Pearla has a fully equipped maintenance truck designed solely for the clearing of Storm water and Sewerage pipes. We use a machine that simply ‘blasts’ the blockage using a high powered jet stream of water (5000psi).
We have from experience learnt that electric eels will in some cases cause more damage to the pipe than the blockage – especially in old’ earthenware’ pipes.
In most cases we find blockages are easily taken care of – whether it be a lack of maintenance or root infestation the JETTA will cut through 80% of blockages. In those instances where the pipe is dislodged, broken we can send down the camera to see what we are up against. Usually we can give you a very good indication what we are looking at underground fairly quickly.
