Blocked Drains in Herne Bay, Whitstable
and the Wider Kent Area

Does water drain slowly out of your sink, shower or bath? Do you have an unpleasant odour drifting out of a plughole? If you suspect you have blocked drains, you must act quickly to avoid an emergency drainage situation further down the line. If a small build-up of material becomes a much larger blockage, you will likely face the unpleasant experience of having unusable toilets, sinks, baths or showers. When this occurs, you face unhygienic conditions, severe disruption, a foul smell and a greater risk of water damage.

For a rapid response with long-lasting results, contact BP Drains Ltd. We can restore normality without delay.

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.

But natural factors play a role in creating emergency drainage problems too. Earth movement and tree root intrusion damage pipes, while some systems simply reach the end of their lifespan. When the latter happens, the pipework becomes more susceptible to fracturing and collapse.

The most common causes of blocked drains we encounter include:

  • Fat or Grease Build-up

  • Wet Wipes

  • Accumulated Hair

  • Toiletries

  • Small Items of Clothing

  • Silt Build-Up

  • Excessive Toilet Paper

  • Tree Leaves

  • Structural Issues

  • Tree Root Intrusion

  • Sanitary Products

  • Plastic Bags

While it’s impossible to eliminate the chances of a block occurring, basic changes to habits and behaviour help to lower the risk.

If you do experience a blocked drainage system at your Kent property, you can rely on BP Drains Ltd. We provide emergency drainage work on a 24/7 basis. We constantly man our phones, so you’ll always get through to us.

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.

  • Water level rises after you flush the toilet

  • Gurgling noises coming from plugholes

  • Foul odours emanating from the toilet

  • Slow-draining water in sink, baths and showers

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.
