Hydro-Jet Drain Cleaning:
Hydro-Jetting consists of a petrol-driven machine that pressurizes the water to a 5000 psi hose. A specialized nozzle is connected to the water hose, producing a powerful stream that clears the drain.
Here are the signals that you are facing a blockage in the main sewer drain and you need a Hydro-Jetter drain clean:
Multiple Bathroom Fixtures Are Clogged:
The unmistakable signal that a sewer drain is clogged is when more than one plumbing fixture backs up simultaneously. Toilets are usually the first to experience problems, but other low-level bathroom fixtures can also become involved, such as the shower and bathtub on the lower floors of your home. If you believe that you have a drain blockage, check the toilet, followed by bathroom fixtures.
Unusual Plumbing Behaviour:
Check for unusual sounds or behaviour at your plumbing fixtures, starting at the lowest floor level in the building. The main sewer drains usually become blocked somewhere between the house and the street connection into the main, and because wastewater rises at the blockage, the lowest bathroom fixtures are the first to back up.
Toilets have the most direct path to the main drain, the largest diameter pipe of all plumbing fixtures; when a blockage forms in a drain, gurgling and glugging sounds will often appear at the toilet first, then followed by water rising in the bowl. A kitchen sink, laundry tub, or washing machine drain will also gurgle and glug when a blockage forms, a telltale sign of the main sewer drain problem.

Bath Tub and Shower:
Other pipes affected by the main drain blockage are those drains connected to the Bath Tub and shower; because they sit lower than sink drains. Investigate to see whether the tub and bath drains are blocked. Showers and baths may also fill with wastewater when using higher-level fixtures if there's a significant backup.
Another blocked drain tell-tail sign to look for is trapped air in the plumbing system. If you run water into the kitchen sink—especially when the sink is close to a toilet—you may hear the gurgling and glugging and see the water level in the toilet rise.
Another sign of a drain blockage can happen when you use the washing machine. When the water in the washing machine drains and causes the toilet to back up, it's a good sign the sewer drain is clogged. If the toilet is still flushing fine while this occurs, the problem is likely due to a blockage before the toilet waste enters the main drain line.
We can use specialised video cameras to determine what's disrupting your drainage system, taking a good look inside your drains.

King Plumbing has access to the latest blocked drain technology, which allows us to fix problems other general maintenance plumbers can’t.
A traditional ‘electric eel’ drain machine sends large metal cables down drains to cut through blockages; a Hydrojet sewer machine uses high-pressure jets of water to cut through and remove accumulated debris tree roots, fats and grease.
Drain cleaning in Hobart is a critical part of keeping your home's drainage system in good condition. However, sometimes drains are not in clear view, behind walls and beneath floors, they are not given much thought until a problem occurs. If you don’t have your house drains cleaned regularly, it can lead to the following problems:
- Bad odor coming up through fixture drain outlets
- Drain blockages
- Slow draining of plumbing fixtures
- Backed up overflowing drains
- Rodents and insects that are attracted to the wastewater
An organic buildup of accumulated hair, soap scum and other insoluble debris can block up drains and cause overflows.
