Fix a Blocked Toilet

Drainflow Will Fix a Blocked Toilet Fast

It’s not a pleasant job, but someone has to do it! Drainflow engineers have been fixing Bedfordshire’s blocked toilets for over 20 years now. Customers sometimes get embarrassed about calling us in to fix a blocked toilet. But it really isn’t an issue for us. In this blog we explain why getting the professional in is a better option than attempting DIY on your loo.


When a Blockage Occurs…

Every toilet blocks once in a while, and in most cases they’ll clear themselves after a couple of flushes. If this doesn’t happen, it’s worth popping a pair of gloves on, and seeing if you can shift the problem. Often it’s toilet paper that’s clogging up your drain, or – the bane of our lives – wet wipes. These don’t disintegrate when flushed like toilet paper does, and so they can cause a build-up that lead to a blockage.

Here’s When You Call Drainflow

If you can’t see what’s causing your blocked toilet – call the Drainflow experts. We have the specialist equipment to deal with a blocked toilet drain, and we achieve 1st time fixes in the majority of cases. Best of all – we don’t charge a call-out fee.

4 Signs You Need a Professional

  1. DIY Didn’t Work. If you’ve used a chemical cleaner, or tried a plunger, but still the problem persists, call a pro. Some DIY can actually cause further damage to your drainage system, so it’s as well to get a specialist out as soon as possible. We’ll use specialist equipment to find the cause of the blockage, and clear it efficiently.
  2. There’s an Unpleasant Smell. If you find that you’re using a bottle of bleach a week, and still your smelly toilet persists, get an expert eye on it. Bad smells are early warning signs that something is amiss behind the scenes. Drainflow engineers will check for hidden leaks, or a blocked toilet drain.
  3. The Toddler’s Toys Are Missing. Can’t find your toddler’s plastic figures? Toilet acting up? Often the two are connected. Small plastic toys are easy to flush, and toddlers love watching them disappear. Getting them back can be more of a problem, though. Drainflow engineers will locate the lost treasure, and retrieve it.
  4. The Toilet Runs Constantly. If your toilet is trickling endlessly, you’ll be running up a mighty water bill! The problem is normally an ill-fitting, or broken, water flap that needs replacing. It’s a job that can be done quickly – so don’t delay. Get a Drainflow engineer in to fix the problem, and keep those bills down.
