Blocked Drains

We charge a fixed price for our work with no call out fee or extras, so you can be sure that no matter how it long it takes you won’t pay any more.  We even provide a guarantee of your money back if we can’t unblock your drain.

The most common way to clear a blocked drain is the use of high pressure jetting when to clear stubborn blockages, to clean pipework of fatty deposits/debris and even tree roots with no risk to your existing pipework.

Digging up the ground or excavating is usually the last resort when trying to clear a blocked drain, however sometimes this is the only way to repair the drain or solve the problem. If a drain has collapsed then excavating is usually the only option, unless diverting the drain would be easier and more cost effective.

When carrying out this type of work we use CCTV equipment to pinpoint the exact location of the blocked drain to ensure that the excavation is being carried out in the correct place with the depth being known before we commence work.  All excavations regardless of the surface ie tarmac, paving slabs, block paving or turf will be put back to the same levels and finishes the job began with.

More and more technology is becoming available on the market, which allows drains to be repaired without having to dig up and disturb the ground. Drain relining is the most common type of no dig technology.

Drain relining consists of impregnating a polyester sleeve with resin and inserting it into the drain covering any cracks, holes, mis-aligned joints entry points for roots even rats. Then using air inversion or water inversion we inflate the sleeve.  The sleeve will harden over a few hours and allow us to remove the inflation hose leaving you with a sealed length of pipework with no joints.  You lose approximately 6mm diameter which will not affect the drain flow but you will gain effectively a new drain run.

Frequently asked questions

What can cause a blocked drain?
  • Build up of hair in shower and bath drains
  • Grease and food build up in sink drains
  • Plants, dirt and natural debris in water drains
  • Toiletries and other foreign objects, from wet wipes to children’s toys
  • Broken pipes within the drainage system
  • Poor water flow from lower than normal water pressure
  • Incorrect pipe installation
  • Unusually heavy wet weather can cause strain on drainage systems
Can I unblock the drain myself?

If you have good knowledge of the drainage system and the necessary equipment, then clearing your own blocked drain or toilet could well be a cheaper and quicker solution.

However, if you are thinking of using a chemical drain cleaner, as well as having limited use, they can be hazardous to your eyes, skin, throat, the pipework and environment.

Drain rods bought from a local DIY shop are not as strong as those used by our drainage engineers and are prone to coming apart in the drain, making your blocked drain ten times worse.

  • Blocked wash basins

What are the signs of a blocked drain?

The most prominent sign to look out for is when your bath, shower or sink is draining slower than usual, this is an early sign that you should really consider getting someone out to look at your drains. The next sign is when the water doesn’t drain at all and is rising when you flush the toilet, run a tap or have a shower.

You may also hear unusual noises when flushing or using the sink, this is also an early warning sign of a blocked pipe as unusual sounds are created when air is trapped inside the pipes by a blockage.

When you have a blocked drain you might also experience an unpleasant smell, this can be due to something which has blocked the drain and is starting to rot. The smell can be detected even before you experience any problems with draining your appliances and is a good early sign that your drains are on the verge of being blocked.

How long does it take to unblock a drain?

This depends on the size and nature of the blockage in your drain.

Our drain engineers will survey your drains before taking appropriate action, and will aim to resolve your problem within an hour – but it could take longer.

What does a Drain CCTV Inspection Look Like?

Our colour CCTV can easily identify where a drain is blocked and more importantly,  how best to fix the problem.

If there is a blockage we may be able to use a rod or high pressure jetting.

If there is a structural problem within the drain, then there are two main options of repairing it. The first is by excavating and the second is by using no-dig technology.
