Blocked drains are a regular problem for many properties here in Canberra’s older suburb’s such as Aranda, Reid, Weetangera etc..
But do not stress, Canberra Water, Gas & Air have all the experience & equipment needed for every situation of blocked drain. Weather it be a standard tree root blockage, your storm water drain is full of silt/dirt, or your kitchen drain is blocked with kitchen fats and grease.
We will first assess what type of blockage you have then select the most suitable type of drain cleaning machine for the job.
The electric eel is the age old, tried, and tested method of removing tree roots from your drains. It uses thick metal cables that spiral there way down your drain with different cutting heads we can attach to the end of the cables. This method is a fantastic cost-effective way at removing your standard tree root blockages that occur annually or every so often.
The hydrojetter is a more modern form of drain cleaning machine. We send a high-pressure hose that pulls itself down the drain using different types of nozzles depending on the drain/situation. It uses high pressure water up to 5000 psi to either cut through tree roots, dislodge foreign objects that have become stuck in the drain, flush out dirt/silt sitting in the drain, cut through kitchen fat/grease and flush it away. We can even polish the inside of the drain using this machine. The hydrojetter is the ultimate drain cleaning machine for most (but definitely not all) situations. If you have a blocked storm water drain, 9 times out of 10 we would recommend using the hydrojetter as storm water drains are often full of dirt/silt. Because the hydrojetter is constantly pumping water down the drain it will not only clear the blockage but then it will flush away all the dirt so the blockage doesn’t happen again, where as the eel would just punch a hole through the dirt, leaving most of it still sitting in the bottom of the drain.
Canberra Water, Gas & Air’s hydrojetter machine is also a portable unit. Making it ideal for those tight/sticky situations. It is quite small and on wheels so we can wheel it around wherever needed. We can even bring it into the lift and up to the top floor of your apartment block to clear out drains or downpipes up on the roof.
