Drain Rodding

Drain rodding is a highly skilled technique that is used by our drainage experts at No1PHD to clear all types of drain blockages. It is particularly useful for locating an obstruction that has formed within the deepest reaches of the drainage system. Drain rodding can even involve working from a nearby manhole chamber and using several different cutting tools to remove a blockage before cleaning the drain with a high pressure water jet. Blocked drains can pose a threat to your family’s health and damage your property, so when you need help fast, contact your local No1PHD team for a no obligation free quote.

Surface Water Drain Blockages

A surface water drain carries rainwater from a property’s gutterings. Blockages are generally caused by compacted leaves, soil and garden debris that has been washed into the drain. These blockages are usually easy to reach and break up with a drain rod system. The drain rodding procedure is then usually completed by flushing debris from the pipe with high pressure water jetting.

Foul Water Drain Blockages

A foul water drain is used for household waste from kitchens and bathrooms. It runs in a separate sewer system and the waste water has to be treated. This drain can become blocked by the long-term accumulation of grease, fat, soap, hair, disposable paper products and food particles. It’s the most troublesome of the two drains and if you don’t take care to limit the amount of debris disappearing down the plugholes, unblocking it can become a repetitive task. Always clear food from plates and saucepans before washing them up and use additional sieves in the plugholes to trap debris and hair.

When is Drain Rodding Necessary?

You’ll soon know when you need our professional drain rodding service to clear a blocked drain. You’ll begin to notice that water drains away slowly or it will regularly flood the area around the drain. There is usually a persistent, unpleasant smell from the bacteria and gases trapped in the drainage system. Waste water may return through the drainpipes into your sink or bath. The colour of the waste water will be dark and littered with debris and there can often be bubbling, spluttering noises in the pipes.

How Drain Rodding Clears a Blocked Drain

Drain rodding allows our drainage specialists to reach obstructions that have become deeply lodged in the underground system. Flexible rods of polypropylene that measure approximately one metre each are screwed together as required to explore the drainage system beneath your property until the blockage is reached. The total length of the assembled rods can sometimes be several metres. It takes a great deal of skill to perform drain rodding to prevent damaging the pipes. In addition, during the action of pushing the rods through the pipework, then slicing and pulling at the obstruction, an untrained hand nearly always untwists the rods and they become lost and have to be recovered. Fortunately, all the No1PHD drainage specialists have vast experience in using the drain rodding technique and can successfully clear most blockages without too many issues. If needs be, we also have CCTV inspection devises that can help assist us on the harder to find blockages.

Removing a Tree Root Blockage with Drain Rodding

Drains can become obstructed by the roots of trees growing up to seven metres away. The problem begins with hairlike roots infiltrating the drainpipe through cracks or where there is a joint. Over a few growing seasons, multiple slim roots can quickly expand and form a dense fibrous mat until they completely obstruct the flow of water. Our experienced team of tree root ingress experts will often use drain rodding tools to quickly and easily remove tree roots. Special tools are used at the far end of the rods to slice through and wind up the roots in order to pull them out. Larger roots can widen cracks in the drainpipe, which may then need repairing with our professional drain lining service.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

Mr Lincoln

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
