Blocked drains can be a real nightmare. Even a small problem can build up quickly into a major issue if it’s not dealt with quickly and efficiently. Often the first we know of a blocked drain will be flooding in our home or just outside the property. When water or sewage is flooding your property you need it dealt with as quickly as possible, and you need it done properly.

Why do my drains keep getting blocked?

Often when a drain is blocked we use DIY products and think we’ve dislodged the blockage, but then it comes back within a few weeks – or even a few days. This is because the blockage was not completely cleared. The problem is that parts of the original blockage remain around the edges of the pipes, and as debris such as grease, food particles and hair are flushed down the drain they become stuck to the original blockage. This soon creates a complete blockage again.

If a blockage is cleared properly the first time there is nothing left in the pipe for debris to get caught on so the blockage will not recur.

Sometimes a blockage is caused by tree roots which have infiltrated the pipe. When this happens, bits of debris will collect around the tree root. DIY or chemical solutions may remove parts of the blockage but without removing the tree root, it will continue to become blocked. If you have a recurring blockage we can perform a CCTV drain survey to investigate what might be causing this.

How can I get my drains unblocked?

To ensure your drain is unblocked properly the first time, it’s best to call in the experts. We have years of experience in dealing with blocked drains, and will be happy to help. We use high pressure water jets to flush out any blockages and in most cases this can resolve the issue for you. Our local drainage experts can be with you quickly to help get your drains flowing freely again.

Who is responsible for blocked drains?

The drains within the boundary of your property are your responsibility – so if they become blocked, it is down to you to get them unblocked. This can be daunting, considering that most people don’t really know much about the network of pipes running below and around their property. It can be hard to figure out where a blockage might be or what might be causing it without expert help. The good news is that BlockBusters is always here to help.
