After we have assessed the blocked drain and suitable access into your sewer pipe system has been achieved, we will set up our water jetting equipment and clear the sewer line of all solid waste material using high-pressure water jet penetrating and flushing drain cleaning nozzles. A clear drain will enable us to carry out a CCTV drain camera inspection to determine the cause of the sewer blockage and confirm a clear drain.

After your blocked sewer line has been cleared of all backed-up waste material, we will then 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.

If our CCTV drain camera inspection shows your sewer line is affected by tree root intrusions, we will use high-pressure water jet root cutting nozzles to cut and remove 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.

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.

Although high pressure water jet drain clearing equipment has superseded its mechanical counterparts, electric eel drain clearing processes can still be used to try to remove or dislodge metal, plastic, wooden or other foreign objects that find their way into the underground drainage system.
