Blocked Drain? Get in touch for a fast, reliable service

Blocked drains aren't always caused by silt or fat and sewage.  Often it is household items such as toothbrushes, childs toys or jewellery however the number one cause we come across is wet wipes despite the fact they may flushable on the packet.

 

If the drain in question serves your property exclusively and it falls within your property boundary, then it is your responsibility as a homeowner to unblock any blocked drains around your property. If the drain is shared or beyond your property boundary then it's likely to be the responsibilty of your local water authority.

 

How To Diagnose A Blocked Drain

It's not always easy to diagnose a blocked drain. If you have a suspicion you may have a blockage in your home's drainage system, but you're not 100% sure. Here’s 4 easy signs to look out for.

How to tell that your drain is blocked:

  1. Unpleasant Odours
    – Drain blockages tend to produce foul smelling odours. Often due to food waste, debris slowly decomposes which creates a bad smelling drain.
  2. Slow Drainage
    – If you have a blocked pipe, water will drain slowly. The water has to flow around the blockage, so it will be considerably slower.
  3. Raised Water Levels
    – One of the easiest ways to detect a clogged drain is if you notice any rises in water levels, for example when you flush your toilet.
  4. Gurgling Sounds 
    – If any strange gurgling sounds are heard from drains and plug holes, this could be a sign of a blockage. The gurgling sound indicates that there is trapped air in the drain, and is escaping when you run water.
