For blocked drains, we use different methods to unblock them. One of the methods to unblock drains is using an industrial water blaster this can cut through roots and blast through all manner of objects put into drains and is the most successful. But occasionally a machine that rotates a cable can unblock some drains. Our team of experienced drain layers and CCTV technicians use cutting edge technology to have a better view of your drainage. A drain camera can be inserted one the drain is clear to identify the location of problems. It transmits a signal and we can sense its depth and location so can mark the ground for later repairs.

Causes of Blocked Drains
Blocked drains are caused usually by the drains breaking then roots growing in. Occasionally it can be something put down the drain such as kids toys or debris such as drink cans or bottles. Putting wet wipes is almost certain to block drains. If you have any kind of sewage pump anything other that what should naturally go down the drain will stop a pump which will need removing and unclogging.
Problems detected by CCTV camera inspection
- Pipe cracks due to soil pressure
- Broken drains
- Drain leaks
- Foreign object blocking the drain
- Tree roots growing inside the drain and blocking the drainage
- And more.
When a problem is viewed on the camera we locate that position above ground and mark that location. A price is determined to excavate and replace that section of drain. The most common repair is a 2m section. Occasionally the joints have failed on a longer section and several meters require replacement.
