    Drain Blockages and Clearing


    A build-up of grease, tree roots or foreign objects can make their way into the pipes leading to blockages. Our team can effectively unblock your drains and provide a clearing service for blocked sewers and storm water lines.

    There are a number of reasons why your drains may be blocked:


    Gradually over time pipes deteriorate and weaken, leading to a collapse in the pipe line. This will reduce or stop the flow of water and waste through your pipes.

    Tree Roots

    Tree or shrub roots are a common cause for drain blockages. Roots can enter the sewer lines through existing cracks and faults in the pipe, leading to a blocked drain. Using high-powered equipment, Urban Tide Plumbing can clear these tree roots from your sewer and storm water pipes.

    Broken and Cracked Pipes

    Shifting soil, tree roots, building or landscaping works can cause damage to pipes, resulting in breakages, cracks or collapses. At Urban Tide Plumbing, using high tech camera equipment, we can easily identify the cause of the problem without needing to dig up the whole pipe, saving you money and inconvenience.

    To clear blocked drains, Urban Tide Plumbing has the resources to use high pressure hydro jetting equipment. Hydro jetting is a blockage technique that is effective, adaptable and capable of clearing even the toughest blockages. This motorized drain cleaning technology blasts a stream of hot water at high pressure through a line that snakes down into a drain. The water jets scald the interior of the pipe, breaking through the thickest clogs and removing all types of debris and build-up.

    The advantages of hydro jetting to clear pipes are:

    • Removes almost any clog: The intense force of the water from a hydro-jetter is enough to break apart the most adamant blockage. It can remove obstructions that even motorized drains snakes will have problems with.
    • Safe for your pipes: Unlike chemical cleaners—or even some mechanical devices like powered drain snakes—a hydro-jetter will not damage the inside of your pipes.
    • Comprehensive: Where cleaning methods like drain snakes will only take care of large clogs, a hydro-jetter cleans out the whole drainpipe, blasting away deposits along the walls. Different types of nozzle attachments allow us to reach every part of the pipe to make sure that no spot escapes the jet’s cleansing power.
    • Long-lasting: Hydro-jetting will help prevent future problems in your drains. The high-pressure scalding action of the water makes it more difficult for debris to begin to accumulate again.
