Blocked drains can be caused by all sorts of nasty things building up and catching on joints or collecting anywhere the flow is interrupted. While rods are the traditional means of shifting the blockage and even cleaning the debris from the drain walls, this is often not enough. Even more often it will not remove the drain blockage entirely, which means the problem will come back.
Why is my drain blocked?
Drains can become blocked for a range of reasons and finding the cause may help prevent issues in the future.
Some of the common causes include:
- Tree roots
- Abuse from items purged down toilets, such as wet wipes and sanitary items
- Greases, oils and fats
- Broken or defective pipes
At Advance Drain Services we have a vast array of specialist devices, together with technical capability, to solve and clear blocked pipes, whether it be from sinks, showers, gullys, manholes etc.
We assess the problem and decide upon the most suitable method/technique to carry out the required works. Whether it's using HPWJ (High Pressure Water Jetting), rodding or the use of mechanical equipment, we will be able to advise on the best course of action.
- Do you have bad smells coming from your drains or sink?
- Is your sink slow to drain ?
- Do you think your drain may have collapsed ?
- Do you hear a gurgling sound from the waste inlets or toilet ?
Attempting to carry out remedial works yourself can be very difficult, especially if you do not know the cause of the issue. Don't risk leaving it and potentially causing an even bigger issue.
If you are experiencing any of the above, you may need our help!
