Drain and sewage clearance

Adrain or sewer block can be a huge inconvenience, and unfortunatelyfrom time to time, hair, grease and solids can cause a blockage.Professional drain cleaners can remove a blockage whilst alsostopping a future occurrence.

Thereare many ways to tackle a drain or sewer blockage, such as chemicaldrain cleaners and air burst drain cleaners.

Thereare also devices that can be used in the event of a large blockagethat can remove obstructions throughout the drain’s entire length.These are known as sewer jets or electric drain cleaners.

Drainblockage removal is effective and will eliminate any problem quicklywith no inconvenience.

Whattype of drain cleaning service will I need?

  • Handheld drain augers

Handheldaugers can unblock obstructions up to eight metres from the drain’sopening. They use a long cable which is driven by rotating the drum.The cables are often thin enough to squeeze past sink traps. However,they’re discouraged from use on toilets as the ceramic couldscratch.

  • Air burst drain cleaners

Air burst cleanersuse accelerated gas to disintegrate the blockage. Carbon dioxide isfrequently used, but normal air and other gases are viable too. Airburst cleaners work best when the blockage is close to the drainentrance and they have a better range than plungers.

  • Electric drain cleaners

These types of draincleaner are essentially longer versions of the handheld auger. It canclear blockages up to 40 metres from entry point as the cable twistsup through the piping. Electric drain cleaners should only beoperated by skilled professionals as they require a great physicaleffort to control and can be expensive to buy.

  • Sewer jetters

High pressurisedwater is used in this instance to clear pipes and drains. They notonly remove the initial blockage but also help to prevent futureoccurrences. Sewer jetters can be used to remove blockages throughoutthe pipework’s entire length. Experts are needed in this case asyou must be fully trained to operate the machine.

  • Enzymatic drain cleaners

Enzymatic cleanersuse bacteria to react with sewer residue and clear slow movingdrains. They’re often used as a form of maintenance rather thanunblocking obstructions.

Drain and sewer clearance FAQs

How do I fix a blocked drain?

Depending on the size and location of the blockage, a blocked drain may be fixed by simply removing the build-up. This can be done either by using drain cleaner or physically removing the blockage. If the blockage is very serious or located within the pipes themselves, you will need to contact a plumber.
