Toilet Unblocking – Blocked Toilet Drain.
Toys, toilet scent cages or a mobile phone can accidentally end up being flushed down the toilet causing a toilet to block.
We recommended as soon as it is noticed that the toilet is blocked action needs to be taken in order to prevent bigger blockage building up and damage to the surrounding area from overflowing waste in the bathroom.
While on site we can also fix broken toilets, perform toilet valve and toilet cistern repairs, water tanks, burst pipes and all emergency plumbing and drainage work.
Blocked Shower Drain
The most common reason for a blocked shower drain is hair or soap, we always recommend that you try and remove any hair from the plug hole as this may work and save you some money in calling a drainage engineer out. However don't use harsh chemicals to attempt to clear the blockage as this may do more damage to your pipe work.
Never try and push a stick down the drain as this may cause damage to your pipework and will only move the obstruction further down the drain pipe.
If after attempting to clear the blockage yourself but had no joy, then its time to call in the professional, we have all the necessary equipment from internal mini jetters to electromechanical drain snakes that will not just clear the blockage but will also clean the lining of your drain pipes as it goes. This helps remove built up scale and can help reduce smells from the shower drain.
Blocked Bathroom Sink
If your bathroom sink is not draining the water away or it is doing so but slowly, then you are likely to have some type of obstruction either in the basin drain, the U-bend / trap or further down the drainage pipe.
Blocked bathrooms sinks suffer the same common obstructions as do showers and baths however from time to time we find cotton buds lodged in the u-bend, sometimes we find cigarette butts stuck in the drain and very occasionally we find the odd missing wedding ring that has gone down the plug hole.
If you follow the simple steps explained in the section above but find you have had no joy, don't worry on of our experienced professional drainage engineers will be on hand to solve your problem. We even carry on board a mini camera that can go into the pipe work to locate problems or even find that missing ring.
Is your bath not draining the water away or it is doing so but slowly, then you are likely to have some type of obstruction either in the bath drain, the U-bend / trap or further down the drainage pipe.
As with blocked baths, they suffer the same types of blockage as do blocked showers and blocked bathroom sinks and the stems to remedy the problem is much the same, the biggest issue with sorting out a blocked bath is access to the bath trap under the bath. Unless you have competent plumbing skills it is best to leave the clearing of a blockage from a bath trap to an experienced person as getting this wrong can lead to all sorts of costly problems. If the seal are not correctly aligned and tightened correctly and when the bath empties you are likely to have a major flood on your hands as all the bath water escapes though the leaking joint and over the floor and though the ceiling causing hundreds of pounds of damage.
