We Use the Following Technologies to Clear Your Blocked Drain


CCTV Camera

Putting a CCTV camera into the drain means we can easily locate the source of the blockage in your drain. We’re then able to easily plan what steps to take next to clear the drain. 

Pipe Locating Equipment

A pipe locator is used alongside the CCTV camera to locate the point of blockage and provide possible solutions to the problem. 

RootX Treatment

Also known as a ‘tree root inhibitor’, RootX is a sodium foaming root control which is an effective and safe way to kill off the roots which are blocking your drains. It foams on contact with water to kill roots, prevent regrowth, and restore pipe flow. 

Water Jetter & Hot Water Jetting Equipment

Sends a high-pressure jet of water into the stormwater/sewer line. Its heads can be swapped out for different uses (to break down roots or rinse debris, grease, and sludge away). 

Electric Eel

We feed a metal cable into the stormwater line/sewer. We rotate this cable until it cuts the root growth and releases the debris that was blocking the line. 

Pipe Re-Lining

The ultimate sewer, drain, and stormwater pipe rehabilitation. A new pipe is placed inside the old one’s cavity in a process called Cured-In-Place-Pipe Inversion relining. 

We push a liner through the existing pipe cavity that has been filled with a proprietary epoxy lining. As the lining winds through the pipe, it unrolls to the size and shape of the inside of the cavity and is able to adopt a new pipe within the old one. The epoxy is set in place to form a hard shell and leave behind a new pipe that is even stronger. 


When Is It Time to Call a Professional?

If clearing out any debris, regularly hosing your drains and using hot water, baking soda and vinegar solution to clear your drains don’t work, it’s time to call a professional! 

We have the equipment that can easily clear your pipes and can get the job done in a timely and efficient manner for a fixed, affordable price.
