There is no anxiety quite like those first few moments after you realise you’ve gotten your toilet blocked. The fear that something deep down in the bowels of your house might burst, or come back up the path it went down.
The Inner City Plumbing team has spent 30 years wading through toilet blockages that seemed more in need of an exorcist than a plumber. But in all that time, there hasn’t been a blocked toilet Melbourne could throw at us that we couldn’t fix.
Not all toilet issues are an emergency. We can tackle an endlessly leaking toilet bowl or a toy stuck in a toilet trap relatively easily — you might be able to solve those yourself. But it’s not always easy to diagnose how badly affected your blocked drain is. Put us on the job, and we’ll guarantee your site isn’t at risk of becoming a swamp.
We insist on using industry-leading equipment and components for all our plumbing services, especially clearing blocked toilets. It’s not just about our preferences, though — it’s about yours. Quality tools enable quality service and allow us to design long-term plumbing solutions.
A blockage can travel through your toilet pipes and deeper into your plumbing system. As a full-service plumbing specialist, we have the tools and training to locate blockages anywhere in the system and remove them with minimal disruption to your site.
Sometimes, all we need is a plunger and a bit of patience.
Our high-pressure hose can clear deeply set clogs with ease.
Severe blockages can affect your site’s safety. We’ll sort it out.
Uh oh. Grab your valuables and run. We’ll be there in an hour.
Unblocking toilets isn’t always a tidy job, but we always do our best to respect the site we’re working in.
Toilets of all types can be unblocked.
Our plumbers are experienced in working with all different types of toilets and to the basic to most exotic cisterns.
Our plumbers are stocked with the right tools to quickly unblock your toilet. From excess toilet paper to kids toys, pipe obstructions can be cleared quickly.
With our vans patrolling the suburbs of Melbourne, we’re ready to respond to every call on the double. We’ve streamlined our booking process to make things as easy as possible for you.
While we’re still headquartered in Abbotsford, our plumbers aren’t strictly tied to the Melbourne CBD. These days, we happily service all suburbs within the Melbourne metropolitan area — and we still guarantee our one-hour emergency response time.
We provide plumbing services for all sites, including homes, apartments and other strata sites, as well as all commercial, industrial and public venues. If there’s a blocked or broken toilet anywhere in Melbourne, we’ll fix it.
Plumbing isn’t rocket science, but we approach it with the same level of care and zeal. There are really only three things you need to know about us:
That last point’s the most important one. As a family business, we’re fortunate enough to be able to share our tradecraft with the people we love the most. That’s the secret to our success — it’s the reason we’ve lasted 30 years.
Here are five clear signs your toilet has a blockage:
A blocked toilet can be caused by hair, larger debris, tissues or too much toilet paper being flushed down the toilet. Over time these blockages gradually build up, and the water draining away from the bathroom becomes slower and slower.
You may be able to unclog your toilet yourself using a plunger or a chemical drain cleaner. However, plunging doesn’t always work on deep clogs, and harsh chemical cleaners can erode older pipes. We recommend you leave the job in our capable hands.
External gullies, stacks and drains can become blocked with falling leaves, dirt and other detritus. If these drains become so clogged that water ceases to flow through them, then they can cause your toilet to block.
Well, what’re we waiting for? Leave us a message with all the details you can, and then get yourself away from any noxious toilet waste.
