Grease, hair, debris and sludge are common causes of clogged drains, but what’s the best way to clear these blockages? In this article, we discuss all you need to know about high-pressure drain cleaning so you can make informed decisions for your home or commercial purposes.

What is high pressure drain cleaning?

Traditionally, plumbers used a ‘snake’ to clear blockages and residential drain cleaning. This is a thin, flexible auger that is sometimes also electric. Unfortunately, snakes tend to have metal components that can damage your pipes. Additionally, they may not unblock the pipe completely, leaving debris behind that will continue to accumulate and cause issues as time goes on.

High pressure drain cleaning is a motorised technique that uses pressured water to unblock clogged drains. It works by using around 80L of water every minute to quickly and efficiently clean your drains without damaging your pipes. It is considered one of the most effective methods to remove blockages in the market today, with many significant benefits. Getting a high quality professional to do the job can even ensure you don’t experience future problems with your drainage.
