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

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.

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). 


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. 

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.
