Local Drainage Engineers

There are many reasons as to why a drain might become blocked, and the severity of the blockage can determine the signs that follow.

The most common causes of drain blockages are:

• Excessive Use of Toilet Paper
• Food Waste
• Foreign Objects, such as Keys and Small Toys
• Hair
• Hygiene Products, such as Wet Wipes
• Soap

Hair

The average person loses around 80-120 hairs per day, especially when in the shower, and these hairs can all too often end up accumulating in the drain and around the plughole. It is here that hair binds with grease to form a mass through, which water will struggle to penetrate. Drain guards are usually the best preventative measure, but if you’ve neglected to use one, you might find that your drain is now well and truly blocked.

Soap

If you still use traditional soap bars, you might want to consider switching to an alternative. The grease and fat used to manufacture these bars bind with minerals in the water leaving behind a hard residue. It’s this residue that builds up in the drains, eventually leading to a blockage.

Food Waste

Food waste can be split into two categories – what you leave on your plate and what comes off your food while cooking. Fats, oils and greases solidify as they cool down and will form a blockage if placed directly down the sink. As such, they should always be placed into a suitable container, such as a glass jar. Likewise, any food left on your plate should always be scraped into the bin.

Foreign Objects

While not as common as the others mentioned here, foreign objects can often be a factor and are nearly impossible to remove without professional assistance. Objects like keys, small toys and stuffed animals can often find their way into the toilet, and it’s usually children who are the culprits.

Toilet Paper & Hygiene Products

Some drainage systems are simply unable to handle large amounts of toilet paper, resulting in blockages occurring within the U-Bend. Likewise, hygiene products, such as wet wipes do not flush well with some toilets. Products like sanitary towels should never be flushed as these will nearly always become lodged further down.

While a blocked toilet can be unblocked using a plunger, if the blockage is severe enough and the water level rises with each flush, you’ll need to seek out professional assistance.

Drainage Specialists

As a local drainage company with on call drainage specialists 24/7, we are constantly dealing with blockages.If your drain is blocked but otherwise undamaged, the next step for us is to remove the blockage and clean the pipes. We use a combination of drain rods, which are tools utilised to dislodge blockages and high pressure water – drain jetting systems. Water jets are high pressure systems that blast away stubborn blockages and remove fat, grease and oil, leaving pipes spotless.

Drain Relining

In some cases, a drain may have become damaged or misaligned or might simply have worn away with age. In cases like this, the affected pipes must be replaced as well as unblocked, and this is something that No 1 PHD Limited can help with. Drain relining is both cost-effective and non-destructive and is an excellent way to repair drains without having to dig up the area.

Drain relining can be used to reinforce old and weakened pipes, seal fractures, realign misaligned pipes and extend the life expectancy of any drainage system. In some cases, drain relining can stretch a drain’s life span by as many as 50 years or more. But what is drain relining?

In a nutshell, drain relining is a process where a pipe is created within a pipe. A liner impregnated with a special resin is inserted into the pipe and inflated. Once inflated, the liner is then heated using hot water or UV lighting causing the resin to adhere and set to the inside of the current pipe. The liner is then removed, leaving behind a brand-new resin pipe that will seal up any cracks, allow for water to flow correctly and keep out any pests.

Benefits

There are many benefits to opting for our drain relining services. In nearly all cases, there is zero need for any excavating to occur although if the pipe has sharp bends, some digging may be required. Overall, the process will always save you time and money when compared to traditional techniques. Drain relining can be applied to pipes of virtually any size and can even go around 45o and 90o bends.

It is also an environmentally friendly solution as sewage will be prevented from seeping out where it can cause harm to the surrounding area as well as water pollution.

Signs of a Blocked Drain

Our drainage services include unblocking drains that can occur gradually or quickly. This can happen with greater frequency in low-lying areas, valleys and riverside properties. Depending on the severity of the blockage, you may notice a variety of different signs, including:

• Slowly Draining Water
• Standing Water
• Rattling Sounds Coming from the Drain
• Unpleasant Odour

In serious cases where the drain is completely blocked, the water level can rise rapidly leading to the drain overflowing. For internal drains, this can result in a room or an entire property becoming flooded, so time is of the essence when calling No 1 PHD, your ‘local drainage company near me.’

CCTV Surveys

Here at No 1 PHD Limited, we have the drainage engineers with the means and know-how to provide practical solutions for all drain cleaning situations. Our drainage services are second-to-none and are always preceded with a thorough survey designed to get to the bottom of the issue as quickly as possible. In years gone by, if you were faced with a drainage issue, your only solution would be to call a company to dig up the area in order to reach the blocked pipe.

As you would imagine, this would typically be quite expensive and incredibly disruptive to both the customer and their neighbours. Nowadays, the process is far more straightforward thanks to innovations in fibre optics and camera technology. A mini CCTV survey is far less destructive and invasive and will save the customer both time and money.

A fibre optic drain camera service involves our team feeding the camera into the drain itself and pushed along the pipe until it reaches the site of the blockage. The camera is highly flexible, able to navigate tight bends and other obstacles to reach its destination. It is also highly durable and able to withstand any water, dirt, grime or objects that might otherwise cause it damage. All images recorded by the camera are then relayed back to a high definition screen that will be monitored by one of our trained drainage specialists.

Our team can use these images to determine the cause of the blockage as well as identify any hairline fractures or areas where the pipe has become misaligned. A rodent infestation, for instance, could be the cause of the blockage as rodents can enter through gaps created by misaligned pipes. Weak points can also be noted and all relevant information compiled into a report which will be presented to the customer for their review and consideration.
