Need a drain unblocker now?

Clogged drains causing mayhem? Nobody likes that sinking feeling when you’re washing your hands or taking a shower and water starts pooling in the basin, shower, sink or laundry tub. Even worse is that lovely aroma that comes wafting in your windows ….

We’ll have your blocked drain flowing freely in no time, no stress, no mess. 

You may have googled “how to unblock a drain” and are now reaching for a chemical drain cleaner to clear that clogged drain, but don’t. Before you start mucking round with highly corrosive chemicals, call 022 638 5704.

Chemical drain cleaners contain incredibly caustic chemicals that can actually eat away at your pipes and damage your plumbing system even further. They can also be extremely dangerous when mixed.

Just like our plumbers, blocked drains and plumbing issues don’t take holidays or only turn up between 9:00 and 5:00, Monday to Friday. That’s why Central Plumbing Wellington offers emergency drain unblocking services for residential and commercial plumbing repairs. In an emergency, we take immediate action.

What’s blocking that drain?

At Central Plumbing Wellington, we understand the frustration when you suspect you have a blocked drain but can’t see into your pipes. Fortunately, our Wellington plumbers can see what’s up with or stuck down your drains.

By using specialised CCTV cameras, we can get a full visual inside your drains without tearing up floors, breaking down walls or destroying your garden. From above ground and up to 15 metres deep, CCTV drainage inspection lets us locate faults, cracks or obstructions in your drainage system.

If there is an issue, we can fix it efficiently to get your drain back to doing what it should: stuff in, stuff out.

Testimonial for Central Plumbing

We contracted Anthony and his team at Central Plumbing to replace our sewage and storm water pipes. Along the way he found non-compliant work on our property and promptly advised us so he could replace them.  Anthony has great product and practice knowledge and was good at talking us through the process. He was professional and very reliable with excellent to attention to detail. We look forward to working with Anthony and his team for future work.

How to unblock a drain?

By using a proven, natural process with no heavy chemicals and without having to dig up your entire lawn and garden.

Our hydro jet drain cleaning equipment can penetrate deep into built up debris, and flush out rocks and accumulations of grease, silt, fats, soap, dirt, mineral deposits and other components of sludge. We can even cut through tree roots.


Hydro jetting uses the power of high pressure water to unblock and clean underground drain pipes.

From clogged sinks or toilets to backed up sewer pipes and blocked stormwater drains, we can perform all types of drain unblocking safely and efficiently.

First, we identify where and what the clog is, and then we blast it!

Cleaning, not just unclogging

We insert a special hose and cleaning head which clears without damaging drain pipes. These high-pressured jets can easily flush up to 375 mm pipes/drains using up to 4000 pounds per square inch (psi). Hydro-jetting has the power to burst open the toughest blockages. It also washes the drains, flushing debris and leaving lines clear.

Drain pipes are once again inspected with a sewer line video camera to ensure all build up or roots have been removed and that the line is clear and functioning.

This form of pressure cleaning is suitable for both commercial and residential customers as well as large industrial sewerage pipes.

Central Plumbing carries out emergency drain unblocking throughout the greater Wellington region: Wellington City Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt, Eastbourne and Porirua.

Local, trusted, family owned and operated, we’re the emergency drain unblockers Wellington calls to get stuff moving. Nothing gets in our way.
