How Outside Drains Become Blocked 

Many clients come to us wondering how outside drains become blocked in the first place. The truth is that there are many reasons why drain blockages occur. Fortunately, many of them are preventable if you know what to look for. At No1 PHD, we want to provide our clients with the know-how required to help them prevent severe blockages in their drainage system. It is for this reason that we inform clients as to the ways in which drain pipes can become blocked. 

One of the most common reasons why outside drains become blocked is because of a build-up of large, solid materials in your pipes. Excess loo roll, food, and other similar objects can become stuck in pipes and stop the flow of water. Such an issue can be easily prevented by homeowners if they simply reduce the amount of solid waste they feed into their drains. This issue goes the same for oils, fats, and any other sticky substances that could line the inside of your pipes. 

Another reason why outside drains can become blocked is because of natural factors outside of your control. For example, if there has been a large storm, leaves, branches, and other debris may be blown into your drains. If this happens, then it is likely that your pipes will become clogged. The case is similar for tree root ingress, the process by which tree roots break into underground pipes for water, damaging the drain irreparably and causing a blockage. 

While it is undoubtedly challenging to prevent these types of blockages from happening, it can be done if you keep vigilant. For example, a foul smell will often rise from utilities if waste is not being drained away correctly. Similarly, if your pipe is blocked, you will find resting water in your utilities. If you keep an eye out for these signs, you can prevent severe blockages from developing by catching them early. 


Why It’s Important to Have Your Drains Unblocked 

Many clients are put off at the idea of having their drainage system cleared immediately because of the potential costs. After all, it is understandable that many homeowners are carrying out maintenance on a budget. However, it is simply essential that you have your drain cleared by professionals as soon as you suspect a problem. Failure to do so will only result in the blockage getting worse and even more costly repairs, or even drain replacements, being necessary. 

About Our Outside Drain Unblock Service 

When you first reach out to our team to deal with a blocked drain, they’ll consult with you thoroughly to determine what the problem is. Our staff will take their time to talk through your drain problem so that they can get a clear idea of the situation. Not only will this allow us to provide you with useful advice immediately, but it will also mean that we can prepare suitable equipment for the job. As we realise that drain blockages can happen at any time, we’ve made sure that we can be reached 24/7, all year round. 

After your call, our team will have a convenient time and date upon which to visit your property. Of course, if the blockage is more severe, we will send a team out to your home straight away. Upon arriving at your site, we’ll start by carrying out a thorough inspection of your pipes. Through the use of fibre-optic cameras, we’ll be able to get live images of your pipes, which will allow us to identify the exact location of the blockage. 

Once we’ve found the root of the blockage, our team will utilise the appropriate method and equipment to have it cleared. You can expect us to work with speed and efficiency as we aim to have the blockage cleared as soon as possible. This quick and effective service is why clients continue to choose our outside drain to unblock service. 

Drain Jetting 

One of the methods we use to clear drains is drain jetting. This process involves a member of our team hooking up a high-pressure water hose to your pipes and shooting water into them. This clearing method will see the water blast through any blockages and wipe clean in the inside of your pipes. This effective approach to clearing blockages will mean that your pipes have minimal chance of becoming blocked in the future and will even operate more effectively in the present. 

Drain Rodding 

If the blockage in your pipes is not that severe, our team will use drain rods. These small tools are inserted into drains and are used to scrape away any objects stuck to the inside as well as prod through blockages. Drain rodding is an inexpensive, time-efficient, and cost-saving cleaning technique, which is perfect for smaller blockages. 

Pitch Fibre Drains 

Pitch fibre drains are an unseen issue that many homeowners will need to deal with at some point. Cheaply made in the past, pitch fibre drains are notorious for collapsing with time, so it is essential for them to be replaced to prevent disruption. Our skilled team can replace your pitch fibre drains without the need for excavation, meaning you can enjoy new pipes hassle-free. If you suspect that you have pitch fibre pipes in your home, reach out to our team now.

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.

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.
