Emergency drain unblocking

Our engineers can deal with a wide range of emergency drain services so whatever your problem, you can know that we will have the skills and expertise to fix it on the same day.

Emergency drain clearance and emergency drain unblocking

A blocked drain can initially seem like just an annoyance but very often, blocked drains are actually an emergency situation. Blocked drains can very quickly lead to problems that won't only affect your home or business but can also negatively affect your health.

You might notice blocked drains first when you see that your kitchen sink or toilet starts to drain more slowly. This is, of course, annoying but it is also a sign that you need to get the problem fixed as quickly as possible.

It can be tempting to try and fix the drains yourself but very often it is a better idea to bring in a professional from the outset as you may not notice additional problems and damage that could cause issues later down the line.

Blocked drain health issues

A blocked drain means that water is no longer flowing through the plumbing as it normally would. Because water is very effective at absorbing unpleasant odours, when it stops flowing through your pipes, you are likely to notice rancid and smelly drains.

Alongside these foul smells, your health may also be in danger. Any water that is left in a fully blocked drain will be stagnant. And stagnant water is a ripe breeding ground for a range of harmful bacteria. This can include Legionella (which causes legionnaires disease) and Heliobacter bacteria. Because the water isn't flowing away, the bacteria can diffuse around your property and cause serious illness.

Stagnant water will also attract pests and mould, which can both cause health issues for anyone living or working in the property.

Blocked drain structural issues

Blocked drains don't just cause health problems but they can also lead to serious damage to your home or business. Drainage systems are carefully designed to channel water in specific directions to take it away from your building.

Blocked drains mean that the water will no longer travel along the predetermined channels. But water will always find a way out if there is one, so this means that it can seep out to other areas beneath the building and, over time, lead to damage to the foundation and structure.

Blocked drains can also lead to leaks and burst pipes which can leave you with flooded rooms and areas within the property.

If you don't call in drain clearance services for drain unblocking early on, the damage that can be caused to your home or business can lead to a much higher cost than the drain unblocking would have done. Add to that the potential for serious health problems for yourself, your family, or your employees and you can easily see why calling in emergency drain services is something that should be done as soon as you notice a blocked drain.

At Rider Drains, our skilled drain engineers will give you an emergency response as soon as possible to fix your drainage issue before it starts to cause more serious problems. We will use high-pressure water to clear any blockages in your drains and pipes

Blocked toilet

A blocked toilet is a particular issue because it can be so unpleasant and the risk of health issues arising from the blockage is much greater than for other types of drains. Whether your toilet needs unblocking, replacement parts, or a full toilet replacement, we will be able to find a solution to the issue quickly and efficiently.

Emergency drain repairs

Sometimes the problem with your drain is more serious than a simple blockage. A damaged drain or pipes will need immediate emergency attention from a professional local engineer to get them fixed as soon as possible to prevent flooding and other serious damage to your property,

There is a range of issues that can cause direct damage to your drains and pipes.

Tree root damage

It is always surprising to see how far tree roots can travel underneath the ground, and you won't usually pay them much thought unless they happen to start causing problems with your drains.

Tree roots can grow through small cracks in a pipe and from there can start to infiltrate the entire system, causing potentially a lot of damage along the way. Our engineers will be able to identify if your drainage problems are being caused by a tree root and will be able to remove it and repair the pipes.

Land movement and subsidence

Subsidence occurs because large amounts of groundwater are withdrawn from sediments, which leads to the small rocks falling in on themselves. This can create encrustations that damage your drainage system pipes.

These encrustations need to be removed as soon as possible by drainage engineers to prevent any further damage to the system and lining to repair the damage to the pipe to stop the leakage and drainage issues.

Heavy goods traffic

A large amount of heavy goods or industrial traffic above drains and pipes can over time lead to damage because of the weight. This can lead to pipe breakage or even full pipe collapse.

These are drainage emergencies that will need to be repaired as soon as possible, and the repairs will usually involve the need for an excavation of the area.

Frozen pipe problems

Another common cause of damage to your drainage system is frozen pipes. If your pipes aren't properly insulated, the water inside can freeze in very cold weather. When water freezes, it expands, which can cause the pipe to burst a seal.

Dig out and no-dig options

The only way to fix a broken pipe in the past was to excavate the area to find the area that is causing problems so that drain repairs can be done. There are still many cases where a dig out solution is needed, but with modern technology, the drainage problems can be found using other methods.

CCTV drain surveys use cameras fed through the pipes to find the exact location of the damage so that it can be necessary repairs can be made in a precise way. Some types of damage can be repaired using pipelining, which doesn't require digging out the pipes at all. This is a smaller job that will create less disruption for you and other users of your property.

Our drainage engineers are highly qualified and experienced with identifying and repairing damage to drains and pipes using both dig out and no-dig (using drain surveys) options. If you need an emergency drain service for drain repairs to any point in your drainage system, contact us as soon as possible and a local engineer will be with you as soon as possible.

Who is responsible for an external drain blockage?

It is almost always the homeowner who is responsible for unblocking any drains within your property boundary, beneath your home, in your garden, your driveway etc. These are all private drains. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to get any drains unblocked. In the case of rented properties “As stated in the Landlord and Tennant Act 1985, it is the landlord’s responsibility to maintain their drainage, pipes, and other areas of plumbing. If a drain becomes blocked through tenant misuse however, then the tenant is liable for the cost of repairs.

Drains that are located external to your property are called 'lateral drains'. Lateral drains are the pipes that carry wastewater away from your home and into a sewer. These are connected to your private drains, but they are not considered your responsibility. Lateral drains are publicly owned. If you'd like to speak to a drainage engineer for some free advice, we'd be happy to help.

Why is my drain blocked?

A blocked drain is generally due the build of fatbergs, debris, and inappropriate materials (e.g., sanitary products, wet wipes, cooking fat etc). Sometimes it can also be an obstruction like a tree root or a defect in the pipe.

Will bleach help a slow drain?

Bleach cannot dissolve built-up drain gunk. It cannot dissolve things like food waste, breadcrumbs, grease, and hair. Instead, pouring bleach into a clogged drain will make things worse.

Bleach is good for a lot of things around the home, but bleach is not good at unblocking drains. It is not strong enough to dissolve things like food, grease, and hair. It may even make things worse as it’s a thick viscous liquid.

Why are all my drains slow?

Your drains tend to slow down when there's a clog because most sewer line clogs do not suddenly block 100% of the pipe. Instead, debris accumulates over time, making it harder and harder for waste to move through. If all the drains in your home are starting to slow down, the problem is most likely a clogged sewer line.
