Regardless of the problem you have with your drains, our team of experts at Flow Drains UK can help. We are qualified and experienced in a number of different areas, so you don’t have to call out two companies to complete the job. Our team offer an extensive range of services from drain rodding to concrete removal, so you will only have minimal disruption.
If your blocked drain is an emergency, it’s likely that we will use drain rodding to unblock the drain, due to the process being straightforward and quick. When we arrive at your property, we will assess the problem that your drain is experiencing. If we can use drain rodding to unblock your drain, then we will. Our team have years of experience implementing this technique, so you can rest assured that the job will be done it little time and we won’t leave any mess at your property.
When we use drain rodding, it involves sending steel rods into the drain with the blockage, so we can dislodge the obstruction and restore free flowing again. This is the technique that we will typically use when we are faced with a blocked drain, but if we feel that a different method is more appropriate then drain rodding, we will use that instead to solve the problem. We find that blocked drains are usually caused by things being flushed down the toilet that shouldn’t be, such as baby wipes, toilet fresheners and an unnecessary amount of tissue. For our drain rodding service, we charge £80 for the first hour and £80 for every recurring hour for businesses. For houses, we will still charge the initial £80 for rodding, but this is only a one-off payment.
Drain jetting is an extremely effective way to clear blocked drains, due to the power that a high-pressure water jetter obtains. We will generally use our drain jetting equipment if we are faced with a tough blockage or if there are a number of bends that we need to negotiate in the drains. We are always ready for any blockage, as all of our team have drain jetting equipment on the back of their vans. If we need to implement this technique, we will always ensure that we conduct the process in a safe manner and adhere to the guidelines of using the drain jetting equipment. Depending on the cause of the blockage, we will utilise different nozzles on the end of the water jetter so we can thoroughly clear your drain.
For drain jetting, we charge an initial £120 payment for the first hour for businesses and £80 for every hour after that. If we are called to a house, we will only charge £120 and no additional payments.
Unblocking Toilets, Sinks And Baths
If you have a blocked toilet, sink or bath, there will be a number of signs, such as the toilet water taking ages to go down or the water level going up when you are running a bath or using other taps, gurgling noises in the sink or even unpleasant smells, or sewage coming from a manhole. Despite there being many guides on how to unblock toilets, baths and sinks, and it may seem tempting to try these, we would recommend that you employ a company to solve the problem for you. Not only does this get the blockage cleared quicker, but if the problem causing the blockage is going to require further work, an experienced team will already be at your property to solve it immediately.
If our technicians feel that a CCTV survey is necessary, we will carry out a camera inspection free of charge. The technology enables our team to inspect your drains and the sewers below efficiently and therefore put together an effective plan of action. When the camera is in the drain or sewer, it sends the monitor images back that clearly show what the obstruction is. By using this technology, it provides a cost-effective way of both inspecting drains and providing a solution, due to less time being required to clear the blocked drain. What’s more, by using CCTV surveys, we can spot small issues before they turn into big problems.
Removing excess limescale can be a frustrating and time-consuming job. Instead of reaching for the acid to remove it, we can help to eliminate the limescale more efficiently and in a shorter space of time. With some of the acids being too dangerous and hazardous to use, we can come to your property and seamlessly conduct limescale removal for you.
If you require concrete removal, we can help! When we arrive at your property, we will successfully conduct concrete removal by using our high-pressure water jetter to eradicate any damaged concrete. From here, new concrete can be put down. By using our jetter, we can use different nozzles to effectively complete concrete removal.
In some cases, you may need drainpipe replacement or even repair, if the pipes are damaged, collapsed or worn. Fortunately, we can implement this for you. We will investigate where the repair or replacement is needed and install the new pipe. We can even repair the existing drainpipe and always try and keep the cost as low as possible for you.
In addition to repairing and replacing drainpipes, our team are more than capable of drainpipe lining. Some drain problems can result in leaks, structural damage and even flooding, which is why you may need to opt for our drainpipe lining services. We can fix any pipes that are cracked and address the problem in hand, whilst reducing any future issues.
Septic Tank Emptying
A lot of food waste can end up in your septic tank, as well as wastewater and water from your shower and sink. This can result in quite an unpleasant solution in the tank. Your septic tank doesn’t treat the waste itself; it separates the waste into different layers, which heads for the soakaway system. The more soluble produce remains in the tank, which is why it needs to be regularly cleared out. We will use a specially designed hose to suction out the excess waste left in the tank and remove it for you.
