An Effective Method of Clearing External Blockages

Breaking blockages into smaller pieces for removal

High pressure water jetting is an effective method of clearing external blockages, and all our vans at Clear Rod are fully equipped with industrial van mounted jetting units that meet the current standards.

High pressure drain jetting is conducted within our fully qualified teams by placing a high-pressure hose into the blocked drainage system. Water is then pumped down through the hose from our fitted van jetting machine, creating a steady stream of water that is powerful enough to break down any congestion in your drainage system. This pressurised water creates a force that can break blockages into smaller pieces. The high pressure water stream can cut through most solid materials to clean various surfaces. This leaves the blocked drain clean and helps you maintain it for future use and avoids the need for potential costly excavations or piper replacements.

High pressure water jetting is the long lasting and environmentally friendly answer to a lot of plumbing problems including blocked garden drains and blocked drain pipes.

Our professional team can provide you with this cost effective pipe unclogging solution which not only breaks up any blockages but also thoroughly cleans the pipe walls so you don’t have to worry about any potential serious problems. We can help remove any difficult materials such as garden and toilet waste from both internal and external drains.

Some of the signs that you need our blocked drain services and a high pressure water jetting is if you have an unpleasant smell coming from your sink or drains, there are lumps or physical blockages in your pipes or the water inside your drains is especially high or overflowing.

Root Intrusion

Deal with tree roots quickly and comprehensively

Root intrusion in pipework can cause many problems, but this can be effectively removed with root cutting equipment. In some cases, you may not be able to prevent this issue until it is too late, sewer camera inspections are realistically the only way to stop root intrusion before it occurs.

Cement and cast-iron pipes can deteriorate much quicker than others, making them extremely vulnerable to root intrusion. If a root does enter this type of piping, it is often a good idea just to replace the whole thing with a more durable option. Our expert team have the knowledge to deal with tree roots quickly and comprehensively. We can offer hydro jetting services to completely remove the roots and restore any damaged pipelines, without causing any unnecessary headaches.

De-scaling of the drain is carried out with heavy jetting and scale cutting machinery to restore the pipework to its original bore, ensuring free flow. Overlooking small blockages, stains and corrosion may lead to major drain repairs costing you large amounts of money and inconvenience.

At Clear Rod we have specialist teams in drainpipe descaling. We use high pressure water jetting techniques and advanced hydro-jetting equipment, capable of cutting away hard scale deposits from your drains. By using these industry standard techniques and equipment we can remove scale build up without the need to dig around your drainage system and pipes.
