Blocked drains may start with the odd noise or occasional bad smell, but as blockages build-up, they can turn into much larger problems, eventually ending with entire blockages and flooding.

DHC has built up a robust experience gained over many years in dealing with blocked drains, allowing us to fix the problem quickly, efficiently, and wherever possible with no digging.

Stopping Blockages

The majority of blockages stem from three common locations. By being aware of these issue points you can keep your drains flowing for longer.

  • From the Kitchen:
    • Food waste such as vegetable scraps
    • Coffee grounds or tea leaves
    • Traditional soaps (which contain greases and fats)
  • From the bathroom:
    • Hair
    • Feminine hygiene products
    • Non-flushable paper
    • Traditional soaps (which contain greases and fats)
    • Excessive amounts of dirt
  • Outside the property:
    • Tree roots
    • Excessive garden waste such as leaves and soil.

Winter Issues To Watch For

The colder, wetter months in winter and autumn put additional strain on drains. Problems to be aware of during this time include:


  • Freezing and thawing of pipes resulting in breaks and cracks
  • Ice build-up catching waste
  • Fat and oil solidifying in pipes due to the cold weather

Coupled with heavy rainfall, unmaintained drains can quickly become overwhelmed and problems arise

Annual maintenance, protecting against blocked drains Davyhulme West

Drain Maintenance

Must customers we work with have rarely thought about their drains and why would they. Typically they are dirty, smelly and out of sight. But this is exactly why you should give some thought to them because when something begins to go wrong, you’ll likely not know until a major issue comes to the surface in the form of sewage and waste.

A simple annual check is usually all that is required to keep things in fully working order.

Partial Blockages

Partially blocked drains, or ones in need of maintenance, will continue to allow water to drain away overtime. This makes them harder to spot but there are signs to look out for however;

  • Slow draining, or standing water
  • Unpleasant smells from the drains
  • Noises when water drains away can suggest blockages further down the pipe

Case Study Of Blocked Drain Davyhulme West

A Local Drainage Specialist with Local Knowledge

Something our experience has taught us is a local knowledge of an areas specific drainage setup is really important. Changing regulations, standards and materials mean Manchester’s drains can be a real miss match of different installations.

Below is an example of how we fixed blocked drains for one of our customers in Davyhulme West.

How did it start

A Davyhulme West business owner contacted us due to water not draining at their property. They asked we come and check out the problem and find the cause of the blockage.

As this was a business premises they also wanted to avoid digging to locate the problem.

Fixing the problem

With the cause identified we used drain jetting to dislodge the build-up of waste. We also conducted a complete clean of the inside of the drain to help prevent against future blockages.

Identifying the problem

Straight away we knew we had a blockage on our hands but still needed to find out where it had occurred in the customer drainage setup. To do this we undertook a CCTV drain survey which also meant we avoided any digging.

The survey identified leaves and soil had clogged up the drain after some especially heavy rainfall.

The result

The blockage of the drain at the Davyhulme West property was identified and removed, returning the drain to full, free flowing working order again.

As with the CCTV survey, the drain jetting was done with no digging needed, leaving the property untouched at the surface.
