Blocked drains?

By using a proven, natural process with no heavy chemicals and without having to dig up your entire lawn, garden, walls or floors, we can unblock your drains.

“Out of sight, out of mind.” That best covers pipes and drains. When pipes and drains are in working order, nobody gives them much thought. The same can sometimes be said of your hard-working, local drainlayer. But then, leaks, clogs or slow drains appear and suddenly, you need a diagnosis and expert fix from someone you trust.

You can be sure that if we unblock your drains, the same problem won’t reappear just a few short weeks or even days later.

If your drains are blocked, one of the best ways to clear them is to use hydro jetting.

Hydro-Jetting is quick, economical, environmentally safe and provides a long-term solution.

Hydro jetting is a powerful form of pressure cleaning to clear silt, grease, grime and debris from blocked drains and pipes. High pressure hydro-jetting can also be used to remove roots in drains by using specialized cutting tools driven by the water jets. Whether your drains are very slow-moving or completely plugged, hydro-jet cleaning is the answer. Sewer pipes, stormwater drains and blocked kitchen, laundry and bathroom drains, we can clear unblock the lot. Spraying disinfectant then kills any nasty bugs. We pride ourselves on leaving your environment sanitised to your satisfaction.

We’ll have your blocked drain flowing freely in no time: no stress, no mess.

Testimonial for Central Plumbing

We recently moved into a property and soon discovered that the previous owners didn’t do regular maintenance on the storm water drainage. Every time it rained large pools of water would form and make the ground soggy and wet. Anthony inspected on a Saturday morning and scheduled for a more detail survey later the following week (the cost was kindly credited back when we proceeded with the new drainage work). The old drains couldn’t be saved and Anthony was from the outset open and honest about the likely costs. In the end it turned out not an easy job as the new drainage had to cross the council road reserve land, but Anthony completed the work on budget and to a high standard. He used only the best quality materials and I feel confident that the new drainage will last a long time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anthony for similar work.

CCTV Drain Inspection

Blocked drains occur for a number of reasons:

There are many different reasons why a drain in your home has become clogged. Normal wear and tear over time can lead to a small clog, which if ignored, can lead to a larger blockage. This is why preventative maintenance is so important for spotting the small clogs before they develop further.

Most bathroom drain clogs result when dirt, and hair binds to soap scum on the walls of drain pipes. Over time, this gunk accumulates and reduces water flow.

A few of the most common causes of blocked drains include:

  • Collapsed pipes
  • Grease
  • Tree roots
  • Hair
  • Hygiene products
  • Food particles

Clogged toilets are a nasty business.

These mainly happen when people try drop items down the toilet they should not!

These do not dissolve or break apart. They block pipes:

  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Cotton-tipped swabs
  • Dental floss
  • Pre-moistened diaper wipes
  • Telephones
  • Credit cards
  • False teeth
  • Kids’ toys

Kitchen sink drains clog when cooking grease, fat and oil stick onto drain pipe walls.

Add soap scum and undissolved food particles such as rice, which expands in water, and you’ve got a stubborn, gunky clog.

The kitchen sink does seem to beckon fat. Tipping liquid fat away seems like an easy solution on one will ever know about. Do it and when you expect it the least, a blocked drain. When the fat, oil or grease cools (even if you blast it with hot water on its way down), it hardens and sticks to the pipe walls.

The simple fix is to dispose of your fats, oils and greases properly (and let this be a reminder as to why doctors are trying to get us to cut greasy foods from our diets).

Pour cooled fat, grease or oil in a sealed package and throw it out in the rubbish. An easy and reasonably environmentally OK way to do this is with used tinfoil. (You could also throw the fats into used zip lock plastic bags that have come to the end of their useful lives.) Line a bowl with the tinfoil, pour the grease into it and throw it in the freezer. Just before rubbish day, take out the frozen grease package and chuck it in the rubbish.
