If your sink or toilet is overflowing with water, you likely have a blocked drain. This is repaired by either using a plunger or getting in touch with a skilled plumber. If the blockage is further down the sewerage pipes, it will require CCTV to locate and repair the problem. Blocked drainage can also cause serious health hazards such as flooding and illness through bacteria, so it’s important to fix this quickly.
Simple DIY Methods One Can Try to Unblock the Drain
How to Unblock a Toilet
If you’ve tried everything you can to unclog your drains and the problem persists, then perhaps it is worthwhile to purchase a plunger from your local hardware store. It is important to know that there are different types of plungers. For example, a toilet plunger is different to a shower or basin plunger so inform your store what you require the plunger for.
Drain chemicals are also an option but generally only work for lighter blockages. It is a good idea to keep a drain cleaning chemical in your home for those odd occasions when the water starts flowing slowly down your drains. This can be purchased at your local hardware store or supermarket.
How to Unclog a Shower
To unclog a shower in Melbourne, you’ll need to remove the drain cover on the floor of the shower. Then proceed to use the methods above. You will obviously require a different plunger than the one used for toilets.
How to Unclog a Kitchen Sink
Simply follow the same steps as for a shower or bath using the same plunger. It is a good idea to occasionally apply a small amount of drain cleaner into your kitchen sink to get rid of all the fat build ups which will accumulate over time.

A blocked drain could be caused by a build-up of hair, food, and other debris in your drains.
