Blocked drains are often the result of an accumulation of substances such as oil, fat, food debris and excessive quantities of disposable paper or tissues. However, drains can also become blocked through collapsed pipes or tree roots that have grown inside them. These types of domestic property issues need a quick response. Once a blockage begins to form, the waste water can no longer drain into the sewer efficiently. If left unchecked, the problem continues until the drain overflows with hazardous waste that can even make its way into your kitchen sink through the outlet pipe. A blocked drain needs prompt action to ensure your family’s health is not at risk. If you see signs of a blocked drain, call your local drainage team in Southampton No1PHD. Our unblocking services include specialist CCTV equipment to discover the reason for your blockage. This will enable us to provide you with the fastest, most affordable solution to ensure your clogged pipes and drains are fixed promptly.

There can be many causes that lead to clogged drains and pipes. Try to look out for any of the following signs that might mean your pipes are in need of clearance and unblocking.
When oily substances such as Fat, Oil and Grease enter the drainage system, their lightweight composition prevents them being washed away. They gradually build up into an extensive, sticky substance that clogs and coats the interior of the pipes. It then traps other debris such as discarded food and hair. Even small objects such as toys or earring studs can add to the blockage. Once the fat hardens, it is impossible to move without professional help.

Our experienced team of Hampshire plumbers and drainage engineers use a variety of drain unblocking solutions that can flush and jet away clogs and stubborn blockages. Some of the methods we use include high pressure water jetting and drain rodding that can slice and unhook a blockage even deep down inside your drain. One plumbing problem many of our customers find is that it’s difficult to keep a variety of waste from entering their drains. This can lead to recurring problems, in part due to a lack of regular maintenance and plumbing system checks which can lead to severe blockages or even leaks. Bigger problems and even replacement systems that can be expensive are not uncommon. To help you maintain your drains and keep them in a clean and healthy condition, we offer affordable rates with a loyalty discount for repeat services.

The drains in older properties often become blocked through the structure collapsing. Ageing pipes frequently develop cracks through wear and tear, particularly around the joints. Building work, subsidence or excessive rainwater can also contribute to groundwork problems. This type of blockage was once one of the most expensive to fix as the pipes leading to the sewer had to be excavated and replaced. Our Southampton team of drainage experts can usually clear and repair the damage at a fraction of the cost with a technique called drain relining. This method realigns uneven pipes and repairs cracks through adding a protective waterproof lining to the interior of the pipe. Drain relining involves placing a polyester sleeve coated in a high strength resin inside the damaged pipe, then inflating it with hot water to make the resin soften and stick to the pipe. It is a robust solution that takes around four hours to complete, but it will provide many years of reliable wear.
Even trees and vigorous shrubs that seem to be at a safe distance from your drain can invade its pipework with their roots and cause a severe blockage. As they search for water, fibrous roots enter through a hairline crack and quickly form a tangled network. We frequently clear tree roots from drains by using drain rods fitted with a specialised tool to cut and wind the roots up before pulling them clear. Alternatively, our tree root ingress team can use CCTV drain camera equipment to survey the problem and use high pressure water jetting equipment to blast the roots to a pulp before flushing them harmlessly away. It’s another pipe and blocked drain solution that No1 PHD offer all our customers and can usually be completed in a short period of time with minimal disruption.

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.
