This video takes you through the steps of how we inspect and find blockages in drains, and how we clear them at Essendon Plumbing Services. If you can’t watch the video right now, read on below for a rundown of how Steph got to the bottom of this clients’ drain blockage.
“Hi, I'm Steph from Essendon Plumbing. I'm at a clients’ house today with a a suspected blocked storm water drain. It's flooding into their backyard. So, what I'm going to do today is run the pressure jet up there to try and clear it. Once I believe it's cleared, I'm also going to CCTV it and try and find if I can see any issues.
I believe I've cleared the blockage so im going to get the CCTV camera and put it up the storm water. Now, with the pressure jet still where the blockage was, I'm going to put the CCTV camera in there and locate exactly what position that blockage was. I've also got a counter on the screen, which tells me how far In I am in the storm water.
I found the pressure jet head, and this is saying that it is approximately four and a half meters from the starting position, which is right here. So, I'm now going to go locating in the backyard with my NaviTrack Locator.
I'm here now with my RIDGID NaviTrack Locator and I'm going to locate the point of the storm water that my camera is in.
I've located the depth to be at .6 of a meter. There's no obstructions above ground that I can see that was causing a blockage, so I believe it was just my first assessment of debris and leaves in the storm water drain.
If you suspect you have a blocked drain, call us at Essendon Plumbing Services on 03 9335 4755. Experience the difference of a plumbing service that goes above and beyond.”
