Milbur Plumbing: Sydney’s Drain Cleaning Specialists
One of the most overlooked facilities within our homes and business properties is our drainage system. Functioning correctly, our drains carry away dirty water and waste without fuss or fanfare, meaning we only tend to notice them when something is amiss.
While it may not currently be on the top of your to-do list, keeping your drains clean and free from debris should be a matter of routine maintenance and not left until a blockage forms. Allowing problems to develop until they become an emergency can lead to property damage and also subject occupants to contaminants that could harm their wellbeing.
Keeping things running smoothly involves preventative action. Milbur Plumbing offers comprehensive maintenance service, including professional drain cleaning, Sydney-wide.

Why It’s Important to Have Your Drains Cleaned
Regular drain cleaning should be undertaken annually and is considered one of the very best ways to reduce the number of plumbing problems within your property. This can save you money in the long run and prevent stressful emergency situations such as water leaking into your home.

Locate and inspect using CCTV
One of the tools within our plumbing arsenal is a snaking CCTV inspection camera. This appears as a reel of cable and is inserted into your drainage system using a controllable camera tip to see the inside of your pipework.
This is viewed live on a portable monitoring station allowing your plumbing professional and yourself to see the condition of the inside of your drains. Based on this information, Milbur Plumbing will recommend a cleaning solution.
Drain cleaning using eel or jet blasting
In the case of blockages and partial blockages, Milbur Plumbing will recommend the use of an electric eel or water jet blasting. Once we’ve located a problem or section of pipework that should be cleaned, we will apply one or both of these devices to your system, leaving it clean and free-flowing.
Experiencing a blocked drain in Sydney? Milbur Plumbing can help!
While we always recommend preventative maintenance of your drainage system including an annual clean, we understand blockages do occur as part of everyday life. In these events, Milbur Plumbing Blocked Drains employs the following techniques to resolve even the most stubborn blocked drain:
Drain snakes, also known as “electric eels” are flexible cables with a mechanical cleaning head attached. This thoroughly scrapes and dislodges any blockages within the pipework and has been a go-to tool for plumbers for decades. The forked or brushed end rubs away at anything lining or blocking your drain using considerable force to do so.
Professional drain snakes are capable of dislodging even the most powerful of blockages and are used by Milbur Plumbing in the case of particularly stubborn blockages or cleaning requirements.
- Fast, zero damage to pipework
- Non-invasive, no-dig cleaning
- No chemical solution
- Suitable for all drain cleaning situations
Milbur Plumbing will also, occasionally, rely on chemical reagents to dissolve residue lining drains and dislodge clogs. These power, caustic chemicals can not be bought over the counter in a store and should only be handled by professionals.
These are particularly good at dissolving drainage issues such as hair, fat, grease, and grime. After reacting with these, water is introduced to the drainage system to allow the dissolved matter to be flushed away safely.

Drain Cleaning Home Remedies
While nothing will get your drains cleaned quite as well as a water jet blast from Milbur Plumbing, there are a couple of things you can try yourself:
Tried and true, baking soda and vinegar is an old-fashioned remedy for drainage problems that have stood the test of time. Acting as a mild caustic reagent, this fizzy solution dissolves gunk and grime within the pipework and allows it to be flushed away, leaving your drainage system cleaner than it was before.
Simply mix around 170 grams of bicarbonate of soda in with 300ml of vinegar. Stir this until it becomes frothy and quickly pour it down the affected drain. Let this sit overnight before flushing the mixture away by letting the tap run.
You can also purchase commercially available drain snakes. These hand-powered tools are not as powerful as the ones used by professionals and do not have the same reach. Nevertheless, for mild, shallow blockages and cleaning they allow you to scrape and dislodge the lining of your pipework.
If you are in a pinch and do not have time to purchase a drain snake, a bent wire coathanger can work almost as well, just remember to bend a hook into both ends so you don’t lose it down the drain. While you can’t really damage pipework in this way, it is still recommended to contact professional plumbers such as MIlbur Plumbing as soon as possible.
