After 15 years in the business, we are used to finding all sorts of things blocking people’s drains. But last week we had a new one. We were called to a property which was suffering from a drain blockage. We put our camera down the drain to do our regular inspection to see what was […]

All is not what it seems inside Melbourne’s sewer and stormwater drains. And the smells emanating from them are not what you’d normally expect. Recently The Drain Man was called to inspect a blocked sewer drain at a property in Melbourne. We conducted our regular camera inspection on arrival, which revealed a large mass of […]
Brendan “The Drain Man” Dover was invited recently to speak on 774 ABC Radio about the growing problem of ‘Fatbergs’ in Melbourne’s sewers. He joined Hilary Harper on her Saturday morning show, October 4th around 10.30am. Fatbergs are a growing problem, caused by fats and oils being poured down drains, which then cool and congeal. […]

As a sponsor of Hawthorn, we are naturally a little biased about the team’s fantastic victory on the weekend. So we just wanted to give a little shout-out to the Hawks for being the AFL Premiers 2014. Winning back-to-back premierships is an almighty task. Well done to the coach, all the players, the on and […]
It seems like everyone is talking about “fatbergs”. There was one in London last year that was the size of a London Bus. There was another in London last week that was the length of a Boeing 747. And there was another one here in Melbourne, in the Yarra Valley Water system. So what is […]

But sometimes, even the most advanced equipment won’t get the job done. Recently we visited a construction site where someone had accidentally poured concrete down an exposed drain. It was under a […]
There are stormwater drains we reline. And then there are STORMWATER DRAINS we reline. Recently we did one of the bigger drain relining jobs we’ve done for a while. The City of Monash had discovered one of its concrete stormwater drains was cracked, crazed and had a major dislodgement, causing it to block during heavy […]

Doing something yourself can sometimes be very rewarding. But there are times when the urge to “do it yourself” can get you into all sorts of trouble, as a new customer of ours recently discovered. He had a very severely blocked drain and despite the best efforts of our team to convince him that we […]
