Electric Eel

What is an Electric Eel?

While it might sound like something you’d find at the bottom of a dark pond, The Electric Eel is a great little tool that we sometimes use to free up blocked drains around Melbourne. The Electric Eel unblocks drains and sewers with its cables that spin around inside the drain and rub against the pipe – similar to the motion of an eel. Over time and due to its heavy duty workload, these cable sections and cutters are vulnerable to breakages. It is for this reason that we always implement best practice protocol and replace the cables and cutters of our Electric Eels on a regular basis. This assists us in preventing breakages when the Eel is in use, which can potentially lead to costly excavations.
