How we identify and repair clogged drains

Generally we will start by inserting a specialised drain camera into the affected pipe. The drain camera will identify the nature of the pipe blockage and pinpoint its location.

Once we have determined the cause and location of the blockage we will decide the best course of action to unclog the drain and make any necessary repairs. We have all of the latest drain clearing tools and technology at our disposal to ensure a cost effective and permanent solution.

According to the situation, we may use any of the following methods to unblock your drain pipes:

  • Jet water blasting.
  • Specialised root cutting tools such as drain augers.
  • No-dig pipe relining.
  • Excavation and replacement of pipes.
