Our drain unblocking techniques

All of our engineers have a range of mechanical equipment and tools, as well as years of experience, to carry out drain unblocking of any type of blockage.

1. High-pressure drain jetting equipment
These machines, that are installed inside our drainage vans, are capable of breaking up any type of material that’s causing a blockage. The power of this equipment limits its’ use to secondary drainage pipework, rather than the primary pipework inside a property, where it could cause damage or flooding.

2. Electro-mechanical ‘sani-snakes’
The electric motors in these machines allow our engineers to push a rotating, flexible cable into pipework. Different attachments allow them to push through any type of blockage, including scale and fat deposits. They are portable and are ideal for unblocking internal, primary drainage pipework.

3. Drain rods
The more traditional rods are still a very effective way of unblocking external and secondary pipework. Sections of strong but flexible rod are attached together and pushed by hand into the drain. A range of different attachments can be fitted to the end depending on the blockage that needs to be cleared.

4. CCTV drain surveys
If the location or cause of a blocked drain proves difficult to identify CCTV camera equipment can be used. As well as clearly identifying the blockage this equipment will record any defects in the drainage network that could be causing the blockage. For example, places where tree roots have broken through a fractured drainage pipe.
