Drains & Sewers

All plumbing systems will eventually clog or get blocked with regular use.

Whilst there are a wide variety of home drain cleaners available on the market today, many of them are toxic and only offer a temporary fix to a long-term problem.

It's important to do it right. This is where we come in.

Sign of a Problem

You may find that certain drains and appliances tend to become clogged more frequently than others. Your toilets, sinks, bathtubs and kitchen drains often get clogged from unwanted residue filtering through them on a daily basis, such as hair and grease. Signs that your drains are clogged include:

  • Water backing up out of a sink
    Pools of water in the shower and near the tub
  • Toilet bubbling when you run the sink
  • Gurgling drains after using the washing machine or dishwasher
  • Slowly draining water that forms pools
  • Smell of rotting food near the kitchen sink

The Right Tools for the Job

It's not uncommon for soap, grease or organic materials to build up in your pies over time. Without proper treatment, this excessive buildup can cause real problems like flooding or pipe failure.

To prevent these problems, it's a good idea to have a certified plumber take a close look at your clogged drains to determine the most effective solution.

We use several methods to do the job right.

Cabling or Snaking

When clearing a clog in a pipe, our plumbers insert a long metal cable through your piping to clear out large objects and sediment, such as food bits or hair.

This cabling or snaking cable is spun at high speeds while being inserted inside the piping to flush out unwanted debris.


An auger is a specially designed tool for unclogging toilets or urinals.

The process is similar to cabling or snaking, but a smaller tool is used instead of a large metal cable to recover or force debris through the plumbing trap.

High-Pressure Water Jetting

Grease, soap, sludge and other build-up can be much harder to remove.

Using a high-pressure water jet powered by a compressor and special nozzle, we can blast away even the most stuck on film.
