Clearing Blocked Drains

Unblocking external drains is a crucial service provided by professional companies like Pro-Rod Drainage Solutions Ltd. The process typically involves several key steps to ensure effective and long-lasting results:

1. Initial Assessment:

The process begins with an initial assessment of the external drains. This step is crucial in understanding the nature and extent of the blockage. Our technicians will conduct a visual inspection to determine the location, size, and severity of the blockage. This assessment helps in devising the best approach to unblocking the drains.

2. Drain Cleaning:

Once the assessment is complete, the next step involves drain cleaning. Pro-Rod Drainage utilizes specialized equipment and techniques to clear the blockage. High-pressure water jetting and drain rods are commonly used tools. High-pressure water jetting involves the use of pressurised water to dislodge and flush away obstructions, while drain rods are long, flexible rods used to physically break up and push through blockages. The choice of method depends on the nature of the blockage and its location within the drainage system.

3. Inspection:

Following successful blockage removal, a thorough inspection of the external drains is conducted. The inspection is a critical step to ensure that there are no residual blockages or underlying issues that might lead to future problems. Using specialized cameras and inspection tools, we will carefully examine the entire drainage system. This step helps identify any structural damage, root intrusions, or other potential issues that could compromise the integrity of the drains.

4. Repair:

In the event that the inspection reveals any damage or underlying issues, we offer a full repair services. These repairs may include fixing cracked or broken pipes, sealing joints, removing tree roots, or addressing any other structural problems within the drainage system. Repair work is essential to ensure the long-term functionality and integrity of the external drains.

5. Maintenance:

To prevent future blockages and maintain the proper functioning of external drains, we provide a number of maintenance service packages. Regular maintenance can include activities such as drain cleaning on a scheduled basis, preventive treatments to discourage blockages, and advice on best practices for maintaining a clear and efficient drainage system.
