Why are the drains blocked?

In addition to helping us fix the problem, fully understanding the cause of the blockage can also help us prevent it from recurring. We don’t just provide immediate solutions, we also provide drain unblocking solutions that guarantee long-term drain health. As well as unblocking your drain, our local drain unblockers will advise you on how to prevent the same problem from occurring in the future.

There are so many reasons why drainage systems become blocked and then require drain clearance. Flow Drains has seen it all – from the household waste build-up to the most unusual objects obstructing pipes! 

Blocked-Drain-Before

The most common reasons for blocked drains

Getting your drains cleaned is a good idea if they are running slowly. This will prevent them from becoming fully blocked. Regardless of the type of drain clearance you need, our engineers can unblock your drains, regardless of their condition:

Mineral content

Blockages are more common in areas with hard water, such as London, because of mineral content (scale). The buildup of mineral deposits over time can narrow pipes and cause blocked drains.

Household goods

A wet wipe, as well as sanitary products such as tampons or pads, is a common cause of blockages. Cotton buds and cotton pads are also frequently flushed down the toilet. The breakdown of any man-made product in water can be slowed down with the right ingredients.

Toilets can become clogged when kitchen paper or tissues are flushed down them. The paper used in toilets is specially designed to dissolve fast in the water.

Fats, Oils and Grease

Grease and fats, even in small quantities, can harden when they’re rinsing down the kitchen sink. Drains around apartment blocks and house conversions are commonly found with these types of build-ups. Due to multiple homes sharing the same drain system, there is additional volume produced.

Multi-residential drains cannot handle the additional load.

Garden waste

Garden waste and litter can clog external drains. Among the debris that can enter are leaves, twigs, silt, stones, plastic bags, and other rubbish. Rainwater often traps this debris.

When it comes to the most common drainage issues, we can often resolve them with a drain cleaning service, and if it is more serious, we have the expertise to handle it.

Each of our engineers is equipped with a range of machine tools and equipment for unblocking drains.

High-pressure drain jetting equipment

Materials that cause a blockage can be broken up by these machines. This equipment is only suitable for external (secondary) pipework due to its power. A property’s primary pipework is vulnerable to damage because of this.

Electro-mechanical Sani snakes

With these machines, our engineers can insert a rotating, flexible cable into pipework using electric motors. With different attachments, they can push any kind of blockage through, including deposits of fat and scale. Designed for clearing internal primary drainage pipes, these products are portable and easy to use.

Drain rodding

External and secondary (internal) pipework can still be unblocked by the more traditional rods. The rods are connected together with rod sections of the same strength and flexibility and pushed into the drains by hand. Depending on the type of obstruction that needs to be cleared, different attachments can be used on the end.

Coring machines (drills)

It is necessary to use a more powerful machine for unblocking stubborn jobs, such as removing scale build-up. Blockages can be removed from pipes up to 150mm in diameter using a coring machine. It removes the blockage from the drain so that it can flow freely again.

Cameras for drain survey

A CCTV camera can be used if it proves difficult to determine the cause or location of a blocked drain. By using this equipment, a drainage network defect that could be causing the blockage will be identified. Branches growing through a fractured pipe are an example of tree roots breaking the pipe.

In addition to showing customers that their blockages have been properly removed, cameras are also used to demonstrate that.
