Drain Jetting Services

High-Power Drain Jetting Services from Drainflow

Drains take a good deal of punishment, from domestic grease and fat, through to commercial debris and tree-roots. Drain clearance used to involve a good deal of digging to find out exactly where and what the problem was. Now the Drainflow team use CCTV drain surveys to locate the blockage, and a range of drain jetting services to clear it.


5 Symptoms of a Blocked Drain

There are a number of warning signs that you drain needs to be cleared and cleaned. If you encounter any of these, you should contact a professional drain clearance team. They’ll deal with the source of the problem and leave your drains clean and healthy, whereas DIY solutions offer a quick fix but often the symptoms recur:

  1. Water rising in your toilet bowl, and an ineffectual flush.
  2. Bad smells from the drains on your premises.
  3. Slow draining sinks and showers.
  4. Plugholes that ‘tick’ or gurgle as they drain.
  5. Flooding from gullies.

What is Drain Jetting?

Once we’ve pinpointed the blockage, we use high pressure drain jetting services to clean and unblock drains. Strong and flexible drain jetting hoses are able to reach down into the drain and propel water jets at pressures in excess of 3000psi. The huge force of the water will loose encrusted cement, dislodge stubborn blockages, and flush out sludge, or silt.

2 Case Studies Involving Drain Jetting

The Drainflow team provide drain jetting services to households, commercial clients and the construction industry:

Cutting Screed From Drains in Lincolnshire

We were called to a retirement village development in Lincolnshire. It’s often the case on construction sites that cement or screed ends up being washed down the drains. If it dries onto the pipes it can cause a restricted flow, and further blockages. We used drain jetting hoses with a special attachment which allowed us to cut through encrusted screed and blast it out of the drains.

Tree Root Removal in Bedfordshire

Tree roots love the inside of drains; they provide the ideal moist environment for nurturing underground growth. This kind of ingress can be disastrous for drains; not only do the roots block the pipes, they also cause damage to the drain walls. This was the problem on an industrial estate in South Bedfordshire. We used a specialist nozzle on our drain jetting hoses to cut through the roots and removed them. In this instance there was no damage to the pipes.
