Frequently Asked Questions
Unblocker or plumber: how to choose?
Plumbers are qualified professionals, but they may face complex cases requiring specialised tools such as the hydro-scraper or the endoscopic camera. This is where our unclogging services come in as the preferred partners of plumbers.
We are experts in unblockingWe have a wide range of services to offer, including blocked drains, root overgrowth, and sink drains blocked by grease and solidified soap. By contacting us directly, you will save time and benefit from the most competitive rates on the market.
Mechanical or high-pressure unblocking: how to choose?
The mechanical uncorking involves the use of mechanical equipment, such as a pump drainer (professional suction cup) or a ferretThis method is often used to remove blockages in pipes. This method is often used for minor and localised obstructionsThis includes hair, food scraps and small objects.
The mechanical uncorking is preferred for small caps in the vicinity that only affect one item in the house. For example, a clog of wipes within 1.60 metres of the toilet.
If you are often clogged or if several elements in the house are affected you must choose the high pressure draining. For example: if the water from the toilet comes out of the shower when you flush, it is a sign that the clog is in the central pipeline of the house. The high pressure package will be applied.
All in all, the choice between mechanical or high pressure unblocking will depend on the nature of the blockage, the location and condition of your pipes. If you are not sure which method to choose, contact us to assess the situation and we will advise you on the first phone call.

Is the unblocking covered by my home insurance?
Unclogging drains is not usually covered by basic home insurance, as it is considered to be regular home maintenance rather than a loss-related repair. However, some home insurance policies may include an option to cover the cost of unclogging drains in an emergency.
It is important to check the terms and conditions of your home insurance policy to see whether or not it covers unblocking drains. If you have supplementary home insurance for specific claims such as sewage damage, the cost of unblocking drains may be covered. In any case, it is advisable to contact your insurer to find out exactly what is covered by your home insurance policy.
With our endoscopic camera, we can detect the most serious causes such as plant roots that have entered the pipes or broken pipes. If this is considered a loss, it may be covered by your home insurance, but it is important to check the terms and conditions of your home insurance policy to see exactly what is covered.
How do you unblock a pipe yourself?
Before you call a professional unblocker, there are a few steps you can take to try to unblock the drain yourself:
Use a suction cup: A plunger can help to dislodge a small blockage in the pipe. Place the plunger on the pipe and pump it several times to create pressure.
Pour in boiling water: Boiling water can help dissolve grease and other debris that clogs the pipe.
Use a mixture of baking soda and white vinegar: Mix one cup of baking soda with one cup of white vinegar, pour the mixture down the drain and leave for one hour before rinsing with hot water.
Try a ferret: A ferrule is a plumbing tool that can help dislodge a larger blockage in the pipe. Gently insert the ferret into the pipe and twist it to move it forward. When you feel resistance, gently pull back the ferret to dislodge the clog. If you are not comfortable with using a ferret (risk of blockage), it is best to call in a professional to avoid damaging the pipe.
If these methods fail to unblock the pipe, it is time to call in a professional unblocker. Avoid using harsh chemicals, as they can damage the pipe and pose health risks.
