Blockages.

If you think there is a blockage, please check the information below and your next steps.

You may have a blockage if:

  • You find it difficult to flush your toilet.
  • Your sink or bath empties very slowly.
  • You notice a bad smell coming from your drains.

Blockages in pipes can be nasty, stopping waste from leaving your property. When wastewater is unable to flow away it can come back up from the toilet or sink, flooding your home.
