Drainage Unblocking In Gateshead

The tell-tale signs of a blocked drain are as follows:

  • Unpleasant Smells: a bad smell coming from the pipes can be a warning sign that there is an obstruction which is rotting in the pipe.
  • Toilet Water Level: When you flush the chain, you may notice that the water level in the toilet bowl initially rises. This is because the water from the cistern is entering the toilet bowl faster than it can leave because there is a blockage of some kind.
  • Slow drainage: once a plug is removed, the water should rush down the hole to escape. If it is sluggish, it is a sign the drain is blocked.
  • Strange Noises: when water makes a glugging noise as it drains from the sink, this is a tell-tale sign that it is trying to go past an obstruction.

Blocked Sewer Gateshead

Are you aware of the difference between a drain and a sewer? When we talk about drains, we mean the individual drainage system that is fitted into every property (whether it’s residential, commercial or industrial) to take away the used water. All fixtures such as toilets and sinks have an individual drain – as do appliances which use water such as washing machines and dishwashers. Every individual drain leads underground to the sewer. This network is responsible for carrying away all the dirty water and waste materials which are flushed away. As the sewer could be used by many different buildings at the same time, it must be able to allow large volumes of water to flow without any obstructions or backing up.

In comparison to drain unblocking, clearing a sewer blockage is an even more difficult undertaking. The main problem is that as the sewer serves so many different buildings or even a whole street, the whole area and its residents are directly affected. While the work is ongoing businesses may have to close or large buildings like skyscrapers may be put out of action. If you suspect that you have a blocked sewer in Gateshead, then the sooner you contact us, the better. If the problem is left, there is a danger that even more damage may be caused which will be both time-consuming and costly to repair later.
