Jim’s Plumbing provide a blocked drain cleaning service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including Christmas, Easter and all other public holidays. In addition to that, we guarantee a same day service and can most often have a blocked drain plumber on your doorstep within just an hour* of your call or by filling out our simple online booking form, in a plumbing emergency.

No Matter the Time of Day or Night

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.

There used to be a time when blocked drain plumbers needed to employ hand-powered equipment that was heavy, cumbersome, ineffective and just plain exhausting. Thankfully, those days are long gone. With access to the latest in blocked drain clearing technology, including the latest electric drain machines (sometimes also called an electric eel), there’s no need to call anybody else.

Guarantee a Same Day Plumbing Service 24/7*

If you are tired of waiting for a plumber to attend, who is 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.

So, how does an electric drain cleaner work?

I’m glad you asked! With a flexible cable, or rod, and a variety of attachable cutting heads, the electric eel drain cleaning machine is inserted inside the affected pipeline where it slices through and dislodges most solid blockages, such as tree roots. The ability to change heads when required adds an element of versatility to the electric drain machine, making it possible to cut and remove a range of drain blockages. All of our Jim’s Plumbing blocked drain experts have access to one of these very effective electric drain cleaning machines, and can use them to remove clogs from those indoor problems like blocked toilet drains and blocked sink drains.

Electric Drain Cleaning

There are many different electric drain cleaning machines on the market these days, but our Jim’s Plumbing blocked drains clearing professionals have two which they prefer to use. Every one of our fully qualified and licensed plumbers can use either one to give you the best results for all your blocked drain problems. These are:

  • The Marco Drain Cleaner – using a winding drum system with a flexible cable of up to 23 meters to feed the machine’s tool into the blocked drain, the American Marco brand electric drain cleaner has a wide selection of interchangeable cutting and removal heads to reach, slice through and remove almost any drain blockage.
  • The Ridgid Drain Cleaner – this model is slightly lighter and more portable than the Marco. Again, made in America, the Ridgid electric eel drain cleaning machine uses a system of attachable rods to create the length necessary to find and remove the clog from the affected blocked drain.

So, what types of drain blockages is the electric drain cleaner able to remove?

Both models of electric eel drain cleaning machines are able to cut and remove tree roots, hair, and most other solid objects we might face in a blocked toilet drain, blocked bath drain, blocked sink or blocked laundry drain. If you find yourself with one of these problematic indoor drain blockages, contact Jim’s Plumbing as soon as possible, and we’ll be able to send one of our blocked drain experts to your home or business on the same day as your booking, or within the hour* in an emergency, with the electric drain cleaner and have that irritating blockage cleared in no time.

If your blockage is too far to reach, or too stubborn, for the electric drain cleaning machine to clear then our fully qualified, professional plumbers also have access to high powered hydro-jets. So, you can rest assured that no matter your drain blockage a Jim’s Plumbing plumber will have it cleared and cleaned in no time with quality workmanship guaranteed.

Our plumbers are available 24/7 ready and waiting to assist with your blocked drains.

No Obligation Quote for the Repair or Replacement of Drain Sections*

Stormwater drains commonly block up due to tree roots, dirt & silt lying in the pipes. 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.
