Finally a plumber in Melbourne who really knows small drain blockages
Small drain blockages can be annoying and smelly. You may have had a go at clearing the drain yourself with off the shelf products from Bunnings with no luck.
Whether its your sink, hand basin, bath or shower, we come prepared with equipment thats especially designed for smaller drains.
Smaller drains 50mm-40mm have really small tight bends that can be difficult for average drain clearing methods to work. Our specialised mini water jetting equipment and training allows us to access these hard to reach areas of the drain ensuring the drain is cleaned thoroughly.
Because we know Melbourne and have dealt with lots of small drain blockages before, you have the peace of mind knowing your drain will stay fixed long after we’ve gone.

Small blockages can happen in older homes (Richmond, St Kilda and older appartments in the CBD as well as Brunswick and Carlton) It depends on how old your house is and what ends up in your drains as well as what your drains are made of. The older drains in these areas tend to be made of galvanised steel which has rusted over time making it easier for these drains to block.
A lot of older houses in the Melbourne area, copper drains installed that are starting to block up more often because of their age.
Newer appartments around the Docklands and even Middle Park areas also have issues due to excess hair and toothpaste entering the drains which can be very difficult to clean out without specialised equipment
At Fix It Right Plumbing, we have invested in the training and equipment necessary to specialize in addressing small blockages. Our Melbourne plumbers will conduct a comprehensive analysis of your entire plumbing system and consult with you to gather as much information as possible before they recommend a procedure to clear the minor blockage.
More than a decade ago, the primary method for addressing small blockages in Melbourne was a cable drain machine (electric drain eel). They were a direct, relatively inexpensive, and a reliable method for clearing minor obstructions from both residential and commercial plumbing systems in Melbourne. While many Melbourne plumbers still employ these traditional methods, water jet machines are becoming more popular due to their precision and versatility. Notable advantages of using a jet machine include: 1. Reduced risk of jamming or getting stuck. 2. Suitability for indoor use. 3. Compatibility with CCTV camera systems. Your Melbourne plumber should undertake a detailed examination of your plumbing system and engage in a thorough discussion with you to gather all necessary details before deciding on the best approach.
Because we charge by the job and not by the hour, you'll know exactly how much the small blockage clearance will cost before we start. So you can sit back and relax while we address the issue, confident that there won't be any unexpected charges at the end.
Before initiating any blockage clearance procedures, we provide a clear explanation of our intended approach to address the minor obstruction and the reasons behind it. We also present a detailed cost estimate and ensure you fully comprehend the expenses involved before getting started. We only proceed when you are entirely satisfied with our plan, ensuring you remain in control throughout the process.
