Blocked or clogged drains are cleared by using top quality, professional drain cleaning and blocked drain clearing equipment via the drain rodding eyes or drain inspection eyes (IE), and then clearing the blockage in the drain or sewer pipes.
Drains blocked by tree roots can be cleared by inserting drain rodding rods or using an electromechanical drain cleaning machine. This drain clearing equipment will be inserted into the blocked drain at the drain rodding or drain inspection eye (IE). A special head is fitted to this drain cleaning rods or drain cleaning machine in order to cut the tree roots from the blocked drain or blocked sewer line.
The drain cleaning or drain unblocking can also be done by clearing the blockage from the sewer or drain pipes by plunging the drain from the gully. Often it can be the gully that is blocked; this kind of drain blockage is normally cleared by plunging the gully. In certain situations, it might be necessary to replace the gully.
Blocked sinks (zinks) or basins are cleared by plunging or the S-trap or P-trap can be cleaned to rid the kitchen sink (zink) or bathroom basin from any blockage.
Blocked toilets can be cleared by unblocking the toilet sewer pipe. This will be done by using special blocked toilet sewer pipe equipment. This toilet unblocking equipment is the same equipment Drain Brain use to clear normal blocked drains or sewers; this is draining rods or electromechanical drain cleaning equipment.
The drain or sewer pipe might be damaged by the tree roots or other material causing the drain to clog or block. This broken or damaged drain pipe can then be replaced. The drain pipe will be replaced with a PVC drain pipe of the highest quality and standard, which is only sourced from reputable drain and plumbing material suppliers. The standard size of a drain or sewer pipe in South Africa for professional plumbing installations is a 110 mm PVC pipe.

Washing machines and dishwashers need to be properly connected to the water inlet as well as the outlet. This is in order to supply water to the washing machine, and to have a safe and proper way to dispose of waste water. If the water supply is not connected there will be no way that the washing machine or dishwasher will operate properly. Therefore it is recommended that the fitting and coupling of dishwashers and washing machines need to be done by a qualified plumber, i.e.: a Drain Brain qualified and experienced professional plumber.
A typical problem experienced with washing machines and dishwashers is when the outflow or draining pipe to which the washing machine and dishwasher connect is blocked. This will cause the waste water to overflow. This blocked drainpipe of the washing machines and dishwashers can be unblocked and cleared of any material causing a blockage by a Drain Brain plumber. A handy tip is to fasten the washing machine or dishwasher outlet pipe to the drain pipe with a cable tie.
It is recommended that a Drain Brain technician or Drain Brain plumber fit a reducer to the machine outlet and the drainpipe. This will limit the possibility of a flooded washing room or kitchen floor.
