Reasons for blocked drains on the Gold Coast & in Brisbane

Much of the Gold Coast is built on a coastal plain and multiple waterways snake their way throughout the area. A range of soil types including loose, sandy soils mean that pipes can move over time causing broken pipes and drain blockages.

Another common issue in the Brisbane and Gold Coast areas is blockages caused by tree roots. Roots can completely block a drain in their search for water, wreaking havoc on drainage systems.

In Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, visitors and locals alike are spoiled for choice with a myriad of cafes and restaurants. Over time, grease, oil and fat is washed down restaurant drains, building up along pipe walls and creating blockages. These blockages can also trap debris, exacerbating the problem.

If you are a restaurant owner on the Gold Coast or in Brisbane, it is likely that you will experience a blocked drain at some point. Our specialist plumbers know that you can't afford to wait for a plumber to arrive. When you call Oceanside Services you can rest assured that a blocked drain won't cause you lost business. Contact our blocked drains team today to receive the best, on time plumbing service on the Gold Coast and beyond!

Sewer Blockages

For sewer blockages we generally use an electric eel or high pressure water jetter. For any minor blockages hand rods may clear blockage without the use of specialized equipment. Oceanside Services also specialized in clearing blockages to septic systems and grease traps.

Storm-Water Blockages

Generally storm-water blockages are caused by a broken pipe with root ingress or dirt and silt build up. We recommend use of high pressure water jetter as this machine has a much higher success rate of removing dirt and silt rather than an electric eel and hose.

CCTV Pipe Camera

For re-occurring blockages we can use a CCTV pipe camera to locate the cause of the problem. Snap shot photos and video footage of the blockage and drainage system are available for your reference if required. Once a blockage has been located then a quote can be provided for repair works.
