London Plumbers & Drain Cleaning Specialists

A blocked drain can cause more than an inconvenience. You may notice foul smells arising from your plumbing, or sinks and toilets taking forever to wash down waste. If this is the case, it is highly likely that you require drain unblocking services to prevent further damage and complications. Our team of experienced professionals are on call 24/7/365 days a year to be there when commercial and domestic customers need our help.

What to do in an emergency

Blocked drains are one of the most common domestic plumbing problems. Whether it’s a kitchen sink that won’t clear, a shower with standing water, or a dishwasher that stops mid-cycle, blocked drains slow you down and can create a costly mess.

Getting your drains flowing again can be a quick fix. But sometimes the issue is more serious and requires the help of a skilled plumber. That’s why if your water isn’t draining the way it should, it’s important to get it looked at right away.



About Blocked Drain

We understand that your needs can change last minute, this is why we can adapt our drain services in London quickly to ensure success. Damaged, cracked drains and pipes need to be repaired as soon as possible to avoid any further blockages. By using our CCTV drain survey service, we can have any blocked drain resolve quickly before they cause you and your family further issues.


Causes of a Blocked Drain

Drains in your home can become blocked for many different reasons. Often the cause is grease, hair, food, or other materials building up in your pipes over time.
If you have an older home, your pipes may be corroded, or a tree root could be interfering with your drainage.
And in winter, it’s possible for pipes to freeze.
Identifying the cause of your blocked drain is the first step in repairing the problem – without risking further damage to your plumbing.

If you notice any of the following, you may have a blocked drain or pipe:

  • Slow-draining sink, bathtub, or shower
  • A bad smell coming from your sink, bathtub or shower drain
  • Your toilet is bubbling
  • Water on the floor next to your toilet, sink, bathtub, shower or washing machine
  • A washing machine or dishwasher that stops mid-cycle
  • A backed-up cleanout

Slow running and smelly drains are more than just an inconvenience. If they’re not fixed quickly and professionally, they could become a messy and costly repair.



Prevention & Troubleshooting

Looking for ways to avoid a blocked drain? Here are some preventative measures you can take to help keep your drains running smoothly:

Kitchen Sinks:
  • Run very hot water down the drain followed by a bit of washing up dish detergent to try and soften the block.
  • After a few minutes, gently use a plunger and flush with more hot water.
Showers, Bathtubs, or Bathroom Sinks:
  • Mix one cup of vinegar and one cup of baking soda.
  • Pour mixture down your drain and wait ten minutes.
  • Flush with very hot water from a kettle.
Main Drain Pipe:
  • If you suspect your main drain pipe is blocked, we recommend calling a professional plumber to identify and repair the problem

If the source of your blocked drain is not visible and you’ve tried these troubleshooting tips without success, it’s time to call in a professional. At Pace, we can use a CCTV camera to quickly and efficiently identify the cause of your blocked drains.
