What if the blockage is not on my property?

A sewer choke or blocked drain can be cause by any number of factors, but the most common is a tree root or that someone has put something down the pipe that they shouldn't!

Sydney Water Sewer choke formA sewer choke may not always be in your private wastewater pipes, but instead might be in the public wastewater system. In this case Sydney Water are responsible to come and fix the blockage.

If we find the leak to be the responsibility of Sydney Water, then we'll call them and request they come out and fix the problem. You can be reimbursed in this case for any out of pocket expenses (like paying a licensed plumber to come out and inspect the drains). All you need to do is submit a sewer choke claim form to Sydney Water with a copy of the paid invoice.

​What is pipe relining?

Pipe relining is the process of repairing a cracked, broken, or crushed pipe or drain by placing a strong inner lining inside the old pipe without having to dig the pipe up. This no digging drain repair procedure provides a practical solution for drains located in hard to access areas such as under a concrete slab, driveway, or landscaping, as well as any other established structures.

Are wet wipes OK to flush?

No, nope, nada, never. Don't do it. If you're reading this on the toilet, save your drains DON'T FLUSH. Wet wipes are a huge problem for homeowners and councils across the country, and around the world. They don't break down in the sewage system like toilet paper does and are a major contributor of blocked drains.
