Why is my drain blocked?

A blocked drain is not a normal event for a serviceable system with proper use.. There are many reasons, but the main causes found are typical:

  • Root ingress from trees and shrubs.
  • Broken pipe sections.
  • Misuse or non-compostables like baby wipe and dental products.
  • FOG (Fat, Oil and Grease) buildup from kitchen waste.

Unblocking a drain can be as simple as pushing a set of rods down a pipe, more often high-pressure water jetting (HPWJ) can be used to break up and disperse a soft blockage or a build-up of grease and fat.We always carry the CCTV equipment in the vans, so if there is an underlying problem, for instance, a broken pipe or root ingress, we can if required usually identify the problem immediately and give you the best advice.
