How To Unclog A Drain

At BlockBusters we like to be able to help our customers find the quickest most cost effective solutions for all drainage problems.

If you have a suspected blocked drain you may be able to locate the blockage by lifting the inspection chamber cover (man hole cover) to find where the problem is. Great care and consideration should be taken when you decide to lift drain covers as these can be very heavy and may require keys to open correctly.

You must never leave an inspection chamber open and unattended as this a Health & Safety risk and could lead to an accident.  If you have your own DIY rods (available from Wickes DIY section etc) you could attempt to clear any blockage but particular care should be taken when attempting this as it easy to lose a rod down a drain which could cause a much more serious blockage.

If you have been unable to clear your clogged drain it is best to call a drainage expert to investigate and quickly clear the blockage.

If you are unable to fix your drain problems or just want some drainage advice please contact us via the form or give us a call on 0800 0689282 today and one of our team will be happy to help.
