Drains block every day, whether it is due to fine tree roots crawling into the drain pipes, or foreign objects i.e. paper, cloth, cutlery, sanitary wear, building materials etc. accidently ending up in it. A normal blockage as a result of i.e. tree roots can usually easily be unblocked by making use of drain rods. If the layout of a drain consists of a lot of curves, a drain unblocking machine is used which operates with a spring that can more easily travel along the curves and corners.
Drain camera inspections are very effective when a blockage becomes a constant problem and it is difficult to determine the cause of the problem. The drain camera is inserted into the drain as far as possible, while the live images can be viewed on a monitor and the problems can be detected and noted. It is then possible to determine if the drain pipes are cracked or damaged and whether they need to be replaced.
When building a new home or building, we install the complete draining system including the pipes, gullies, connection points etc. We also reroute drains and or connect drain pipes to the municipal drains. Complete repiping of existing drains can also be done.
There is absolutely nothing worse than wanting to run a hot bath after a long day’s work, just to discover that there is no hot water at all! Let us help you by replacing the thermostat or element or even just to lower the temperature.
The first thought jumping to your mind when you find water gathering on and cyphering through the ceiling, is that the geyser had burst! In many cases this is true, but it might also be a simpler problem i.e. leaking pipes and/or valves. The common problems could include pressure control valves, safety valves, vacuum breakers and perished copper tube. Our expert technicians are specialised in this field.

Washing machine installations
