Jetter The Gap

With the Hydro Jet Rodder on board, Plumbaround can clear even the toughest blocked drains.  Whilst the electric eel is a great machine to clear lines, the Jet Rodder blasts all sorts of debris free from blocked sewer and stormwater lines.

Hydro Jetting cleans drains once cleared of a blockage with a high pressure water jet at up to 35,000kpa. The jet rodder achieves this by feeding a self propelled hose with a specifically designed nozzle up the drain.

There are many places an electric eel cannot go where a jetter hose travels with ease and does the job more effectively and efficiently. We have a variety of nozzles for use and with the ability to pull through toilet pans and tight PVC gully traps.

Hydro-jetting will clear storm water lines blocked by silt, sludge and sediment build up.  The hydro-jet method penetrates the dirt and flushes the drain in one action, leaving the drain clean and free flowing.

Call the Plumbaround team today on 3038-1038 to enquire about the Hydro Jet Rodder.

Blocked Drain in Albany Creek

Blocked Drain in Albany Creek

A blocked drain can be from a few different reasons, such as a squashed pipe or tree roots.  Tree roots are a major cause of drain blockages and must be rectified as the problem will only worsen with time.  If a tree root penetrates a pipe, it is highly likely that it will still grow in the pipe.  The tree root system grows to where food and water are located.  If you have a crack in a pipe, it is very likely a tree root will enters the drainage line.  A tree root can still penetrate and break a pipe even if there is no crack to begin with.

Warwick had fun recently clearing a gurgling shower drain line.  Tree roots can penetrate any drain if given the chance and the results are terrible.  This shower drain was completely full of tree roots and the line has now been repaired to ensure this doesn’t continue to happen.  The owner simply heard a constant gurgling in from the shower drain but over time it became worse.  Little did they know it was actually this bad!  The repair was only a small section of pipework but some instances see an entire drainage line being repaired.

Blocked Drain in Everton Park

What’s our favourite job here @ Plumbaround Pty Ltd?? A drain clearance!!  The amount of drain clearances we attend to is usually 1-2 per day.  Our young apprentice Matt is learning the ropes to clear a blocked drain with one of our Drain Cleaner Machines.

Drain ClearanceThis drain in Everton Park used 8 rods to clear, most likely right on the council connection to the property.  We pulled back large tree roots from a root penetration located at around 6 rods down the drain.  We use a specific head on the end of the drain cleaner which is able to cut the roots blocking the pipework.  Some of these roots are pulled back with the drain cleaner and others push through the line.

It’s amazing what we find hiding and blocking drains.  Things that should not be flushed but are flushed!!  The most common reason is broken pipework where a root penetration happen has happened.  Where break has occurred, if not repaired in a timely manner, the drain is highly likely to block again.  Over time the blockages worsen as does the break in the pipework.

Clearing a drain is not for the feint hearted and is usually a not so nice job but hey, someone has to do it!  Our equipment is maintained to ensure we can unblock the majority of drains and ensure the safety of our staff as well.

We are available day and night to clear blocked drains, and only a phone call away!  Please don’t hesitate to contact us.  Phone or email, we will respond straight away!!
