Preventative drain maintenance:

If you’ve noticed your drains are taking longer than usual to drain or are making loud noises when you run the taps, we recommend having one of our plumbers take a look before the situation turns into an emergency. We’ll inspect all the drains and ensure they’re cleared and that any draining or leakage problems are taken care of. While we’re there, we can also take a look at any other plumbing problems you’re having (i.e. leaky taps) for added peace of mind.


We also conduct regular ‘hot-blasting’ for businesses that suffer from regular drain blockages, i.e. fast-food restaurants. Naturally, it can be difficult to clear all the build-up of grease in plumbing when you’re cooking all day, every day. To account for this, we schedule hot-blasting for local food businesses at regular intervals to ensure their operations aren’t held up by a pipe blockage.

Blocked drains

Is water draining slowly from your property? Or are you noticing loud noises and gurgling coming from your pipes? These are two common signs of a blocked drain, and it is imperative that you call in a professional as soon as possible to avoid the situation worsening. Plumb-Jet have the necessary experience and expertise to quickly and effectively diagnose and unblock drains in Tweed Heads. We offer a 24/7 emergency plumbing service for when you need us most, so you are never left without functioning drains for long.


Blocked toilets

A blocked toilet is a health hazard that requires immediate attention from an experienced plumber. At Plumb-Jet, our fully qualified plumbers are only a phone call away and aim to be with you as soon as possible to resolve your blocked toilet. As well as unblocking your toilet, we can investigate the cause and make any necessary repairs to your pipes and drains. Our toilet engineers are available to take care of toilets and urinals in both residential and commercial properties across Tweed Heads and the surrounding areas.


Blocked sinks

If you have tried to unblock your sink without success, or don’t know where to start, get in touch with Plumb-Jet. Our qualified plumbers will assess your sink to identify the cause of the blockage, advising you on any necessary repair work that may need to be carried out on your basin or pipes. We are fully equipped with specialist tools to remove even the most stubborn blockages without damaging your drainage system, enabling your sink to drain smoothly once again.


Blocked bathtub/shower

The drains in your bathroom can become clogged with hair, soap and a build-up of scale. If your bathtub or shower is draining slowly, or you have noticed an unpleasant smell emanating from the pipes, you may have a blockage. Plumb-Jet uses the latest equipment to effectively remove build-up from your drains, including water deposits and limescale. This enables your bath or shower to drain freely and eliminates the risk of dirty water backing up.


Blocked sewer pipes

Blocked sewer pipes can result in a back-up of dirty water in your house, as well as unpleasant smells that linger in your home. Plumb-Jet can identify the location of the blockage using CCTV and sonar pipe scanners, so you know for sure whose responsibility it is to pay for repairs. If the blockage is within your property’s sewer boundary, it is likely that you are responsible for fixing it. Our experienced plumbers offer a fast response time and efficient clearing of sewer pipe blockages, so you can get on with your day.


Blocked stormwater drains

A blocked stormwater drain can cause flooding and damage to your home, so it should never be ignored. Designed to drain excess water away from your property, garden or driveway, a blocked stormwater drain is a serious issue. If water is collecting outside your home or around the drain, it is likely due to a blockage within the pipes. Plumb-Jet plumbers can use specialist cameras and water jets to safely and effectively clear any blockage from your storm drain.


Blocked downpipes

Downpipes are responsible for draining water from your gutters away from your property, however, they can become clogged with leaves and garden debris. Plumb-Jet can unblock, repair and replace downpipes and guttering so that water can safely drain away from your property. We take care when clearing downpipe blockages to not damage your pipes and property, providing a quick and reliable service to homes across the Tweed Heads and Gold Coast areas.

Blocked drains FAQs

What are the common signs of a blocked drain?

We touched on two of the most common signs above (loud noises and slow draining), but there are other things to look out for too, including an unpleasant odour, toilet levels increasing when you run a tap and sewage seeping from a drain or manhole.


How can I prevent a blocked drain?

The most important thing you can do to prevent your drains from becoming blocked is to monitor the waste that goes down your drain pipes on a regular basis. This includes harmful substances which end up going down your sink or shower and flushing inappropriate objects down the toilet. However, there are steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of a blocked drain, including installing drain guards, using a drain cleaner and conducting regular hot-blasting.


What are the side effects of a blocked drain?

If you’re not careful about what goes into your drains, you could experience some unpleasant side effects, including foul-smelling water, damage to your electrical fittings and wiring, and leaking ceilings, roofs and walls.


Is it safe to unblock a drain by myself?

We wouldn’t recommend that you try to unblock a drain without expert help, but this is at your own discretion. If you choose to attempt it yourself, bear in mind that it can be incredibly messy and time-consuming without the right equipment or experience. You may also find it difficult to remove the cover and even locate the blockage.


How long will it take for you to unblock a drain?

With our expert technicians and state-of-the-art equipment, we can unblock a drain within a matter of minutes. Depending on the severity of the blockage and its cause, the process may take slightly longer, but either way, we’ll be able to solve your drainage problems before you know it.
