What Causes Blocked Drains?
Blocks in drainage systems occur for numerous reasons. In some cases, it comes down to bad habits. This includes improper disposal of waste and household products that collect in your pipes over time.

The most common causes of blocked drains we encounter include:
While it’s impossible to eliminate the chances of a block occurring, basic changes to habits and behaviour help to lower the risk.

What are the Early Signs of a Blocked Drain?
It pays to stay vigilant for changes in your drainage system’s performance. A fast response removes the blockage in your pipework before it has a chance to develop any further.
Of course, you don’t only remove the blockage, but also the associated stress, costs and disruption. As a customer-focused company, we want you to avoid emergency drainage situations. Below, we have listed some of the most common signs that indicate you have blocked drains.
A growing blockage reduces the internal bore of a pipe. If you’re already experiencing slow-draining water or any other change in drainage performance, you likely already have a blockage present.
