Our Blocked Drain Clearing Process

1. ASSESS THE BLOCKED DRAIN

We will carry out an assessment of the blocked drain based on the symptoms you are experiencing, determine the location of the sewer pipe system on your property, estimate the location of the blockage and locate a suitable access point to clear the blocked drain from. Once the drain is clear we can then carry out a CCTV drain camera inspection.

2. CLEAR THE BLOCKED DRAIN

After we have assessed the blocked drain and suitable access into the underground sewer pipe system has been achieved the blocked drain will be cleared of all backed-up waste material using high pressure penetrating and flushing  drain cleaning nozzles. A clear drain will then enable us to carry out a CCTV drain camera inspection to determine the cause of the sewer blockage and confirm a clear drain.

3. INSPECT THE CLEARED DRAIN

After the blocked sewer line has been cleared of all backed-up waste material, we will carry out a CCTV drain camera inspection to confirm and show you a clear drain. If the blockage was only a waste blockage and the drain is structurally sound with no tree root intrusions our work is finished.

Clearing a waste blockage is a 3-step process.

4. TREE ROOT AFFECTED DRAIN

If the sewer line is affected by tree root intrusions, we will use high pressure root cutting  nozzles  to remove any root growth from the pipework and carry out a second camera inspection with you to confirm the drain is clear. Many Plumbers either do not carry out this part properly or do not carry out this part at all!

Clearing a tree root blockage is a 4-step process.

LOCATION & VIDEO RECORDING

Optional: If the sewer blockage was caused by damaged or defective sewer pipes or tree root intrusions, we can electronically locate the exact position and depth of the problem area and supply recorded video of the drain camera inspection if requested. For simple waste blockages or homeowners servicing their drains regularly to remove tree root regrowth this step is normally not required.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Is Responsible For A Blocked Sewer?

Sydney Water Corporation owns, maintains and is responsible for its own sewer pipe wastewater network (Sewer Main Line). Sydney Water provides homeowners with a point of connection (junction) to Sydney Waters Sewer Main Line for each property. Where your private sewer pipes connect to the Sydney Water Sewer Main Line can be located anywhere on or off your property - In your front yard, back yard, side of house, in your neighbours' property, parkland, reserve, bushland, under the footpath or road or any other public area. The homeowner owns all of their private wastewater pipes and therefore is responsible for any maintenance, drain clearing, repairs or renewals needed to maintain a proper functioning private wastewater system including all internal branch drains under the home and all external main drains that run all the way to and including the point of connection with the Sydney Water Sewer Main Line even if that point of connection is beyond the property owner's land boundaries. If a blockage is anywhere within a private sewer line it is the homeowner's responsibility to contact a Licenced Plumber to clear the blockage in their sewer pipes. If you are not sure if the blockage is in your private sewer pipes or Sydney Waters wastewater network, you can call Sydney Water on 13 20 90 and they will ask you some simple questions to help you identify the location of the blockage. You can follow the link below to the Sydney Water website for more information on wastewater blockages.

CCTV Drain Inspection

CCTV drain cameras are a must have tool for Plumbers to inspect the inside of drainage pipes without the need to excavate. They are the fastest way to diagnose and find any problems within a sewer or stormwater drainage system such as damaged or defective pipework or tree root intrusions.

sewer drain pipe location sydney nsw

Pipe, Fault & Drain Locating

Electronic pipe and fault locators work in conjunction with CCTV drain cameras by receiving a radio signal transmitted from the drain camera head positioned inside the underground drainpipe. The receiver above ground translates the signal into accurate and very useful depth, direction, and location information on a digital display above ground.
