Blocked Drains & CCTV Inspections

RTL Trades team of Plumbers based in Brisbane and the Gold Coast have specialist technicians with decades worth of experience in blocked drains and are fully trained in the use of the CCTV Drain Camera.

Blocked Drains, Sewers and CCTV Drain Camera

Our drainage specialists use the latest equipment to quickly clear your drain and establish the ROOT cause of your issue.

Using electric eels, high pressure jett blasting and even vacuum excavation if required, our team of highly trained and experienced professionals will have your blocked drain cleared quickly with absolutely no guess work involved.

We also have state of the art CCTV and pipe locating equipment to determine exactly where the blockage is occurring and with the help of our colour CCTV drain camera we can visually see what has caused the blockage in the first place.

Once the drain camera has diagnosed the problem, the section of the broken pipe could then be replaced or relined to prevent future blockages or persistent tree roots continuing to cause issues with your drain.

Post-drain camera inspection, RTL Trades are able to provide you with:

  • A USB of the CCTV Drain Inspection
  • A report with recommendations
  • A no obligation quote for the repair or replacement of the drain sections, including pipe relining.

Common causes of blocked sewers and drains in Brisbane and Gold Coast homes, apartments and commercial premises.

  • A cracked or broken pipe – leaving tree roots, debris, dirt and other materials to enter the drain from the environment. Toilet paper and flushed sanitary items can also get caught on any breaks, which can quickly and easily clog up the drain
  • Pipe has sagged, bellied or collapsed – Very hard to find without the CCTV inspection, usually requires the affected section of pipework to be excavated and replaced.
  • Tree roots – one of the most common causes of blocked drains and sewers! Pesky tree roots can very easily infiltrate the pipe work through already present breaks and cracks in the pipework. We’ve seen tree roots meters and meters in length… and they will keep coming back, particularly during a drought when the tree seeks out water. ​Pipe Relining is an effective way of managing tree roots in your drains and sewers. 

It doesn’t take long for invading tree roots or sagging pipes to become a serious problem.
