Common Drainage Problems

Blocked drains, unfortunately, are very common. Most drainage issues arise because of simple mistakes. Some of the most common problems that cause blocked drains are:

  • Food wastage
  • Coffee beans/crumbs
  • Tissue paper
  • Grease
  • General dirt build-up

Flushing such waste/items down your drain will eventually lead to blocked drains. While this may seem like a minor issue, over time it can become a costly call-out. Leaving a blocked drain would not be in your best interest, and simply pouring bleach down the drain will not solve all of your drainage problems.

Our Coastal Drains Guarantee

Here at Coastal, we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction, response rate and our tireless workforce. Regardless of how big or small your drainage problem may seem, we’re always here to help, even if it’s a simple phone-call query. Here are our three core promises:

A Recent Drainage Issue in Worthing

Our most recent problem in Worthing concerned a man who had encountered a flood in his kitchen during the early hours of the morning.

It was only when he woke up for work that he realised the extent of the problem, so, he gave us a call and we went down to his property in Worthing. We arrived to see that the kitchen was indeed flooded, though no serious damage had occurred yet.

Our team got to work on the issue and they quickly discovered that the source of the problem was simply a leak in one of the main pipes. It took our team just over an hour to address and fix the problem.

The customer thanked us for our efficiency and speed in dealing with the issue, and he was able to get to work on time.

Bathroom Here at Coastal Drains, we deal with all drainage issues that come our way. If you have any problems with your drains, including a blocked or damaged toilet, then we’re the company to call. We specialise in all types of drain repair service, offer emergency 24-hour callouts and insurance work.

Coastal Drains know from experience that having a blocked toilet is one of the most terrible conditions you could experience in a bathroom. The inconvenience, reduced hygiene and general discomfort blocked toilets bring is extremely unpleasant. Fixing a blocked toilet may seem quite simple but, often, it is caused by a more serious blockage further along the pipe system. That’s why, we would recommend you give us a call to come and unblock your toilet for you to prevent further damage.

Common Signs of a Blocked Toilet

If you think you have a blocked toilet, there are usually a couple of telling signs. Below are some of the most common indications there is a problem:

  • The water is taking a long time to drain.
  • The water fills up the bowl and overflows.
  • The toilet won’t flush or fill with water.

Common Items that Block Toilets

Here at Coastal Drains, we firmly believe that prevention is better than cure. That’s why, we offer advice to our customers so that they can prevent toilet blockages from happening in the future. Below are some of the top things that cause blockages. You should avoid flushing these down the toilet!

  • Excessive amounts of toilet paper for a single flush can cause a blocked toilet. Some varieties of toilet paper do not dissolve easily and can build-up over time in the pipes, eventually causing a horrible blockage.
  • Children throwing toys down the toilets can drop items which become lodged in the pipes.
  • Female sanitary items are a common culprit of the blocked toilet and can block drains very quickly.
  • Diapers and baby wipes are items that should never be flushed down the toilet as their bulky size means they cause instant clogs and considerable damage to your bathroom pipes.

Highdown Gardens

Highdown Gardens are one of those stunning hidden gems that, unless you have been told about, you would be unlikely to just stumble across. We want to make sure you know about this absolute beauty of a walking location.

There are usually workshops available and you could even hire out one of these places for a birthday party, it is a great way to keep everyone entertained and you can take your painted pottery piece home with you to keep as a memento.

Bramber Castle

However, this one wall gives you a real idea of how imposing and magnificent this castle once was. You can also take walks in the surrounding countryside for some stunning views. This historic site is well worth a visit, even if it’s just to reimagine what the castle once used to look like.

What once was a council waste tip has since been created into a large (45 metre) open space, offering a range of sport and leisure activities around an eight-acre boating lake. As well as its boating lake, the park includes a miniature railway, go-karting and golf. There is even a playground specifically for children with disabilities. This pleasure park perfectly caters for everyone’s needs.

Outdoors there are a variety of children’s rides, including teacups, trampolines, the Disney Express Train Ride, flying jets and a bouncy slide. Indoors, there are various classic and modern arcade games. Included at the Entertainment Centre is also the Lido’s restaurant which offers a great traditional sea menu, or you can choose to dine at the café for a more casual selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks. The bandstand is used for live performances during the summer months also which is a great attraction for many!

Tangmere Military and Aviation Museum

The Tangmere Military Aviation Museum is home to an impressive display of historical aircraft and aviation memorabilia, stretching from the First World War through to the Cold War. Famed for its illustrious service from 1916 through to the post-war years, it was opened by a group of aviation enthusiasts in 1982 to educate present and future generations in military aviation as well as serving as a memorial for those airmen and airwomen who gave their lives in the service of this country.
