The best solution when drains are beyond repair

When stormwater or sewer pipes are blocked or damaged beyond repair, replacement is the best long term solution. Jim's Plumbing specialises in drainage excavation and is available 24/7 for emergency repairs across Australia.

Drain Excavation Plumbers

Sewer and stormwater drains can easily become damaged or clogged over the years. There's the intense pressure of soil pushing down upon them, invasive tree roots looking for nutrients, plus a whole array of blockages which could cause a big headache.

With the professional experience of Jim's Plumbing by your side, we can tackle any stubborn blocked drain and provide thorough, long term repairs for your home.

Unfortunately, this often includes digging up your pipes and replacing them. Drainage excavation is seen as a last resort due to the need to dig up drains, however, it's the only option when a blockage cannot be removed or the drains are too damaged for pipe relining.

Our team has over 15 years of experience in drainage excavation and blocked drains plumbing. So if you need 24/7 emergency repairs we can take care of it all. We will also take care of the customer, offering fast attendance within the hour to no additional after hours fees for the weekend or on public holidays.

Meanwhile, our plumbing services can be paired with a no deposit, interest free payment plan to keep you in control of any job, big or small. There's no need to postpone any required work because it's sprung up out of nowhere.

With the help of Jim's Plumbing, you can enjoy long lasting drainage excavation and pipe replacement without sacrifice. Just give us a call today and our call centre can help you organise a visit from a local, reliable plumber.

Stormwater and Sewer Drainage Excavation

When your drains have blocked the problem usually lies deep within the pipeline. It could be a nasty root infestation or stubborn foreign objects which are wedged deep down. The issue could even be a damaged or collapsed drain.

No matter what, Jim's Plumbing has all the tools to tackle the job. Our plumbers are highly qualified and licensed for drainage excavation, pipe relining and more. We offer a whole suite of plumbing services to ensure your pipes are flowing again.

With technicians operating on a 24/7 basis throughout Australia, if you’re in urgent need of drainage clearing, we can fix it on a weekend or public holiday. In an emergency plumbing situation, we can even be there within an hour* of your call.

Once on site, our plumbers will examine your pipes using a CCTV drain camera to fully inspect the blockage. This helps them determine if an alternate method is best, such as a hydro jet drain cleaner or electric eel, or if excavation is the only option.

If that is the case, we always endeavour to minimise interruptions to your day. We understand that digging up your garden is a big, and sometimes messy job. However, we work diligently for a smooth pipe replacement and installation so you can rest easy at night knowing everything is in working order.

Drainage Excavation Cost

The price of drainage excavation is undoubtedly one of the first things any customer thinks of, and rightly so. Heavy machinery is involved, landscaping will be disrupted, while your pipeline will be replaced.

Unfortunately, it is just one of the more expensive plumbing jobs no matter where you go. This is why Jim's Plumbing puts customer satisfaction first. All of our drainage excavation services can be covered by a $0 deposit, interest free payment plan** for peace of mind.

You won't have to worry about the cost of excavation or drain repairs thanks to our no deposit offer. Once you have received a fixed price quote upfront, the payment plan is a simple way to get important work completed without delay.

Application is incredibly simple, as your plumber can walk you through the process while on site. Approval is often granted within minutes, which means no time is wasted before the job begins.

In no time your garden will be back to its beautiful self, your pipes will be happy, and your finances will remain strong and healthy.

Paula, VIC 5 stars rating

Brilliant job, cleaned up after

We had two old toilets removed and two new ones installed. I loved that the two old toilets and new packaging were all removed so we didn't have to hire a skip bin!
Sonya, WA 5 stars rating
