How to prevent blocked drains

Most blocked drains are easily prevented. The earlier you act, the easier the blockage is to fix. Conversely, the longer you leave it, the more likely you’ll be to end up with some costly repairs.

The most important piece of advice you’ll receive when it comes to preventing blocked drains is to watch what you’re putting down your drains. For toilets – you should only be flushing toilet paper (no nappies, wipes or sanitary products like pads and tampons) and only as much as you actually need. For sinks, use a drain cover to stop food and debris going down the plug hole. You also should avoid pouring oil and fat down it and dispose of it instead.

Another action you can take to prevent blocked drains is to regularly pour boiling water down your drains. This helps clear some smaller blockages. Baking soda and vinegar can also help.

How can I tell my drain is blocked?

There are a few signs that will help you tell whether your drain is blocked. Slow draining water, gurgling sounds coming from your drains and pipes, and a bad smell are all signs your drain is blocked. If you notice any of these signs, get in touch with Total Drainage Services as soon as possible. We can come and identify the blockage and tackle it effectively.

My drain is blocked! What should I do?

If you suspect your drain is blocked, without knowing the extent of the blockage, it’s always best to seek expert advice before doing anything. If you don’t, you could make the problem worse. For minor blockages, pouring boiling water down the drain might help dislodge some of what’s causing the blockage. Or, try baking soda and vinegar. You can also buy drain snakes from local hardware shops to remove easy-to-reach blockages.

For serious blockages, call in the experts, At Total Drainage Services, we have the tools, skills and knowledge to sort your blockage, ASAP.

How long does drain clearance take?

The length of time drain clearance will take will depend on the type and location of the drain and blockage. For most domestic blockages, we can identify the problem and solve it there and then. However, some blockages will require more specialist investigation – which is where a CCTV drain survey might come in. Our engineers are highly trained and experienced when it comes clearing blockages, so we aim to have your drainage issues sorted as swiftly as possible.

What causes blocked drains?

The main culprit when it comes to blocked drains is people flushing or pouring substances down their drains that shouldn’t be in there. Common causes include:

  • Cooking fat, grease and food debris
  • Hair
  • Sanitary towels and tampons
  • Wipes (or too much tissue paper)
  • Toys

External factors like tree roots can also cause blockages to outdoor drains.

At Total Drainage Services, we can identify the source of the blockage and remove it, allowing your water to run freely once more. Contact us if you need drain clearance in Bristol.
