How will my plumber unblock my drain?
Clearing a blocked drain can be a relatively simple job when you have the right tools and expertise.
In most cases, as a first step, we use a CCTV camera to identify the location of the obstruction. Our expert drainage plumbers will then use a jet blaster to shoot water at high pressure down the drains or sewer. This high-powered blast clears most blockages but if it doesn’t, we use our drain inspection camera to investigate further.
If we can see that tree roots are causing the drain blockage, we use a cutting head on the jet blaster to remove the tree roots. A drain inspection camera is the best, and fastest, way to know what is causing the remaining blockage.
The following problems normally occurred when blocked drains are not fixed…
A common problem associated with blocked drains is cracked pipes, this can be caused by a variety of reasons – commonly pressure from the environment and from the inner part of the drain .
Collapsed drain pipes
When a drain or sewer pipe has been installed incorrectly or is very old and using dated materials it is common for the pipe to collapse entirely. This is a fairly serious issue that should be dealt with immediately.
Trees are very effective at finding water in the ground, you may wonder how roots can infiltrate man made drain pipes but they can and they do. The truth is that root infestation can be a serious issue, drain pipes can become completely infested with roots to the point there is simply no room for water to drain. This is usually caused by a crack in the drain pipe. Blockage from root infestation also increases the chances of other debris accumulating in the pipe. It is very easy to diagnose this problem with a drain camera inspection.
Bellied or settled pipes
One problem that can occur is where pipes settle in the ground, this creates what is sometimes referred to as a “belly”. The pipe will accumulate water in this area since gravity does not have a chance to let it drain. This problem is usually due to the ground not being compacted correctly during the installation of the pipe; also the pipe may have been installed on a very rainy day causing ground erosion.
Because of the above problem(s) plumbing camera inspection is right for you.
Unfortunately many property owners believe that nothing serious can happen to their property’s drain and sewage system. Even when there’s a block in a sink or bathrooms basically are too slow while depleting waste water, numerous property owners go out to buy some ‘drain-o’. However, this only addresses small blockages.
A CCTV drain camera inspection allows you to uncover any serious issues, such as breaks in the pipe, blockages that are not cleared by chemicals, or originate inside a drain pipe. A regular sewer or drain camera inspection is an important part of an on-going plumbing maintenance schedule for any property.
