Pooman is a team of expert drain unblockers who are always at the ready to help you out in a crisis. Before we start the process of clearing your drain we look for where the blockage might be happening first. This ensures that your drains don't get damaged during the unblocking process.
That’s why we use a CCTV camera to check the inside of your drains from the get go. This allows the operator to view the inside of your drains to see what might be causing the issue.
A quick inspection can also reveal unseen root damage or broken pipes that may have been caused by earthquake damage.
Sometimes we’ll use a drain snake to clear any soft blockages. A drain snake has a long flexible cable that is inserted down the pipe and then pulled back up again. This action creates suction which helps dislodge the debris.
We'll only use a drain snake when the blockage is soft so that's why we need to know what we’re dealing with first. If the blockage is too hard then the drain snake may damage the drain. So, please don’t try to do this yourself without checking with us first.
