Blocked drains and Sewers Brisbane

Blocked drains can occur in any size waste and stormwater pipes. They can become blocked due to many different circumstance. Majority of the time they are caused by damaged pipes, ingress of tree roots or an object that has become lodged in the pipe.

Leaving blocked drains unchecked and repaired can be extremely dangerous to the health of those near it and also become a very costly exercise to repair serves and property.

In conjuction with our blocked drain clearing service we can offer drain inspections using specialised CCTV equipment to find the cause to your blockage. For more information on our drain inspections please click here.

How Drain Cleaning Works

  • Step one is to unblock the drain. Hydrojetting uses high pressure water to cut tree roots and dislodge piping blockages. Hydrojetting also flushes out sand, silt and even concrete debris.
  • Step two is to identify the cause of the blockage. Once the drain is unblocked, an inspection by camera is possible. We use the latest digital camera equipment to view the cause of the blockage whether it be a cracked pipe or tree roots. We can easily record the entire inspection in high definition to a USB flash drive for your convenience. If a fault with the pipe is found during the inspection we can use a radio frequency locator to identify the exact location of the fault including its depth.
  • If tree roots are found to be re-growing aggressively after being cleared from the drain, the pipes can be treated with herbicidal foam that kills the offending roots while leaving the tree or shrub unharmed. The foam guarantees the tree roots will not regrow within 12 months.
  • Sometimes a blockage is severe or the pipe has been damaged so badly that a repair is the only option. Using the locator we can pinpoint the area that requires repair and dig up and rectify the issue with minimal mess. Drain repairs should not be put off as they often lead to backflow issues which can damage your home.
