Locating The Blockage
Blocked drains can occur for a wide range of reasons and the only way to fix them is to find out exactly what the cause is. If it is a regular problem we will unblock the drain and use a miniature CCTV camera to investigate exactly what the problem is.
Occasionally access to parts of the drainage system can be confused due to concreting over of access manholes; using a sonar transmitter attached to the CCTV probe we can quickly find our way around or locate hidden access points from nearby manholes. Its all part of the quotation!
Clearing the blocked drains
Blocked drains are most often caused by simple waste; your home, commercial kitchens, restaurants and hotels all suffer from a blocked drain from time to time. Any cooking activity generates greases, oils and fats that can accumulate and block your drain.
New builds, houses with new extensions or drains located around building sites and yards can often accumulate building waste from concrete up to entire bricks; any physical obstruction like this can be quickly and cleanly removed using our high pressure water jet system which can strip away hardened concrete and even de-scale the drainage pipe.
Tree root blockages and repairs
A more problematic drain blockage is caused by plant and tree tap roots which can crack drain pipes and then grow into them. We cut away and clear the obstruction using a remote cutting tool and CCTV, followed up by repairs to the original crack and any other damage caused; we always try to do this accessing just the drain pipe and without digging anything up. It quicker and far more cost effective for you.
Most of our customers only call us out when a blocked drain problem has already happened, but higher risk properties like hotels and restaurants should consider periodic high pressure water jetting to keep their drainage system clean, de-scaled, odour free and providing an efficient service. We can provide CCTV drains surveys at any time to check on potential problems and make quick work of water jet cleaning.
