Hydro-Jet drain cleaning
The way we clean drains today is changing.
Slade Bros Plumbing has always provided a comprehensive range of
services to our clients. To further enhance the services we provide
to our clients, we are pleased to announce that Slade Bros Plumbing
now offer a Hydro-Jet drain cleaning service.
Why do we need this system? With the common use of 90mm PVC
stormwater pipe in domestic properties, to the use of polyethylene
pipe in commercial applications has meant that the traditional way
of clearing pipes does not always provide a result.
At last we are able to clear up 90mm pipe as well as additional
capabilities with all pipes up to 225mm.
Introducing The Hydro Jet Solution
What is hydro-jetting? It is the cleaning of drains with a high
pressure water jet at up to 35,000kpa. This is accomplished by feeding
a self propelled hose with a specifically designed nozzle up the

Instead of just boring a hole through the tree roots and breaking
some off, the jets of high pressure water will cut roots and leave
the walls of the pipe clean.
are many places an electric eel cannot go where a jetter hose travels
with ease and does the job more effectively and efficiently. We
have a variety of nozzles for use in 40mm to 225mm pipes with the
ability to pull through toilet pans and tight PVC gully traps.
Hydro-jetting is the only method of cleaning storm water drains
blocked by silt and sediment build up. An electric eel will simply
bore through the dirt in the drain leaving the dirt behind when
the rods are retrieved. The hydro-jet method penetrates the dirt
and flushes the drain in one action, leaving the drain clean.
Electric eels — now over 35 years old — cannot be used
effectively in 90mm stormwater drains due to the acute angles of
the fittings. Our hydro-jet machine is able to negotiate these fittings
and thoroughly clean 90mm drains.
the use of this equipment, there is now an alternative to resorting
to the shovel after finding that the eel could not penetrate the
blockage. The machine is compact and powerful and very successful
when used correctly for cleaning commercial and residential drainage
