Jet Cleaning & Root Cutting

Rangedale provides expert and efficient root clearing and cutting services all around Melbourne.
We have a large fleet of drain cleaning units which can be used for both low and high pressure cleaning work of up to 3000 PSI.

All Rangedale units feature large-volume water storage tanks, and also carry stand pipes for easy connection to hydrants for street water supplies. These water-jetting units are fitted with the latest rotating water-jet cutting heads which remove deposits such as grease, sand, silt and roots.

Each unit carries a minimum of 260m of ¾” hose, a wide range of jet nozzles, bombs and cleaning heads.

Water Routine Cleaning

Our high velocity jetting vehicles are on hand for clearing blockages, general cleaning or root cutting of sewers, storm water drains and pits of up to 240m in length and 1500mm in diameter.

We also provide professional chemical root foaming and manhole inspections.


CCTV Inspection of Trunk Sewers

The accurate inspection and condition assessment of large diameter sanitary sewers is becoming more and more important.

Our sewer inspection technology is capable of performing detailed inspections in large diameter sewers with various flow conditions. We are able to locate serious defects such as cracks, infiltration, deformations and intrusions.

The “one set up” capability of our system allows our camera to inspect lengths of up to 3km from one location, thereby reducing the number of setups required. This saves time and money as well as minimising disruptions in congested areas.

Our CCTV Unit

A Hino 4×4 500 series truck has been specially fitted out to house a long range CCTV unit which includes: a control unit, recording devices (including a back up system) and three phase electric winches and fibre optic rotary joints. The truck includes:

  • Up to 3km of fibre optic cable used to transfer the digital signal back to the control unit for recording,

  • A power supply for lights and camera operation housed within the float system unit,

  • A CCTV camera mounted on a floating device with four LED lights for illumination in the pipe,

  • Two trailers with hydraulic drums complete the unit. They contain up to 3,000 metres of 6mm rope to control the direction and speed of the survey.
