We can assist with all kinds of drainage issues

Blocked bathroom drains

Whether they're filling up with wastewater or are slow draining, you can call us anytime to get assistance with unblocking sink, bath or shower drains.

Blocked stormwater drains

Heavy rains and storms can bring to light blockages that cause issues like water pooling around your property or overflowing gutters. We can diagnose & clear stormwater drain blockages.

Blocked kitchen drains

Bad smells around your kitchen sink or a sink that won't drain are signs that you have a blockage. Give us a call for same day assistance.

Blocked sewer drains

While your blockage may be isolated to the sink, toilet, bath or shower, or in some cases, the clog may be found in the main sewer drain. We can help pinpoint the blockage & clear it.

Blocked toilet drains

Dealing with an overflowing toilet is not only gross, it's also a huge inconvenience. An overflowing toilet means water can’t pass through the pipes. If the problem persists, give us a ring.

Blocked laundry drains

Over time, buildup can accumulate causing water to spill from your washing machine drain or laundry drains to clog. If you need help clearing a blockage, give MSJ Plumbing a call.

I gave MSJ Plumbing a call straight away and they got there in a few hours and cleared the blockage. While I didn’t get to meet the guys that came over, my wife mentioned they were really friendly, polite and professional. They made sure they found the source of the problem and I really appreciated them giving me a call to explain what they’d done. Great service.

Clearing Techniques

How we clear blocked
drains & sewage lines


CCTV Inspections

Using CCTV cameras we can pinpoint the exact cause and location of a blockage and assess the structural integrity of your drains. This means that we’ll find the problem and address the solution faster, and let you know of any risks to be aware of for the future.   


Hydro Jetting Drain Cleaning

Our hydro jetting machines use high pressure water to cut through any debris, grease, tree roots. This powerful tool allows us to reach deep into the pipe to clear blockages without excavation.


Electric Eel Drain Cleaning

Our Electric Eel uses flexible cables and rotating cutting tools to clear blockages in sewer and storm water pipes, cutting through tree roots, grease, leaves and soil build-up.


Acid Treatment Cleaning

Minor drain blockages caused by hair, soap or grease may be resolved with a heavy-duty professional acid treatment.

Got a blocked drain or sewage line?

Don't risk using a cheap plumber or investing in a cocktail of supermarket drain cleaners. It may save you in the short term, but can end up costing you a lot more. Blocked drains or sewer lines that aren't cleared by a professional can lead to property damage or create unhygienic living conditions for you and your family. Get peace of mind by hiring a pro who can pinpoint the issue with the right equipment. We charge by the hour and usually fix most blockages within 1-2. It's a small investment that can save you time, money & future inconvenience.
