How Much To Clear a Blocked Drain?

Blocked drains can be cleared from as little as $120 and can obviously run into thousands of dollars if the drain should need replacing and excavating required. Blocked drains can be as easy as pulling hair from a shower grate, right through to rotting of a complete drain and even the use of the drain camera.

Whether you have a blocked toilet, basin, shower, waste or drain grate, or you have a sewer or stormwater blockage, our Jim’s Plumbers in Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane are experienced and can quickly and efficiently clean your blocked drains 24/7.

All our vans have an electric drain cleaning machine such as rigid and a high pressure water cleaner. We even have hydro jet cleaning machines and drain cameras, should a customer request these when making their booking.

We offer a 7 day drain cleaning service. Whereby, we clean blocked toilets, clogged main drains and showers that won’t flow. Our after hours drain cleaning service is slightly more than what we charge during the week however we are very competitive in the market with what we charge.

If you are tired of waiting for a plumber to attend, who isĀ unreliable, has not kept to the appointment time, or possibly can’t get to your location for a few days, then why not ring the reliable team from Jim’s Plumbing? We guarantee a same day plumbing service and will be on time, every time, 24 hours, 7 days a week for your blocked drain emergency.

The price to have one of our drain cleaning plumbers to attend is the same no matter if you are located in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.

With our pricing for drain cleaning we charge in 15 minute increments which we believe is a far fairer way of charging as customers are not being charged for full hours like that of many of our competitors. As we’ve previously stated a blocked drain could take fifteen minutes or could take hours in extreme cases. Many of Jims plumbing customers enjoy this form of invoicing. We know this as they continue to come back using our services time and time again.

If your sewer drains and continually blocking we are able to offer long term solution to dig up and excavate the problem area. However, we would give you a quoted price. So, you know exactly what you are up for before we commenced larger maintenance issues.

if a section of the drain is needing a replacement we are able to offer interest free terms *conditions apply* whereby the client only needs to be paying 10% upfront and the rest of the payment made over a series of months.

Customers need to remember the price is not everything it is important that you use a reprobel company such as Jims plumbing. Who are reliable and on time. We have the appropriate insurances and our plumbers are qualified to do the job correctly, once and once only. We believe at Jim’s plumbing we are able to deliver a professional drain cleaning service at a fair price.

This is a very common type of drain blockage. Stormwater drains commonly block up due to tree roots, dirt & silt lying in the pipes. Stormwater drains are the pipes that connect the pipes from the roof & the sumps in the garden, which then discharge to the water table (kerb) in the street. If any damage to your stormwater pipes has occurred from the blockage, your attending Jim’s Plumber will be able to supply you with a no obligation quote for the repair or replacement of drain sections.
