Blocked Drains in The Home

Most domestic drains (Drains in the Home) block due to foreign objects being lodged within the drain pipes or a dislodge or dropped pipe which is causing an obstruction.

In most cases we can remove blockages using drain rods with specialist tools attached and should the need arise we use our high pressure water jetting unit which is contained in our drainage van.

How to Unblock a Drain (Sink, Shower, Kitchen sink)

If a drain is blocked the first step is to use a plunger to dislodge the blockage, use firm but careful pressure here because the force of the plunger can shift pipe work, sometimes enough to break the pipe seals causing leaks under the sink.

Given enough time, bleach will dissolve biological blockages such as Fats, Hair & Food Waste. Take care when using bleach and always ware at least a suitable pair of gloves and without being too Health and Safety it is advisable to wear eye protection to avoid splashes in the eye's especially if you intend to use a plunger.

Clear any open drain covers, normally where the kitchen sink drains outside.

Blocked Toilets

A plunger can also be used to unblock toilets in the home. However if the blockage keeps returning for no obvious reason it may be advisable to investigate for possible problems. This could include lifting inspection covers to make sure no sewage is backed up within the drainage system.

How our Drain Jetter Works to Unblock Drains

With pressures up to 3000psi and immense water flow rate of 46 gallons per minute we can direct high pressure jets of water directly onto the blockage.

The sheer force of the water jets has the ability to actually cut through most blockages, the vacuum created by the jetting nozzle in the pipe work pulls back the obstruction whilst cutting it into smaller more manageable pieces.

We can further enhance the cutting power of water using specialist jetting equipment, we have a range of drain cutting nozzles which can cut through a range of material from tree roots to concrete.
