Diagnosing a Blocked Drain
Blocked or clogged drains are no fun.
First you get the bad smells and the mysterious damp patches both inside and outside the house. Then water begins to hang around in sinks and bathtubs. And finally, if you’re really unlucky, the drains begin to back up, bringing all sorts of nasty things with them.
Drains can get blocked for several reasons. Household waste such as fat and rubbish can get washed down the sink and cause a blockage.
Exterior drains can fill up with leaves and mud, or other organic matter, and this builds up over time to form a solid block. Root ingress is another common cause. But all kinds of blockages have the same results.
Because many drains are below ground they can be very difficult to access or unblock. That’s where our specialist equipment comes in very handy.
We use modern CCTV technology to identify the cause of the blockage, and then recommend a number of techniques to remove blockages and clean the drains.
We can also carry out drain lining if the existing system is in a bad state of repair.
