Clearing Blocked Drains
Blocked drains are a big hassle. They cause inconvenience, health issues, and even property damage. Blocked drains occur within either your sewer or stormwater drain.
Your blocked drain is a sewer issue if it affects fixtures inside your house and includes toilets, sinks, basins, baths or showers.
Your blocked drain is a stormwater issue if it is most obvious during heavy rain and commonly involves blocked downpipes, pits, overflowing grates and is usually caused by tree roots growing into your drain.
Here's how we do it, in 3 easy steps:
your problem & your needs
Confirmation & Observation
We always have a detailed conversation with you about your drain problems, so we have a clear understanding before we send our plumber out to you. This saves wasted time.
Once on-site, your Drain Man plumber will assess your situation and decide on the best way to solve your problem.
We are not "on-the-clock"...until this phase is complete
2. In-Drain Camera Vision & Clear Blockage
Inspection & Clearing
We use an in-drain camera to locate the real cause of the blockage, which may NOT be what you think it is.
Then we use a high-pressure Water Jetter and/or Drain Clearing Machine to unblock the drain, and take further Camera Vision as required.
You are provided with this Before and After footage so you can see for yourself the work we have done to clear your drain and to identify any other issues.
3. Long-term solution to drain blockages
If your drain blockage was simply caused by a short-term problem, we will clear it and that's the end of our service.
If however your drain has serious ongoing problems that are likely to cause repeated future blockages (such as tree-root intrusions, partial or complete collapse of the drain, cracks, breaks or joint dislocation, we will offer you a long-term solution designed to prevent future drain blockages.
