A blocked sewer needs to be fixed fast before it causes any further damage to your home. We have been fixing blocked sewers every day for over 20 years. This means we will diagnose the cause of the blockage quickly, clear it and advise what needs to be done to help avoid further blockages.


At Quick Service Plumbing we specialise in blocked sewers, drains, toilets, baths, showers, and anything in between. No matter what type of blockage you have, we can fix it.

How we Will Fix your Blocked Sewer

We will first identify the specific issue causing the the drain to be blocked. We do this by using the latest technology, including CCTV technology. This means we take the guesswork out of diagnosing the problem as we can pinpoint exactly where the blockage is.

If the cause of the blockage is tree roots we will use specialised root cutting tools to unblock the drain. If the blockage is caused by foreign objects in the drain, we will use a jet pressure unit to flush out the debris and clear the pipes.
