is flushable and what isn’t. When in doubt, always throw something away rather than risking a blockage.
Kitchen Sink: Keep the grease out and be careful about what types of food waste you put down the drain. Greasy meats and anything with bones should be disposed of in the bin. Also make sure to run water when you run the garbage disposal and don’t power the disposal off too soon.
Take Extra Preventative Measures With Mulgrave Drain Checks
Blocked drains can still happen even if you are diligent about taking the proper precautions at home. That’s why you should schedule periodic maintenance with a professional plumber. At Jet Plus Plumbing, our plumbers in Melbourne perform a plumbing tune-up. The real benefit with a tune-up is that not only does it keep the drains flowing, but a thorough inspection will catch small problems before they become big ones. There are a few key services every plumber should provide.
Too many people assume the only time to call a plumber is when a drain is blocked or a pipe is broken. Calling us to perform periodic maintenance will actually save you money and time over the long term.
Have A Blocked Drain In Mulgrave?
Maybe you are reading this because you have a blocked drain right now and need to get it handled ASAP. Well, you came to the right page. Let’s get into the best way to go about having a blocked drain cleaned, along with a few things to avoid.
Know Your Limits When Trying To DIY
If you have a blocked drain, the first thing you would do is try the quick and easy fix first. Those liquid drain clearing solutions you find at the store will only offer a short-term fix at best.
Some homeowners will try to take things a step further before calling in a professional plumber by attempting to ‘snake or hose’ the drain themselves. The ‘snake’ which is also referred to as an auger, is a coil that can reach deep into a drain to clear out the blockage. Putting a plumbing snake in the inexperienced hands of a homeowner could easily end up doing more harm than good.
First of all, there’s the risk of using the auger incorrectly and damaging the pipes. It’s also not uncommon for augers to break as the result of misuse. You could end up having to pay to replace the rented snake, and having to hire a plumber – making the job more expensive than it needed to be.
How Does A Plumber Perform Mulgrave Drain Cleaning?
The first thing a professional plumber will do is get to the bottom of what exactly is causing your blockage. In some cases, it may be necessary to run our specialised camera through your pipes to take a look at the problems and any potential complications that could arise. Once the issue is properly diagnosed, there are a number of solutions we will consider.
Hydro-Jetting: This is a long-term drain cleaning solution that uses extremely high-pressure water jets to flush out your pipes. The hydro-jetting process removes blockages along with debris and residue to leave your pipes clean. Jet Plus Plumbing is a specialist blocked drain plumber in Melbourne.
What About Mulgrave Sewer Blockages?
A blocked sewer line can cause problems throughout your home or business, and even lead to a nasty sewage backup if the issue isn’t addressed promptly. Sewer issues will typically have a few of the following warning signs.
Hydro-jetting is also an effective method of clearing out sewer lines. However, in severe cases, the sewer line may need to be repaired or replaced of the cause of the blockage is a tree or plant root growing through the main sewer pipe. The most efficient way to have this done would be through trenchless sewer replacement. This method requires specialised equipment that allows us to replace a sewer line without having to dig a big trench through your yard.

About Mulgrave, VIC
Mulgrave is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 25 km south-east of Melbourne's Central Business District, located within the City of Monash local government area. Mulgrave recorded a population of 19,889 at the 2021 census.The suburb takes its name from Mulgrave Castle in the English County of North Yorkshire. Sir George Phipps, the Earl of Mulgrave in the Peerage of Great Britain, served as the Governor of Victoria from 1879 to 1884. The suburb in turn gave its name to the Mulgrave Freeway, which was later renamed to the Monash Freeway.== History == The first settler in Mulgrave parish (a division of the County of Bourke, which covers the Melbourne urban area) was Thomas Napier, in 1839. He was a Scottish builder who first reached the Colony of Victoria in the mid-1830s. Napier settled on the banks of Dandenong Creek and built his homestead in the Bushy Park Wetlands, in what is now Jells Park. None of the original homesteads remain, though some were demolished as late as the latter part of the 20th century. Remains of some homesteads were uncovered during the construction of the EastLink Tollway, temporarily halting work while they were archaeologically examined. The first Mulgrave Post Office opened on 1 January 1869 but was renamed Wheelers Hill in 1888.
