North Shore Plumbing Specialists
Getting your plumbing in tip-top shape is not an especially big priority for most North Shore homeowners. Maybe it’s because the majority of your plumbing is out of sight and out of mind so you really can’t see when something is going wrong until it’s made its way through your walls or is pooling in your backyard.
The reality is that part of your property ownership responsibilities includes negotiating plumbing issues, big and small. Not a fun topic but a reality that comes with your proximity to the city, excellent schools and quality community amenities that make Sydney’s North Shore such a popular place to own property for living and investments.
The great news is that when you get onto plumbing issues early you can get professional help in record time and get back to your dream lifestyle with zero fuss and bother.
Once something goes wrong you will need help to fix it quickly, which is where our Sherlock Drains unblocking and pipe relining services are in high demand.
The Sherlock Drains company is built on strong ethics and quality business values. We care about the property we visit, be it an owner-occupied home, tenant, strata building or commercial building, we take the time to investigate the issues and know what your needs are inside out.

HAVE AN URGENT DRAIN PROBLEM THAT NEEDS FIXING?
FIX MY DRAIN!
Usually the problem of blocked drains is caused inside your home with foreign materials being washed down that aren’t able to decompose easily and become trapped, such as fat, oil, hair, soap and food particles, but even the most diligent homeowners can experience blocked drains from time to time as pipes deteriorate or tree roots find their way in.
When heavy rain strikes outside grass, bark, leaves and soil can be washed down drains and get stuck. This can cause issues that might not be as obvious until the next rain which can be a really big problem for homes around Turramurra with higher-than-average rainfall.
As soon as you notice early warning signs of drain blockages make sure you take action. Small signs can be gurgling or slurping noises, bad smells or slow drainage. The longer you leave it the more the issue will build and the bigger the chance of bacterial growth and long-term drain damage.
Sherlock Drains provide cost-efficient and long-term solutions for your clogged drain problems. Our years of experience specialising in correcting block drains gives us the best tools and ability to get to the core of the problem quickly as well as practical advice to prevent the problem from reoccurring.
You want the waterfront view, but not if it’s taking over your backyard. Broken pipes can make a mess of your property and can be costly and difficult to replace. When you get onto your pipe issues early you have the option to carry out pipe relining instead of replacement. This uses modern technology to reinforce your pipes making them watertight without the need for digging. Pipe relining seals a flexible insert to your existing pipe walls with a resin treatment to make pipes strong for decades to come.
Burst pipes in older homes around North Shore are no fun, and something you should look to avoid. If your property pipes were laid a long time ago it’s worth getting them checked as at some point you will experience issues with worn water and sewage pipes that succumb to pressure or historical damage or movement.
Because your pipes are buried it can often be hard to pinpoint the issue, or even identify that you have an issue. If you notice changes to your water flow or water usage it’s important to get a second opinion from an experienced and qualified plumber to assess where the damage is and how severe. This will give us the ability to get help quickly and recommend the best solution and give you a rundown of the costs involved.
As well as tree roots and decay, broken pipes can be caused by incorrect pipe installation or pressure from refurbishments and home extensions. Look for reduced pressure, slow draining and puddles when it hasn’t been raining.
With so many different property types in the North Shore region, we make sure our training is always up to date to handle plumbing issues new and old, from the simple and straightforward to downright messy and disgusting. Our trucks are ready and loaded with equipment to handle any blocked drain issue and cover a wide range of pipe materials, depths, locations and property layouts.
Our North Shore plumbers are happy to answer your questions, walk you through the steps and provide an upfront quote so you know where you stand and what to expect well before you commit to working with us.

Stacey - Rockdale
Corey and his team were professional, patient and clear on all of the options available to solve our storm drain problems.
They were incredibly thorough and kept us informed of all works to be completed. An added bonus that they entertained and engaged with my dog! Will only use them in the future.
Corey solved & fixed a plumbing problem that had already been classified as a major job.
Highly recommended !

Corey was great. Very polite, very knowledgeable and talked us through the process. He was prompt and communication about booking was great. Definitely recommend.
Prompt and friendly! Thanks guys, great work
Would recommend these guys every time! On time, friendly, but best of all on budget and a great job. (and they loved our annoying dog who must of dropped her ball at their feet 50 times!)
Corey from Sherlock Drains was recommended to me from a friend. Best service from a plumber I have ever had. He was on time, great communication. Solved the problem fast. Thanks Corey
Laurent - Rozelle
I was very happy with Corey and his work. His approach to fixing the problem was well considered and he thoroughly explained what he was attempting to do. I would recommend Corey and Sherlock Drains.
Corey is prompt, professional and great at his job. His communication is brilliant and he really is a great guy.
Highly recommend Corey, very prompt with coming out to our property and fixing what we needed done. Very happy with Sherlock Drains service - Thanx Corey
Corey did a great Job and was very easy to deal with! Communication was excellent from start to finish.We would definitely use him again and highly recommended him to others.
Ben - Riverwood
Corey answered my query within minutes, came on time, was tidy with impeccable customer service and fixed the issue quickly and professionally. He even spotted a few other issues and sorted them out too without charging extra. Would recommend to anyone.
Outstanding customer service, friendly & approachable, enquiries were answered promptly, very clear & to the point about what work needed to be done. Quality of workmanship was excellent, very neat installation with high attention to detail.
Cleaned up after themselves, went above & beyond to make good the work site after the install was complete. Overall a fantastic experience all the way through from initial site visit to job completion. Very happy customer - would highly recommend Sherlock Drains & definitely keep them in mind for any future plumbing work. Thanks!
If you are looking for an excellent, knowledgeable, honest and reliable plumber that gives 120% to his profession look no further than Corey from Sherlock Drains. Corey was able to diagnose the cause of water hammer in my pipes in minutes over the phone and was spot on. (I had another plumber come to site and told me I needed to cut holes in walls to secure pipes and replace all taps to fix the problem quoting over $800!)
Corey did a pressure test of the mains changed the washes and services the taps for less than half the first quote I received!!! When asked, he kindly checked out other plumbing issues in the house, made his recommendations and quoted these jobs but was in no way pushy to get the work done. He was more than happy to work within by budget on that day. Corey explained every step of the work to be done and why. He worked quickly and cleaned up after. Best of all Corey and his nephew were both super friendly guys and a pleasure to meet. I cannot recommend Sherlock Drains more highly.
Richard - Petersham
Corey was able to fix the simple problem other plumbers could not. The cost was very reasonable and they were well prepared to work clean and also leave the site clean. If you need a plumber who will give you good feedback on your service seeking request, is accurate in their assessment before and during the job then look no further. Sometimes a larger plumbing business isn't the right solution.
Cory is not 5 star... he is 50,000 stars...the complete package!!!!! Totally brilliant!
Hannah - Surry Hills
Cory from Sherlock Drains was very friendly and practical. He helped me save a lot of money by chasing Sydney Water to get them to fix the part of the issue that was their responsibility - even though it meant forgoing some of his own fees. Excellent customer service. I would hire them again.
Corey and his team are reliable, trustworthy, and friendly. There work is efficient and well-priced - and they seem passionate about what they do! I can't recommend them highly enough.
Woke up this morning to a river of sewer flowing through our backyard. I called Sherlock Drains and they attended within the hour as promised and solved the problem. They explained what they were doing in great detail and provided a permanent solution. Sherlock Drains are true blocked drain specialists. To top it all off they cleaned up and disinfected the area!
Corey is outstanding. Absolutely reliable for turning up when he says he will, and completing the work within the stated time. Prepared to travel all over Sydney (we are actually in the Blue Mountains!). Offers a service most other plumbers can't: highly specialised equipment that delivers a great outcome of lining, rather than digging up and replacing, complex twists and turns.
Corey is a STAR plumber! He is professional and friendly! He shows up on time and he quickly gets to the bottom of the problem from his experience. He also provided a number of suggestions for me to choose so I felt that he really looks after his clients! Also highly recommend him because of his transparency from the very start, no nasty surprises in terms of the pricing!
John - Annandale
Not the cheapest but they couldn't have been more knowledgeable, professional and polished. After a series of disappointments with tradespeople, I'm really pleased I paid a bit extra and gave them the job.
Corey came out to our house promptly within the hour and quickly got to work unblocking our pipes which had tree roots blocking them. Corey also consulted us on our toilet system and told us a money saving way of fixing it. Would not hesitate to use Corey at Sherlock Drains again.
Corey from Sherlock Drains is a breath of fresh air when it comes to plumbing! Not only is he experienced and provides quality work but his passion about what his doing is awesome! We had a terrible ongoing drain issue and tried a couple of different companies that did not fix the problem. We finally got onto Corey and the issue was fixed and the process explained clearly! Could not be happier! Thanks Corey.
Quick response, fair pricing, knowledgeable, and friendly service. Thank you Corey!
Sherlock Drains were easy to contact and communicate with, turned up on time, and Corey completed the job in a friendly and professional manner.
After having a number of poor experiences with tradies who just don’t turn up or tell you what is going on, it was refreshing to deal with these guys. Would absolutely recommend Sherlock Drains.
Had 2 other plumbers come to unblock my drain unsuccessfully. Sherlock Drains came out on short notice and unblocked it in half the time as previous plumbers. A bit more expensive but well worth the money, highly recommend
Corey is a specialist in Drains. He is efficient, friendly, knows what he is doing and gets job done on time. He has helped us to locate the storm water pipeline within the easement and provided us the report of pipeline specifications per builder's requirement. The job is a complex and involves various talks with neighbours around.
Corey is a good communicator, he gives clear instructions and helps get information from the neighbours. Boy, Corey turns a painful process into such a smooth solution! I would recommend Corey to families and friends.
Richard - Marboura
Corey from Sherlock Drains called me immediately after I posted the job, explained in plain English what my options were, and was on site, as promised within the hour. Honest and professional, Corey got the job done, keeping me informed along the way. He even did some extra work, just to make sure the job was done properly.
I have no hesitation in recommending Sherlock Drains for your plumbing needs - if you were like me and completely bewildered as to who to choose for your plumbing job, then your search is over.
Had a blocked toilet. Had another plumber come and did water jetting plus paid for camera , which sort of fixed the problem (front toilet cleared). Quoted to come back to fix the boundary trap vent that blew up from the blockage.
Corey offered to come and give 2nd opinion for free and finished the blockage part and fixed the damaged pipes for less than 1/2 of the other guy. It's being a costly day for me but still glad found Corey who completed the job and a honest, efficient plumber. Much better in contrast, having 2 plumbers attending on the same day for the same blocked drain. Also cleaned up everything even the pile of **** where the pipe blew up. Very professional.
Corey and his team are reliable, especially when fitting in their work around other tradesmen. Their work is top quality and I relied on Corey’s advice and knowledge, which saved me effort and time. Renovation can be stressful but Corey’s personable character made the project a pleasure.
The staff at Sherlock Drains were super helpful with our leaking pipe they attended in a timely manner and we’re extremely professional. They explained in detail what work was required and carried out the work efficiently. I would highly recommend this company and it’s Staff and wouldn’t call anyone else in the future.
Recently completed a job for me, outstanding service and price would highly recommend the team at Sherlock Drains.
Exceptional Service ! Explained the issue and professionally addressed instead of the “quick fix” .. Cleaned up after themselves also.. Highly recommend for all your plumbing needs - thanks Corey.
First class and Professional operation.
Corey has done numerous large separate jobs for me now with his high quality top grade equipment, his passion and expertise makes short work of very tough jobs.
He has been on time, fair, reasonable, very respectful and by far the best man for the job I’ve come across in the industry.
He has even organised Sydney Water for me to finish of a big job that has helped me big time. Strongly recommend Sherlock Drains to anyone in need of pipe work they’re easily the best!
Corey and Callum came out for a “little” job that turned into a major event. They went to work, weaving their magic and fixed everything! Everything! I use and have used Sherlock Drains for all my plumbing needs for a long period of time. Corey always responds to my messages, texts and phone calls in a calm and decisive manner. I couldn’t be more grateful guys. Thank you so much.
Michael - Ashbury
Great service by Corey, went the extra mile trying to find a solution for our stormwater drain. Very informative giving us multiple options for us to choose from going forward, Highly recommended.
Ben - Tempe
Very communicative outfit that was interested in working through with me the exact type of job I wanted and gave me the right price for the work I wanted.
Need a plumber? Don’t look any further! Corey was timely, informative, very friendly, honest and respectful. His professionalism and thoroughness along with all the plumbing “does and don’ts” (what to look out for and how to care for our household plumbing) were invaluable.
Thank you Corey for allowing me to finally be at peace that I’ve found our permanent plumber!! Till next time...
Jimmy - Clement
Corey is a nice and fully equipped plumber. He carried out the high pressure jet blasting with cctv inspection and solved the blockage of the drainage straight away. I am happy to see the result. Will hire him again. Fully recommended.
