Q. How long does it normally take to clear a blocked drain?
A. How long is a piece of string?
Clearing a blocked drain can take anywhere from 15 minutes to a number of hours. The time it takes to clear a blocked drain is determined by a combination of a number of factors including but not limited to site conditions, equipment used, the type of service being cleared (sewer, storm water), the type and degree of blockage we are dealing with (tree roots, damaged pipes, grease, toilet paper, foreign object, dirt, sand etc), the design of the drainage network, available access into the drain and the length, size and type of drain (earthenware, clay, PVC, cast iron, copper etc) to be cleared.
Our drain cleaning process

Carry out CCTV camera inspection with home owner to diagnose blockage, inspect condition of pipe work and confirm drain is clear. If pipe work is clean with no tree root intrusions drain cleaning work is finished. Go to step 6.
