Blocked drains have a few tell-tale signs from when the blockage starts to it getting progressively worse, which will create increasingly troublesome problems from bad smells, odd noises, and slow draining to no draining at all.

While you may look to fix your indoor plumbing with plungers and chemicals, once the outdoor drains become blocked it is time to call in one of DHC’s drainage specialists.

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 minimal to no digging.

Common Causes

No matter where the blockage occurs in the drains there are three areas they start from. Be mindful of what you are putting down your drains and you can help keep them 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.

Get Ready For Winter

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

Drain Maintenance

Blocked drains are frustrating and discomforting to deal with. Regular maintenance can prolong the life of your drains however and with a simple yearly check up we can remove most issues whilst there are still small enough to not cause you a problem. Getting to the problem this early means you avoid the inconvenience of them developing into a larger situation that could result in a flood.

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

Hale Village Blocked Drain Case Study

A Local Drainage Specialist with Local Knowledge

Something we see as really important when treating drainage problems is local knowledge. Below is an example of how we fixed blocked drains for one of our customers in Hale Village.

How did it start

We received a call regarding a blocked drain in Hale Village where a business owner reported there was no drainage at the property. They asked for us to come and investigate the cause and whether it was a blockage.

The client needed a fast response but also could not afford to close their business so requested we try not to dig their car park up

Fixing the problem

With the cause identified we proceeded to fix the drain using drain jetting to remove the fat build up. We also were able to advise the business owner what had caused the issue so he could inform his kitchen staff to not pour fat down the drains to avoid future problems.

Identifying the problem

We suspected a blocked drain but before carrying out any work we needed to both be sure and to know where the blockage was. If it was a blockage we also needed to know how it had been caused to effectively fix the problem and help the customer prevent future blockages.

Using our specialist CCTV drain survey equipment we could satisfy all requirements including the clients request we avoid digging at the property.

The survey identified the culprit of the blockage, a build-up of fat had caught various waste from the property.

The result

The blockage of the drain at the Hale Village property was identified and removed. The business owner also put processes in place to avoid future blockages and requested we undertake a yearly survey and drain clean to keep things working properly.
