Blocked Drains


What are the main causes of drain blockages?

The main causes of household drain blockages can be avoided as often many drain blockages are caused by things such as leftover food, materials and items being flushed down the pipes.

The main cause of a blocked drain in the kitchen is the remnants of your food stuck in the pipes or solidified grease and oil that has been poured down the drain. Around 360,000 tonnes of grease, oil and saturated fats are deposited down drains and into UK sewers each year, which is a cause for drains getting blocked.

In a similar way that fatty food increases the circumference of our waistline, fats can narrow the circumference of drainage and sewage pipes, threatening blockage and back-up. Combine the fat and oil deposits with other waste such as wet wipes, nappies and earbuds, it can give the grease structural bondage, which makes the blockage stronger and harder to remove.

In most cases, our drain jetting service near Liverpool will resolve your issues with blocked drains. We are experts at unblocking drains from food, general waste and broken pipes. Call today for help with your drain on 0151 668 0833.

How to spot a blocked drain

Blocked drains and partial drain blockages are relatively easy to spot. There could be a strong odour coming from your plug holes and drains which can be the first tell telling sign of a possible obstruction or blockage in the pipes. Another sign to look out for is a slow-draining toilet, shower, bath or sink. In some severe cases of drain blockage, the water may not drain away at all.

Another tell-tale sign that may indicate that you need to get your drains inspected is if you notice the pipes are making a strange or different sound to what they usually do. If you notice that your drains are not working properly, it's important that you fix them as soon as possible.

Leaving drains unblocked for prolonged periods of time can create further problems and issues down the line. Contact our drainage specialists to fix your blocked drain in Liverpool today.

Blocked drains Liverpool Q&A 

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about blocked drains from Liverpool residents. 

Are my drains public or private?

Drains have boundaries, and every drain within the boundary of your property is your responsibility. Once the drain is beyond your boundaries, it becomes the responsibility of the local water companies, in the case of Drain Unblocking Liverpool will become United Utilities.

Who is responsible for the sewer on my property?

You are legally responsible for maintaining the drains inside the boundaries of your property. You are free to choose how to maintain your drains or repair your Drain Unblocking Liverpool and which company will carry out this work. In some cases, some of the drainage network is located in a property with multiple houses, for instance, a block of flats. In this case, all owners who have a stake in the building are mutually responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the drains

What are the most common materials that are found in blocked drains?

The most common materials found by our engineers include hair, baby wipes, soaps, outdoor materials (i.e. leaves, twigs stones), nappies etc. Any of these items can cause blockages that have the potential to be disastrous for the properties drainage system. This is why we would suggest disposing the materials into a general waste bin instead.

How does drain jetting work?

Water is blasted through the drain at very high pressure. When in close proximity to the blockage this will help break down the material and clear out the drain completely.

Does drain jetting cause any damage to the drain?

No, our experienced engineers are trained to assign the correct pressure to keep the structure of the drain intact.

What is the difference between clearing a drain and unblocking a drain?

Cleaning a drain is part of maintaining the drainage system whereas drain unblocking is repairing the system. If you would like to reduce the risk of developing blocked drains then we would suggest regular drain clearing as a way to mitigate any risks of developing blockages.
