From small to large blockage, our engineers have all the equipment required to clear any blockage. We have the latest technology to ensure your blockage does not happen time and time again. We CCTV check every blockage to 100% sure we have resolved every possible problem with the pipe work and to find the cause of the blockage.
There are so many different types of blockage and we have every technique to clear the problems from all different sizes of pipe work.
Every one of our vehicles is fitted with a High Pressure Water Jetter and mechanical cleaners, large and small to clear every blockage.
We aim to attend every customer within the hour from your call, reducing the stress caused by the blockage. Once the engineer has assessed the problem, specialist training acquired by our team means they will find the fastest cure to resolve the problem.
Below are the different ways in which we may clear your blockage and a short explanation into why we use these different techniques.
HIGH PRESSURE WATER JETTING
Used to clear most blockages. The pressure of the water is feed through a hose and out through micro holes in a reverse action, creating a fan of water at an enormous pressure. This penetrates the blockage and blast any debris into smaller pieces and the intensity of the pressure clears the blockage.
This machine can remove limescale, tree roots and foreign objects lodged in the pipe work with ease.
LARGE MECHANICAL CLEANING
Used to cut lime scale from the lining of the pipe work and break it down into manageable chunks to be cleared away. A thick steel cable is feed into the pipe work which is then made to rotate in a clockwise direction by a foot pedal attached to the base of the machine. A cutter fitted to the end of the cable then begins grinding any debris attached to the inner skin of the pipe, eventually boring the pipe back to its full capacity. This ensures full flow to the pipe work.
This machine also cuts roots away and clears grease and fat from pipe work.
The flexibility in the cable used means it can access most hard to reach blockages and can bend round corners of toilets without removing them.
SMALL MECHANICAL CLEANERS
Used in the same way as a large mechanical cleaner but only on primary pipe work such as kitchen waste and small bore pipes. The smaller is so flexible it can access nearly every blockage in smaller pipe work easily. The cable can be used to break down lime scale, grease and fat built up in the pipe work so clearing the blockage can be made a simple task.
Used to find the cause of every blockage. We offer a full DVD recording and report with every investigation. In the past we have found children’s toys, tree roots, collapsed drain and even breakages in the pipe work.
A high resolution, fibre optic cable is sent down the drain sends real time images back to a screen so we can identify the real cause of the blockage whist on site.
Once we have gathered all our information, a resolution to the problem can be offered to our customers.
RELINING OR EXCAVATION
Can be a resolution to the drainage problem you are experiencing. Relining is the latest way of fixing underground pipe work without excavating the entire pipe. So if the problem in your drainage is minimal, we can hydro scrubb the pipe work removing any debris and then insert a proxy resin sleeve into the pipe work. We then inflate another internal sleeve using high pressure water jetting and leave to cure for 4-6 hours. We then remove the internal sleeve, leaving the resin smooth and continuous throughout the pipe work. Once we have trimmed the edges and CCTV surveyed the pipe work, your drain will work as good as it did when it was first installed.
If we need to excavate the pipe work due to entire collapse or breakage, Plumb, Drain and Maintain ensure that we keep your property tidy at all times and cause as little intrusion as possible. As with any type of dig up, there will be some mess but our promise is to minimise this as much as possible.
