Drains are the invisible menace - good when they are working and a nightmare when they are not.
You don't think about them until they stop working, but when they do you need action and fast.
We do the whole range of drainage work. From blocked sinks and toilets to new drainage installations.
And when it comes to blocked drains we can unblock pretty much anything. From toilets, sinks, showers, baths and gully traps to manholes and stormwater.
If we can't unblock your drain by plunging it using elbow grease, then our Drainage Machine and Drain Jetter are perfect for the job.
If you are experiencing blockages on a regular basis it is often causes by tree roots infiltrating your drains. We have equipment to cut out tree roots from your drains.
And our Drain Camera and Locator can pinpoint the problem, making it easier and cheaper to repair. This is what drains with tree roots growing in them looks like, making it difficult for your waste to pass through.
Tips on keeping your drains healthy:
Disposable baby/toilet/cleaning wipes - these are the latest and greatest in keeping parts of your body clean and happy. But they are the nightmare for your drains and we recommend not flushing them down your toilet.
While they can be biodegradable, if you have a problem with tree roots or a low flush toilet they can get clumped together into a solid mass which can stop anything from getting past. Since their introduction, we are seeing more and more occurrences of these being extracted from drains using our drainage machine.
Low Flush Toilets – these have come about with water rates and the need to be more aware of water consumption. However due to less water being used to flush down the sewer pipe, waste, particularly the disposable wipes get stuck.
Draino – as plumbers, we don't recommend pouring harsh chemical products down your drains as they can melt pipework and rubber fittings etc
