If the marvel of your home or premises’ drains is not immediately clear, that’s because they’re working a treat. Normally, it’s when the water and waste in that sink, bath or shower is slow to drain that alerts you to a problem. Before long, that drain may be smelling foul, gurgling, bubbling, and eventually leaving a damaging pool of water at your feet and in your floors, walls and foundations. So if you’re smart, you’ll have some DIY drain cleaning tools handy – and you may only need to dedicate 10 minutes to use them.

But while a DIY tool used to unclog drains can be very effective for minor blockages of soap, hair food debris and other drain gunk, not every drain problem are quite so simple.
For instance, some debris blockages are compact and robust, and caused by a large, single object, tree roots, pipe overload, or a sloping pipe. Perhaps your pipes were badly installed, or suffering from scaling, or maybe there’s physical damage like a pipe collapse – or it’s a combination of factors that leave you wringing your hands and searching for a good drain cleaning plumber.
When your plumber arrives, they won’t just be armed with a plunger or those other DIY drain unblocking tools, though. In their van will be sophisticated, expensive and technologically state of the art professional drain blockage tools that should diagnose and help to remedy even the most mysterious, serious or complex of your drain problems.

This is the sort of tech that isn’t out of place in military settings, because it combines state-of-the-art, 360-degree, high definition video technology and puts it where the plumber’s senses won’t reach – deep into every pipe and drain.
