The rods are composed of flexible steel, which can spring up to 100 feet in length. They are fitted with blades or cutters that can effectively remove drain blockages and deposits in inaccessible places.
These electrically driven machines are employed inside properties where high pressure water jetting is inappropriate, allowing us to the clear internal pipework which is used for sink, basin and bath wastes. A larger machine can be used to clear soil pipes from toilets, usually without the need to dismantle any pipework or removing the toilet bowl.
Patch repairs are also a great way to prevent root ingress, seal cracks or fractures and to prevent vermin from entering the drainage system due to holes in broken pipes.
