Types of Blocked Drains
A clogged toilet would certainly be a problem that would require drain clearing sooner rather than later!! We all need to use the toilet throughout the day, and it would not be a pleasant experience if the toilet bowl was full to the rim!! These blockages can sometimes just be a pan blockage, where too much toilet paper may have been used, paper towels, wipes or sanitary items may have been flushed away. Toilet paper should only ever be flushed away as it has the ability to break down, where as paper towels do not break down as easily, wipes and sanitary items are not designed to be flushed away. Another cause could of course be if there was a broken pipe or dislodgement in the fittings, or if the drain pipe has started sagging in certain areas. In that case we can find the problem using our drain camera, locate it and quote to repair. We can clear these blockages either by plunging the toilet pan itself, or locating a drain opening enabling us to clear drains using our specialist equipment.
Blocked Stormwater Drains
Blocked Basin Sink
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 the drain 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!
Clogged Shower Drain
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.
