Drain Unblockers can solve Your drainage problems
The big debate has been about the Somerset levels drainage and river cleaning and dredging. However, the Somerset council and authorities should also be looking into the Drainage issues that had occurred prior to the flooding. Due to the strong winds and debris waste making it’s way into the drains and pipes followed by heavy rain the initial street level drainage was not efficiently working to help with the water levels.
Regular Drain Cleaning
As most residents know the drains need to be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent debris build-up and waste clogging the pipes. An annual drain cleaning contract is probably the best and most financial efficient method to keep all drains flowing efficiently regardless to the time of year and seasons. During the Autumn in the UK there is always a lot of leaf and branch waste whereas during the Summer there is just general public waste that enters the drainage systems.
The Winter months we tend to have some snow in certain parts of the UK but this winter there has hardly been a frost. This should have helped with water levels but due to the amount of rainfall the drainage and rivers have simply been in-undated.
Drainage maintenance starts from within the home. Preventing Blocked Drains in Toilets, en-suites, showers and kitchen waste pipes, U-bends to general kitchen waste. If you’ve been having slow draining water from any sinks or shower cubicles then there may be underlying drainage issues. If the toilet water level rises rapidly when the flush is pulled then you may have problems further down the pipeline waste pipe.
Drainage rodding is not a simple method to clear your waste pipes and drainage as more damage can be caused without proper use of such rods.
Pushing the blockage further up the drains will no doubt become an even bigger problem later on. Cracked pipes or collapsed drains will also give the home owner the thought that the blockage has been resolved only to find out later that an even bigger problem was caused by using the cleaning methods with forceful nature.
Drain Cleaning Prevention is better than Cure
Blocked Drains can be cleared with commercial cleaners and if household waste or toilet paper blockages as such use of strong toilet cleaners and drain unblocking chemicals can clear the problem and monthly use will prevent the drain issue returning.
