Blocked Drain Technology
Technology is constantly progressing when it comes to blocked drains. Through the various stages of investigation, detection, diagnosis and repair, there is always new and improved methods designed to enhance the results in these areas.
CCTV Drain Camera’s
All of our technicians’ trucks are equipped with CCTV Drain Camera’s that enable them to position and manoeuvre a camera within the drain. This technology allows them to see exactly what the problem is via a video monitor at ground level.
We use highly advanced locating equipment that allows our technicians to pinpoint exactly where drains and other services lie, by tracking an electrical current that has been either attached to the service or inserted into the drain. This enables us to accurately establish the exact location of the service we’re tracking as well as the depth. It’s pretty clever.
High Pressure Water Jetting Equipment
In addition to the drain camera’s and pipe locators, our vehicles are also fitted with ‘High Pressure Water Jetters’, which removes everything from silt and residue, right up to solid matter, tree roots and foreign objects.
We also offer a preventative program, that schedules us to attend your property periodically, so that we can address any recurring problems before they become a reality.
That way, we can be sure that your drains will always be clean, so you should never experience any surcharging.
Here are some typical signs that your drains may be blocked
- Your floor drains are bubbling over
