Overflowing drains are something nobody wants to deal with, but they can happen all too easily as a result of storms, rainfall and age – an issue that has been particularly common with all the recent heavy downfalls we’ve had here in Melbourne.
To sort this out as quickly and efficiently as possible, the best thing to do is turn to Newman Plumbing. Our reliable team can travel anywhere in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, helping you get back to your normal day-to-day life as soon as possible. Read on to find out more about our services.

But First, What Is Causing Your Drains To Overflow?

There are a few things that can cause havoc with your drains. It could be as simple as heavy rainfall that leads to your drains overflowing, tree roots damaging the pipes or a build-up of silt and debris. When it comes to dealing with these issues, prevention is better than cure, so regular cleaning and clearing of your drains is key. If a storm or heavy rainfall is forecast, contacting our team is advised to ensure water can flow freely through your drains and away from the foundations of your building.


Our Specialised Equipment

At Newman Plumbing, we are well-equipped for clearing stormwater and sewer drains thanks to our specialised drain cleaning equipment. This includes a mechanical drain cleaning machine, a powerful water jet with associated cleaning nozzles, a pipe locator and a diagnostic drain camera for drain assessments.

Using this specialist plumbing equipment allows us to get to work quickly, clearing the drains on your property and identifying any problems that could be causing overflowing and backups. With your permission, we’ll then address the underlying cause and carry out any repair work that’s needed.
If you’ve noticed an issue with your stormwater or sewer drains, it’s best to get the problem addressed sooner rather than later. The full excavation of these drains can result in costly restoration work to your home’s landscaping and pathways, which we know you’ll want to avoid.


Contact Our Experienced Plumbers

Here at Newman Plumbing, we have more than 30 years of experience in locating and advising customers about issues with their property service drains. Recently, we have been even busier, helping homeowners deal with the damage caused by the heavy rainfall across Melbourne in the past couple of weeks. If this has affected you, make sure to get in touch with us today – it’s always best to call a professional rather than attempt to clear stormwater and sewer drains yourself.
