Some serious cases are like roots in the drain. But there are also not-so-serious cases like a fat blockage, or one of the smaller members of your family has thrown sand into the drain.

Gully Cleaning | ACO Channel Drain Clearing

A short video showing a recent job the team completed clearing a gully / channel drain on a commercial premises.

With the bad weather recently the car park has been flooding due to the blocked gullys and causing an issue for both visitors and staff.

As you can see on the video the gully's were fully to the brim of muck but after a couple of hours were back to full working order.

A blocked or 'slow' outside drain can be a real pain overflowing constantly etc
Hope this wee video may be of help on how to unblock it without having to spend money calling someone in.
When you are putting the hode pipe down the drain you must ensure that it is not kinked or water will not pass through it. When packing cloth material round the hose pipe and packing the drain try to use old towels not sheets as i may have said. I have found that sheets absorb the water too easily and it it able to come up through the drain and not force through any obstruction/silt etc The towels need to packed very tightly and pushed down with your hand and foot. Finally when the tap is turned on stand on top of the towels and keep this pressure on them for a full 5 minutes. If water does not appear at your feey you have been successful and the drain had been cleared. all the best!

How to unclog a blocked sewer drain with a garden hose

How To Clean Drain Under Driveway, By Apple Drains

Channel Drain Across Driveway would have been a beter option here. Instead the builder put a 4 corrugated pipe under the driveway with catch basins on either side. Although this works, the corrugated pipe under concrete drive, is not the best way to go.

The line is collapsing under drive, we are gping to clean the drain and find out what is going on under drive and the discharge out through the yard.

Roots are under the driveway, so we need to use our drain cleaning machine to clear out the pipe. You could rent a machine to do this but for a few dollars more than the cost of rental, we suggest you call a drainage company. Here at Apple Drains, we can easily find out what condtion the pipe is in and if there are roots in the line as here, we can remove them with the cable.

The cost of this clean, was 127.50.and the line is now in working order and should work for a couple years until the roots grow back into the line.

Drains Not Draining? Sewer Line Clog Solutions | Roto-Rooter

Drains Not Draining? Are you experiencing problems with the drains in your home? Showers and sinks draining slowly? This can be an indication that your sewer line is clogged.

In this video, we address some common causes of household sewer problems.

Use of modern plastic sewer pipes didn't become common until the late 1970's, which keeps troublesome tree roots out of sewer systems. However, older sewer systems made of clay, concrete, and even cast iron can become susceptible to root intrusion and cause of major blockages in your home's sewer system.

An experienced Roto-Rooter plumber can cut away tree roots from your sewer line to restore flow and thoroughly clean out the sewer pipe. Roto-Rooter will also give you options for keeping roots from clogging your sewer line again, including chemical treatments and more frequent cleanings.

If, however, your sewer line is damaged, roots will continue to get inside your sewer, and grow to restrict drainage. These aggressive tree roots can even break the pipe itself. Roto-Rooter can handle pipe spot repairs or even full sewer-line replacements, using the latest conventional and trenchless technology.

Schedule a service call and professional inspection of your sewer with a Roto-Rooter expert today. Call us at 1-800-GET-ROTO or visit us at

How does the hydro jet drain cleaning machine actually clear a blocked drain?

With the introduction of the Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning equipment to the Australian plumbing market its not unusual to get asked many questions about how the actual hydro jet clears blocked drains.
People often think that because the hose doesn't actually have an aggressive cutting device attached to the end of it that it couldn't get through tree roots etc. Well that is very in correct, in my latest video I run you through the various different nozzles which i use when it comes to un blocking your drain pipes and how the actual hydro jetting nozzles work and which nozzle suits each application.
Its amazing to think that water can just about cut through anything when used correctly. The hydro jetter injects 4000psi of water pressure into these very small nozzles and then proceeds to remove any type of blockage in its way.
Please have a look at this video and I hope you learn something from it.

Drain Clearing Demonstration - Aqua King Services

This is a demonstration to show a pipe with a 1/2 a meter section of pipe being completely blocked with barks and large stones. This resembles what could possibly blocking your pipes. The cutting head used is a warthog which has two rear jets and one forward facing jet to enable it to push through and clear out the debris or tree roots that are blocking your drain. When the pressure builds it enables the cutting head to rotate which also assists in the cutting and clearing of the pipe. You will note that the blocked section of pipe was cleared with ease. If you would like some more information or if you have a blocked pipe you need cleared please call us on 1800 2 RELINE (73 546) and we will be more than happy to assist you.

Do We Need Bigger Culverts? - Flash Flood at the Farm!

After a very wet beginning to the month, on June 15, 2019 the farm received nearly 4 inches of rain in a 24 hour window. At one point, we received as much as 1.5 inches in a 15 minute period! The surrounding fields were overly saturated and an immense amount of surface water (flash flood) flushed through the farm. Chris and Adam separately documented the event. It seems they had never seen water before. It's a shame we didn't already have the pond!
