Drains can become blocked for several reasons:
plant or tree root invasion

foreign objects being flushed into the system

a build-up of fats, grease and dirt

faulty or failing drain

Of these, root invasion poses the greatest, long-term problem — roots simply grow back; an unrepaired pipe leaves the door open, so to speak.
 
Problems Solved

Before Clearflow there was the Electric Eel and Rooter Scooter. Both suffered flaws and often left behind substantial root activity.

Now closed-circuit TV (CCTV) and better still, Clearflow’s Mainline Tractor technology, together with high pressure drain cleaning (Jet Rodding), blow the old ways to smithereens.

Add to these processes Clearflow’s innovative pipe rehabilitation system and your drains will be like new again!

 
CCTV and Jet Rodding

For the technically minded, the Jet Rod’s working pressure is around 5000 PSI. Working at this pressure, Clearflow’s system removes 100% of the blockage — it will be a long time between drinks for the invasive root system, and all foreign objects and blockages will be quickly dispensed with.

This Means Clearflow Can Do What Others Cannot

Here are a few examples:

With barely an hour to go before their wedding reception, a distraught couple reported a burst sewer pipe underneath the nuptial lawn. The hosts were so delighted with Clearflow’s rapid response, they invited the team to the reception.
