WHY WE WERE CALLED

Last Tuesday proximity plumbing was called to Hopetoun Avenue Vaucluse NSW 2030, after reports of a blocked drain. As we were local and had one of our senior plumbers working just in Bondi Beach, we were able to get to the site within 30 min. Once onsite we confirmed that the cause of the blockage was tree roots, and this would need the use of a high-pressure jetter.

WHAT WE DID

After a couple of hours of high pressure jetting onsite, we managed to clear the blockage. As standard, we used what’s called a CCTV camera to inspect the drain and get a better understanding of the condition of the existing sewer line. We confirmed that the line was original earthenware clay pipe, and this would be prone to further root problems.

We provided a new solution which is called “Pipe Relining” which provides the option of repairing the pipe with no excavation required. As the owner has just finished landscaping his entire backyard and building a new pool we were delighted with this option.

RESULTS

By the end of the next day, all works were completed as if we were never there and now the owner has the reassurance that we provide a lifetime labour warranty and a manufactures warranty of 35 years. Better still as part of our agreement, we return to the site every year to complete a complimentary camera analysis to ensure all works are perfect.
