Blocked Drains Process

How we fix blocked drains

When you have a blocked drain, the blockage itself is actually a symptom of something larger. This lager problem could be tree roots growing inside your drain, solid matter becoming stuck (eg. toilet paper); or even a squashed or damaged pipe from ground movement etc.

Most plumbers when dealing with a blocked drain will unblock the blockage to allow flow back from the home but won't do anything to preventing the problem from happening again. It is in these times that our blocked drain experts can help.

Fix the Problem, Not just the Symptom

The correct way to fix blocked drains

In most cases, using home remedies such as baking soda and vinegar or even draino just won't cut it. Using a plumbers eel or water jetter, isn't going to fix the underlying problem either and there is a good chance you'll have another blocked drain in the near future as a result. This is where Reline Solutions comes in.

Our blocked drains process will not only fix your drainage issue, it will also prevent future problems and blockages from happening again. Our process has been tested time and time again and continues to prove itself as the most effective way to prevent blocked drains.

Our blocked drains process is broken up into 3 simple stages, utilising state of the art drainage equiptment we can ensure that your drains will remain clean and clear for years to come.

Stage 1: Drain Inspection

Inspect Blocked Drain with Drain Camera

The first thing we need to do is locate the blockage. We achieve this by feeding our drain camera down into your pipe. The camera gives us a live video which allows us to be able to maneuver the camera as needed to get around objects and get to the source.

This stage gives our plumber helpful information such as: where the blockage is located within the pipe, the size of the blockage and also what's the causing the blockage.

Stage 2: Clearing the Blocked Drain

Clearing a Blocked Drain

In most cases a blocked drain is able to be cleared by using just a water jetter. The purpose built, high flow water jetter is able to dislodge the majority of blockages with ease and zero damage done to the integrity of the drain.

If for whatever reason the blocked drain is unable to be cleared with a water jetter we can use our robotic cutters. This tool has a high-speed cutting head that can cut through pretty much anything, including large tree roots, steel or even concrete.

Stage 3: Drain Relining

After the problem has been removed it is time to prevent it from happening again. Drain or Pipe Relining allows you to reline the inside of your drain so that you have a smooth inner surface and a hard exterior surface stopping pesky treeroots from being able to penetrate through again.

The relining sock is inserted into your drain and then expanded to fill all holes, nooks or crannies that are in your existing pipe. Once expanded a special UV light is then inserted into the drain to help cure the new lining membrane. Once cured the relined section of pipe will be twice as strong as it was and will stop any blockages from happening in the near future.
