  • Q: What causes blocked drains?
    A: Blocked drains can be caused by various factors including the buildup of debris such as hair, grease, food particles, and sanitary products. Tree root intrusion, collapsed pipes, and foreign objects can also contribute to blockages.
  • Q: How can I prevent blocked drains?
    A: Regular maintenance is key to preventing blocked drains. Avoid pouring grease or oil down the drain, use drain covers to catch debris, and refrain from flushing non-biodegradable items down the toilet. Additionally, periodic professional drain cleaning can help keep your drains clear.
  • Q: How do I know if my drain is blocked?
    A: Signs of a blocked drain include slow drainage, gurgling sounds coming from the drains, unpleasant odors, and water backing up in sinks, toilets, or showers.
  • Q: Can I unblock my drain myself?
    A: For minor blockages, you may attempt to clear the drain using a plunger or a drain snake. However, if the blockage persists or if you suspect a more serious issue such as tree root intrusion or a collapsed pipe, it's best to seek professional assistance.
  • Q: How much does it cost to unblock a drain?
    A: The cost of unblocking a drain can vary depending on factors such as the severity of the blockage, the accessibility of the drain, and the location of the property. It's advisable to contact a reputable drainage company for a quote tailored to your specific situation.
  • Q: What should I do if I have a blocked drain?
    A: If you suspect you have a blocked drain, it's important to address it promptly to prevent further damage. Contact a professional drainage company to assess the situation and provide the appropriate solution.
  • Q: How can I find a reliable drain unblocker near me?
    A: GSB Drainage provides expert drain clearance services in your area. Contact us for prompt assistance.
  • Q: What is high-pressure jetting for drain unblocking?
    A: High-pressure jetting is a drain unblocking technique that involves using a powerful stream of water to clear blockages and debris from drainage pipes. The high-pressure water jet can effectively break up clogs, flush out obstructions, and clean the interior surfaces of the pipes, restoring optimal flow and function to the drainage system.
  • Q: How does high-pressure jetting work?
    A: During high-pressure jetting, a specialized nozzle attached to a flexible hose is inserted into the blocked drain. Water is then pumped through the hose at high pressure, creating a concentrated stream that dislodges and flushes away debris, grease, and other obstructions from the pipes.
  • Q: What are the benefits of high-pressure jetting?
    A: The benefits of high-pressure jetting include its effectiveness in clearing tough blockages, its ability to clean the interior surfaces of the pipes, its non-invasive nature that minimizes damage to the drainage system, and its versatility for use in various types of drains and pipe materials.
  • Q: What is drain rodding for drain unblocking?
    A: Drain rodding is a drain unblocking technique that involves using a flexible rod or cable, known as a drain rod, to manually push or rotate through the blocked drain. The drain rod can break up and dislodge blockages, allowing water to flow freely through the pipe.
  • Q: When is drain rodding used for drain unblocking?
    A: Drain rodding is typically used for smaller, localized blockages in household drains, such as those caused by hair, soap scum, or food debris. It is a manual and less aggressive method compared to high-pressure jetting and is suitable for use in situations where access to the drain is limited or where the blockage is relatively minor.
  • Q: What are the limitations of drain rodding?
    A: Drain rodding may not be effective for large or stubborn blockages, such as those caused by tree roots or hardened grease. It also requires physical effort and may be less suitable for deep or inaccessible drains.
  • Q: What is a CCTV drain survey?
    A: A CCTV drain survey is a non-invasive inspection method that utilizes specialized cameras to visually inspect the interior of drainage pipes and sewer lines. It allows for a detailed assessment of the condition of the drains, identifying any blockages, damage, or other issues that may be present.
  • Q: Why would I need a CCTV drain survey?
    A: A CCTV drain survey is essential for diagnosing drainage problems, assessing the condition of drainage systems, locating blockages or obstructions, identifying structural damage or defects, and planning maintenance or repair work.
  • Q: How does a CCTV drain survey work?
    A: During a CCTV drain survey, a high-resolution camera attached to a flexible cable is inserted into the drainage system through an access point such as a manhole or cleanout. The camera sends live footage to a monitor, allowing the technician to inspect the interior of the pipes in real-time and record any findings for further analysis.
  • Q: What are the benefits of a CCTV drain survey?
    A: The benefits of a CCTV drain survey include accurate diagnosis of drainage issues, cost-effective problem-solving, minimal disruption to property or landscaping, prevention of potential damage, and informed decision-making for maintenance or repair strategies.
  • Q: How long does a CCTV drain survey take?
    A: The duration of a CCTV drain survey can vary depending on factors such as the size and complexity of the drainage system, the extent of the inspection required, and any issues encountered during the survey. However, most surveys can be completed within a few hours.
  • Q: Is a CCTV drain survey covered by insurance?
    A: Coverage for a CCTV drain survey may vary depending on your insurance policy and the circumstances surrounding the inspection. It's advisable to check with your insurance provider to determine if the cost of a CCTV drain survey is covered under your policy.
