Prevent Blocked Drains
There are a number of things you can do to prevent Blocked Drain Bristol from becoming an unnecessary problem. It is important to know the warning signs and know when a blocked sink can cause further problems. If you understand these warning signs, you can prevent a complete blockage or a burst pipe, which can save you valuable time and money. Simple solutions such as boiling water, baking soda or dish detergent can clear a clogged toilet or a blocked sink within minutes and, therefore, save you from having to deal with the stressful situation that an emergency home drain blockage can cause. You can even make easy devices with coat hangers to clear a blockage in the main drainage system, keeping your drain clear and prevent further blockage.
There are simple, cheap but effective steps you can take to today to ensure that the solutions we give you are even longer-lasting. It is always better to prevent a blocked drain from happening so here are the common causes. Starting with toilets, toilet paper is the worst offender for blockages. Too much toilet paper at once time doesn’t allow your pipes to clear between uses and this will cause a build-up and eventually a blockage. Be mindful about how much toilet paper your toilet can deal with. This also applies to what you put down your toilet. Nappies, wipes and sanitary products are big no-nos for your drain. A second common blockage is hair down the shower drain. A simple hair catcher over the plughole will do the trick and prevent too much hair going down the drain.
Understanding the types of water leaks that can occur in your building’s piping can help you prevent blockages that are not always obvious. A burst pipe caused by a blockage can be disastrous to your home and can be costly to repair, so spotting the signs before any damage happens can make the work that Blocked Drain Bristol do a lot easier and much less costly.

How Do I Know if My Drains are Blocked?
It is not easy to tell whether or not your drain is blocked initially but as soon as the signs become apparent the more damage can occur. They are many telltale signs to look out for and the most obvious is the water in either your sink, bath or toilet draining slowly. If all of these are happening together then you will know that the problem is in the sewer drain. You can also usually hear if there is a problem with your drain if you hear a strange sound when flushing your toilet or when draining your sinks. A high pitched sound or gurgling can indicate air in your pipes that may be due to minor blockage.
The final sign and most unpleasant is a foul odour. This can occur after large amounts of water has down your drain or when your washing machine is draining for example. The smell occurs because the cause of your drain blockage is rotting in your pipes. If you discover any of the above signs, it is best to seek advice from an expert. Blocked Drain Bristol is available to take your call and offer advice or a time to come out to you to assess the issue.
What is the Best Way to Unblock an Outside Drain?
If you feel confident enough, you may want to assess and unblock your outside drain yourself. The drain cover is usually easy to remove and it’s important that your use a drainage rod to push through the blockage and remember to use protective clothing, gloves and a mask to prevent any dirty water on your face or in your eyes. The final thing we recommend is a hose, the more high pressure the better. Use your gloved hands to remove any reachable blockage in the drain and then use the rode to break up the blockage that is hard to reach. It may take some time depending on the scale of the blockage but using a rod, remember to always twist clockwise! After this is done, it is necessary to get rid of any debris that has been created using your hose. The clearer you leave the drain, the less likely the blockage will happen again. However, if you have a particularly stubborn blockage or unsure about equipment and tools, it’s best to call Blocked Drain Bristol.

However, just because the blockage isn’t causing an unpleasant odour that doesn’t mean you should just leave it and hope for the best. If you leave a blocked drain for too long it can harbour disease, it could also cause damage to your drain or even worse someone else’s drain, too.

High-Pressure Water Jetting
High-pressure Water Jetting or HPWJ has origins dating back to the mid-1800s when it was used in the mining industry. HPWJ has since been used for a wide range of manufacturing and cleaning applications. In the 1930s, jets of water were used in industrial cutting for example. High-Pressure Water Jetting is still used across a range of industries for cutting and cleaning purposes. This is because HPWJ has the ability to produce very clean cuts through a variety of materials. It is also used by the fossil fuel industry to remove dirt from organic and inorganic materials that would be otherwise impossible to remove. In the steel industry, HPWJ is used to cut metal blocks into pieces and metal sheets into shapes.
Blocked Drain Bristol use HPWJ to help unblock drains. We can also use HPWJ on a much lower pressure jet to take off surface dirt and clean driveways and walls.
HPWJ allows for draining without the time and monetary costs of ripping up pipework and then replacing it. Another key advantage of this system is the decreased environmental impact as no chemicals are used in the process that can enter the draining and sewer system. Chemical solutions can often corrode and damage pipes and in severely high concentrations can actually kill the microbial bacteria necessary to help maintain septic systems. This makes HPWJ a fast and economical method for clearing blocked drains.

Why is My Bath or Shower Draining Slowly?
Your blocked bath or shower plughole might not be at the top of your priority list right now but the longer you leave a blocked drain the more issues will arise and, in turn, affect your everyday life and routine.

What a Blocked Drain Bristol Jetting Job Involves
It can often be solved by accessing the pipe or U-bend where the blockage occurs, safely removing this, and manually releasing the blockage. However, if you find yourself with some seriously blocked drains and pipes, then you may need a slight step up – drain jetting is for blockages that are particularly stubborn or further down in your home’s plumbing.
But what does this process involve? Well, while it sounds scary, jetting is a simple and immensely effective drain unblocking technique that works particularly well in places where you have repeated problems! Drain Jetting is also known as High-Pressure Water Jetting, and this sheds some light on what the procedure involves. Our team will bring along a tank full of water with an attached hose and jetting nozzle for your Blocked Drain Bristol. When turned on, the water shoots through the hose at high pressures, and the nozzle directs the flow in both the forward and backwards directions.
The hose is fed through your plumbing until it reaches the problem area and then turned on, releasing lots of fast-moving water which easily breaks up stubborn blockages. The water going behind the hose helps finish the clean-up job thoroughly, meaning your pipes get a 360 clean, and any refuse stuck to the drainpipe walls is removed easily and quickly.
The jetting hose is so effective because it is flexible, and so can negotiate any bends in your system, allowing it to reach deep into the bowels of your home and remove years-old grime. It works in any sort of pipe and can remove drain blockages caused by waste, fats, grease and even tree roots! That’s simply how powerful the water is.
So if you have a particularly problematic blockage or an area of repeat blockages, let our team know and Blocked Drain Bristol will be able to help you relieve that problem.
