Blocked Toilets Newbury

Blocked toilets and blocked urinals can be the worse type of blockage to incur. If your toilet has become blocked it may be that something has got trapped in the u bend of the toilet. Toilet paper is the most common cause of blockages in your toilet. Stubborn blocked toilets can be difficult to clear without the correct drain clearing tools. Plunging of your toilet can make the blockage worse and you may end up pushing the problem into your soil stack. If your toilet house drain stack becomes blocked then this will require drain jetting to clear the blockage. We have the correct drain unblocking equipment to clear these types of blockages. Blocked toilets unblocked fast.

Blocked Urinals Newbury

Blocked urinals will normally be blocked with scale, this occurs when urine dries and builds up in the drain pipework and reduces the internal diameter of the drain, common cause of this drain scale is lack of fresh running water, its worth check the water to the urinals. Unblocking and drain clearance can be achieved bu means of a drain milling machine, the drain machine is place into the scaled up pipework and rotates within the pipe, de scale cutters rotate and remove the build up of scale. The pipework would then be flushed out to restore it to a free flowing drain

Blocked Sinks Newbury

Blocked sinks are a common domestic internal drain blockage, blocked sink in your kitchen can be caused by many different items. Grease and fat are common problems when it comes to blocked sinks. This can also lead to a blocked drain outside your kitchen window, known as a blocked gully drain. Blocked u bend or blocked trap can cause you problems too, when you have a blocked kitchen drain this can cause issues such as your dishwasher and washing machine to not drain correctly. Internal blocked pipes will usually need to be unblocked using specialist drain clearing equipment, please feel free to GET IN TOUCH if you require and help with this type of drain blockage.

Blocked Drains Outside

Blocked drain outside, blocked drain chamber, blocked man hole and blocked drains. Blocked external drains can become clogged with many different items, the most common cause of external blocked drains is wet wipes, these will catch on any minor drain defects and cause local flooding out of raw sewage. Other blocked drain causes can be from pitch fibre drains, the pitch fibre tends to break down over many years causing a deformed shaped drain and internal drain blistering. The resolve for this is to clear the blockage and investigate the drain problem with a drain survey. Pitch fibre drains can be re rounded and the drain lined to restore them back to the original internal diameter.

Tackling drainage issues, without a flood of follow up problems

Blocked or badly working drains can present a “sticky situation”, but also a very smelly one too! 

Having waste and dirty water that’s not clearing properly from a building can also bring serious health and hygiene concerns. Especially in a home with young children, a care facility for the elderly or a business in which food is served.

This can leave you urgently asking: “Is there a drain company near me?”.

How to know your drain is blocked

Not all drain blockages appear suddenly and dramatically. You can become aware of an issue over a longer period of time. For example, you may notice that your sink, bath or washing machine are slow to drain, or wastewater seems to “bubble” back up. Or, you could start to experience bad smells coming from external pipework (and inspection hatches) leading to your toilet. Are gullies and overflow pipes constantly dripping or even running with water?

When it rains heavily, the additional water going into your exterior waste pipes from your property gutters could highlight the issue. You could even find yourself with inches of foul “backwash” settling outside your home or workplace.

What to do about a blocked drain

Whether you need emergency help with drains, or you want to check if you do have a blockage, you still need to proceed with care. There are products and tools you can use to unblock sinks yourself, for example, but some are too harsh and can inflict lasting damage. Some are totally useless!

There are also many companies and individuals around who offer to deal with blocked drains. It is important to find the right one, rather than simply the cheapest. Drains can be tricky, and the variety of layouts and types of blockages make it important to get a company with the right expertise and equipment – and who offer a fair price for the work involved.

What to look for from a drain clearance company

One dubious practice from some less than honest drain clearance firms is to offer what appears to be a low price for their services. Once underway, with equipment on the premises, they “find” the task is more complex than first thought, and the final price goes up steeply!

That is why the first thing to look for is a reassuring level of testing and assessment. The company should be able to take information from you and put camera equipment into the waste system, to get a clear “picture” of the problem.

From that, they can provide feedback on how large the task is; from a simple blocked waste pipe in your kitchen sink, to major structural issues in your mains waste system. A credible and honest drain clearance company will even tell you if the problem lies off your property, and out of your individual responsibility. This enables you to contact your local water and waste management provider to address the issue.

Competent and well-trained companies will work to remove the blockage without causing any residual damage too. For example, if a contractor forces pressurised water through your drains inappropriately and unnecessarily, it could cause fractures. These then leak waste substances into your soil or the fabric of your building!


This all means that when you are “looking into drains” you need a company that is reliable and readily available, affordable but also experienced and well equipped.
