Drain Unblocking & Cleaning
Our drainage team will always come prepared with a variety of specialist tooling to deal with any type of blockage they are presented with.
This Makes light work of your drainage problems whilst keeping the cost down to a minimum.
Limescale build up is a very common problem especially in hard water areas. This can be quickly fixed with the use of mechanical or water jetting equipment from either the toilet pan, connecting stack or drain line. Then kept maintained by the use of a general de-scaler from any supermarket.
Scale build up occurs due to hard water. The scale starts as a stain or residue in the toilet bowl and connecting pipework then gradually builds to form a jagged crust in the connecting drain pipes. This is then prone to tissue paper getting stuck, building up and the toilet bowl beginning to slow down when you flush.
As a general rule Foul Drains should only be taking waste water, human faeces and tissue.
Although some products are advertised as flushable they either do not dissolve or take a long time doing so. These blockages need to be Flushed with High Pressure Jetting equipment as they latch on to the joints between Drain sections and if not removed cause smells, re occurring blockages and attract rodents.
Flushed Foreign objects such as a child’s toy or a plastic toilet freshener can cause further issues downstream. We have the specialised tools to help.
If more than one toilet is blocked it is usually because they are back to back on the same waste or the drains are blocked further downstream and need cleaning from an access point or manhole.
A Faulty cistern can also cause a Blocked Toilet by restricting the flush into the toilet bowl. This is normally due to a split diaphragm in the syphon unit or a faulty washer inside the inlet valve for the toilet cisterns supply. Both are an easy fix for a plumber.
Blockages in waste soil stack pipes are usually due to scale build up in the resting bend at the base of the stack itself or at joints of other connecting waste pipes.
Foreign objects that have been flushed and snagged in the pipework or faults in the stack due to material wear and tear are also very common. Ie- Corroded cast iron or a broken clay joint connection to the Drain line below.
If you are getting Drain smells, rodent problems or have overflowing Blocked Drains then our services are more than likely needed.
