What is Lateral Drain Cutting?

Lateral drain cutting is a new drainage technique which allows specialist operators to completely clear your drains.

Any warped drain pipes can cause serious issues, including structural concerns. These warped drain pipes can also contribute towards blockages and other issues within your drainage system.

How Does Lateral Drain Cutting Work?


A lateral drain cutter is a piece of equipment with several rotating blades, similar in design to a fan. These pieces of equipment are moved along the length of the drain pipe. The blades will rotate, clearing all kinds of blockages. Thanks to lateral drain cutting, we can even deal with serious blockages including:

  • Tree Root Intrusion.

  • Debris and Unsuitable Waste.

  • Human and Natural Waste.

The power of these blades means they can be used to break apart all kinds of blockages. They also need to be handled by a lateral drain cutting specialist. If used by someone without the correct training, they could cause actual damage to your drainage system.
