Electric Eel / Sewer Snake
With blocked sewer lines, our plumbers can use a tool called an electric eel for stubborn blockages in order to clear the pipes. Also referred to as a plumber’s snake, it is a slender, flexible auger used to dislodge clogs in plumbing. The plumber’s snake is often reserved for difficult clogs that cannot be loosened with a plunger. It is also sometimes called a toilet jack.
High Pressure Cleaning Hose
These are a broadly used tool that utilises water volume as well as pressure to force through any unwanted blockages in your sewer services. The hose can get to some places the eel cant and works in a cleaner fashion, especially when attached to the water boiler, which is particularly effective on grease blockages on commercial properties.
CCTV Plumbing Camera
The use of a CCTV camera in plumbing is usually to definitively locate the problem and ensure the appropriate solution first time to avoid hassle and provide a long-term solution. It isn’t required on every job as an experienced plumber can generally locate and diagnose the problem without needing it. It is however the most direct way to reach a long-term solution, especially if it is a reoccurring problem. It can save money to use the camera on problems that present like tree roots and collapsed pipes to get in there and resolve the problem quickly, and ensure if we do need to excavate, that we make only the minimum impact to your yard.
Our plumbers will be able to see exactly what is going on in the pipelines, using a small camera and a monitor to see what the camera sees. If the pipes are only blocked and no breaks are found in the lines, then a high-pressure machine is the best option to use to clean the blockage. Our technicians know exactly how much pressure to use when cleaning and how to preserve the existing plumbing with each piece of equipment they use.
Sometimes the blocked sewer pipes will need an extra boost of industrial drain cleaning. Industrial drain cleaner is used as a last result as it is much stronger than household cleaners available at the supermarket to clean the pipes. Our expert plumbers know what is needed to resurrect your sewer services and will address each blockage with the most appropriate and least damaging solutions.
