Drainage Cumbria has been providing drain unblocking services to the people of Cumbria for decades. We have regularly updated our equipment and methods to ensure that we can deal with any type of blockage. One major challenge when it comes to unblocking a drain outside is access to the drainage system.
In many cases, the drain system is underneath soil, concrete, or other structures which make it impossible for one to access it. This is where our team comes in. We have the necessary equipment and knowledge to access any drain system, no matter how deeply it is buried.
One of the first things you need to do when you suspect a blockage in your outside drain is to isolate the need for unblocking. You may notice that water is taking longer than usual to drain from your sink or that your toilet is taking a long time to flush. These are signs that you need to unblock your drain.
It is important to isolate the need and locate the drain that is blocked. In some cases, the blockage may be within the property and not in the outside drain. In such cases, we advise our clients not to try unblocking it themselves but to call in professionals.
When unblocking a drain outside, you can either use chemical cleaners or physical tools to remove the debris blocking the drain. Chemical cleaners are best only if the blockage is not physical, i.e., if it is caused by sediment, soap, or grease.
However, if the blockage is caused by physical debris such as leaves, twigs, or other items, chemical cleaners may not be effective. In such cases, we recommend using a hose or physical tools to remove the debris blocking the drain.
To unblock an outside drain, one of the best methods is to use a high-pressure hose. This method involves inserting the hose into the drain and pumping it with water at high pressure. The water removes any debris blocking the drain and the hose also has a nozzle that can be used to blast away any stubborn blockages.
Another method is to use physical tools such as a drain snake or auger. This method involves inserting the tool into the drain and twisting it to remove any debris blocking it. This method is more effective in removing stubborn blockages but requires some skill.
If your outside drain is blocked, it is important to cover it to prevent any further debris from entering it. This is because any debris or water that enters the drain will worsen the blockage.
To cover the outside drain, you can use a drain cover, a piece of wood, or any other material that can fit into the drain. Once the drain is covered, it is important to call in professionals to unblock it.
In general, if you are unsure about how to unblock your outside drain, it is best to call in professionals like Drainage Cumbria. We have the necessary experience, tools, and knowledge to unblock any type of drain quickly and efficiently.
Trying to unblock the drain yourself can be dangerous and may cause further damage to the drainage system. In addition, it may be difficult to identify the cause of the problem and the best solution to fix it.
