Blocked drains can be a real pain at any time. Often caused by too many foreign objects being flushed away down the down the toilet or washed down the sink, a build up will begin to block pipes and drains leading to potentially serious future problems.

It’s important to know what are the actual signs of your drains being blocked are though and as such we have created this article to give you a little help.

Does Your Toilet Flush Properly?

The most common sign of blocked drains is an inability to flush the toilet properly. If you attempt to flush your toilet, only to find that the bowl is filling up with water rather than draining away, there is every chance that there is a blockage somewhere in the system.

In complete contrast to this, if the water does not fill up to its regular point, this can also be an indication that your pipe might be blocked.

Is Water Coming Back Through The Plug Hole?

Have you noticed water coming back through the plug hole when you take a shower? If this is happening to you, there is every chance of there being a blockage.

Strange Gurgling Sounds!

Have you noticed any bubbles or unusual gurgling sounds emanating from your sink or plug hole?

If you’re experiencing any of these in your home then you should get a drainage specialist out to look at the problem.

Not a Problem Which Will Go Away

Unfortunately, blockages are not something you can just leave and hope they go away. They will just get worse, either gradually or quite quickly, depending on the blockage.

Drainage specialists such as J&P Group can use high powered jetting systems that will be capable of dislodging any blockages.

We will also be able to utilise special CCTV equipment so we can look into your drainage system, making sure there are no cracks or blockages.
