Digging Up & Repairs

When most drains fail to drain, it’s because of a blockage. Our experts work 24/7 to clear blocked drains and get your wastewater draining again.

However, sometimes the blockage is more significant. For example, perhaps a drainpipe has broken and it needs to be addressed without the typical drain clearing tools like high pressure jets.

Our experts can assess this situation and determine the problem with a CCTV drain camera  (without using any invasive techniques) and they’ll give you a clear and understandable explanation of what repairs need to take place and the process to repair them. You’ll get all the information you need so you can decide if the repair is right for your family.


Two Ways To Repair Blocked Or Broken Pipes

At PlumberAssist, we use two ways to repair pipes, and we’ll explain which option is better for your situation.

  • Trenchless repair: we’ll use our CCTV drain camera to view the problem, we’ll use our other tools (including our high-powered water jet) to clear any obstructions, then we’ll use a special “patch” system to repair the broken section. Our experts can do this without digging.
  • Digging up and repair: in some situations, we will need to dig to repair. We’ll dig down to the broken area, make the necessary repairs, and replace the soil and any landscaping that needed to be moved for the repair.

The patch system inserts a liner into the broken pipe, where it cures and turns into a solid piece of replacement pipe, and we use this patch system for both trenchless repair and repairs that require digging.

Our experts will give you all the information you need to make a decision that’s right for your family. Once we have your approval, our experts will get to work. We may bring in a larger team and additional equipment as necessary to complete the work as efficiently as possible so your family is not inconvenienced.
