Outside Drains

Outside Drains Poole

24 Hour Emergency Services believe prevention is the best strategy when it comes to reducing the chances of Poole outside drains becoming blocked. The primary thing is not putting any items down these drains. When it is blustery or there is a lot of rain, a considerable amount of yard debris can get washed down the outside drains in Poole.

Leaves and other items can easily become caught up and reduce the chances of the water from passing through effectively. Keeping the back garden clean and consistently sweeping up the leaves will minimise the risk of a build-up in the drainpipes as these are what normally create a clog.

Having a fertiliser stack is something many gardeners advise. Whenever you scoop your leaves up, you can add them to the compost stack. Garden litter – including plastic bags – can cause blockages in the outside pipes in Poole. The easiest way to reduce the chances of this is to keep the backyard clear of such litter.

Pitched Fibre Drains

Pitched Fibre Drains Poole

Pitched fibre drains Poole were definitely the most inexpensive option which is why they were incredibly popular throughout the 1970s. Many older households as well as business properties make use of pitch fibre drains as there were installed prior to their eventual phasing out in the late 1980s.

Having a lifetime of 40 years, pitched fibre drains in Poole were an incredibly popular choice for those home builders and property owners that were searching for an inexpensive way of installing or mending drains.

Unfortunately, these Poole pitched fibre drains were actually not manufactured using long lasting terra cotta based materials and plastics were simply not as advanced as they are now. The pitched fibre drains were manufactured from wood pulp and bitumen instead.

Water flows down carrying the various things we flush along with it when we use the drains. Whenever drain pipes eventually become misshapen – as happens with pitch fibre drains with time –the water can certainly not flow properly and the water pipes end up being blocked.

This can lead to water leaking from the pipes which can cause issues for buildings and, in extreme cases, causing subsidence. The leaking water can also attract tree roots that penetrate the damaged walls of the drains and cause them to leak more and block up.

Waste Drain Blockage

Emergency drainage experts

Waste Drain Blockage Poole

One of the initial signs that you are experiencing waste drain blockage in Poole is that the water in your bathroom sink, bathtub, shower or toilet will not drain away properly even after a significant amount of time has passed.

Clogs to the drainage system could be found near the plug hole. If this is the case, then you might be able to fix the issue yourself with a plunger or perhaps an approved waste pipe unblocker from the shop. However, should the situation continue and the water will show no signs of receding properly, or the nasty smell continues, then your issue may be a Poole waste drain blockage located deep in the pipes.

Water from a broken sewer pipe flooding into your backyard or property is lots of people’s idea of a nightmare. If a damaged or broken pipe is put under additional high pressure by a blockage, then the water will need to go someplace and at times it streams out.

To prevent the bad situation of a toilet turning into the ordeal of a flooded bathroom, just contact the expert contractors at 24 Hour Emergency Services who are always on call on 01202 348207.

What Produces A Blocked Drain?

What Produces A Blocked Drain?

There are a lot of causes that may trigger an obstructed drainpipe. Nappies, children’s toys and sanitary towels all get flushed down the toilet, despite the fact that they should never be disposed of in this manner. That might trigger the drains to become obstructed up after some time has passed for the build-up to occur.

Typically there are two kinds of drainpipes that we are contacted to unblock:

  • External Drains
  • Interior Drains including the bathroom, toilet and kitchen

One of the biggest causes of blocked outdoors drains are trees. The leaves and twigs can very easily get washed into the drains and they get caught upon twigs that have actually also washed down into the drain and this causes a clog.

With inside pipes, the issues are more frequently a result of what has been put into them. The children’s toys are a lot more common than you may expect because toddlers find it fascinating to see their toys disappear in a whirlpool.

Food items and lard will also build up as time goes on that can eventually trigger a clog in the kitchen drainpipe. That is really annoying for the homeowner as the sink commonly backs up with filthy and stinking water that will not flow away properly.

Sorting the blocked drains is something our team can always assist you with. Give the experts at 24 Hour Emergency Services a call on 01202 348207 for any issues with blocked drains in Poole – we are here to help.
