Drain Unblocking Root Cutting

When it comes to your drains, keeping them free of tree roots is often the key to keeping the pipes intact and working properly. Unfortunately, most people do not become aware that they need drain unblocking Auckland services until the pipes are already compromised and are backing up into their lawn or even their home. If you need drain unblocking or root cutting call Auckland’s expert drain unblockers Just Drain Unblocking on 0800 003 495.

Tree roots can grow a considerable length to reach your drain. In fact, roots are actually attracted to the drain because of the moisture and nutrients which emanate from the pipe itself. Once the root cracks into the drainage pipe, it will expand at a much greater speed to soak up all the nutrients inside. It is usually shortly after this happens that you’ll notice water in your lawn or the drainage pipe actually backing up.

How to Deal with a Root-Clogged Drain

At this point, actually dealing with the problem will take calling the professionals who have the equipment to actually clean out your drainage system. Ordinary chemical cleansers will not work as the roots are simply too strong to be affected. Ignoring the problem will only make it grow worse as the water floods your lawn and backs up your drainage systems. However, there are methods that the professionals use by using blocked drains root cutting procedures. These procedures are quick, effective and can rid your drainage system of the blockage quickly and do so without using harsh chemicals which can compromise your lawn.

The Hydro Jet

One of the most effective means of drain root cutting is the hydro jet, which essentially is putting a flexible hose into the drainage system and then forcing through water at very high pressure which in turn cuts through the roots and clears them away. This method has a number of advantages, which is why many professional companies actually use the hydro jet to clear away the roots.


Flexibility: Because the hose is not rigid, it can negotiate around the twists and turns of the drainage system with ease. This allows the hose to get as close as possible to the intruding roots.

Nozzle: There are different nozzles that can be used to clear away the roots, silt or debris that might be clogging the drain. In this manner, the right nozzle can do the job more efficiently and quickly.

Power: The pressure is such that the water acts as a drain root cutting tool much like a saw as it slices through the roots and clears them away at up to 4,000 psi.

Water: There are no chemicals used in the hydro jet which makes it perfectly safe and environmentally friendly.


Overall, the hydro jet is one of the most effective tools to get rid of roots in your drainage system. If you either have or suspect that your drain is compromised by tree roots, then be sure to call the drain unblocking Auckland professionals who use the hydro jet method.
