A blockage will not only stop your toilet from working properly, but can cause unpleasant odours and an overflow of water. If you have a blocked toilet and need help quickly, our fully trained engineers are on call 24/7 to provide toilet unblocking services for residential and commercial customers.
As well as unblocking your toilet, our specialist team can investigate the cause, so if old pipework or a slow-moving septic system is causing your toilet to clog, we can suggest a solution.
We’ll spare you and avoid going into too much detail here, as we’re sure you can imagine the most common cause of blocked toilet pipes. However, other blockages are commonplace and easy to prevent.
Toilet paper is the most familiar culprit when it comes to a blocked toilet, but sanitary products are another regular offender. The type of drainage system at a property determines what can and can’t be flushed through the system.
If you’ve got a blocked toilet, you’re going to know about it pretty quickly and won’t want to delay getting it fixed. Early signs that you’re having trouble with your toilet waste pipe can include the water draining slowly after flushing, rising water levels in the bowl, overflowing, gurgling sounds, unpleasant lingering smells, and an overflowing gully trap.
If you notice any of the above, it’s best to call an expert sooner rather than later to avoid any unpleasant catastrophes that you’ll have to clear up.
At Drain Doctor, we provide all kinds of drain unblocking and drain repair services, so no matter what’s causing your blocked toilet, we’ll be able to have it working in no time.
We respond quickly to prevent the toilet blockage worsening and further disrupting your household. In the first instance, we will carry out an investigation to identify the cause of the problem so we can then provide the best solution. Depending on the cause of the blockage, we might need to use drain jetting, rotary mechanical drain cleaning, excavation methods, gully cleaning, or suggest another solution. Whatever the problem, you can rest assured that we will fix it.
We understand the desire to fix the problem yourself quickly, and while we have great admiration for committed DIY-ers, the problem is often too complex to be solved by drain unblocker or a plunger. If the signs of the blockage are evident or worsening, it’s time to call in a drainage expert. The earlier you call for help, the easier and less disruptive the fix might be.
