What Are The Main Causes of Blocked Pipes and Clogged Drains?
Blocked drains are a nuisance all round, so it makes sense to try and understand why they occur.
Outdoor drain blockages are more likely to be caused by build-up of leaves or garden debris, or even tree roots that have worked their way into drainage pipes. As a matter of routine, you should always keep drains free from foliage and garden waste that could be washed into the drain. Problems with indoor drains are usually the cause of something that was flushed down the sink or toilet.
Indoor drain blockages typically occur because of a problem with kitchen, bathroom or toilet drains. Blocked bathroom or toilet drains are typically due to incorrect items put down the toilet. It is worth pointing out that you should never attempt to flush away nappies, sanitary pads or tampons, face wipes, cotton wool, hair or excessive amounts of toilet paper – all of these can clog up the loo.
The culprit for blocked kitchen drains is usually food particles – particularly kitchen grease, coffee grounds and bits of leftover food – that can build up over time and cause a blockage. It’s really important to monitor what goes down the sink!
The last thing you want to do is to tackle a blocked drain yourself, whether it is at home or at your workplace. If ever there was a messy, smelly job that required expert assistance, this must surely be it. That’s where The Drain Guys come in.

Do You Charge a Call Out Fee for a blocked drain?
We do not charge a call out fee! The fee is quoted before the job is undertaken usually during a phone call with the customer then it is confirmed once we are at the site. No work is undertaken without the fixed price being quoted and accepted. We do also offer free site visits for quotes on larger jobs.
Do You Need to Do a CCTV drain Survey?
Not every job we go to needs a CCTV survey. In many situations a blacked drain is very clear and easy to diagnose due to various signs we know to look out for. However, in some circumstances we need to use CCTV technology to explore the drain further and find out why the drain isn’t allowing proper water flow. By doing a CCTV survey we can often identify a larger underlying problem that might have been missed by simply jetting the drain and getting things moving. By identifying these more serious issues we can often help you save money in the long run.
How Do I Prevent a Blocked Drain in the Future?
In terms of normal drain blockages you can simply be more careful about what goes into your drains. Fat and other food wastes should be kept out of the sink and away from drain where ever possible. By looking at what you put into your drains and understanding what causes blockages you can avoid many of the common issues in the future. In some cases the drain is blocked because of tree roots or pipe damage which cannot be prevented in the same way. Objects going into outside drains like toys and balls can be avoided and are common reasons for a blocked drain.
Are There Any Hidden Charges?
No. We make sure all the costs related to a job are clearly discussed and understood. All standard blockages are done on a fixed agreed price. However, any unusual or additional problems will be discussed and quoted on site before any work is undertaken. These can include damage to the pipe rather than a simple blockage.
