The tree roots are one of the most common causes of blocked drains causing blockages which are not necessarily easy to detect or clear. Some properties have tree ingress in various locations. In the video you will see how Darius, one of our top dogs, has visited the site and has examined the rooted drain. With the help of a CCTV for inspection along with a high-pressure water jetter, he has cleared the roots inside the drain.

We all know that roots start to grow in the area where their moisture, hence they start to grow inside the drains and creating excessive damage to the property. Darius has many years of experience and makes clearing the roots look easy.

Inspecting the blocked drains

Darius found that there was another issue to consider. Due to the bad fitting, the pipe changes from the urban wear (clay pipes) to the PVC and it is not aligned properly. After further inspection and water jetting, he found more locations where the tree roots have penetrated inside the drains. This is a huge benefit of CCTV inspections. If the job was only half done properly and the drains appeared back to normal, you’d be calling a plumber back out in no time.

Water jetting the blocked drains

After inspecting the drain properly and knowing the causes, Darius fires up our locally made custom high powered water jetter inside the drain. The high pressure of the water cleans out the drain and unblocks the roots.
