Drain Jetting is a much more effective way of clearing drains. Traditionally, it would normally have been completed with rods. However, rods have fundamental flaws, such as being unable to probably navigate around corners or reach other difficult to clear areas. The high pressure jetting equipment we use allows us to navigate around bends and apply far more pressure than manual rods on the blockage.
Our drain jetting equipment can be used on many types of drains and can often remove the blockage, regardless of the obstruction. The water from the jetter is under very high pressure, causing it spray with enormous force. It can easily remove grease, scale, objects and fat blockages.

Blocked Drains Service Area
How much does it cost to clear a blockage in my home/domestic property?
We currently charge a fixed cost of £85.00 which includes VAT. This covers 1 hour of our drainage engineers time. Should it take longer than 1 hour we would discuss this with you. It is impossible for us to foresee all unknown drainage issues.
What commonly blocks drains in domestic properties?
Often it is usually a build-up of waste, toilet roll, baby wipes, leaves, stones, gravel - just about everything you can imagine. Nappies cause quite a lot of blockages as people still attempt to flush them as opposed to disposing of them via a suitable bin.
When do I pay?
You can pay our engineer direct or call the office to make payment. Payment is due immediately after works have been conducted.
Will a high powered water jet damage my drains?
No - the power is moderated and controlled. Our jetting machines are state of the art and include a throttled peddle so we can easily maintain the correct pressures. Our machines can unblock the vast majority of drain issues, including root tree penetration, heavy fat build up and excess food blockages.
Do you supply your own water?
No, generally drainage jetting vans will attempt to connect to the customers' water supply via an outside tap. Alternatively, we carry many connections and we can usually connect to a kitchen or bathroom tap. It is very rare we cannot connect to a customers’ water supply.
How does a drain jetting machine clear the blockage?
Our vans contain high powered water jetting machines. Essentially, they expel water through a jetting hose and nozzle at extremely high pressures. As the water is expelled at enormous pressure it propels the hose down the drain line (with the hose being correctly handled). Rear jetting nozzles propel the hose to the blockage and once located will break and dislodge the blockage, restoring flow.
If my drain is collapsed or a large object is blocking my drain, do I still need to pay?
Unfortunately, yes. We would have still attended and attempted to resolve the blockage. We are more than happy to give you further advice and assistance at this point.
Cleaning/clearing drains and unblocking? What is the difference?
When customers call us with a blocked drain it can at times be confused with us fully cleaning/or clearing the drainage system. Unblocking a drain will consist on us locating the blockage and attempting the removal to restore the working flow of the drains. Clearing/cleaning the drains is a maintenance service - the drains will be jetted to remove waste, scale, silt, grease, fat and just about everything else from the drain walls.
I can't find a man hole - will you be able to clean/unblock my drains?
Yes. There are other solutions but we will be required to visit and survey the property.
Do you offer an emergency drain unblocking service?
Yes - call us today. We can often be with you the same day.
Are you a local company?
Yes - we only operate within the Merseyside area
Will you clean the area of sewage and waste?
Absolutely. The area will be hosed down once we've completed the drain works.
How long does the drain clearance process take?
The real answer is that it depends. The majority of drain clearances take 1 hour. However, we can often discover other issues during this time and would offer you a quotation if required.
How much does it cost?
A standard flush for 1 hour is £85.00 inc. VAT.
Can you unblock toilets too?
Yes - we can use flexible rods internally.
Do you offer a free quotation?
With drain clearance not often. This is because usually when peoples’ drains are blocked it ‘just’ requires jetting, so there isn’t much to quote unless further issues are required.
