    When it comes to the severity of a drain problem, given the location and circumstances, the best method of repair would be to undergo an excavate and replace process.

    Drain replacement consists of digging out and removing the damaged section of the drain and replacing this with new PVC pipe. This involves excavating the area such as cutting out sections of concrete, excavating soil grounds, or raising pavers, which is all replaced and made good upon any job completion.

  • Tree Roots Causes Blockage


    Tree roots intrusion is the most common cause of blocked drains. The roots normally enter drains through any cracks and restrict water flow, in turn causing a blockage after time. Over time, having a large amount of tree root intrusion can cause a break in the sewer lines or stormwater drains where they would eventually wrap around the drain and restrict the drain until they cause a blockage.

    It’s recommended to have regular maintenance of tree roots entering your drains to ensure continuous flow. If you’re experiencing tree roots infesting your drains, call us today for a quote to clear your blocked drain or for a permanent drain fix.
