Sinks & Basins

Common blockages in sinks & basins are caused by food scraps, grease, hair, toothpaste, and an accumulation of gunk over time, leading to slow draining and blocked pipes.

Problems can also be caused by tree roots, broken pipes or foreign objects. No matter the cause of your blocked drains, Contemporary Plumbing’s Canberra Plumbers can offer you a solution.

Toilets can become blocked from the excess use of toilet paper, foreign objects or the flushing of products not designed to be flushed.

Remember the 3 P’s (Poo, pee and toilet paper). If it doesn’t fall into these categories, it shouldn’t be flushed.

Tree roots are also a common cause of blockages in Canberra’s drainage systems.

We have extensive experience in clearing blocked drains in Canberra and getting toilets flushing again! If you require emergency plumbing give us a call:

Showers & Floor Wastes

If your shower water isn’t draining correctly, it may be due to a build-up of hair, soap, shampoo, and scum causing blocked drains. Our team of Canberra plumbers can quickly and effectively address this issue for you.
Tree roots or similar obstructions could also be causing the problem, but rest assured, we can handle it all.

Similar to shower drains, floor wastes can also pose drainage issues, causing blocked drains. If you’re experiencing problems with them, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’re here to help!
