Drain cleaning

Blocked drains or clogged drains? They are different ways to describe the same pesky plumbing problem in sewer or stormwater drains around your home.

You know the signs of a sewer issue – the kitchen or bathroom sink takes longer to drain, water pools around your feet in the shower, and then there’s the gurgling and that unpleasant smell.

Clogged stormwater drains can also be a worry. When it rains, you may notice pooling, leaking or puddling under your home or around it – or telltale overflowing gutters and downpipes.

Before your drain becomes completely backed up, and the situation spirals into a dreaded plumbing emergency, we encourage you to seek out the help of professionals. At Canberra Plumbing and Drains, we’re well-equipped to detect issues, clean and repair your drains.

Here is how we do it


Electric eel

Also known as a plumber’s snake, is useful when difficult clogs can’t be loosened with a plunger. It is perfect for the job, in many drainage situations, but not all of them.

Hand eel

Unlike the heavy electric eel, the hand eel is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. It is ideal for unblocking drains inside the home, such as vanities and sinks.

High-pressure water jetters

Far newer technology than the electric eel, in some cases, it can be a more effective drain cleaning solution because it can clean right to the circumference of the drain.

CCTV cameras

Sometimes, it is almost impossible to fully identify the cause and extent of a problem in your drains from above the ground. That is when a CCTV drain camera inspection is the right course of action.

If your drainage job is larger than a maintenance call, we can offer you the full package. Our sewer and stormwater repair service can dig you right out of trouble.
