Our team is equipped to unblock any drain:

Equipped with the latest technology including electromechanical snakes as well as flexible drainage inspection tools. Different attachments that can allow us to very quickly remove unwanted blockages as well as advanced imaging solutions that can inspect your pipes and make sure that the blockages appropriately cleared. Our portable tools can reach up to 20 m down your pipes and we can clear out blockages that you would not typically be able to remove with over-the-counter tools.

We are a team that is equipped to handle any blockages. We first find the blockage and then remove it using our speciality tools. If you are facing a blockage which is far too difficult to break down using regular methods, we have drainage engineers that are well equipped with the right specialist machines and tools for clearing even the toughest blockage in your drain pipework.

We don’t charge for extras like the cost of parking, fuel and travel time or congestion charges. You’ll be getting access to highly vetted and experienced trades people and they’ll be available 24 hours a day. The only extras that you might expect on your quote are for ultra low emission zone charges, the collection of parts and materials associated with your blockage as well as the cost of parts and materials used for replacement costs.

Some of the common causes of a blocked, sink, shower or kitchen drain include:

  • Hair and debris
  • Tissues or paper
  • Cotton Buds, dental floss
  • Food waste
  • Drinking straws
  • Collected fats and oils from cooking

If your drain problem is specifically in the shower, our shower unblocking service can be one of the easiest ways that you can get your bathroom area back up and running again. Using a speciality approach for handling blocked baths and showers. First we start with the manual method and then shift to mechanical unblocking techniques to make sure that the problem can be cleared out completely. We include just one service cost to make sure that your blocked bath or shower can be completely cleared. This clear no charging policy ensures that the quote we provide will be the price that you pay.

If you face the same stubborn blockage after a service appointment through our mechanical or manual methods, we can undertake a much more detailed analysis using imaging CCTV to find the root cause. This is a no obligation estimate that can include the advanced cause of your plumbing issue and fix the problem at no extra charge.

With the help of the company that offers CCTV drain surveys, you can make sure that your plumbing has not been compromised and you can know the full extent of the issue.

If you’re interested in preventing domestic blocked drains after we have handled your problem, it’s important to keep in mind that there are some easy ways to prevent your drains from blocking up again:

Getting regular surveys: getting regular surveys if you notice that your drain is starting to move slowly can be important. Monitoring your pipes will help to prevent further problems and make sure that when they are starting to drain a little bit slowly, that they can be scraped out and secured for the future.

Scrape any food waste off of plates: scraping food waste off plates before they go in the sink to make sure that there is less food waste that goes down the drain. Removing food waste from your plates can help to make sure that you can prevent food waste from clogging your pipes.

Never pour grease directly down the drain: leave greasy items to cool and then scrape them into the bin rather than pouring them down the drain.

Using the right detergents and soaps: make sure that you are using soap and detergent that is designed to break down grease and oil. Using the right dish soap could often lead to less oil and fats collecting in your drain basin.
