Preventing a Blocked Drain

If you have a blocked drain, you can try several tips and tricks to try and clear the blockage your self before calling out for a local plumber to clear the blocked drain.

The best tip we have to prevent a blocked drain is to not put things down the sink, drain, bath shower or toilet that shouldn’t be there. The most common items that we find blocking drain are food, fats and oils in the sink or dish washer, hair in the bath or shower drain and pipes, baby wipes, sanitory towels and even toys in the toilet bowl.

Changing your habit to prevent these things from going down the drain in the first place will help prevent a blocked drain and save you money on plumbers fees. It’s definitely worth while doing although sometimes, it just can’t be helped. 

Our tips for preventing these going down the drain.

1. Use a Drain Guard. Use a shower drain hair catcher in your bath or shower and a drain strainer in your kitchen sink to prevent the food and waste going into your pipes in the kitchen and clogging up your pipes. 

2. Scrape off any excess food into the bin before washing them in the sink.

3. Never pour fat and oils down the drain as they solidify when cooled and form a thick block. Especially if there are other items which the fats can bind to. This mix can very quickly lead to a complete blockage.

How Do You Know When You Have a  Blocked Drain

It might seem like a silly question but how do you know when you have a blocked drain?

Is it the drain or the pipe or something else which is causing the problem?

To help us diagnose the problem, simply have a look and see if the water is completely blocked or if it is just draining away slowly?

Is it only partially blocked or is it completely blocked?

A partial blockage is when the water is only able to drain through the blocked area very slowly due to the reduces area which is can move through.

A complete blockage is when water is unable to pass through the blocked area at all causes a water build up backing up the drain.

It may be that the drain is indeed blocked or it may be that the pipes are blocked and the water is unable to pass so backs up tp the drain which makes it look like the drain is blocked.

Sometimes when you have a partially blocked drain, you can see the blockage adn what is causing the probelm. If you are unable to see what is causing the blockage then it is probably further down the pipe. 

Now that you know if it is a partial blockage or complete blockage, you can start to tackle the problem. 

Dealing with a blocked drain as soon as possible is better than waiting until the blockage builds up more and more until it causes a real problem and risk of overflowing and flooding your property.


How To Clear a Blocked Drain

Before calling out your trusted local plumber in Hamilton, try our simple tips and tricks to try and clear the blocked drain yourself. 

You would be surprised how simple this can be with the correct knowledge and tools at hand.


  • Protect yourself. Wear whatever is necessary to prevent damage to your eyes, face and skin. Depending on what you are doing, you can wear safety glasses, long gloves and long sleeves.
  • Get your hand in there (with your gloves on) and clear away any debris from the drain with your fingers. Often a build up of hair or food is causing the blocked drain.
  • Pour hot or boiling water down the blocked drain. This is good for clearing the fats and oils which build up after cooking waste is put down the sink.
  • Try pouring half a cup of baking soda down the drain followed by half a cup of vinegar. This home made cleaning product creates a chemical reaction in the drain which breaks up the blockage. If you leave this for 30-60 minutes in order to give sufficient time for the chemicals to react with the blockage. After the 30-60 minutes, pour hot water down the drain again and test if the blocked drain has been cleared. 
  • Buying drain cleaner from the shop also does the same thing. Just be very careful as these can be very reactive and cause damage to your hair, skin or eyes if you come into direct contact with them. Remember and always use protection when working with these chemicals
  • Another method for clearing a blocked drain is to use your plunger. These very cheap yet effective tools are a must for any plumber to carry with them at all times. 
  • Another great tool for clearing blocked drains is a plumbers snake. It is a long flexible rod which can reach far down into the pipe that your fingers and hands cannopt reach. Again, it is very cheap to purchase and very handy to have around the house to clear any blocked drains.

Underfloor Heating Leak Detection

Underfloor heating leak detection can often go unnoticed for a long period of time as the floorboards prevent the normal tell tale signs of water damage.

This time delay means that a small leak may get larger and the leak and damage have spread to a more serious condition.

Often, the damage will get noticed in another room before even seeing the problem in the room with the underfloor heating water leak.

A wet patch on the ceiling of the room underneath or a damp wall can be the first noticable signs that there is a problem.

As well as taking longer to detect, investigating the root cause of the problem can be a messy job to trace as floorboards often need ripped up in order to trace the leak and allow access to assess the water damage to repair and repair the cause of the problem.

It doesn’t have to be this way though. If you call the professionals at leak detection Hamilton, we have all of the tools, equipment and apparatus to trace and detect the root cause of the problem without having to rip the house apart.

A pipe can be re-routed, capped or replaced to prevent any further underfloor heating leak and water damage.

Speak to the professional leak detection experts in Hamilton before you rip up your floorboards and get the job done right.

Plumbers Hamilton installed a new boiler for us last year and they have just given it an annual service. Would definitely recommend.

Leonard and Susan Marshall, Hamilton

John came out and fixed our leaking pipes at 2am. He put in a new pipe just in time as the water leak was getting worse by the minute. We were very glad that they were able to help us out at such short notice. We can’t thank you enough. I will be using you guys again for any future work.

Jamie and Sharon Prentice, East Kilbride

John did a great job of installing our new bathroom suite. We are very happy with the end result.

James Owen, Hamilton

Thank you for all your help James. Your plumber was on time, did a great job and cleaned up after himself when he finished. He was in and out in no time and our new outside taps are filling the jacuzzi nicely. Great job. 5 Stars.
