  2. Inspection Of The Inspection Riser
    The drainage system does not function smoothly if the inspection riser gets damaged or excessive blockage in the pipes. With the help of the CCTV camera, the expert will examine the riser. The blockage can be due to the accumulation of grease, fallen leaves, bottles, and other plastic items. All these items get accumulated for several months, which eventually block the passage of wastewater drainage. The expert first clears the blockage by removing the obstructive particles from the path.
  3. Removing The Twisted Riser
    As the blockage is removed from the channel, the twisted riser is taken out and examined properly. The plumber will bring a new riser along with him to replace the old one. Replacing the old, twisted, and broken shaft riser is very important as it will obstruct the particles further and will not provide a hassle-free movement of the wastewater.
  4. Installation Of The New Riser
    Yes, after removing the old riser, the plumber replaces it with the new one. Install it in the position where the old riser was located. After the new riser is being installed, the inspection cover is checked once more, and then the plumber closes the lid of the inspection cover that is located on the surface of the ground.

Besides blocked drain repairs and CCTV inspection, we also offer general plumbing, gas leak detection and hot water system installation, maintenance and repairs. If you want to hire a trusted plumber in Perth, consult the team from Plumdog Plumbing.
