Frequently Asked Questions

Blocked drains and sewer lines cause major disruptions to households and they are incredibly unhygienic, so they need to be unblocked immediately. For many years, homeowners have tried using regular plumbing tools or chemical drain cleaners to resolve the problem, only to have the drain block again after a few days or weeks. Cue the need for sewer jetting.

Sewer jetting, otherwise known as hydro jetting or water jetting, is a safe, efficient, environmentally friendly, and non-invasive drain cleaning system. This helps homeowners to restore and keep their plumbing’s drainage system healthy, clean, and free from hazardous and stubborn blockages.  Sewer jetting can be used to maintain drains or clear blockages on residential, commercial, or municipal sewer drainage systems. Sewer jetting can only be done by a trained and accredited drain cleaning plumber. 

One of the symptoms your sewer is blocked is when your fixtures all fail at the same time. When multiple fixtures fail, this is a sure sign that the problem is with the pipeline.  These are the fixtures that you should inspect first if you want to validate whether the problem is with your sewer or not:

There are two things that you can do. First, check if the water goes down the drain. If it does not, you can proceed and check other fixtures because the problem might just be with your sink. Second, let the water run continuously for about a minute or so. If this causes any effect to the water in your toilet, there is a big chance that the problem is with your sewer.

  • Bath and Shower. Do the same test with the sink. If the water does not go down the drain, check whether it affects toilet water as well.
  • Toilet. This is probably the most tell-tale fixture of all because it is directly connected to the sewer. One of the signs your sewer is blocked is when water backs up or percolates after flushing. If you notice this, do not wait until other fixtures fail.  Search ‘drain cleaning plumber near me’ and get a professional to come and take a look.
