We’ve Got Decades Of Plumbing Experience, Our Own Equipment, & Upfront Pricing
Again, we’re sure we don’t have to tell you this, but there are plenty of plumbers in Canberra who advertise a very sweet-looking $99 fee on their website, only to slug you with a much heftier invoice once they’re taking up space in your kitchen. We’re a family owned and run business with over 2 decades of experience under our belts, and we’re completely transparent with our pricing. In fact, most of the time you’ll find we’re incredible value for your dollar in the long run
“I don’t know if it is an employment requirement at Canberra Plumbing & Drains that you must be awesome and a hard act to follow, but Jade certainly is and so is Josh T, the technician who came out to look at the cooler. Not only did he get on my roof in the stifling heat, but he fixed the problem promptly and he explained what had happened and what the outlook was for the cooler. He is just a lovely man — genuine, efficient, and professional.”
– Eileen D
“These guys are fantastic! I managed to book in super quickly for an emergency issue. The booking window was only 2hrs and they called half an hour before so it was super easy for someone working full time. Jake was friendly and fixed the issue really quickly. He tidied up and left it all cleaner than it was before they came. Pricing was super reasonable as well considering the quality work 🙂 Huge thanks to the team!”
– Dallas Burkevics
“Great service. Turned up on time. Technicians friendly and informative. Mobile eftpos and online receipting makes the whole process seamless.”

Throughout Canberra, Jerrabomberra, and the Queanbeyan areas, we’re known as the folks you call when you need the job done right. The first time.
