  • Foul smelling odours emitting from your drains
  • Gurgling noises in your pipes
  • Slow to no drainage in your sinks, showers, basins or tubs
  • The toilet water level seems too high or too low – or overflows completely
  • A drop in water pressure
  • Pooling water around the outside of your property

Blocked stormwater drains, blocked downpipes or over-filled gutters may also present themselves during periods of heavy storms when the water simply has nowhere to go.

Electric Drain Cleaning

Electric drain machines or electric eels are carried in each of our Jims Plumbing vans. These are more commonly used machines for clearing a toilet blockage or blocked sewer drains. It involves a steel flexible rod with a cutter on the end run by an electric motor that cuts & removes tree roots or any other obstacle in the drain. One of the  downfalls with these machines is they do not have the length of rods to reach blockages that exceed 75 feet away. This is where hydro-jets are ideal as they have double the reach of electric machines. Electric eels are far better at cutting out larger tree roots as they have the strength of a motor pushing a cable with a sharp cutter on it, which often easily cuts and removes large roots.

Hydro-Jet Drain Cleaning

Hydro-jets, or jetters as they are also known as, are extremely effective at clearing both sewer and stormwater drains. They are also great for clearing grease blockages in drains as well as cutting out and removing tree roots. The hydro-jets we use are trailer mounted units and run at a pressure of 5000 psi, which is strong enough to cut off a finger. Hydro-jet pumps high pressure water out of the end of a small nozzle attached to a hose, and is placed into the drain and self-propels itself through the pipe blasting through any obstacles, such as stubborn tree roots, that are in its way.

An advantage of the hydro-jet is it is able to reach blockages that are further along the pipes than what a conventional electric eel drain machine can reach. This often saves on costly excavation methods, as the drain is cleared, and an inspection point is not having to be excavated, for the electric machine to gain access to a closer point to the blockage.

We use jetters regularly on kitchen sinks, especially when they are full of grease, as the hydro-jet easily cuts through the grease and fats to allow the pipe to flow freely again. The hydro-jet is especially efficient for cleaning sinks and drains in commercial properties where thick build up’s often occur.

Commonly, the hydro-jet cleans stubborn drain blockages far better than the electric eel drain machines and is often used for more serious blockages.

Sewer Drain Camera

We have a number of drain cameras, or CCTV cameras as they are known in the industry, which can be placed down your drain pipe to see what is causing your blocked drains.

The drain camera will clearly identify any damages that may have occurred to the pipe from the blockage, or determine why the drain has blocked up and allow your attending plumber to find the exact location of the blockage to decide on the most effective clearing method .

We find that tree roots seem to be the most common cause of blocked drains as they penetrate into the pipes and soon grow to a large mass. Collapsed pipes, misaligned pipes and foreign objects in the drain are all other problems we identify when we use the CCTV camera. In some cases, drain problems can be ongoing and require further assistance, this is where one of our CCTV drain cameras can help! Our sewer drain cameras can pin point where there may be a misaligned pipe, broken pipe, root mass or other foreign obstacle in the drain, as shown in the video.

Stormwater Drain

Blocked Stormwater Drains

It is important that you request the hydro-jet, or jetter, if you have a blocked stormwater drains. This is the best drain cleaner to be used in this situation as it uses high pressure water and will remove any stubborn blockage along with any dirt, leaves or silt from the stormwater pipes. Conventional electric eel drain machines are not suitable for this application. As our hydro-jets are trailer mounted they are not carried to every job, so please advise upon your booking if you have a blocked stormwater drain so we can save you time and money by bringing the hydro-jet to your location.

No Obligation Quote for the Repair or Replacement of Drain Sections*

This is a very common type of drain blockage. Stormwater drains commonly block up due to tree roots, dirt & silt lying in the pipes. Stormwater drains are the pipes that connect the pipes from the roof & the sumps in the garden, which then discharge to the water table (kerb) in the street. If any damage to your stormwater pipes has occurred from the blockage, your attending Jim’s Plumber will be able to supply you with a no obligation quote for the repair or replacement of drain sections.
