Blocked and overflowing manhole in Reading

Drain Unblocking in Reading

Blocked drains can be distressing, causing damage to property and disrupting businesses. Our expert drainage teams respond promptly and are fully equipped to minimize property damage and restore flow. Common causes of blocked drains in Reading include:

  • Pipework Obstructions

    Debris, including household items, can clog drains and cause frequent and worsening blockages

  • Damaged Pipework

    Faulty pipework, such as broken, displaced, or collapsed pipes, can cause material buildup, leading to blockages over time.

  • Root Intrusion

    Roots frequently infiltrate the drainage system, and once they take root, they can hinder the flow, causing blockages and even more severe problems.

When dealing with blockages, it's crucial to determine the root cause. While removing debris can often restore flow, sometimes a blockage indicates a deeper underlying issue that requires investigation. Consider CCTV drainage surveys to diagnose drainage problems and prevent them from becoming severe and costly.
