drain jettingWe specialise in clearing all types of blocked drains from sewage drains, storm water drains, blocked toilets and blocked sinks. We use quality, industry accredited, high pressure water jetting equipment, providing you with a fast, efficient and therefore, cost effective method of solving your issues.

Local plumbers have the equipment and engineers to offer high pressure water jetting to your drains. These machines are built to cope with all manner of blocked drains, from tree roots penetrating the pipes right the way through to extremely heavy fat and food blockages, all without risking damage to the pipes themselves.


When you have blocked drains, it can be an unpleasant experience with the blockages, sluggish water draining and foul smells that are caused. These blockages are usually caused by oil, grease, hair, amongst other items, which clog up your pipes, therefore making it difficult for water to circulate around your system.

Local Plumbers are experienced drain engineers that are always available to unblock your drains. Over the years, we have faced many blocked drains from kitchen blocked drains, bathroom blocked drains, blocked toilets, blocked sinks, street blocked drains to commercial blocked drains and have overcome a whole spectrum of drainage issues. Before undertaking any serious work, we will give your drains a thorough examination to locate where the blockage is.

Drain jetting is an effective way to clear your drains. While you can use drain rods to clear blockages, these sometimes cannot reach the problem, or simply force it further along the pipe. High Pressure Water Jetting can be far more effective as the jetting hose can negotiate bends, travel further down the pipe, and exert more force on any blockage to remove it. We solve the blocked drains by using the drain jetting equipment, there are various techniques we use to solve the trouble, which can be used to restore your drains to a full working order.

Why choose us?

In reality, the first visible signs of a blocked drain may indicate that the problem has been present for a while. With this in mind, it is important that the cause and solution are identified and discovered as quickly as possible to ensure the problem can be dealt with at minimum cost. With any blocked drain, if it is left, there is always the possibility of it escalating into a flood. It is therefore important to attend to blocked drains as soon as possible.

Mobile jetting vans:

This is the traditional first line of response for drain unblocking or for drain cleaning. It uses pressures of up to 5000 psi (pounds per square inch) to remove congested contamination which may be causing the drain blockage. All our mobile jetting vans come equipped with CCTV probes in order to help identify issues and locations of blockages and hand held jetting units which can be mobilised to access blockages in remote locations within buildings. Our jetting engineers are fully trained and come with vast experience in being able to assess blockages and offer appropriate solutions.

Combination units

Whilst a mobile jetting van is the traditional first line of response for drain unblocking these units primarily work upon the basis of applying further water to the blockage under pressure to alleviate the issue. However for some blockages, adding this pressurised water is not the right solution and can cause flooding. This type of blockage requires a solution which can both apply pressurised water, but also extract it at the same time thus preventing flooding. Our combination units are specifically designed to deliver exemplary levels of technical performance. Recovering wastes from up to 200 metres, using high pressure jets providing 350 litres per minute, are just two features which demonstrate how these units deliver every single time they are called upon.

At Local Plumbers we are trained and experienced in all kinds of blocked drains and drain jetting, covering all local areas of London & Essex.
