Blocked Drains


Clog Detection & Repairs

Blocked drains are inconvenient and can cause health and structural problems if not addressed promptly. At Tim Larkin Plumbing & Excavations we use the latest technology and tools, including cameras, to detect the exact location and cause of the blockage.

Based in Port Macquarie, we service all areas in the Camden Haven and also provide 24/7 services for emergency blockages.
Once we’ve located the original cause of the clogged drains, we can determine the best method of removing the blockage and clearing the pipes, without causing any unnecessary disruption.

Depending on the size, seriousness and flexibility of the clogs, we can rely on our high pressure water jetters and augers to dislodge the problem material and have water draining effectively again.

We work across residential, commercial, industrial and rural properties for blocked drains, we also specialise in installation, upgrades, repairs and maintenance for industrial waste water treatment systems.

What is the most common source of a blocked drain?
There are a few. Hair is one of the most commonly found blockages in shower drains for obvious reasons. In general though, blockages are usually the result of a few things. Soap, dirt, fats, oils and food waste will often bind together to form clogs that worsen over time. Some of these blockages are unavoidable and are just a fact of life. That is why routine checks and maintenance are so important.
