The Cost of Blocked Drains

Drains can become blocked due to a number of reasons. Over the course of time living at a property, tree roots can permeate the pipe below the ground – which can further block the pipe. Unflushable and undrainable items, such as cooking oils and fats, wet wipes, and nappies will also contribute to the blockage of a drain, and the buildup of a fatberg which can severely block sewage systems further down the line.

When a drain is blocked, there are clear signs in and around the affected property. If your property is experiencing any sort of drainage blockage, the risks of damage to the property and the health of the inhabitants could be severe. These risks are even more extreme if sewage is actively pouring into the property – as this poses an extreme risk to health and safety.

How Much Does a Drain Unblocking Service Cost?

When it comes to unblocking drains, one size doesn’t fit all. The cost of our drain unblocking service is tailored to the unique needs of your situation. Several factors come into play, such as the size of the blocked area, the severity of the blockage, and the specific service required to resolve the issue.

For minor blockages that can be quickly cleared, the cost will naturally be lower. However, more complex issues that require advanced techniques like high-pressure water jetting or CCTV surveys may incur additional charges. Rest assured, we always aim to provide the most cost-effective solution without compromising on quality. Before commencing any work, we conduct a thorough assessment to determine the best course of action. This allows us to provide you with an accurate quote, ensuring there are no surprises when it comes to billing.

Can You Repair the Drain Yourself?

If you own a pressure washer and appropriate safety equipment, you may be able to complete smaller-scale drain jetting and unblocking yourself. If you find that the blockage is smaller in size, and located near the entrance to the drain, then it may be worth pressure jetting or removing the blockage yourself. However, beware that there may be a larger blockage further inside the pipe.

If you do try to undertake drain unblocking yourself, you also run the risk of dislodging the blockage in a bad way, and worsening the problem as a whole by creating a larger blockage further into the drain – creating a bigger problem which will require a costly solution.

The Risks of DIY Solutions

Because the typical domestic water jet is not as powerful as the industry standard drain jets in use by the professionals at Coastal Drains, you may find that pressure washers and other domestic water jets do not provide sufficient force to clear a blocked drain yourself.

If you find that you’re unable to unblock the drain yourself, or even if you’ve tried to solve it and made the problem worse; our expert engineers will be more than happy to help. Calling in one of our Sussex-based professionals is always the best, and most cost-effective, route of solving most drainage problems. Our expert drainage engineers have over 10 years in this industry, so they’re the best at providing solutions to problems like these.
