Outside Drains

Outside Drains Bath

You are not always there to keep track of what flows into your outdoor drains, so a little pre-planning is essential to keep your outdoor drains in Bath flowing unobstructed. Whenever it is windy or there is a lot of rain, a great deal of garden clutter can get washed into the drain pipes. Leaves and other garden debris can get trapped preventing the water from flowing efficiently.

The best way to prevent an accumulation of fallen leaves is to remove them from the garden on a regular basis. By sweeping them up and clearing out your guttering you minimise the risk of concealed build-ups.

Many gardeners recommend having a compost heap as this allows you to breakdown the leaves that have accumulated in a controlled way that benefits your garden. Backyard litter, including plastic bags, can create obstructions in outside drains in Bath. At 24 Hour Emergency Services The easiest means to minimise the risk of this is to always keep the yard clear of such litter.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Bath

Pitch fibre drains were deemed as an economical alternative to clay drain pipes. They were first installed in the 1960s and proved largely popular throughout the 70s and 80s until they were finally banned. Many older houses along with business properties use a variety of pitch fibre drains. With a lifetime of 40 years pitch fibre drains in Bath were certainly a popular alternative for building firms and homeowners looking for an affordable alternative for their drainage.

As the name suggests, pitch fibre drains were made using wood cellulose along with coal tar. Pitch fibre drains were not made using terra cotta based materials which are regarded as being a lot more hard-wearing. Plastics weren’t used either as these were less advanced than they are today. Because pitch fibre drains were manufactured using wood pulp and coal tar, they were generally a lot more affordable to make but also more prone to issues developing.

These kinds of drain pipes often tend to break. One of the ways they break is they become misshapen. The weight of the ground on them presses them into an oval shape, a process known as ovaling. This shape makes it significantly harder for water to travel through the pipes causing issues to develop with pitch fibre drains in Bath.

The leaking water can also attract tree roots that penetrate the damaged walls of the drains causing further leakages and blockages. If the coal tar layer comes away from the pipe it will leave areas that are no longer water tight and the water can begin to leak into the surrounding earth.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Bath

A blocked sewer or drain in bath is certainly not an enjoyable experience. The first warning is commonly an unbearable odour that cannot be immediately identified.

Drain pipes which become blocked can be a terrible issue if left unresolved. The smell is just one of the things that people complain about. The other thing that customers worry about when they have a clogged sewer or drain blockage in bath is where the water will go if it is unable to drain correctly.

These people have a sink filled with washing up water that will not go away or a toilet bowl that is full of water after someone tried to flush it.

When a waste pipe blocks, there is a real danger that the pressure in the drain might cause it to split and crack. If a crack occurs, there is a real risk that sewage can leak out causing even more issues to develop.

Therefore it is highly recommended that at the initial indication of a blocked waste drain pipe, Bath residents give us a call right away. We cover the whole of Bath and are on standby 24 hours a day 7 days a week to ensure your clog issues are addressed as soon as possible. Call us on 01225 956049 now.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

Blocked Drains Bath

What Causes an Obstructed Drainpipe?

An obstructed drainpipe could be a result of several things. Food debris, hygiene products, foreign objects and more get flushed down the drain, either purposely or accidentally, and create a blockage. This, in turn, causes drains to become clogged causing the issues mentioned above.

There are two types of drains to consider:

  • External Drainpipes
  • Internal Drains

One of the biggest sources of blockages in outdoor drains in Bath are leaves that are easily washed into the drains. They get caught on twigs that have also washed down into the drainpipe and this triggers a blockage.

Baby’s nappies that are put down the toilet collect together and obstruct the drainpipes reducing the chances of almost anything from passing. Kitchen sinks could also get blocked, with the main culprits being fat, grease and food debris.
