Blocked drains service – How it works

Locate the blocked drain

It used to be frustrating and time-consuming locating blocked underground drains and often involved a lot of guesswork and unnecessary digging. Fortunately, we’re now able to use electronic locators to give us the precise whereabouts of the fault’s location. 

In addition, our plumbers can use a locator to tell us the depth and direction of the pipework below ground. This means we can carry out a full drain inspection, implement a solution more effectively, and replace or repair damaged or broken pipes with the minimum of inconvenience, mess, and cost to you.

Identify the blocked drain problem - CCTV camera survey

Having determined the exact underground location of the faulty pipe, we’re able to use CCTV camera technology to visually inspect the inside. 

How does it work? A waterproof camera is connected to a cable and fed into a stormwater or sewer pipe so that we can inspect its internal condition. We can then see the cause of the blockage and whether the pipe is broken or cracked, without the need to dig it up.

Our blocked drain Brisbane experts can actually show you what’s occurring in live footage as the cable is pushed down, a bit like watching a video. We can also take photos and video footage during the process if required. It’s always a good idea for a home or business owner to be on site when we’re carrying out a CCTV camera, as that way they can see the cause of the blockage for themselves.

A CCTV camera also comes in handy when used in conjunction with high-pressure jet rodding, when cleaning or clearing a blockage, as we’re able to check visually that all debris has been removed. In most cases we use a CCTV camera,  especially when tree roots are evident, to confirm that the drain is clear. At Brisbane Plumbing and Drainage we don’t leave anything to chance.

Clear the blocked drain - High pressure Jet Rodding

Our truck mounted jet rodders are equipped with a variety of nozzles which allow our technicians to carry out a wide range of sewer and stormwater pipe maintenance functions. A flexible hose is guided down the pipe where the blockage is located and high pressure water is then pumped through the hose and out of the specialist nozzle which is attached. 

This powerful blast of water cuts through debris and blockages (including tree roots) cleaning the pipe as it goes along. It’s extremely effective, and because it doesn’t work by friction, there’s less chance of it damaging the pipe. Since the walls of the pipe are scrubbed clean as the jet rodder removes the blockage your pipes are assured of a long-lasting clean.

The Jet Rodder is an invaluable tool which can

  • Unblock drains
  • Clear and clean stormwater drains
  • Clear and clean sewer drains
  • Clean all sizes of conduit pipe
  • Be used for commercial and industrial plumbing

Prevention is always better than cure - we recommend rountine drain cleaning for all our plumbing customers.
