Warning signs of blocked drains
We find that some of our clients panic and start pouring chemicals such as acids down the drain. Not only are these products dangerous but they can make the blockage worse. At the same time, they are harmful to people and the environment. If you try to use drain rods, you may end up compacting whatever is blocking the drain instead of moving it. Either way, it is not a good idea.
As an experienced and approved drainage contractor in the Basingstoke district, clearing blocked drains is what we do best. If you are not sure whether or not you have a blocked drain, here are just a few warning signs:
- Sink – water not draining fully
- Toilet – water rising up in the pan when you flush
- Foul smelling water
- Gurgling noise as water tries to find a way through the pipes
This can also happen in the bath or shower. Blockages in drains in Basingstoke can be caused due to so many things: fat or grease, wet wipes, disposable nappies, sanitary items, too much paper, cotton wool…and the list goes on. If you have commercial premises such as a restaurant or hotel, then blockages can occur due to guests misusing the toilets or kitchen staff are not rinsing plates fully before loading dishwashers.
