    How we Unblock Drains

    1: Finding the blockage

    Our experienced plumbers will use the latest CCTV camera inspection tools to visually search through your drains and assess their condition.

    We’ll find what’s causing the blockage.

    2: Clearing the blockage

    A simple blockage can be cleared using a good pressure wash from inside the pipe. Sometimes, however, an external cause triggers the blockage (such as tree roots) and this may require further work to ensure future blockages don’t happen.

    We’ll advise you on the options available and highlight our recommended, cost-effective yet permanent solution.

    Common Causes of Blocked Drains

    There’s many reasons a drain can become blocked. It’s important that the underlying cause of the blockage be found so future episodes don’t happen.

    The following are the main causes of drain blockages we come by:

    Roots in a blocked drain

    Tree Roots

    Tree roots naturally grow towards water, and what better place than a drain! Over time, tree roots can break through even tough concrete pipes to access water. The problem is, once in, they grow like no tomorrow, ultimately blocking the drain.

    Tree roots often require accessing the pipeline, removing all roots from nearby and replacing the compromised drains.

    Don't flush wet wipes

    Bathroom Products

    Foreign objects that shouldn’t be flushed down the toilet often are! A common culprit being wet wipes and hygiene products. These items love getting snagged on the smallest nook, inviting others to the party as they come along.

    These blockages are often pumped out or pressure washed away and learning what should and shouldn’t be flushed stops future episodes.

    Oil & Grease can block pipes

    Oil & Grease

    Oil & grease congeals when it cools, forming big, cloggy bergs that easily blocks drains. These build ups are often experienced in kitchen drain blockages or in larger facilities such as apartments or commercial facilities.

    Generally, these kinds of blockages are broken up with a high pressure wash. Future episodes can be avoided by disposing of oil and grease with your rubbish.

    Hair blocking a drain

    Hair

    Excess hair can easily begin clumping up into a big blockage, particularly in showers and bathrooms. Instead of forcing hair caught by the shower grate down the drain, consider placing it in the bin.

    Our drain cleaning equipment easily churns through obstructive hair balls.
