Our Blocked Drain Clearing Process
The following drain clearing process is considered industry best practice.
If your Plumber is not following a correct drain clearing process, then you are probably wasting your money!
1. ASSESS THE BLOCKED DRAIN
We will carry out a detailed assessment based on the symptoms you are experiencing to determine the cause of the drain blockage, its location within the drainage system and locate a suitable cleanout access.
2. CLEAR THE BLOCKED DRAIN
Once suitable access into the drainage system has been achieved the blocked sewer or stormwater drain will be cleared using high pressure water jet penetrating and flushing drain clearing equipment.
3. INSPECT THE DRAIN
After the blocked drain has been cleared a CCTV camera inspection will be carried out to confirm and show you a clear drain. If the drain is structurally sound with no tree root intrusions our work is finished. Clearing non tree root blockages is a 3-step process.
4. TREE ROOT AFFECTED DRAIN
If the sewer or stormwater drain is affected by tree root intrusions we will use high pressure hydraulic root cutting nozzles to remove any root growth from the pipework and carry out a second camera inspection to confirm the drain is clear. Clearing tree root blockages is a 4-step process.
Plumbers who up-sell drainage repairs either do not carry out this step correctly or do not carry out this step at all!
5. LOCATE THE AFFECTED DRAIN
Optional: In the event that the blocked sewer or stormwater drain was caused by damaged or defective pipework or tree root intrusions we can electronically locate the exact position and depth of the problem area and also provide video documentation if requested.
For our existing customers who service their drains regularly to remove tree root regrowth this step is normally not required.

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 locate any problems within a drainage system such as damaged or defective pipework or tree root intrusions.
Electronic Pipe & Fault 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 depth, direction and location information on a digital display.
Electric Eel Drain Clearing
Although high pressure water jet drain clearing equipment has superseded its mechanical counterparts, electric eel drain clearing processes can still be used to attempt to remove or dislodge metal, plastic or wooden foreign objects that find their way into the drainage system.
