Blocked Drains and Drain Clearing
Blocked drains can quickly escalate from being a minor inconvenience to causing structural or major water damage, so it’s important to use a professional plumber to properly diagnose the problem and do the job right. VHL’s team of plumbers are CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering) registered and fully insured, giving you piece of mind that your drain clearing work is completed by a fully-qualified team of professionals.
Common symptoms of blocked drains include:
- Bad smells like rotting eggs
- Gurgling sinks, baths, showers or toilets
- Overflowing sinks or toilets, or slow draining when the plug is pulled or the toilet flushed
- Drains outside blocked and overflowing e.g. the kitchen waste drain, or a blocked gully
Drain Jetting vs. Rod Cleaning
While using drain rods can be appropriate for some blockages using high pressure water jetting is a much more effective way to unblock and clean drains. It is also less finicky than having to negotiate bends in drainpipes and drainage systems. VHL offers drain jetting services at competitive rates.
