JMB Drain Cleaning Exposes Truth Behind Longstanding PVC Pipe & Tree Root Myth
May 27, 2014
JMB Drain Cleaning, the local drain cleaner for Melbourne’s northern suburbs, reveals the truth regarding PVC pipes and the tree root myth. This family run business has been unblocking Melbourne drains for over 25 years and wants its customers to know the absolute truth.
The truth behind the longstanding PVC pipe and tree root myth, which supports that tree roots do not penetrate PVC pipes, is finally exposed. JMB Drain Cleaning, an established family run business, knows the truth and shares it with its customers: tree roots can penetrate PVC pipes.
This incidence is most likely to occur when the pipe gets broken; or when old sewers leak and tree roots penetrate the pipes looking for water. In cases like this, JMB Drain Cleaning's experts can help with the very latest non-destructive digging equipment. As John Bourke, Director of JMB Drain Cleaning, explains "We can excavate soil above and around underground services and obstacles without harming the surrounding area. Also known as hydro excavation, this method uses water and a vacuum to break up soil and clay, and remove the waste."
In cases of serious drain blockages, full dig out services are offered; especially when replacement of sewer or stormwater pipes is required (usually caused by tree roots, ground movement or ageing pipes.) The procedure, as analysed by Mr. Bourke, is the following: "First of all, we’ll analyse the site with state of the art detection equipment and we’ll recommend a dig out if our sewer machine or high pressure water jet can’t penetrate the pipe to clear the blockage. If necessary we use a powered machine, depending on the depth, access and location to the pipes."
For all blocked sewer pipe repairs, JMB Drain Cleaning experts use unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (UPVC) piping for extra strength and longevity. And they offer a guarantee as a highly skilled, experienced and focused team providing the highest levels of customer service. Use of the latest equipment ensures that the client will benefit from the best possible job at competitive rates. Equally important is that the customer's site is left how JMB staff found it: with no debris or mess are left behind. This family owned and operated company provides a 24 hour 7 days a week emergency service to the metropolitan area, with an average one-hour response time for emergencies. Free quotes, services provided for domestic and commercial clients with professionalism, efficiency and friendliness characterise JMB Drain Cleaning.
