Mechanical Drain Cleaning

We have been using mechanical Electric Eel drain clearing equipment to clear blocked drains and sewer lines in Sydney since 1975 and although this type of drain clearing equipment is still used today by some Sydney Plumbers to clear blocked drains and sewer lines, we have been using high-pressure water jetting equipment to unblock drains and remove tree root blockages much faster and more thoroughly for over 30 years.

Blocked Drains Sydney

Drains can block up for many different reasons and although the use of high-pressure water jetting equipment is now the preferred method to clear blocked drains and sewer lines Electric Eels can on rare occasions be useful when drainage design, access, flooding issues and other drainage abnormalities restrict the use of water jetting equipment. For that reason, we always keep two RIDGID K-1500 mechanical drain clearing machines on standby just in case we need them.
