For blocked stormwater drains or blocked sewer drains, there may be irreparable damage caused by tree roots, shifting earth or other debris. In this case, we may need to recommend you have the affected drain excavated and replaced if the damaged caused is far too great to justify a repair. All of our plumbers have access to the latest in drain diagnosing technology and drain cleaning machinery, and have been provided with extensive training in their use. In the first instance our plumber will always attempt a repair of a damaged drain if this is a viable option. If the repair is unsuccessful, or a drain has sagged, cracked or has collapsed completely, your attending blocked drain professional will be able to excavate and replace the problematic section of drain, giving you the most durable, reliable and cost effective solution.

So, when will you excavate my drain?

Excavating and replacing a drain is generally only done in extreme cases, when there’s no other option. Drains that are old, brittle, incorrectly installed, have sagged, cracked or broken, or have been invaded by tree roots are repairable with techniques like drain relining, but these are only a temporary solution and will need to be done several times over the course of years, costing you your hard earned cash.

At Jim’s Plumbing, your local blocked drain experts, we don’t believe in short-term fixes like pipe relining, we believe in long term preventative maintenance solutions. We will always advise upon the most durable and cost effective replacement of the whole affected area. All of our blocked drain plumbers are highly trained and licensed to be able to undertake even the toughest job like excavating and replacing a drain, so there’s no need worry about anything except calling us and trusting that your problematic drain will be fixed correctly the first time, every time.

Outdoor Drain Excavations

Drain excavation and replacement is the best option for severely damaged and irreparable drains. Stormwater drain and sewer drain blockages can occasionally be so solid that they’re impossible to move, even with the latest, most advanced technology that our Jim’s Plumbing blocked drain experts have access to – for example; high powered hydro-jets. In this case, digging out and installing a new section of pipe will simply be the only option. Every one of our blocked drain plumbers will provide you with an on the spot, no obligation quote if excavation and drain replacement is required before any works are undertaken. They will be able to request excavation machinery on the same day, so we’ll be able to have your drain replaced and your water flowing perfectly again in no time at all.

So, how will you excavate my drain?

At Jim’s Plumbing, all of our plumbers are highly trained in every aspect of blocked drains clearing. Initially, we may use a CCTV drain camera to find out what’s causing your blocked stormwater drain or blocked sewer drain, and to determine the exact location of the blockage then, having located and identified the source of the blockage, we’ll decide on the best course of action to take. If clearing should be possible, your attending blocked drain expert will use the hydro jetter drain cleaning machine in an attempt to clear and clean the blockage.

Failing to clear the drain, or if the pipe is revealed by the CCTV sewer camera to be too damaged, advice and a quote (minus costs for landscaping, fencing, concreting, etc,) will be given for the excavation and replacement of the problematic blocked drain. Ever one of our Jim’s Plumbing blocked drain experts will be able to access an excavator of 1.5 tonnes to 4 tonnes, depending on the size and scope of the area to be replaced, and will be able to quickly and efficiently excavate and replace only the required section of drain.
