    Drain Cleaning London: Methods

    Hydro Jetting

    High-pressure hydro jetting

    To clean the affected drain, our skilled plumbers will insert a specialised hose with an attached jet nozzle. The jet nozzle will then expel water at an incredibly high pressure effectively dislodging any debris, fats/oils/grease or other obstructions within the pipe. This efficient and thorough drain cleaning solution will eliminate all blockages, resulting in a beautifully clean drain.

    Rotary machine cleaning

    To address clogs in your pipeline, we utilise a specialised hose equipped with spring-loaded blades at the end. Once the machine is activated, these blades spin rapidly to dislodge and expel even the most stubborn obstructions, including roots and compact waste. Our drain cleaning method is highly effective and can be used on a blocked drain in both residential and commercial settings. Additionally, we’ll provide guidance on any nearby plants or trees that may have invasive tendencies and could potentially harm your pipeline in the future.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    These are the common culprits that can lead to a clogged drain:


    • Food debris
    • Fats, oil and grease (FOG)
    • Hair
    • Tree roots
    • Soap Scum
    • Feminine Hygiene Products
    • Toilet paper
    • Disposable wipes

    Plumbers tend to charge by the hour, so drain cleaning prices can vary depending on factors such as the severity of the blockage, the location of the blockage, and the type of equipment needed to clear it. 


    You can save time and money by attending to the issue as soon as you notice it. Leaving the problem to get worse could cost you more money in labour as it could take longer to unclog and repair your pipeline. It’s best to contact a professional plumber for an accurate estimate based on your specific needs.

    There are several methods that you can use as a DIY drain cleaner, and the best one to use depends on the type and severity of the blockage. For minor clogs, you can try using a plunger or pouring boiling water down the drain. For more stubborn clogs, using a mixture of baking soda and vinegar as a drain cleaner may be effective. However, it’s important to note that a harsh chemical drain cleaner can damage your pipes and should be avoided.

    Yes, a mixture of baking soda and vinegar can be a safe and effective method for drain maintenance. When combined, these two ingredients create a chemical reaction that can help to eliminate clogs and clear drains. However, it’s important to note that this type of drain cleaner may not work for all types of clogs, and it’s always best to exercise caution when working with any chemicals. 


    Additionally, if you have a septic system, using large amounts of baking soda and vinegar could disrupt the natural balance of bacteria in your system. So, it’s best to use this method sparingly or avoid it altogether.

    Thoroughly cleaning a drain requires a multi-step approach. Here are the steps you can follow:

    1. Remove all debris: Use a pair of gloves and remove any debris you can see, such as food particles or hair, from the drain.
    2. Pour boiling water down the drain: Fill the kettle with water and allow it to boil. Once boiled, carefully pour it down the drain to help loosen any remaining blockages.
    3. Use baking soda and vinegar: Pour half a cup of baking soda followed by a cup of vinegar down the drain. Let this mixture sit for 30 minutes to an hour before you rinse it down with boiling water.
    4. Try using a plunger: If your drain is still clogged, try using a plunger to dislodge the blockage.
    5. Use a drain snake: For more stubborn clogs, you can use a drain snake to physically remove the clog from your pipes.
    6. Repeat if necessary: If your drains are still not fully clean after these steps, you may need to repeat them to remove the build-up or contact a professional plumber for assistance.


    By following these steps, you should be able to clean your pipeline and help prevent future blockages.

    Plumbers typically recommend several methods for keeping drains clean and preventing build-up or clogs. Here are some of the most common tips:


    1. Use a drain strainer: Place a drain strainer over your sink or shower drain to catch any hair or debris before it can enter your pipes.
    2. Avoid pouring grease down the drain: Grease can solidify in your pipes and cause blockages, so it’s best to dispose of it in the trash instead.
    3. Flush drains with hot water: Once a week, pouring boiling water down through your pipeline can help prevent the build-up of soap scum and other debris.
    4. Avoid flushing non-degradable items: Items such as wet wipes, dental floss, and feminine hygiene products should never be flushed down the toilet as they can cause major clogs.


    By following these tips, you can help keep your pipeline clean and avoid costly repairs in the future.

    The best tool to unblock a drain depends on the type and severity of the clog. Here are some common tools that plumbers use:


    • Plunger: A plunger is a simple yet effective tool for dislodging bathroom clogs in sinks, toilets, and showers.
    • Drain snake: A drain snake, also known as an auger, is a flexible cable with a corkscrew-like end that can be used to physically remove blockages from pipes.
    • Hydro jetting: For more stubborn clogs or larger pipes, plumbers may use hydro jetting, which uses high-pressure water to blast away debris and build-up.
    • Rotary Machine Cleaning: A specialised hose with spring-loaded blades that rotate at high speed to clear even the most stubborn clogs.

    Plumbers typically do not recommend using a chemical drain cleaner as a first-line solution for clogged drains. While a drain cleaner can be effective at breaking down clogs, it can also cause damage to pipes and sinks over time and may not entirely remove the clog.

    Boiling water and baking soda is a common home remedies for dissolving hair in clogged drains. To use this method, simply pour a half cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by a few cups of boiling water. The heat from the boiling water helps to dissolve the hair and break down any clogs in your pipeline.


    Other products, such as an enzymatic drain cleaner, can also be used to dissolve and eliminate stubborn clogs caused by hair. These cleaners contain natural enzymes that help to break down organic matter, such as food residue, soap scum, and human or animal hair, without damaging pipes or fixtures.
