Dealing with drain blockages


Posted on: February 13th, 2014

Drain blockages, in particular blocked household drains, are inconvenient and can also be a potential health hazard. Most drain blockages are preventable and some of the common causes are avoidable.

 

Common causes of blocked drains

  • pouring cooking fat, oils and grease down drains – these can solidify into the waste system and are notoriously difficult to remove
  • detergent scaling, particularly in hard water areas
  • flushing paper and cloth products such as disposable nappies, sanitary towels, cotton wool buds and newspapers down toilets – they can form a solid mass and eventually stop the flow of water.
  • pouring cement and plaster down drains – these can set rock-hard in the drain
  • pouring waste oil from motor vehicles into drains – it is illegal to do this
  • collapsed or damaged pipes.

 

Drain blockages often require CCTV drain surveys

How can I get my drains unblocked?

Contact a specialist contractor such as Scanseal and request a drain survey or quote to carry out the work. Alternatively you can hire the necessary drainage equipment and/or drain camera from Scanprobe if you are competent to perform the work yourself.

What if my drains keep blocking?

This may suggest that your pipes are faulty in some way. Tree root penetration and subsidence are common causes of broken pipes and specialist equipment is required to cut the roots and then repair the pipe.

If you are a property owner, you may want to have a drain survey using close circuit television (CCTV) equipment. You may find that the cost of a drain repair to your house is covered by your insurance.

Flooding causes blocked drains on Kenley Industrial Estate


Posted on: February 12th, 2014

Large parts of Kenley in Surrey have been flooded as a result of the recent heavy rainfall and the river Bourne flooding which has caused blocked drains which in turn has led to the build up of surface water. Here on the Bushy Close Industrial Estate where the Scanprobe offices are located, blocked drains and flooded drainage and sewer systems have resulted in flooding around the units necessitating the need for businesses to erect flood defenses to protect property and equipment.

The source of the river Bourne is at nearby Warlingham and it has taken 2 – 3 days for the deluge of water to travel down and take its full effect on the Kenley area.
