Blocked Drains Wirral

Wirral's #1 for drain cleaning & drain unblocking

Is your Wirral home or business suffering from blocked drains? Or perhaps your sink is taking a suspiciously long time to fully drain? If so, fortunately, RDP NW Ltd offers 24/7 call-out services on the Wirral. This service covers the entire Wirral peninsula from Neston up to New Brighton and everywhere in between. Our team of drain specialists are available for emergency call-outs and for routine maintenance jobs.

When a drainage problem is underground, whether it is drains, gullies, pits or pumps, it can be difficult to know exactly what the problem is and if something is blocking your drain. If you know where the problem is then a solution for this is to dig a hole and prepare yourself for the worst, maybe leaking sewage.

Often this method is impracticable, particularly when the problem is a blocked drain under your brand-new flooring or somewhere along a 30-metre soil pipe. Here at RPD, our plumbing experts make it possible to see the blocked drain problem without resorting to such disruptive methods. We fix blocked drains in Wirral, Liverpool and all over the North West.

To ensure costs do not spiral out of control, we offer a FREE call-out service. We also offer you a written quote before work begins. This ensures you are not hit with a bill you will struggle to afford. Call the team today on 0151 668 0833.

What Causes A Blocked Drain?

Blocked drains are quite common, and happen to everybody at some point. The main culprits are often caused by hair in the shower, cooking fat or scraps of food which clog the drain. All of these drain blockages are extremely common causes of drainage problems when they get stuck in your drains.

We also often have seen things blocking drains that should not even have been there in the first place. From toys to phones and cups of coffee - mismanaging your waste could become very costly as most insurance companies will not pay out claims if a blocked drain is due to your own negligence. 

We advise that you should avoid throwing any "foreign objects" or waste that should not belong in a drain. Only human waste and soft toilet paper down your bathroom drain, and only fluid cooking waste down your kitchen drain.

Drain Repairs in Wirral

Often, unblocking the drain is not enough to fix the problem and the pipework itself is in need of repair. Wherever possible, we use trench-less technologies to reline your drains, which is the most cost-effective and stress-free way to repair a damaged drain or sewer. The basic concept is to create a pipe within a pipe to restore the integrity of the pipe.

Another issue that can damage the pipes and block your drains is tree roots. The roots are naturally drawn to water and can eventually cause the drain to collapse if they find their way in. High-pressure jetting is used to cut the roots from within and a structural liner prevents roots from growing back in the future.

We offer drain relining services in the following areas across Merseyside:

We’ve got the answers to your questions on Drain Unblockers Wirral


  • What has caused my drains to block? The most common materials found in drains are outdoor materials such as leaves or stones, baby wipes or nappies, clogged hair, or soaps, and one the biggest factors, left over food. If bits of food or oil and grease get stuck in your drainpipes, they solidify making your drains block up pretty quickly. Each year in the U.K, around 360,000 tonnes of oil, grease and saturated fats are emptied down drains and into our sewers; it’s easy to see why this causes such a problem for our drains! It’s important to utilise general waste or recycle bins for these items rather than them going down the sink, shower, or toilet.


  • How do I know when my drains are blocked? There are a few signs you can look out for which indicate the early stages of blockages. These are an unusual smell, rising water in your toilet, strange gurgling sounds or slow draining water from your sink or shower/bath. As soon as you identify any of these signs, give us a call straight away to prevent future emergencies and save yourself from costly long-term damage.


  • Can we clear drains as well as unblocking them? Included in our regular drain maintenance, we clean your drains minimising the risk of potential blockages. When we unblock your drains, this is a repair of the drainage system. It’s best in the long run to benefit from our regular drain maintenance to avoid any emergency callouts.


  • How much does drain unblocking cost? This is relative to how long it will take our engineers to unblock the drain and repair the problems. We perform an initial survey to evaluate the damage and can provide a quote from there; each case can vary


  • Can I fix the drains myself? You could attempt to use drain cleaner on smaller scale blockages, but this could potentially make the situation even worse. It’s best to give us a call straight away so we can fix the problem for you.


  • What time are you open? We work every day of the week, 9am - 6pm. We offer emergency callouts for drain repairs in the Wirral, so you’re never left without a solution.


  • What does high-pressure jetting do? Our water jets blast through your drains at very high pressure, helping to break down any unwanted materials which are blocking your drains. Operated by our highly skilled engineers, our water jets won’t damage your drains, they’ll just do a fantastic job of clearing them in the most efficient way.

This is a much cleaner and more cost-effective method to drain repairs. Even if the cause of your drain damage is from tree roots, don’t worry, we have a solution!
