Sydney Blocked Drain Experts

If you notice a bad odour in your laundry, bathroom or toilet, or see that your sink or toilet is taking longer to drain then it is most likely that you have a sewer blockage. In some instances, you can hear gurgling coming from the pipes as the water and sewerage flow is obstructed by the blockage. Drain blockages can quickly become an emergency plumbing situation, as a build-up of gunk may completely clog up your drain pipes at any time and without notice. When it comes to sewer lines, an emergency plumbing situation is unhealthy at best, and not one that you and your family want to experience! Basically, if your blockage is not cleared in a timely manner, then you will experience a sewer fill-in where the sewer line becomes fully blocked and the fowl sewage water and accompanying sludge comes back into your property via your toilet, shower, sink or floor waste!

How do we unblock your drain and/or sewerage line?

When resolving your blocked stormwater drain, or blocked sewer line we generally take a 5 step approach:

  1. Camera Inspection with a CCTV drain camera: We use the latest technology in CCTV camera to detect the location of the blocked sewer or blocked drain, and ensure that we conduct a thorough inspection of your full drainage system checking for potential weaknesses or damage to your drainage system that may have been caused by tree roots or shifting soil.
  2. Locate the drain blockage: Our specialist drain plumbers will pinpoint the exact location of using the CCTV camera inspection system that is capable of transmitting a signal from within your pipes, deep in the earth to a receiver held above. This enables us to identify issues anywhere along your sewer line and stormwater drain system. Further, we can even provide you with a copy of the video footage that we take of your pipes for the future prognosis of plumbing issues.
  3. Water jetting: Once we are satisfied with our pipe damage diagnosis and have located the blockage, we use a jet blaster or hydro-jet cleaner to run high-pressure water jet flow of up to 5000 PSI down the pipe. This clears away soil, debris, plants and tree roots in the drain clearing out the drainage system.
  4. Electric Eels: When the high-pressure water jet doesn’t quite blow you out of the water, we bring in the electric-eel. This drain clearing tool comprises of flexible cables and rotating cutting tools, and is driven by a powerful motor. It clears blockages in sewer and stormwater pipes by cutting through tree roots, grease, leaves and soil build-up. It also will be required to cut through the damaged pipe sections, where we opt to use pipe relining to mend your drainage system.
  5. Dig-up or Pipe Relining: Where damage has been caused to the pipes, a dig up or pipe relining will be required. All our trucks are equipped and ready for Sydney pipe relining.
