Blocked Drains FAQs

What Are the Signs of a Blocked Drain?

Recognizing the signs of a blocked drain is crucial for early intervention. Common indicators include slow drainage in sinks, tubs, or showers, gurgling noises from your plumbing, unpleasant odours emanating from drains, and water backing up when you flush the toilet or use a sink.


What's the Best Home Remedy for Minor Blockages?

If you're experiencing a minor blockage in your plumbing system, try a home remedy before calling a professional. One such remedy involves using a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. To begin, pour one cup of baking soda down the affected drain, followed by a cup of vinegar. Wait a few minutes, then flush the drain with hot water.


However, it's important to note that this DIY solution is only effective for minor clogs and may not work for more severe blockages. If the problem persists or worsens, it's advisable to seek professional plumbers to avoid causing further damage to your plumbing system.



Can I Use Chemical Drain Cleaners for Blocked Drains?

While chemical drain cleaners are readily available and can be effective in clearing blockages, they come with potential downsides. The harsh chemicals can harm pipes over time, potentially leading to corrosion and damage. Moreover, some chemical cleaners are not eco-friendly.

It's often best to consult a professional plumber for safe and eco-friendly solutions to your blocked drain problems. They can provide expert advice and use specialized equipment to clear blockages without harming your plumbing.

How Often Should I Get My Drains Cleaned?

Keeping your drains in good condition requires regular preventive maintenance. While the frequency of drain cleaning can vary depending on usage and local conditions, it's generally advisable to schedule professional drain cleaning every 12 to 18 months. This proactive approach helps prevent blockages and ensures your drains remain in optimal working order.

    “I just want to say what a great plumber Terry was. My hot water system just crashed on me and so I called and made a same day booking. Terry was professional and very good at what he does. He replaced my hot water system on the same day, and with a great price too! 100% would recommend Wilco home services. Thanks again!”

    “We had to have our old drains ripped up and a whole new system put in. Brendan was mainly onsite with additional boys over a 2 week period. They were careful with what they had to pull up and cleaned up after each section they did. Always on time and worked hard throughout the day. For such a big job, they were wonderful throughout and kept us informed.”

    “Wilco had very good communication with us. Jack, the plumber, was very efficient and worked hard. He is a lovely young man, considerate and respectful. He did a great job removing the blockage in kitchen pipes and we thought he was worth his weight in gold. Thanks for such excellent service. (We had a previous quote from another company nearly three times the cost of what we paid). Needless to say all other fridge magnets for plumbers have been chucked !”
