We clear blocked drains using traditional rodding techniques as well as using high-pressure jet washers. For more serious issues, we have drainage consultants who can perform a CCTV drain survey. The results of a survey help us to find a resolution for blockages and, if needed, show us where systems require a new drain lining or replacement pipes.

Clearing blocked drains by Rodding

By choosing First Choice Drainage Solutions, customers and clients have a very experienced team at their disposal. Our staff will access different sections of the drainage system via manholes and dislodge the blockage with rods.

In most cases, plumbers retrieve contaminants from blocked drains at the point of access or, if this is impossible, force them further into the system and collect from another manhole.

Rodding is an effective solution for blocked drains but when this method fails to dislodge the cause, we use high-pressure jet washers instead.

Clearing blocked drains by Jetting

Jetting sewer lines is a guaranteed and effective method of dislodging accumulated waste, clumps of debris, and tree roots from drain pipes and sewer lines. The process eliminates the need to dig up the ground to expose pipes that are clogging your plumbing system. Power jet drain cleaning is the best way to clear pipelines and clean the interior wall of pipes. Only properly trained and experienced plumbers should be hired to perform high pressure drain jetting for homes and businesses.

Jet washing also has the added benefit of removing scale from the drainage walls. As experts in high pressure drain cleaning, we take care to do the job correctly, to prevent intensifying any plumbing problems. Knowing how much water pressure is required to clear out a drain is important. We also take into consideration condition of your piping system and the internal diameter of the clogged pipes flush deposits from your drains in a safe and appropriate manner.

If our plumbers can’t clear the causes behind blocked drains, we can dispatch one of our drainage consultants to administer a CCTV drain survey. We use the most advanced industry equipment to inspect the overall condition of the drainage system and the pipework. Should the drainage system need repairs, we can quote for a replacement drain lining at competitive rates.
