Blocked drain cleaning and drain repairs

At Plumbing Johannesburg we usually clear drains using a drain rooter machine. Its main advantage is that it can cut through tree roots and other hard obstructions, clearing your drain and waste pipes so we can flush them through.

Once tree roots have found a way into your drain and sewer pipes, they will continue to grow back as they rely on the water as a food source. Cutting tree roots is not permanent and will always grow back. If tree roots are present, Plumbing Johannesburg recommend having your drains cleaned every 4 months to keep the unnecessary smells at bay!

Should we find that your drain has collapsed, we may then recommend drain replacement or trenchless relining.

When scheduling a plumber to clear blocked drains and waste pipes, we usually allow 30 – 60 minutes labour, however this is dependent on individual circumstances.
