Clearing Blocked Drains and Sewers

Drain blockages are a very common, but very distressing event. Drains are designed to take the waste water from your sinks, bath, showers and toilets along with human waste and toilet tissue. Any other items should be disposed of in the bin. Most people are led to believe that baby/wet wipes, sanitary products and hand towels can also be dispose of down the loo, but this is simply not true. By flushing these items even though they are usually marked as disposable or bio-degradable adds to the epidemic of blocked drains. One of the other main caused of blocked drains is the disposal of fat, oil and food residue which will solidify and completely blocked the waste pipes. In short:

  • Use the basis of unless its toilet paper, bag it and bin it
  • Wipe off greasy plates before washing
  • Let leftover cooking fat to cool and congeal before disposing of it in the bin
  • Any left-over medication should be returned to the Pharmacist NOT emptied into the drainage system
  • Use a plug strainer to stop unwanted waster entering the system

If you experience any of the following;

  • Bad smells emanating from waste pipes
