CCTV Camera Inspection: We have state-of-the-art CCTV cameras that can locate blockages to the utmost accuracy. And, with the precise location and depth of a blockage, we can provide a fixed repair quote. We take a video of the drain before (when possible) and after cleaning an obstruction and provide you with a free copy via email, or USB.
Our CCTV cameras offer reliability, so there will be no wondering if your drain will block again during the most inconvenient time! All our work is guaranteed so you can sleep easy at night knowing it won’t happen again.
We include a CCTV camera inspection with every blocked drain job to make sure there are no breaks or additional obstructions further down the line – at no extra charge to you!
Types of Blocked Drains
Blocked toiletToilet blockages are often a result of a simple pan blockage; where too much toilet paper, paper towels, wipes or sanitary items has been flushed down the toilet. In most cases, a plunger will dislodge the obstruction. However, if the clogg is due to a broken pipe or dislodgement in the fittings, you will need to call iSpecialise. Using our special CCTV camera, we can locate the problem and provide a fixed quote for the repair. We clear these toilet blockages by locating a drain opening and clearing the drain using our specialist equipment.
Blocked Basin SinkBlocked basin sinks are common occurrences and are usually that result of clogged soap scum and hair. Clearing them is often as simple as using a plunger or clearing of the plug and wastes or trap. However, if this fails, we send our hand auger down the waste pipe to clear the drain or retrieve any obstruction causing the blockage.
Blocked Shower DrainAs with a blocked basin, a blocked shower or bathtub drain usually due to hair and soap scum build-up. If you have a 100mm grate in your shower you can reach down and collect any excess hair from the trap, you may also be able to plunge way the old shower scum using a rodding plunger which is not the typical plunger you would use on a sink. These have a flat 100mm rubber disk at the end and can be pushed down the drain to help push through any debris. If all else fails, give iSpecialise a call. Our unblocking drain equipment will clear the clogged drain effectively & affordably.
Blocked Kitchen SinkKitchen sink blockages are unique. We won't find lindt or hair down a kitchen sink drain, but we do find grease and fats. Grease and fat build-ups are formed from rinsing dishes and pots and pans, usually when cleaned using cold water. As the oil and fats cool down in the drainage system, they solidify, generally in the kitchen trap or overflow relief gully. This can result in what us plumbers call fatbergs; big build-ups of fat and grease that look like icebergs in your drain!! In such cases, you will need to call iSpecialise. We can unblock your drain using either a drain snake or our hydro jetter.
Blocked Laundry TubsBlocked laundry tubs are less common, but it does happen; usually as a result of lint build-up from your washing machine. You may be able to clear the clog by taking the trap apart or by merely plunging your sink. If you are unable to clear a blocked laundry tub yourself, then it's time to call iSpecialise – Don't leave it till you need to put on a load of washing as it will result in an overflowing sink and a flooding laundry!
