Specialist Drain Unblocking Vehicle
The Great Unblocker
Auckland Plumbers Group has a new dedicated vehicle called The Great Unblocker to help with our drain unblocking jobs.
Drain unblocking is an important part of the drainage side of our business, to the point where we need a specialist drain unblocking vehicle. With years of experience unblocking pipes, we know what equipment works best.
The Great Unblocker has the latest drain unblocking equipment, including a state-of-the-art hydro-jet system. This unit slithers through drains to locate obstructions. It clears pipes and drains using high-pressure water that ‘cuts through’ blockages and decimates most root infiltrations.
This vehicle and equipment became operational in 2021, helping our team manage various essential jobs, like sewer and wastewater blockages.
CCTV tells the ‘hole’ picture
It is not always necessary, but CCTV assists in more complicated and challenging problems.
This ‘snakey’ camera system provides great insight into the hidden world of drains. With illumination and self-leveling video, we get invaluable insight as it makes its way through the pipework. CCTV helps identify hidden problems.
For example, the camera will identify root intrusion from trees or plants, broken pipes, or even the incorrect ‘fall’ of a drain (liquid doesn’t like flowing uphill, you know).
The camera is very helpful for identifying problems associated with blockages and pipework. CCTV and our advanced drain cleaning equipment have proven effective against the most backed-up blockages.
Not much bigger than a family car, with long-reach hoses and the latest technology, The Great Unblocker can get to almost anywhere at a customer’s site.
The Great Unblocker has specialist drain unblocking equipment. This high-pressure cutting head can break down blockages and cut through tree roots.
The Great Unblocker has everything needed to get your drains unblocked onboard, including a limited water supply, in case we can’t use yours.
