Frequently Asked Questions
What are the signs of a blocked drain?
A good indication that you have a blocked drain is when your shower, laundry, sink or bath water will not go down the drain. If your toilet is blocked you may find that the toilet water rises and your sewage gully trap may be over flowing.
What is a gully trap?
A gully trap is a basin in the ground designed to prevent foul odours coming to the surface. Wastewater from your kitchen and bathroom connect to your gully trap before going to the sewer. Gully traps are commonly located outside, close to your house with the top above ground level to prevent water entering the sewer.
My gully trap is making bubbling sounds, does this mean I have a blocked drain?
There are several possible causes of this sound, including a partial drain blockage. However, you can never be completely sure until you open it up, which is where we come in. Contact us now to get a free quote.
How can I stop my drains from becoming blocked?
The best way to stop drains becoming blocked is to use a filter to stop any hair going down the shower, bath or sink holes. Try not to flush disposable goods such as nappies. Finally, check your gutters and drains twice a year and ensure that all your drains have lids or grates.
