Spotting the signs of a blocked drain

  • Smell: the easiest symptom to recognise
  • Sink drainage; water takes longer than usual to drain from your sink
  • Toilet drainage: water rises or overflows after flushing
  • Noises: gurgling sounds from the plughole

Keeping your drains clear

Acting as soon as you notice any of the signs many avoid the horror of a full sewage spill in your property.  Taking extra care with what you put down the drains in the first place is the key to avoiding problems in the future.

Blockages are often caused by a build-up of silt, sewage and general debris. Sometimes it’s a result of household objects shoved down the loo.  You wouldn’t believe the things we find – cutlery, children’s toys, toothbrushes, pets (yes really), money, jewellery – even a gun.  Always remember that fat, oil and grease (FOG) and nappies, wipes and sanitary products should never be flushed.
