Prevention is the best cure, and this applies to protecting your outdoor drains. Unlike internal drains, you have little to no control over what goes down an outdoor drain. Strong winds and heavy rain can cause leaves, branches and other objects to enter the drain system where they become lodged creating a blockage.
At 24 Hour Emergency Services, we believe the best way to minimise the risk of a build-up of leaves and twigs is to regularly remove them from your back garden. Sweeping of floors and clearing of gutters is a great way to reduce the chances of blockages occurring with your outdoor drains in Brighton.
Many gardeners recommend placing a compost stack somewhere in your garden. Not only does this provide an excellent source of fertiliser for your garden, it also helps keep your garden clear of any debris that might block your drains. It is also wise to grab litter in the yard including bags that have blown in. This will keep the yard looking great and will reduce the chance of blocked drains in Brighton from occurring.
Back in the 1960s, a great new alternative to traditional clay drainpipes was introduced – pitch fibre drains. These became largely popular among homeowners and business owners leading up their eventual banning in the late 1980s. Numerous older residential properties and company buildings utilise these drains as at the time they were a lot more affordable than their clay counterparts.
With a lifespan of 40 years, many pitch fibre drains in Brighton are now starting to deteriorate causing all manner of issues for those whose properties utilise them. As the name suggests, pitch fibre drains were produced using wood pulp and bitumen. While more affordable, they weren’t as strong or durable as ones constructed using clay. Nowadays, building firms are not permitted to install pitch fibre drains, but their presence is still felt by many property owners up and down the country.
Delamination and ovaling are just two issues that pitch fibre drains in Brighton have a tendency to develop. Often, the pipes buckle under the weight of the ground above, or begin to absorb water causing the shape to warp. This results in a drainpipe that is narrowed making it easier to block.
Leaking water can also attract tree roots that penetrate the damaged walls of the drains and cause them to leak more as well as resulting in more blocked drains in Brighton. If the bitumen layer comes away, parts of the pipe will no longer be water tight. Call 24 Hour Emergency Services today to find out more.

There are so many things which can cause a blocked drainpipe and when blockages occur, the inconvenience this can cause cannot be overstated. Items such as nappies, sanitary pads and too much toilet roll can quickly block a toilet, preventing it from flushing correctly.
Our experts unclog two varieties of drains:
Fallen leaves are also a significant issue, especially in autumn. They get blown off the trees and accumulate in the guttering before being washed into the drains where they create an obstruction resulting in blocked drains in Brighton.
Internal drains are largely affected by objects placed into them either by accident or on purpose. Baby’s nappies are one example. Another example are toys which are often carelessly discarded by children down the toilet.
When the water in a sink will not drain away and it begins to smell this is a pretty good sign it is blocked. The reason it typically obstructs is due to the fact that small pieces of food items get washed into the plug hole and produce a clog.
