Signs of a Block Drain

There are many ways in which a drain can become blocked, so it is important to ensure you are always on the lookout for any warning signs. Some of the first signs of a blocked drain are an unpleasant aroma and water draining away slowly. These are signs that there is a minor issue and maybe a partially blocked drain and, if not handled immediately, this can escalate.  

More problematic signs include a raised water level in the drain, water flowing back into the sink, and irregular noises such as bubbling and gurgling. These are signs that there is a larger blockage, and the situation is much more urgent.  

If you notice any of the above signs, you need to call our expert team here at No1 PHD to unblock drains, Southampton clients before the situation escalates further

What Can Block a Drain?

There are many household products and wastes that can cause your drain to become blocked, and many homeowners aren’t even aware of the damage they can cause. Throwing by-products of food preparation such as butter, lard, and oil down the drain can cause a sticky layer to coat the pipes, and this can be built up over time. Other products such as toothpaste and soap can add to this layer, coating the pipes, and this forms a barrier in the pipes.  

Other materials that can cause a blocked drain include hair, which can attach to the sticky fat coating the pipes, and products such as toilet paper that never fully dissolves. Additional materials such as cotton buds, food waste, and even children’s plastic toys can all lead to a blocked drain.  

How Drains Become Blocked

There are many steps to a drain becoming blocked, the first of which is normally greasy materials such as oil, butter, and soap being washed down the sink. These materials can form a sticky coating on the pipes that builds up over time, and other materials that are later washed down the sink can stick to this. Anything from hair, food waste, and toilet paper can attach themselves to the sticky coating in your pipes.  

This will eventually build up over time, leaving a smaller and smaller space for water to flow through the pipes, leading to a full blockage unless it is rectified. Some blockages can happen quicker than others, with things such as toys being flushed down the toilet by children.   

Our Service to Unblock Drains Southampton Can Trust

Here at No1 PHD, we will first use CCTV equipment to determine the exact cause and location of the blockage and if there is any structural damage. From there, we can come up with an efficient way to rectify the situation and unblock the drains, Southampton clients.   

The usual method we employ to clear your drains is drain jetting, where we use industrial-grade equipment. We use high-powered water pressure to break up the blockage, and this can generally disperse even the toughest of blockages within a few hours.  


Preventing Blocked Drains in Future

There are a few easy ways in which you can prevent your drains from blocking in the future, one of which is to use a sink strainer. These are small sieves that are placed over plugholes, and they catch any materials such as hair that can block your drains. You simply remove and clean them before replacing them back over your drains.  

Other ways you can prevent your drain from blocking include not pouring oils and greasy products down your sinks and being watchful of what you flush down the toilet.  

Blockages Caused by Tree Roots 

One cause of blocked drains that is hard to prevent yourself is that causes by tree roots. Any trees growing in the vicinity of your drains, even tiny saplings, have an extensive root system, and these can grow into your pipes and crack them, causing blockages and structural damage. This is something we can help with at No1 PHD as we are experts in clearing and repairing drains damaged by tree roots.  

Other Drain Services

Here at No1 PHD, we are experts when it comes to working on drains. As such, as well as unblocking drains in Southampton, we can also provide a variety of other drainage services too, including:  

Pitch Fibre Drains 

The drainage industry used to use pitch fibre piping for drain work and, while this is no longer in use, there are many pitch fibre drains around. These were made from a mix of wood cellulose and inert coal tar pitch, and they were used as a cost-effective drainage method. However, these are more susceptible to damage than other pipes, so they have been discontinued in the drainage industry.  

If you have any pitch fibre pipes in your drainage system, these will eventually need to be repaired or upgraded, which is where we come in to help at No1 PHD. We can repair or replace pitch fibre piping depending on the pipes in question and your requirements.  

Drain Rodding  

Drain rodding is a technique that is used to unblock drains, Southampton clients. It can be useful for locating an obstruction that has formed in the deeper reaches of a drain and is an ideal technique for emergency drain unblocking.   

This is a quick and easy drain clearing method, and it removed congested blockages in all types of drains. It can even be an effective tool for tree root removal, too, making it a versatile service when it comes to unblocking drains in Southampton.  

Drain Lining

Drain lining is a method of repairing pipes that have become cracked and damaged, and it is an effective and cost-efficient option. Rather than digging up your drainage system to replace the damaged pipes with new ones, we can simply reline the existing pipes, making this a non-invasive service.  

This works by inserting a liner material into the pipe and, once it is in position, we inflate the liner using water or air pressure, pushing it towards the inner walls of the pipe. The liner moulds to the inner wall of the pipe, covering any cracks and small holes, and then it is left to cure. Once it has set, this liner becomes very durable and extends the service life of your pipe, all without having to dig up and replace any piping.   

Leak Detection

It can be difficult knowing if you have a leak and, if you do, where this leak is located. This is why you need experts like our team at No1 PHD to carry out leak detection services for you. We use specialist equipment to detect leaks in your property, from infrared technology to acoustic equipment. Our team will use the tools necessary to detect where the leak is located and, once we have found it, advise you on the best way to have it repaired.  

Better yet, we won’t just detect the leak and offer advice; we are a team with years of experience and a wealth of knowledge, so we will be able to assist in repairing the leak too.

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.
