Robotic CCTV Drain Plumbing Inspections

When it’s unclear what is causing a drain blockage or if a pipe is damaged and needs to be relined, Closed Circuit TV drain inspection cameras are employed to assist with the diagnosis.

Using this technology, Kleen Plumbing’s licensed blocked drain plumbers are able to fully assess the condition of your drains or pipes and carry out a thorough CCTV blocked drain plumbing inspection of both new and existing drains of all sizes for damage, tree root intrusion or other issues.

Cameras of various sizes can be used in different scenarios, with common inspections including:

  • CCTV sewer and stormwater mains inspections
  • CCTV pool drain inspections
  • CCTV drain inspection for household plumbing (bathroom, kitchen and laundry drains)

Often the CCTV cameras are used in conjunction with high-pressure water jetters when unblocking drains.

How to tell if you have a blocked drain

Slow drainage in your sink, bath, or shower is one of the most common signs that you may have a blocked drain. Gurgling noises or bubbles coming from drains, toilets, or pipes can indicate air is trapped in the pipes, creating strange noises as water tries to flow past the blockage. A constant foul smell from drains or elsewhere on your property may be caused by decomposing waste trapped by a blockage, and wet or soggy spots on your lawn or an unusual patch of taller, greener grass, may indicate leaking water is saturating the soil, creating wet spots and excessive lawn growth.

Decreased water pressure from taps or showers may also indicate a blockage, restricting water flow and leading to reduced pressure inside your home's local plumbing system. More serious signs include foundation cracks or subsidence in the ground caused by water escaping from a blocked pipe and eroding the soil, and possibly even affect the stability of your houses foundation. Water stains or damage on floors, walls, or ceilings may arise if a pipe is blocked and water is unable to move through your plumbing system normally.

What to do if you suspect you have a blocked drain or pipe

If you suspect you have a blocked underground water pipe, inspect your drains and plumbing fixtures for signs of slow drainage, water backup, or gurgling sounds. Check outside for wet ground or evidence of ground subsidence on your property, especially if there's been no recent rain. Before the problem worsens, seek professional help by calling Kleen Plumbing to arrange a blocked drain specialist to visit your property. We will use our specialized drain inspection and clearing equipment to identify and fix the pipe blockage.

Bocked drain cleaning

Drainage plumbing issues can be caused by all sorts of obstructions including tree roots, silts, fat and household grime or a general build-up of debris.

Typically, high-pressure water jetting machines are an extremely effective and efficient way to clean and clear blocked sewer mains, stormwater drains and pits, sewage systems, septic systems, gully traps, down pipes and general household drains or pipes (kitchen waste, baths, showers, toilets, laundry etc).

Particularly effective with slimy, sludgy build-ups and tree root infiltrations, high-pressure jetters can reach drain blockages further along pipes than a conventional electric eel or drain snake, therefore saving you time and money.

Robotic Pipe Cutting Services

Every drain plumbing job in Sunshine Coast and North Brisbane is different and every drain blockage is unique. For the instances when a high-pressure water jetter isn’t sufficient for our blocked drain plumber to get the job done, Kleen Plumbing can employ the latest pipe cutting and extraction equipment.

With a range of robotic pipe cutters at their disposal, the Kleen Plumbing team are able to remove stubborn material from within the pope to restore water flow, including roots, barnacles, concrete, steel, star pickets, timber pegs and general obstructions.

It can also be used to rectify crushed pipes and reinstate junctions.

No-Dig Pipe Relining Services

When drains are damaged, the Kleen Plumbing Sunshine Coast and North Brisbane team adopt the most modern method of drain repair to prevent ex-filtration or blockages: Trenchless pope relining.

The no-dig relining solution avoids the need for cutting through slabs and digging up yards for repairs including:

  • Cracks and holes in drains
  • Displaced or separated pipes
  • Tree root invasions

Excavation work involved in digging up drains is costly, time-consuming and disruptive so relining is definitely preferable.

Utilising the superior Brawoliner relining method developed in Germany, Kleen’s drain and plumbing services are able to expertly provide junction relining, inversion relining (long lengths of pipe), sectional relining (patch relining) and pipe coating. The process essentially involves the blocked drain plumbers installing a resin-impregnated felt liner to form a new pipe, which then bonds to the existing pipe to completely restore the damaged drain from the inside.

This hassle-free process rebuilds the pipe from the inside, creating a new and even stronger section. Better still, you’ll have a longer warranty period than if you chose to have a drain re-laid.
