If your drains need unblocking, you need hydro jetting.

Hydro-Jetting is efficient, economical, environmentally safe and provides a quick solution.

Hydro jetting is a powerful form of pressure cleaning to clear silt, grease, grime and debris from blocked drains and pipes. High pressure hydro-jetting can also be used to remove roots in drains by using specialized cutting tools driven by the water jets. Whether your drains are very slow-moving or completely plugged, hydro-jet cleaning is the answer. Sewer pipes, stormwater drains and blocked kitchen, laundry and bathroom drains, we can clear unblock the lot. Spraying disinfectant then kills any nasty bugs. We pride ourselves on leaving your environment sanitised to your satisfaction. We’ll have your blocked drain flowing freely in no time: no stress, no mess.

Testimonial for Central Plumbing

We recently moved into a property and soon discovered that the previous owners didn’t do regular maintenance on the storm water drainage. Every time it rained large pools of water would form and make the ground soggy and wet. Anthony inspected on a Saturday morning and scheduled for a more detail survey later the following week (the cost was kindly credited back when we proceeded with the new drainage work). The old drains couldn’t be saved and Anthony was from the outset open and honest about the likely costs. In the end it turned out not an easy job as the new drainage had to cross the council road reserve land, but Anthony completed the work on budget and to a high standard. He used only the best quality materials and I feel confident that the new drainage will last a long time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anthony for similar work.

Drain Cleaning Wellington

Why are my drains blocked?

There are many different reasons why a drain in your home has become clogged. Normal wear and tear over time can lead to a small clog, which if ignored, can lead to a larger blockage. This is why preventative maintenance is so important for spotting the small clogs before they develop further. Most bathroom drain clogs result when dirt, and hair binds to soap scum on the walls of drain pipes. Over time, this gunk accumulates and reduces water flow.

A few of the most common causes of blocked drains include:

  • Collapsed pipes
  • Grease
  • Hair
  • Food particles
  • Tree roots
  • Hygiene products

Blocked toilets are a nasty business.

These mainly happen when people drop products down the toilet they shouldn’t! These do not dissolve or break up. They block your pipes:

  • Tampons
  • Cotton-tipped swabs
  • Dental floss
  • In-organic diaper wipes
  • Cellphones
  • Kids’ toys
  • Debit cards
  • False teeth

Kitchen sink drains become blocked when cooking grease, fat and oil stick onto your drain pipe linings.

Add soap scum and undissolved food matter such as rice, which expands in water, and you’ve got a stubborn, gunky mess. The kitchen sink does not like fat. Tipping liquid fat down your drain seems a simple solution to get rid of it. Do it and when you expect it the least, a blocked drain will occur. When the fat, oil or grease cools (even if you blast it with hot water on its way down), it hardens and sticks to the pipelining. The simple fix is to dispose of your oil, grease and fats properly (and let this be a reminder as to why doctors are trying to get us to cut greasy foods from our diets!). Central Plumbing has a reputation for professionalism, skill, knowledge, workmanship and o time reliability. Central Plumbing unblocks drains throughout the greater Wellington region: Wellington City Lower Hutt, Eastbourne and Porirua.
