How do you fix a drain in the big smoke we hear you ask, well, there are two main methods – either excavation OR we use no dig technology such as a sleeve inserted within the drain. It depends which option is practical and cost effective based on appropriate investigations which we can complete for you.

Now we love a handy customer who wants to give it a go themselves – so much so that we’ve got a few tips from our engineers for what you can do to try and unblock your drains by a little DIY:

  1. If it’s a slow running sink, try hot water or a proprietary chemical from a DIY store.
  2. Hire a set of rods, always try to push the blockage down to the next manhole or drain downstream.
  3. If it’s a blocked gully, it might be simply leaves blocking the grill. Get a broom handle and scrape the gully grill, that might just to the trick.
