How do i get concrete or stones out of my plumbing pipes?
There is no “do-it-yourself” method to remove concrete, cement, bricks from a drain pipe.
The only way to remove this type of blockage from your waste water drainage system without excavating or damaging the pipe, is by making use of a drain cleaning specialist who offers a micro cutting service , or an industrial high pressure drain cleaning machine.
Micro cutting is carried out with specialized equipment. The operators of these tools have many years of experience and are able to grind down the obstruction without damaging the pipework.
They can clear pipes made from cast iron, clay, concrete and PVC.
Micro cutting safely grinds down the solid object inside the pipe into smaller pieces. Once the grinding process is complete, the broken-down pieces are then removed from the pipe by a high pressure jetting machine.
This procedure is the safest and most cost effective way to remove the solid obstruction without causing damage to the pipe.
Industrial jet cleaning machines run at 4300psi @ 31litres a minute, and are fueled with powerful diesel engines. Industrial or commercial drainmen usually work from the manhole outside of the building but they are able to connect extensions onto their equipment which will allow them to reach inside of a residential or commercial building
