For Blocked Stormwater Drains or Blocked Sewer Drains, there may be irreparable damage caused by tree roots, shifting earth or other debris. In this case, we will recommend you have the affected drain excavated and replaced. All our Metropolitan Drain Cleaning’s blocked drains experts have access to only the latest and greatest drain diagnosing and clearing machinery, and provide extensive training in their use to all our blocked drains plumbers. If that doesn’t work, or a drain has sagged, cracked or has collapsed completely, your attending blocked drain professional will be able to excavate and replace the problematic section of drain, giving you the most durable, cost effective solution to your drainage woes.

So, when will you excavate my drain?

Excavating and replacing a drain is generally only done in extreme cases, when there’s no other option. Drains that are old, brittle, incorrectly installed, have sagged, cracked or broken, or have been invaded by tree roots are repairable with techniques like drain relining, but these are only a temporary solution and will need to be done several times over the course of years, costing you your hard earned cash. At Metropolitan Drain Cleaning, your local blocked drains expert, we don’t believe in short-term fixes like pipe relining, so we will always advise the far more durable and cost effective replacement of the whole affected area. All our blocked drains plumbers are highly trained and licensed to be able to undertake even the toughest job like excavating and replacing a drain, so there’s no need worry about anything except calling us.

Damage is just the most common situation where drain excavation and replacement will be best. Blocked stormwater drains and blocked sewer drains can occasionally be so solid that they’re impossible to move, even with the latest, most advanced technology that our Metropolitan Drain Cleaning’s blocked drains experts have access to. In this case, digging out and installing a new section of pipe will simply be the only option. Every one of our blocked drain plumbers will be able to request excavation machinery on the same day, so we’ll be able to have your drain replaced and your water flowing perfectly again in no time at all.

So, how will you excavate my drain?

At Metropolitan Drain Cleaning, all our plumbers are highly trained in every aspect of blocked drains clearing. Initially, we’ll use a CCTV drain camera to find what’s causing your blocked stormwater drain or blocked sewer drain, then, having located and identified the source of the blockage, we’ll decide on the best course of action to take. If clearing should be possible, your attending blocked drain expert will use the hydro jetter drain cleaning machine in an attempt to remove it.

Failing to clear the drain, or if the pipe is revealed by the CCTV sewer camera to be too damaged, advice and a quote (minus costs for landscaping, fencing, concreting, etc,) will be given for the excavation and replacement of the problematic blocked drain. Ever one of our Metropolitan Drain Cleaning blocked drains experts will be able to access an excavator of 1.5 tonnes to 4 tonnes, depending on the size and scope of the area to be replaced, and will be able to quickly and efficiently excavate and change the required section of drain.
