Indoor blocked drains

Blocked toilet

A homeowner’s worst nightmare! 

Blocked toilets can overflow, causing sanitary issues and an unpleasant smell.

Sinks and basins

Everyday use can lead to accumulations of soap, grease, and food, causing slow draining or complete blockages.

Shower and bath drains

Hair and soap scum commonly clog these drains, leading to standing water and potential hygiene problems.

Appliance drains

From washing machines to dishwashers, lint and debris can obstruct appliance drains, affecting their performance.

Outdoor blocked drains

Gutters & downpipes

Leaves, twigs, and other debris can obstruct the flow of rain, leading to water damage and structural issues.

Stormwater drains

Blocked by leaves, rubbish, or sediment, these drains can cause flooding during heavy rains.

Sewer drains

When tree roots or household waste clog sewer drains, they can lead to unpleasant odours and serious backups.

Manholes & grates

The Flowfix way: identifying blockages and clearing clogged drains

At Flowfix, we combine cutting-edge technology with expert know-how to identify and clear blockages efficiently.

Experience hassle-free, effective solutions that restore your drains to optimal function.

Here’s how we tackle blocked drains from start to finish

Initial assessment
We start by discussing your concerns, evaluating the problem area, and determining the best approach for resolving the issue.
Visual test
Our trained technicians perform a visual inspection to assess the severity of the blockage and to identify obvious culprits.
Manual methods
Depending on the type of blockage, we may try manual methods like plungers or hand augers to initially dislodge the obstruction.
CCTV drain survery
Using high-tech CCTV cameras, we explore the drain’s interior to identify the root cause of the blockage for targeted treatment.
Chemical treatment
If suitable, we’ll apply specialised chemical treatments. These help break down the material causing the blockage without damaging your pipes.
HyrdoJet drain cleaning
For stubborn blockages, we deploy HydroJet cleaning technology that uses high-pressure water to disintegrate debris and clear the way.
Final inspection
A follow-up CCTV survey ensures the blockage is completely cleared, checking for any structural issues that may cause future problems.
Customer briefing
We conclude by briefing you on the work completed, offering maintenance tips, and ensuring you’re satisfied with the results.

Can’t say enough praise for this business. We had just moved into our new home when we found the sewage pipe was severely damaged. One call to Amy and she reassured us it was fine, Scott was out the next day and it was completely fixed the day after. They were very professional and efficient, it really helped a stressful situation. Can’t go wrong with this business!

We received excellent service from FLOWFIX, the storm water pipe was completely block with tree root. A good job, nice fellow doing the work. We will have them back to check and clean as required in 18 months. Used the hydrojet and drain camera. Very reasonable charge for the work.

I can highly recommend Scott and his team. We had a complete job from demolition to finish (kitchen, laundry and two bathrooms) and throughout the whole process, the whole team was courteous, professional and timely. The quality of workmanship was perfect and they were able adjust to all changes which we requested. We are very happy with the outcome.

I can highly recommend Scott and his team esp Dalton who had to fix a very difficult burst water mains in my backyard. They came promptly and did a fantastic job over very 2 wet days. I have also used them in the past to unblock drains and re-line my sewers and I have found them very reasonably priced.
