Our plumbers are highly qualified in unblocking drains both manually and electrically, using drain clearing practices that will not harm your drain pipes or shower.

Blocked Bath Brighton

Having a blocked bath in your home is never a welcome experience. When a bath blockage is left untreated, scale encrustation can build which can lead to expensive repair work. To avoid blocked drains and expensive repairs further down the line, get in touch with DrainBoss, your local Brighton drain unblocking professionals, at the first sign of a blocked bath, and we will fix any blocked drains as soon as possible.

Chemical drain unblockers that you can buy in supermarkets may erode the blockage slightly, but they can also damage your drain, and the problem will often return again after further bath usage. DrainBoss plumbers are experts at unblocking drains and specialise in blocked drain clearance. As part of our Brighton drain unblocking service, we will inspect the cause of the problem and fix it with professional tools and equipment designed to unblock the bath for good, so you know your bath is in safe hands with us.


Blocked Urinals Brighton

Our plumbers specialise in blocked drain clearance and know that a blocked urinal is like a blocked toilet in the sense that, in order to avoid blocked drains and prevent a blockage from recurring in a short space of time, you need to establish where the problem is and decide on the most efficient way of dealing with the blockage.

Our Brighton urinal cleaners will completely unblock and clean the urinal system with cutting-edge tools and cleaning equipment which will de-scale and deep clean the urinal pipes. If your urinal doesn’t receive regular maintenance, uric acid and limescale can escalate and build in urinals, and our practice is perfect for removing build-up and unblocking drains.
Urinal smells, flooding, and blockages are not good promotions of your organisation, so we recommend maintenance of your urinals to fix blocked drains and prevent this from happening.

Troubleshooting Blocked Drains in Brighton

Most of the time, it is easy to determine that you have a blocked drain and what is causing the blockage. However, there may be times when you are unsure whether your drain really is blocked or what caused the blockage to begin with.

Here are some troubleshooting methods that you can use to determine why drains may be blocked in your Brighton home or business:

1. If you smell a horrible odour coming from near one of your drains, you could have a blocked vent or a partial clog. You should check to see if the vents are blocked, and you can also pour a mixture of baking soda, vinegar, and hot water down the drain, as this often works well at unblocking drains.


  1. If only one drain is backing up in your house, it is safe to assume that just that drain is blocked. You can start with a plunger and see if that unblocks the drain, before trying a plumber’s snake.
  2. If the drains in one area of your house are all blocked, but the rest of the drains in the house are fine, you most likely have a blocked drain or vent line. A professional can assist you with cleaning this out with a drain snake or a pressure washer.
  3. If multiple drains throughout your house are all blocked, then it is possible that you have a blockage in your main sewer line. This could also be caused by tree roots growing through the pipes or a full septic tank. A professional will be able to find the cause of the blockage and fix it for you.

Blocked drains are no fun, but most of the time they are easy to fix. DrainBoss, your local Brighton professional drain company, can help you fix blocked drains by determining the cause of the blockage, especially if it is happening quite frequently. Of course, the best time to call a professional is before the problem is out of control to avoid blocked drains leading to thousands of pounds of damage, so don’t wait too long if your drains are blocked.

Drain Unblocking in Brighton – Blocked Drains Inside Your Home Can Be Caused by These Issues

Every Brighton homeowner dreads the sight of standing water in the sink, or rising water in a toilet that just won’t drain. Clogged drains are a common issue for homeowners, so knowing what causes them is important. Troubleshooting the issues will allow you to avoid blocked drains and prevent them from happening again or becoming chronic issues in your home.


Bathroom Drain Clogs

Most clogs in bathroom drains result from a buildup of hair, dirt, and other materials that bind to soap scum on the walls of your drain pipes. As time goes on, the gunk accumulates and slowly reduces the flow of water. Unblocking drains by removing and cleaning the drain stopper is the first step. If the clog goes deeper, you may need to remove the elbow joint. Preventing these issues can be as simple as using a hair trap over your drain and emptying it regularly.


Clogged Toilets

One of the most dreaded drain clogs is the toilet clog. These can be particularly nasty, and depending on the design of your toilet, some of the most difficult to clear. Toilet clogs are caused mainly by people flushing items that don’t break apart in water, including cotton swabs, feminine hygiene products, dental floss, and wet wipes. For minor clogs, the plunger is the best line of defence. If that doesn’t do the trick, using a hand auger can often break up or retrieve the item causing the clog. Preventing toilet clogs is often as easy as putting only waste and toilet tissue into the system, and using a trash can for anything else.


Kitchen Sink Blockages

The most common cause of kitchen sink clogging in Brighton is cooking grease or oil that has become caked onto drain pipes. Combined with soap residue and un-dissolved food particles, this grease can create a nasty clog in your pipes. One of the best ways to fix blocked drains and minor blockages in kitchen pipes is to use very hot water and dish detergent, which works to break up the clog. Wait a few minutes, then use a plunger and repeat the hot water treatment. If this doesn’t work, you may need to look into a chemical drain opener or remove the elbow joint to clear the blockage by hand.

Follow these Steps to Prevent Blocked Drains in Brighton

You can’t prevent 100% of blocked drains, but you can take preventative measures to reduce the number of blocked drains you deal with throughout the year. Regular maintenance is required to keep your vehicle and your home in proper working order. Your plumbing system is much the same, and regular maintenance is extremely important to avoid blocked drains.


Keep Them Clean

Our drains are generally among the last things on our mind while we are cleaning the house. The best way to remember drains, since they’re usually out of sight and out of mind, is to add them to your household chores list. Add the following chores and you can avoid blocked drains all year round.

Pop-up Plugs – Lift them and remove any debris that may be hanging on. Clean them and put them back into the drain.

Clean the Drain – Remove the drain cover from the shower or tub and clean them out using a hair catching brush.


Protect Your Drains

Cleaning your drains on a regular basis will help prevent blockages, but you should also consider taking preventative measures to avoid blocked drains. Here are a few great ideas to help protect your drains from becoming blocked:


  • Place drain screens on all showers, tubs, and bathroom sink drains.
  • Brush your hair before showering to remove excess hair before you get in the shower.
  • Teach your children about the plumbing system and explain why they need to help make sure toys and small objects don’t go down the drain.
  • Don’t flush anything except waste and toilet paper. Nothing else is safe to flush and even small things like hair, cotton buds, and cotton pads can become lodged in the pipes and create a blockage.
  • Place a rubbish bin beside the toilet so you can more easily throw things in the trash instead of into the toilet.
  • Don’t pour food particles or cooking grease down the kitchen sink.
  • Don’t ever pour things like paint solvents, nail polish, nail polish remover, paint, or vehicle fluids down the drain. These are extremely damaging to the interior walls of the plumbing system and equally as damaging to the environment.
