How to unblock an outside drain



When you have a blocked outside drain Southwark, you have to know first the reason that led to the blockage. It can be disposable wipes and hygiene products that may cause the blockage. There are too many hygiene products that may become a problem. Anything that cannot be composted may block the drain and it will need to be fixed at a certain point. Normally the blockage takes place where the pipe takes a sharp turn and the water may slow down. This may be the back of a house and this is where the problem may take place most of the time since the pipes may go through a 90-degree bend and can join up with the main public drain that is found at the front of a road. How to unblock the blocked outside drain Southwark may depend on the severity of the blockage and what is causing it. Drain rods can be made with bamboo, but they can also be made with bendy fiberglass, and they come in the length of over a meter and also half that length. They may also double as chimney sweeping tools. They are normally simple and cheap and are available from hardware stores. You need to have a screw tip for the business end. This may look like the bit of a corkscrew and it can help to get the drain blockage out. The first step is to find the part where it has been blocked. Once you identify the location, you can use the drain rods or other methods to try to clear the blockage. If you are unable to clear the blockage on your own, you may need to call in a professional plumber to solve the problem for you quickly so that you can get back to your daily routine.
