At Biskon Plumbing our team of experienced plumbers are drain experts who are available to clear your blocked drains 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Blocked drains occur for a variety of reasons and are not only extremely inconvenient, but can also lead to expensive leaks or bursts if left unattended.

Common causes of blocked drains

Some common causes of blocked drains include the build-up of silt, hair, food scraps and grease, as well as the presence of foreign objects such as toiletries or children’s toys. Drains can also become blocked due to tree roots and plant debris.

A clogged drain can pose potential health and safety risks. Blocked drains may lead to the pooling of stagnant water, which can act as a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Backed-up sewerage pipes are particularly hazardous as bacteria is already present and there is a high risk of contamination. Flooding due to blockages may result in structural damage to your home or office building, as well as compromised electrical wires.

We handle all facets of draining

Biskon Plumbing use a variety of methods to unblock drains including the electric eel (or plumbers snake) and hydro jetting tools. The electric eel has been used by plumbers since the 1930s and is very effective at clearing blockages. It does this by using a powerful cutter attached to the end of a flexible rod. The cutter scours the inside of your pipes to help remove build-ups of grease and silt, and slices up any foreign objects that may be present. Hydro jetting tools are a great, non-abrasive alternative to the electric eel. They work by using forward and reverse high-pressure water jets, which propel them through your pipes and flush out the cause of the blockage. Hydro jetting tools are very time efficient and will help you avoid costly pipe repairs.

At Biskon, we don’t just unblock drains, but deal with all areas of draining including repairs, realigning and replacement. Our expert plumbers are committed to providing you with the best possible solution, no matter what your drain emergency.

We can then use the high-resolution CCTV footage to determine the best method to clear the affected area. CCTV technology is non-invasive and eliminates the need for costly excavation during testing. We also use CCTV to detect other pipework problems such as cracks and corrosion. By employing Biskon’s CCTV drain inspection services you can avoid unnecessary site work, saving you time and money.
