How to clear a blocked drain

Boiling water

You could use boiling water if the blockage is from grease or soap. It is a quick and easy method to try.


Plungers are a very old fashioned way to dislodge blockages close to the plug. They work by forming a seal around the plug hole, followed by a vacuum effect that removes the blockage. Find out more

Natural cleaners

These cleaners can be used to try break drain blockages apart. There are a few methods, and a popular option is to use hot water, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. This may help with small blockages but isn't as effective if the blockage is caused by hair or other non-soluble debris.

Caustic cleaners

These cleaners can sometimes dissolve grease, fat, and oils. However, they can be expensive, not environmentally friendly and have toxic fumes, so always read the safety labels.

Drain snake

You can buy these at your hardware store, (eg Mitre10 or Bunnings). These can be good at clearing blockages like hair, but our customers have told us that they are a hit and miss option. Find out more
