If you have drains that are overflowing or completely blocked, it’s important to get these draining water ASAP. Water back flowing up drains, into walls an ceiling cavities can cause massive damage to your property

A blocked drain connected to a downpipe and gutter could destroy an eave or outside ceiling cavity in as little as a few hours of rain!

Over a period of time deposits such as tree roots, fat, grease, silt and scale build up on the pipe wall, reducing the hydraulic efficiency of the drain.

With a sewer jet compressor sending 21L per minute at a pressure of 5000PSI to the blockage in your drains through a rotational cutting head we can clean out your drains quicker and with less damage to drains than electro mechanical methods.

Rear facing jets drive the jet rod through the drain to the problem area where the forward facing cutting jets blast through the obstruction. Once the head can pass through the blockage the rear facing jets can then further break up the blockage and flush them through the line. The deposits are flushed out of the pipe and the drain is returned to a free flowing condition.

We also carry Venturi pumps that operate with the Sewer Jet and can be used to pump out large volumes of water at a rate of 1000L in 3 Minutes. These pieces of equipment are made for situations like a flooded basement or downstairs storage area that has been affected by a blocked drain.

Our Sewer Jet can also remove graffiti, clean floors and cleaning the inside of tanks. The versatility of high pressure water jetting is endless.

Once the drain has been cleared Adept plumbing and gas can then carry out color CCTV inspection of the line. The drain camera footage is recorded onto DVD, which can either be kept by the client or at our office for future reference.

Our Rigid Scout Locator accurately positions the cause of the blockage, as well as the depth of the blockage. Adept plumbing and gas can then provide an accurate quote for remedial works required to remove blockages, repair the drain and it back to perfect condition.

Pre-Purchase House Plumbing Surveys

Adept now offers a brilliant ‘peace of mind’ service. When purchasing a home, consider a House Plumbing Survey. We’ll inspect the entire property to ensure drains, water and septic systems are fully operational with no leaks or blockages.

Imagine finding you have a problem with your drains, after your purchase is complete. Especially if it is a waste or complex drainage problem. What would it cost to dig the road up, or replace an entire septic system?

A video of the survey is presented to the customer, along with a comprehensive report. We will also recommend any remedial work that may be identified from the survey and supply a quotation, giving you further information that may aid you in negotiation when making your purchase.
