Blocked Toilets

Toilet Unblocking for homes and businesses in Essex, Suffolk and London

There is nothing more frustrating than a blocked toilet that will only partly flush or, worse still, won’t flush at all. At Drain Maintain, we have the expertise and the manpower to solve your bathroom drainage problems quickly and effectively, clearing blockages and restoring your toilet to its usual working order.

A toilet blockage at your home or business can be both disruptive and unpleasant, creating unwanted hygiene issues and inconveniencing family members or staff. Our team of highly-skilled drainage engineers will act quickly to minimise the time your toilet is out-of-action by locating the source of the blockage and clearing it using whatever means necessary.

Emergency call-outs available for blocked toilets

With knowledgeable drainage engineers available at any hour of the day or night, help is always at hand for blocked toilet emergencies. We always have professionals on-call throughout Essex, Suffolk and the London area ready to come to your home or place of business to put a stop to blocked or overflowing toilets.

Please note that while we don’t charge our customers for call-outs ordinarily, there may be an additional charge applied for emergency call-outs to residential and commercial customers outside normal hours.

How we unblock your toilets

Although the Drain Maintain team are highly-skilled in providing a range of technical drainage solutions, we operate a ‘no job too small’ policy for our customers in Colchester and throughout Essex, Suffolk and the London area. We’ll do our best to find a speedy resolution to your toilet troubles, usually via the following method:

  1. We will arrive on-site and carry out an immediate assessment of the toilet and attempt to locate the toilet’s waste pipe.
  2. Once we’ve located the cause of the blockage, we will attempt to clear it using water jetting or an internal pipe cleaner, depending on the location of the blockage.
  3. After clearing the blockage, we will thoroughly test the toilet, often using tracing dye, to ensure the system is flowing well before disinfecting the area thoroughly.
  4. We will seek to provide professional advice to our customers on the best methods for keeping toilets and drainage systems free-flowing in the months and years to come.

What are the common causes of a blocked toilet?

  • Using toilets to dispose of cotton products that absorb liquid and can quickly build up in the pipes.
  • Kids throwing large items down the toilet such as toys or food.
  • Nappies and baby wipes wrongly disposed of down a toilet can quickly clog your drainage system.
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Simply using too much toilet paper and attempting to flush it away all at once.
