Drain Unblocking & CCTV Surveying Auckland, NZ

When you need your drain cleared, trust the number one drain unblocking and CCTV surveying service in New Zealand.

One of the challenges of keeping domestic sewers and drains in good working condition is the fact that they’re hidden away. That indicates it’s difficult to locate potential problems until they have developed into serious problems.

Thanks to innovative CCTV technology, that no longer needs to be the case. Our team of professional plumbers offers drain unclogging and CCTV surveying services, using the best and latest camera equipment to check the inside of your drains and ensure they are in top working condition.

Our specialists check the condition of the drains from their mobile units and remotely detect potential problems, like stubborn blockages, collapsed sections, big fissures, and hairline cracks, as well displaced joints and rodent infestations that permit pests to enter your drainage system.

There’s no longer any need to dig up the ground or enter the pipes to do such checks as an assessment can be done using remote-controlled camera units. With our services, you get peace of mind with minimum interruption.

After the survey is done, we assess the images and suggest solutions to any issues we discover. Call us today to get a free estimate.

Drain Unblocking auckland



Our family home is on the North Shore but the bridge is no barrier for Progress Plumbing.  We have found their service to be fast and reliable. They have a ‘can do’ attitude and professional communication with clients. From niggly little plumbing issues, like an element on our gas hob not firing to a blocked insinkerator, through to larger problems like a leaky roof, they quickly assess the problem and diligently get stuck in.  Unlike other tradespeople we have hired over the years, Progress Plumbing turns up on time or will give us more than an hour’s notice if delayed on a job …

Wainhouse, Chatswood, Auckland

Aaron’s work on the major renovation and additions to our home was faultless. His quote was prompt and detailed, and suggestions and improvements on the initial brief were welcomed and followed. As always with major projects, staying ‘in sync’ with a host of other tradesmen is paramount. Aaron and his team delivered on-time to a standard that gives me no pause in recommending Progress Plumbing for any job requiring top shelf plumbing, unblocking drainage and gas fitting.

Aaron from Progress Plumbing has done work for myself and my husband at home and at both of our companies; Bakerfield Medical Centre and Mangere Cosmopolitan Club. Aaron has proved to be very efficient, cost effective and very quick to respond when needed. I would recommend him for Plumbing, unblocking drainage, roofing and gas fitting repairs and installations. He has even completed work on our Caravan, once again, to a very high standard.


Mike and Audrey Cassidy

Our bathroom and kitchen taps decided to give up at the same time – two weeks before our house went on the market and only a few days before going overseas for a week. Despite calling Aaron out of the blue late in the afternoon, he was prompt, positive and a complete professional. Both taps were fixed quickly, allowing me to get on with my busy schedule. I can’t recommend Progress Plumbing highly enough. This business is now on our list of ‘golden tradespeople’ who we will always contact and recommend to friends.


Jody and Paul

They listen to what we need, make the right assessment and deliver top notch service and products every time!! Have recommended Progress Plumbing already to all our friends. Wouldn’t use any other company!!

Sofitel Viaduct Hotel engaged Progress Plumbing as a service provider for the following reasons – They are extremely helpful and always willing to assist 24/7. They have good knowledge of the plumbing reticulation to the building and can advise on problem solving.
Their rates are reasonable and within the hotel maintenance monthly expenses. Their staff are always friendly and efficient. I can highly recommend Progress Plumbing as a service provider for all your plumbing requirements.

We have enjoyed our experience with Progress Plumbing, both as a client and a customer, and are constantly blown away by their services. Aaron has built a great team of tradesmen who are well presented, are on time to jobs, and work in a professional manner. We look forward to continuing this relationship and would recommend them for all your plumbing and gasfitting needs


Jackson Builders

One of the most important things in building is having sub-trades that are reliable and deliver a high standard of work. It makes life a lot easier for my team and clients alike. Progress plumbing ticks all of these boxes and are always happy to be on site. Thank you for all your time and effort.

For two years, Station 205 has used Progress Plumbing as part of our ongoing renovations. Our Penrose site is a collection of 12 vintage 1960s warehouses, which we are renovating to bring them in line with modern facilities. This work is not straightforward, as tradesmen are required to work around existing structures and integrate with existing infrastructure.
We have found Aaron’s team to be both professional and proficient. Our builder knows that when he calls on Progress Plumbing, they will deliver his requirements in a timely manner. Often a team of four plumbers will arrive and work swiftly through the job.
We have used Progress Plumbing to install new bathrooms in existing buildings and to enhance the overall site drainage. We also have a house on site that we fully renovated; Progress Plumbing turned a laundry into an ensuite, relocated the kitchen and reconnected the sewer services. I have personally used Progress Plumbing a number of times in my home. They always provide a reliable estimate before the work begins. Their billing is prompt, detailed and accurate. I have no hesitation in recommending Progress Plumbing for all your plumbing requirements.
