Blocked Drain Assessment

We will assess your blocked drain based on the symptoms you are experiencing and determine the location of the sewer line or stormwater drain system on your property. In the case of a sewer blockage, locate where your sewer line connects to the Sydney Water Sewer Main Line, and for a stormwater blockage locate the stormwater drains discharge point, estimate the location of the blockage, and locate a suitable access point to clear the blocked drain from.

Water Jetting Blocked Drains

After we have assessed the blocked drain and suitable access into your sewer line or stormwater drain system underground has been achieved, we will set up our water jetting equipment and clear the blocked drain of all solid backed-up waste material using high-pressure water jet penetrating and flushing drain cleaning nozzles.

CCTV Drain Camera Inspection

After your blocked sewer line or stormwater drain has been thoroughly 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.

Removing Tree Root Intrusions

If our CCTV drain camera inspection shows your sewer line or stormwater drain is affected by tree root intrusions, we will use high-pressure water jet root cutting nozzles to cut, remove and flush away any root growth from inside the drain and carry out a second camera inspection with you to confirm the drain is clear of tree roots.

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

Drain & Fault Location

If your sewer or stormwater blockage was caused by broken, damaged or defective drainage pipes or tree root intrusions, we can electronically locate drains above ground and mark the exact position and depth of the problem area hidden below ground and supply recorded video or pictures of the drain camera inspection if requested.

CCTV Drain Camera 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.

Pipe, Fault & Drain Locating

Electronic pipe, fault and drain locators work in conjunction with CCTV drain cameras by receiving a radio signal transmitted from the CCTV 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.

Unblocking Drains Is Our Business!

A Word from the Business Owner - Mark

I understand that many homeowners would just prefer their blocked drains cleared properly by a licensed Sydney Plumber and continue to maintain them with scheduled drain servicing rather than overpaying for a substandard drain cleaning service and then in many cases being upsold an unnecessary and most likely overpriced drainage repair. I have hundreds of regular clients who trust me to continue to maintain their drains for that reason. If you have been advised by another Plumber that your drain requires repairing or renewing, I can provide a second opinion by giving an unbiased assessment of the condition of your drains and honest professional advice regarding what options you have. In many cases I have been able to save homeowners in Sydney thousands of dollars in unnecessary drainage work.
