penetrate here we're off to a blocked that's 
right we've got to block stormwater to go too when   i was chatting to this lady she said something 
about her stormwater is blocked up under a patio   and i think they can pull the pipe 
apart or they can see some debris   and they've had a go themselves they 
think they know the area it's in   but they can't seem to get it cleared so they 
want someone to come out and have a look and   see if they can get through it or find the 
problem so that not to do moving forward so let's go check it out see what's going on right oh i'll see you when i go so i've cut a temporary access in here 
which i'll seal up uh when this is raining   uh it's overflowing from those gutters 
they said the gutters are clear but um   i've asked them just to check that they are clear   if it's still overflowing it could be a 
design issue then because from here to the   street is all clear no blockage next problem 
is this area under here where this grate is are flooding so it used to work 
they think it used to work but in   some of the big rain we've had recently it 
hasn't worked and it's filled up going over   that lip there and under the house i put the 
camera down here and it goes like three meters blocked a couple of toads there's one 
another one jumped back under there there's a couple of toads under here i've told 
them to get out of that pipe too so it's up to   them now it's their decision they've been worn 
the jet is coming so it goes around three meters   which would be somewhere around here um and i 
can't get past because it is completely blocked   so the jet is set up to have a go at clearing 
that because i'm not sure where it goes to so there's two points at the street here 
that i've put the camera up we have the toad   on security pedestrian watch and the traffic 
control officer is over here the bin truck's just   been down empty in bins so we do have to watch out 
for heavy vehicle traffic in this area but now i   put the camera up here and where that pink paint 
is the pipe is actually squashed uh i was lucky   to get the camera head through i didn't even know 
it just slipped up the outside of it and i got up   to where that gate area is and then it stopped 
it looks like there's a junction around there   um i can't kind of work out what is going on 
but maybe that great links up to it i don't know   but that is definitely squash because when i was 
pulling it back the camera had got stuck and i was   lucky to get it out that will 
need to be dug up and repaired   the other point where i went down to down pipes 
from the roof area that came out here okay   so definitely all good all the way 
around so let's fire up the jetta and see if we can clear that aggie line 
coming from that grate or see where it's   going on this is the size of it okay it's 50 ml 
aggie like this and look how soft it's just soft   it could be squashed it could be fuller full 
of stuff it might not be cleared it could be   going nowhere sometimes they just run those things 
into the ground and it's all good until it's not   you know it works for a while and all of a 
sudden it blocks up and it's done and you   need to come up with a better way of draining 
the water out of there okay let's fire this up so little penetrating nozzle so 
it's got one jet at the front   but two larger jets at the back so 
it pumps out a lot a lot of pressure okay there's a toad there he better get out   you can see him just lurking 
there i'll try and scoop him out i think there's two of them not that will come out once that water is turned on there he is there's one easy out of there let's see what the other 
one does if it decides to leave or stay uh where's your olive one you excited hmm foreign yes a few pegs okay filling up a little bit let's see what this water does 
i'm going to go to the front   and see if i can see any coming out anywhere do not see any so ah so so so oh all oh okay uh bit of stuff so you can see this grate has got a 
lot of backfall in it that's what's holding water   what happens water will fill up reach its 
own level and then go out that pipe but that   pipe where it exits needs to be clear and 
draining i have one more go at the jetter and then i'll put the camera down and 
just see where it is located in the yard um so the water's not coming back that's a good sign haha right here uh-huh i hit it let's go turn it off the metal now it's filling up because 
it can't get away quick enough right let's grab a shovel and do some excavation see what's going on yeah so i've walked past the spot i've got 
to dig but i wanted to have a chat to you   so another has been out here and given 
them a quote to do this work it was to put a   french in the other side of that brick wall 
and then rip up this concrete set up a new grate   and have it all correctly falling with 
new concrete and great and drainage sit down when i tell you the price 
he quoted seventy thousand dollars you can do a lot for 70 000.   let's see if i can at least get this flowing and 
working for him for a lot less we need to dig here see what's going on here what is going on what have they done   little contraption have they come up 
with so here's the end of the pipe right here uh uh foreign there we are uh this is why i call them stormwater investigations okay goes right there okay what i might do is put the camera back 
down where i'd drill through that pipe it would be best if this went to an open 
drain somewhere let me think for a second okay i'm gonna have a chat to the customer and hello what i think all danny for the time being so i explained to the 
customer so she could see that the great holding   water it's clearly got like backfall in it so 
it'll have to hold a certain amount of water   before it would exit out of that pipe and 
i'd get pretty close to the top i reckon   it's at least halfway at the moment before 
it'd start discharging and going down that pot   but we've done all we can do so the pipe comes out 
through here down and around we found it down here so i gave her a recommendation dig a trench and either link it up to the other pipe that 
runs through the street or link it up to this one   that runs to the street because that's got to be 
dug up and repaired also because it's squashed   so somehow i snuck up past that 
squashed section of pipe and got   all the way up but look how bad that is 
so i got stuck coming back it's free now i think that's only picking up that down pipe i'm 
not quite sure i'm not i wasn't able to look into   it a bit more but that is an option either one 
of those and then just let it run to the street   um if it then has a problem and can't handle 
the the volume of water you'd then have to take   it's it with its own pipe all the way to the 
street so since the other quoted a 70 000   to concrete french drain and put in a new grate 
and pipe i think i'm going to quote her 20 000   to leave all that where it is no french 
drain and just run a pipe from there to   the street i think that's reasonable if 
he's quoting 70 i think i can quote 20.   we'll leave it at that only jake and i'm 
not quoting at 20.
