An example of hydro-vac excavtion. This high pressure gas main was suspected to be leaking. After setting up traffic control and emergency procedures it was carefully located by potholing. Following this the entire tee section and pipes were exposed for an easy and safe repair.

Flood Prevention

An example of some larger scale specialised plumbing. We constructed a pump well with inlet weir and grating, with two large pumps on guide rails. In flooding situations the large influx of storm water could then be pumped outside the levee banks. See more on the portfolio gallery.......

STP and Distribution

Sewer from three homes and School amenities at an Outback School was run through 3 small Sewer Treatment Plants to this distribution well. What was once a dust bowl is now a green, grassed play oval of approx 30 x 50 metres.

Drain Repair

No relining this time. After CCTV inspection and diagnosis small sections of drains were replaced and sewer junctions with large diameter access risers were installed as a safer alternative to using access manholes.

Various Methods



Water Jetter

drain_clearing_liveRenopipe has small high pressure water jetters for domestic drains and a large tandem trailer mounted jetter for clearing larger drains.

Take a look at the animation to the right of this text to see a sewer full of roots being cleared by high pressure water jetter. You will see how effective the high pressure water jetters are.

Below are my large jetter (46l/min@33,600 kpa) and truck mounted smaller jetter (30l/min@28000kpai)


Foaming Root Control



Rootx creates a powerful root killing foam on contact with water

When Rootx is applied to your drains it fills the drains, seeps through the cracks and kills the roots. The advantage of this method is that it is very cost effective compared to other methods and kills off the roots wrapped around the outside of the drain and not just inside the drain.


Safe Simple Effective Solution to roots in drain pipes.

Reaches to the top of pipe where 90% of roots enter.

Especially effective as a yearly treatment.


Drain will not block due to live root intrusion for a period of 12 months.

Kinetic Ram



The Kinetic Ram uses a burst of compressed air, which stricks the column of water in a clogged pipe. The resulting shock wave, called Kinetic Energy, hits the stoppage at a speed of approximately 1,400 metres per second quickly clearing the blockage.

Blow creates kinetic shockwave


Breaks out the bottom of the bottle, not the sides


The same affect as hitting a cold chisel with a large hammer to break concrete.

The water is the chisel as you cannot compress water and the blockage is the concrete.
