How Does Drainage Excavation Work?
Drainage excavation is the last resort, which is why there are a few steps involved before we excavate. On arrival, the attending expert will use the CCTV drain camera to see exactly what’s causing the issue. From here, depending on what is found, they will use either the hydro-jetter drain cleaning machine or the electric eel drain cleaning machine in an attempt to clear the blockage.
If your plumber is unable to clear the blocked drain, they will advise that a section of the drain will need to be replaced. If it’s a large area to be excavated, we will utilise a 4 tonne excavator to reach the affected pipe. However, we do have access to machines down to 1.5 tonnes, for any situation. Every one our experts are trained and experienced in carrying out excavations and replacements of blocked drains.
Why Choose Drainage Excavation?
Tree root infestations or compacting and shifting earth can all lead to a cracked, broken or complete collapse of a section of your outdoor drains. You’re attending professional will recommend a section of the blocked drain be replaced if the blockage is unable to be cleared. This may be the case if a sludge build-up is too solid to shift, or if the drain frequently gets blocked from poor quality or incorrect installation.
We always opt for long term solutions over quick fixes. Whilst we always try to find non-intrusive resolutions first, leaving your drains blocked can lead to health implications or bigger repair jobs in the future.
