How Does Sewer Pipe Locating Work?

Sometimes things get flushed that shouldn't be! Toys, jewellery, you name it, we’ve seen it all. Sewage blockages really don’t smell great, so when there’s a blockage it’s important to act fast. However, sometimes it’s not always clear where a sewage line runs. When it comes to sewer pipe locating, Mr Plumber has you covered.

There are many causes of blocked sewage drains such as foreign objects, hairballs, fatty build up and tree root intrusion. A sewer drain camera inspection might be required to find the true source of the blockage. CCTV equipment can also be handy when it comes to sewer pipe locating.

Depending on the cause of the sewer blockage, our experienced plumbers have various methods of cleaning drains. Our vans are fitted with tools such as a plumbing snake or electric eel, which is long wire which is carefully fed down a drain or sewer line which will either break the blockage up or allow it to be pulled back out when the wire is retracted. 

For difficult blockages, a water jetter (also known as a sewer jetter or drain jetter) may be used. Water jetters use high-pressure water to clear the drain blockage. We may also deploy a robotic cutter -- which is equipment that can be passed along the drain be used to cut out hard objects such as tree roots.
