Understanding Blocked Drains

Drains can get blocked for many reasons, foreign objects such sanitary items and flushable wipes entering the drain, ground movement disturbing pipework, a build up of grease and fat, however the most common cause for a blocked drain is tree roots. Clearing the drain doesn't always rectify the cause of the blockage. 

D and P Plumbing have specialised equipment to clear your blocked drain, we have available either a high pressured water jetter or electric eel. Once the drain is clear we can inspect your drain using a Rigid drain camera, if needed we also have a locator that can pin point the exact location of the damage, this makes it easier for us and for you to make repairs.

Stage 3

Some drains can be relined if there is not significant damage to the pipework (Image 2) once the damage is passed a certain point (image 3) the only option to prevent continuous blockages and ongoing issues is to dig up and repair the damaged sections.
