Types of Blockages

blocked basin sink

Blocked basin sinks

Bathroom sinks quite frequently block. This can be caused by soap scum or hair from shaving. These are generally simple to clear and can be done so by using a plunger, alternatively the plug and wastes or trap may need cleaning out. If this fails we can send the hand auger down the waste pipe to try and clear or retrieve anything that may be stuck in the waste pipe. You can try keeping the drain clean by adding a drain cleaner such as draino or there are even home remedies you can make yourself using baking soda and vinegar, combine a cup of vinegar with 1/2 cup of baking soda, pour down the drain and watch the chemical reaction take place!


Bathtub drains and showers again are usually caused by hair and soap scum, if you have a 100mm grate in your shower you can reach down and collect any excess hair from the trap, you may also be able to plunge way the old shower scum using a rodding plunger which is not the typical plunger you would use on a sink, these have a flat 100mm rubber disk at the end and can be pushed down the drain to help push through any debris.  Again you can use chemicals in a shower drain just make sure that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions and take required safety precautions.

plunging a blocked toilet

Blocked toilet drains

Blocked toilets can happen at the most inconvenient times, and we need them functioning correctly as soon as possible!! Some causes of blocked toilets can be due to reasons such as using excess toilet paper, flushing sanitary items down the drain, using paper towels (they don’t break up like toilet paper), flushing wipes or even “flushable” wipes, we’ve even pulled out sanitisers out of the toilet after they have fallen from the side. Of course there can be more serious issues such as tree roots or dislodged pipes. Either way we can have your toilet running again the same day.

blocked kitchen sink

blocked kitchen sinks

Kitchen sinks. Kitchen sink blockages are again unique. We won’t usually find lindt or hair down a kitchen sink drain, but we do indeed find something else. Yes you guessed it! Grease and fats. Grease and fat build ups are caused when rinsing your dishes, and pots and pans, usually when these have been rinsed using cold water. As the grease and fats cool down in the drainage system they solidify, this can occur with in the kitchen trap or overflow relief gully if the kitchen is charging it. This can result in what us plumbers call fat bergs, big build ups of fat and grease that look like icebergs in your drain!! These usually have to be cleared with the drain snake or hydro jetter as the fat then needs to be broken down. A way to prevent this from happening is by ensuring the dishes are rinsed and cleaned with hot water, and keep the tap running a few seconds after rinsing.

blocked drain laundry

blocked laundry tubs

Laundry tub drains can sometimes block from all the lint that finds its way out of your washing machine into the tub, you may be able to take the 50mm trap under your tub apart by unscrewing the trap assembly, or by simply plunging your sink. If you have any concerns about your laundry drain we recommend that this gets attended to sooner rather than later as there would be nothing worse than putting a load of washing on, the drain been blocked causing all the water dumped by the machine to flood throughout your house!!
