We all saw the colourful and hysterical memes that were going around during the Covid isolation period and one in particular gave us a chuckle. It was the implication that Plumbers would be very busy unblocking drains as a result of all the paper towels being flushed down the toilet due to the toilet paper shortage.
Funnily enough we did actually find ourselves unblocking more drains than usual but we are happy to report that our customers were not flushing their paper towels down the toilet. In all the craziness going on around the country and around the world, it is fair to say that Canberra has done remarkably well in containing the crisis and most people did the right thing by community standards. It was a big learning curve for all and I think most people just did their best to navigate through a new way of life.
It is nice to see a somewhat return to normalcy in some areas of life and we certainly look forward to a future of social activity and travel.
We trust that you all have an ample supply of toilet paper these days and we encourage everyone to ONLY flush toilet paper down the toilet. If you are in need of toilet paper… let us know and we will gladly help!
Have you seen our new bus advertising? With the help of Canberra buses, we are doing more to spread the word about our premium plumbing services around the suburbs of Canberra. Look out for our flashy ads featured on the back of local buses North and Southside.
We know that our $0 call out fee and upfront pricing is of great importance to Canberra locals who appreciate the peace of mind that comes with a flat rate fee with no hidden costs. Hopefully more people will see our ads and realise that they do not need to pay a call out fee for plumbing services. We also offer free, no obligation quotes!
We service all areas in Canberra so just give Tony a call and he can help you with all your plumbing needs. No job is too big or too small and he is also very quick to respond.
See you around!
Note: $0 call out fee applies Mon – Fri between 7.30am and 3.00pm unless otherwise waived by the plumber.
What a year 2020 is turning out to be. It’s safe to say that the current health crisis has affected each and every one of us in Canberra, around Australia and around the world.
We are doing all that we can to keep ourselves and our customers safe whilst enduring the Covid-19 pandemic by adhering to government advice and restrictions in place. We are still providing plumbing services throughout Canberra and offering customers the same efficient service that we are renowned for. Our plumber is taking extra care by implementing extra hygiene practices and will not be available for any plumbing services if he is not feeling well.

Jet Blast Plumbing is a local family business. With 25 years plumbing experience and a great work ethic, we take great pride in servicing the Canberra region and surrounds.
We are known as Blocked Drain Specialists as we effectively unblock drains with a powerful high pressure water jetter. Boasting 31 horsepower and expelling 31 litres of water per minute, our water jetter is the best option when seeking to clear a blocked drain efficiently and effectively. The sheer velocity of the water penetrating through the nozzle is strong enough to cut through tree roots and clear blockages.
We offer a quick response time and a flat rate for all plumbing, drainage, hot water and gas fitting jobs. A flat rate is often re assuring to our customers as they are aware of the cost before commencing and don’t need to worry about an expensive hourly rate if the job seems to take longer than expected. We do not charge a call out fee during trade hours which is also pleasing to our customers. On most occasions we are able to provide an fixed price quote over the phone but there are times when we need to visit the job location in order to give an accurate quote and in this case we do not charge a fee.
Jet Blast Plumbing is available for all jobs, big and small. From emergency call outs, leaking taps and toilets, hot water heaters, dishwasher points to bathroom renovations, granny flats and new homes. No job is too big or too small.
Emergency call outs often catch us by surprise and our customers are so relieved to have these unforeseen plumbing issues resolved quickly, especially when they strike at an untimely hour. We often hear back from our emergency customers expressing their gratitude and appreciation for even answering the phone and heading out to attend to their jobs while most of our fellow Canberran’s are warm and cozy in bed sleeping!
We have a strong base of happy customers who are delighted with the quick response time and quality workmanship. Forget the usual Tradie reputation for being late, this plumber is usually early!
For all plumbing needs, call Tony on 0412 30 20 40
Emergency plumbing situations can often arise at the most inconvenient and disturbing times, much to the disappointment of the tenant or owner of a house, unit or commercial complex. What can be even more frustrating is to call an emergency plumber who does not answer the phone.
We know that time is precious, especially in the hustle and bustle of life these days. When a valued customer of Jet Blast Plumbing takes the time to send some positive feedback or post a review, we really appreciate the time and effort taken to do so.
Well it is now mid February 2015 so most of us have settled into the New Year and are ready to buckle down and start ticking off those New Year Resolutions.
Jet Blast Plumbing was recently featured in the Canberra Chronicle Trades and Services directory as the “Tradie of the Week”. Thank you to the Canberra Chronicle for this recognition and opportunity to showcase our family business. We take great pride in servicing the plumbing needs of Canberran’s and especially enjoy receiving positive feedback. It is always a win/win to have happy customers.
Jet Blast Plumbing is delighted to announce the recent acquisition of a brand new high pressure water jetter. The MAKO Water Jetter is a welcome addition to the fleet, providing our Canberra plumber with an all powerful tool that will effectively unblock drains.
