Blocked Drain Types

The Jetter is a high water pressure machine for blocked drainage pipes.  There are two types of blockages.  One is what we call a local drain blockage, which is a drain blockage near to the toilet S bend and or the sink or basin S bend. The second is a blocked in your main or larger external drain pipe.  Different equipment is needed for these two different options. Local blockages can be sorted out with  drain hand tools where as the larger drains need the petrol powered Jetter drain machine or the Electric Eel drain machine.  Naturally the Drain Jetter costs more then the hand tools.  It is always more expensive for the main drain pipe blockage to be unblocked as larger more expensive equipment is needed to remove blockages in the  larger drainage system.

Blocked Drain Time Frame

The average drain clearing jobs take 45 minutes- 1.5 hours.
Drainage Machine hire is the Drain High Pressure Water Jetter, or Drain Camera and Location Device if required.

Drain Inspection Equipment

Drain Camera Inspection is available and is advisable if you have your drain unblocked regularly or you are concerned that your drainage system is getting worse. Clearing a blocked drain pipe is like a hair cut.  The roots will if not removed grow back into the drain system.  This is something that cannot be avoided without repairing the sewer or storm water drain pipe.  At this stage you have the option of viewing the condition of the drainage pipes and assess whether or not it is best to have that section of drainage removed or repaired so the drain blockage does not return and cost you further inconvenience and cost on a regular bases.

Drain Inspection Benefits

We are able to locate the problem within the drain pipe within a metre of the break or damaged section of the pipe that is now causing the roots to invade the drainage system.  This saves thousands of dollars because you do not have to dig up the whole yard, driveway to locate the problem.  Therefore saving time, money and disruption to your routine.  So a drain camera inspection is a good investment.

Drain Camera Location Time Frame

To locate the drain damage with the camera after the drainage system has been cleared takes about 45min- 1hour 15min on average.  You can not see the damaged drain section if the drain is still blocked.  In the event that the drain can not be unblocked it is possible though to put the camera down a blocked drain to pick up only by means of the location signal coming from the camera lens itself where the camera has stopped in the full blocked drain.  This of course is no guarantee that the camera has stopped at the crack/broken drain pipe as nothing is visible due to the dirty water.  This may be a possible option on where to start digging.

Blocked Drain Worst Case

What happens when my drain gets blocked or overflows?

This is generally the process.

First we come out and attempt to clear the blocked pipe. 90% of blockages are cleared in the first 60 mins. If not we can keep trying to unblocked the drain for a little longer if we feel it will clear.

If for some reason it will not unblock, we can attempt entering the drain pipe from the opposite end. If it still will not clear we can locate where it is blocked and give you a quote to dig down to the blocked drain and repair and replace the damaged drain section. Digging up a drain can cost a little more then you would expect. Minimum dig up costs could be $2000. Average though is closer to $4000- $8000. Repairing blocked drains have even cost up to $40,000 – $50,000.

All plumbing business are the same in relations to the cost involved in this kind of work. Beware of cheap services that have some interesting hidden cost. Cheap dig up cost always results in cheap patches not drain sections being replaced with heavy duty PVC sewer grade drainage piping.

Something to keep in mind.
