LARGE-SCALE OR COMMERCIAL UNBLOCKS

We are experts at identifying problems and can provide timely CCTV inspections to detect the cause of the blockage. If your drain is blocked from roots or debris we have the equipment and expertise to clear it without the need for excavation, using specialised high pressure cleaning equipment.

If the pipe is cracked or broken due to infestation, we can patch or repair to ensure the problem doesn’t reoccur.

Frequently Asked Drain Unblocking Questions

 

HOW DO YOU UNBLOCK A DRAIN YOURSELF? / CAN I UNBLOCK MY OWN DRAIN?

We urge you to give a plunger or a liquid drain unblocking solution a try before giving us a call. If this works... you're welcome!  If it doesn't we'll come and take a look and solve your problem for you.

 

WHAT IS THE BEST THING TO UNBLOCK A DRAIN?

Each blockage has its own own type of methodology for clearing the drain or pipe.  Simple clogging can be fixed with plungers, liquid drain cleaning solutions, or if it's badly blocked, has foreign objects or a ground sediment build up then you may need to call us to flush the line with a high pressure water jetting tool.  If these methods including the flushing of the line do not work then you will need to inspect the line to see what is causing the blockage.  There could be foreign objects, ground sediment, a tree root that has found its way into your pipe or a fat build up that has essentially made the internal pipe diameter smaller. Tools to solve these types of problems which are services we offer are:

Removal of Food, General Soft Debris, Toilet Paper etc. (Plunger / Liquid Drain Cleaning Solution could work but Water Jetting if blockage is built up)

Removal of Foreign Objects, Food, Toilet Paper - Line Flushing (Water Jetting)

Removal of Ground Sediment - Line Flushing (Water Jetting)

Tree Root Removal - High Pressure Water Heads, Mechanical Tree Root Cutter or Chain Flail

Calcified Fat Removal - Chain Flail

 

If you do attempt to plunge or use liquid drain cleaner yourself, please follow all of the safety instructions associated to the method and beware to use a septic tank friendly solution if you are not connected to mains and have a septic tank.

 

DO PLUMBERS DEAL WITH BLOCKED DRAINS?

They do!  Usually internally but some have the capability to deal with external drain blockages within your private drainage lines.  It is in the instance of private lines connecting to public lines that plumbers tend to hand the baton over to companies like ours who tend to have larger and more powerful equipment that caters for small and larger pipes.

 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO UNBLOCK A SEWAGE DRAIN?

These types of queries are hard to give a single answer for and are usually on a case by case basis dependent on multiple factors.  If your sewage drain is blocked, give us a call and we can talk you through the best possible option.  We are here to help!
