What We Do

We use a range of equipment and techniques to assess and remove blockages. CCTV drain cameras can be fed down drains to determine the cause and location of the blockage. We can then use sewer machines or high-pressure jet cleaners to clear the blockage without the need for excavating and manually clearing blockages. This ensures the quickest, easiest and most cost effective way of clearing drain blockages.

Common Causes of Blockages

Some common causes of drain blockages include tree roots and soft blockages. Tree roots can infiltrate pipes and create a mass of roots that impedes water flow. Roots can also crack and dislodge pipes, leading to drainage problems. Soft blockages occur when matter like toilet paper blocks up a pipe. This usually happens when too much toilet paper has been used or foreign objects have been flushed.

Blockages can also be caused by a build-up of hair, grease or oil, silt and debris clogging up a drainage system.

Slow draining pipes are usually a sign that you have a blockage starting to build up. In this case, you should act fast before the drain blocks up and starts to overflow.
