There are different types of block drains:

  • shower blockages,
  • toilet blockages,
  • stormwater blockages,
  • sewer spraying from the sky from overflowing sewer main’s,


There are many types of high water pressure hydraulic drain clearing heads to clear the appropriate type of blockage. When clearing a block drain using the high-pressure water jet so as to provide the customers job I had the correct Hydraulic water size cutting head to clear your blocked drain. In order to get your block drain cleared, using the water Jetter, the first step is to clear the blockage, once the blockage is clear or partially clear the water goes away but this doesn’t mean that the problem is completely fixed. This means it is time to use the Colour Drain Camera we need to insert the drain camera down the sewer pipe opening to inspect the blockage.


The way we can inspect the broken pipe or root intrusion or the amount of debris which is causing the blockage is by using the colour drain camera and work out the best course of action to take to clear the blockage properly. At this stage we need to locate the position of the blockage as its either under the floor of the blocked bathroom or outside the house in the garden. To locate a blockage in the sewer line we will need to use the radio detection colour drain camera locating device.


At Cherrybrook Plumbing we have over 39 years experience clearing block drains. Quite often we are called in after a customer has already had their drain cleared by three or four other plumbers which have caused damage to bathroom areas causing overflow in bathrooms and running away from the job.
