Professional blocked drains service

Drains and pipes can become blocked at any time, be they at your commercial premises or your home.

A blocked drain or sewer is not always your fault. It might be a tree root, excessive rainfall or corrosion that has damaged your underground pipework.

Our experience shows us that in most cases, wipes, grease and fats disposed of in toilets and sinks are the most common cause.


The most common causes for blocked sinks are hair, grease, food waste and toiletries.

How many times have you rinsed the remains of dinner from your dishes, not realising that all those little bits of food are slowly causing a blockage to your pipes and drains?

A sure sign of this is reduced water flow and a bad odour emanating from your sink.

Baths and Showers

The most common cause for blocked bathtubs and showers is hair. When you take baths or showers, the only place for your hair to go is down the drain. Building up over time, it can get stuck to the sides of your pipework.

Reduced drainage and bad odours are a common sign; this has happened to your bath or shower.

Toilets & Urinals

The most common material for blocked toilets is toilet paper. Although items, like disposable nappies and sanitary products, are often flushed down the toilet.

These items will almost certainly cause blockages resulting in an overflowing and blocked pipe, coupled with a bad odour.

A good thing to remember is, what flows down can usually come back up. You may have had previous experience of the unenviable task of trying to unblock a clogged up toilet.

High-Pressure Water Jetting

This is also known as hydro-jetting, and does not refer to the average car power washer; it relates to waterjets that produce about 30 times that pressure.

This technique involves the use of high-pressure water for clearing, cleaning, and removing the toughest blockages that might exist in your pipes and drains. The beauty of high-pressure-water jetting is that it will clear almost any blocked drains and used in about 90 % of all sewer cleaning processes.

Pre-purchase drain Surveys

Known as a Pre-purchase drainage survey. If you are seeking to by a home, this type of review is often not required before the purchase can go ahead.

A pre-purchase survey will detect problems within drains and pipes. These problems can include fractures, leaks, blockages, root intrusions and general collapses when underground. This type of inspection is essential, and it is easy to overlook the importance of our drainage system.

A fault in your drainage system can be expensive to sort out after a purchase goes through.

Moving to a new home can be costly, and the last thing you want is to find out that your underground drainage system is likely to be an expense you hadn't banked on.

We are experts in this field and have the latest equipment and technology needed to carry out a pre-purchase survey for you.

Drain Repairs

There are many different types of repairs needed for drainage systems.

Fractured pipework is quite common most drain systems are over 20 years old and constructed from earthenware. These are prone to crack and damage over time. The loss of water can cause erosion of the surrounding soil and over time can damage your property.

Collapsed pipework can happen when too much pressure is on the top of the drain. Too much pressure or weight is a hazard that can cause the entire draining system to collapse.

Root related drain damage. The sources from trees can easily damage a drainage system. Their roots can grow and find their way into the smallest of cracks in the pipework. Over time as the roots grow and the damage will get worse, resulting in flooding and blocking.

Routine Drain Maintenance

It is so essential to maintain a drainage system regularly. Drains that become blocked or need repairs can cause severe damage to property.

Water can leak into the structures of the house and create the floors and walls to stain or warp.

A property with drains that continually clog is at a much higher risk of flooding during heavy and excessive downpours.

Rodents and roaches are also known to drink blocked drain water, and this can cause even more problems, not just to your health but to eradicate.

Drain Cleaning

Regular cleaning of a drainage system can make faster, more efficient drainage.

Often the most noticeable benefit of having your drains cleaned is that they will drain a lot faster.

Cleaning drains will help prevent leaks, improve the life of your pipes, damage to your home and foul smells.

Root Ingress Removal

Root intrusion is a significant factor in breaking and blocking drains. We use specialist cutters powered by water. This equipment prevents the need to excavate.

CCTV Drain Surveys

A drain survey is an in-depth survey of a drainage system. High-tech CCTV cameras inserted in a drainage system send live feedback to our expert.

Our engineer can see straight away what problems are below ground in your pipework. These surveys help avoid unnecessary cost and excavating to find the problem. Once completed, we can then prepare a survey report for you.
