Before copper and plastic piping became more commonly used, water and gas service pipes were often installed with galvanised steel pipe.
The need to replace old galvanised steel pipes is quite common, with the increasing age of these piping systems, rust becomes a factor and can completely destroy sections of pipework.
In most cases, a blocked drain is able to be un-blocked using a high powered water jetter. In some situations old pipes can become broken or collapsed, usually due to tree roots getting inside the pipe and completely blocking it and sometimes physically breaking it. In these cases damaged pipes need to be located, excavated and replaced. Depending on the conditions of the drain, sometimes a complete pipe replacement is necessary for a permanent solution. To check the condition of a problem drain, a cctv drain camera is used, then a decision can be made on future works, if needed.
