JOB OF THE WEEK: STORM - WATER BLOCKAGE
JOB OF THE WEEK : Storm-water blockage
This week we were called to a unit block where the storm water lines seemed not to be working effectively. We firstly used our high pressure water jetter down the lines which would clear any debris buildup, but this proved not to help the situation, and the blockage remained.
We then proceeded to use our CCTV camera to check the pipework, and to our surprise we found a cement buildup in approxiametely 20 meters of pipework. In this instance the sheer volume of concrete buildup meant that a large section of this damaged pipework needed replacement.
It is never a good idea to dispose of concrete or other setting agents down drains, your best option is to read the manufacturers guide on packaging as they will usually give you alternative solution to disposal of the substance.
If you are experiencing a blocked drain, then call in the plumbing experts at AMPS PLUMBING, we service all areas of the central coast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call Today!!
