Common problems for drainpipes
Blocked Drain Clearance & Solutions
Usually caused by fatty substances (grease, cooking oil and fats) that are washed down the sink and stick to the inside of the pipes. This causes a build up and eventually a blockage.
Solution: Internal sink pipes are usually cleaned by either high pressure water jetting or drain wire.
Blocked showers and baths
Usually caused by a build up of hair, mixed together with shampoo and soap which bind together and create pipe blockages, often at pipe joints.
Solution: Internal bath and shower drainage pipes are usually cleaned by either high pressure water jetting or drain wire.
External outside drain blockages
These can be caused by more than just the usual waste blockages (as mentioned above). Outside drains can easily get blocked up with leaves, tree roots and more.
Solution: Outside drains are unblocked and cleared using rods and high pressure water jetting.
Usually caused due to too much toilet paper, sanitary products and even nappies being flushed down the toilet. Sometimes even a toy or a mobile phone can accidently end up being flushed down the toilet causing a toilet blockage. External access to sewer manholes and the main sewer pipes is often required, depending where the drain pipe blockage is located.
Solution: High pressure water jetting and rods are used to unblock external drains.
Manual Rodding is an extremely efficient and cost effective way to clear blocked drains and restore to full flow. Yet, it takes moments to set up and is a straight forward, a no nonsense way to clear simple blockages. The specialist rods used by our engineers are designed with different attachments that are used in a variety of different situations dependant on the type of blockage.
High Pressure Jet Cleaning
Direct Drains drain jet cleaning service provides fast and effective cleaning for sewers, drains, pipes, interceptor tanks and grease traps, using high pressure water jetting.
Drain Root Removal
A large amount of damage can be caused to drainage systems by tree roots damaging and causing blockages in the drains.
Direct Drains can remove the roots and determine if they have caused damage to the pipework. If they have, drain lining is likely to be the best solution, in most cases.
