Clogged toilets, overflowing toilets, backflow in the shower... if everything is blocked: no need to use Destop, acid or bicarbonate of soda because the blockage is too far away

What causes a blocked toilet?

If your toilets are regularly clogged and can no longer flush. If they are overflowing and you notice that your sinks are not draining properly and that you hear "gurgling" sounds every time you flush, the problem is most likely outside your home.

How can an outside manhole get blocked, a sewer overflow when they have much larger pipes than those in your houses?

The main causes of toilet overflow are

  • Using too much toilet paper at the same time (several flushes at the same time)
  • Non-biodegradable wipes or sanitary towels flushed down the toilet
  • Scale, lime and lye deposits that harden in the pipes and reduce their diameter 
  • Design problem: too small a slope between your internal installations and the external manhole or sewer.
  • Multiple 90° elbows that slow down the progression of the material.
  • Land subsidence causing breaks in the pipeline
  • Roots in the pipe.

If your outside manhole is blocked, there is no need to put destop in your toilet, only a professional unblocker can get you out of this situation.

Destop, bicarbonate of soda, grandmother's remedy... All these techniques are totally ineffective facing a clogged sewer problem. The reason is simple, the volume of water in the tube strongly dilutes whatever you are going to add. 

The most effective way to unblock an overflowing sewer is to use high-pressure water jetting. This solution is fast, durable and environmentally friendly. The unblocking experts offer a camera inspection (fixed price 280€) in case of suspected root or breakage.

Who pays for the sewer that backs up or for the overflowing manhole?

It all depends on the location of the blockage. If it is outside your property, the municipality pays for the unblocking. If the blockage is in your property (outside manhole in your garden), the bill is for the owner or tenant.

Our unblocking packages are all inclusive and without surprises:

No costs to add: travel to all areas included, no overtime...

Frequently Asked Questions

If the water from the toilet is coming back up into your shower, the clog is in the main drain of the house. 

As the water cannot drain away to the sewers will go up through the lowest exit of the house which is usually the shower

Our solution is to unblock your pipe by hydrocuring from the manhole outside the house. Once the blockage has been cleared, the normal flow will be restored and your shower will be operational again.

 

The most common causes of toilet blockages are the use of wipes or the loss of a disinfectant carrier. 

Sometimes the problem is more serious: 

  • Pipes full of limescale with slabs coming off and blocking the flow in the bends
  • Soap plug (amalgam of grease, lime and solidified soaps)
  • root intrusion in the pipe
  • broken, collapsed or burst pipe
  • counter-slope which slows down the flow of materials and causes clogs.

We have a solution for almost all situations. Video inspection of your pipes will determine the cause of the blockage and give you the keys to ensure that your toilet is never blocked again.

From our experience, we can say that Destop is not very effective for unclogging a toilet

The reason is simple: if it is a local traffic jam a suction cup will be much more effective as it will move the blockage and unblock the situation.

If your blockage is several metres away from your toiletThe amount of water dilutes the product so much that it is impossible to have any action on the clog: a 10-metre toilet pipe contains about 78 litres of water.

Finally, Destop can do nothing against limescale, roots or solidified soap clogs. Hydrocleaning is the only technique that allows a durable unblocking of your toilet.

Plumbers are specialists, but they do not have the equipment (hydro-cleaner, endoscopic camera) to solve the most difficult cases. 

for a blocked sewer, a pipe full of roots or a sink drain completely clogged with grease and solidified soap, they themselves call on our services and are our preferred partners.

We guarantee your toilet unblocking for 1 month after our intervention. This gives you time to test the proper functioning of your pipes. In the event of a new blockage, a second visit will be made on the same day as your report, at no cost to you. 

If there is no structural problem with your pipe and we are unable to unblock it, we do not charge for our work.

If the unblocking is impossible, for example due to a collapse of the pipe or a buried manhole making it impossible for our ferrets to pass through, we only charge the cost of the trip, i.e. 120€ inc.

We will locate the problem with the camera so that you can call in a plumber or mason to repair the pipe or update the manhole. 

A second visit will be scheduled to complete the unblocking and cleaning of your pipes, and we will deduct the travel costs of the first visit.

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 blockage is in the central pipe of the house. The high pressure package will be applied.

We will be able to determine which package is best for you by asking you a few questions when you make your appointment by phone.

 

The maintenance and unclogging of toilets is the responsibility of the tenant. (see text on the service-public.fr website)

If the blockage is in the common areas of the building, the condominium association is responsible for unblocking it. 

If the blockage is caused by a structural problem (broken pipe or poor design of the network) the repair and unblocking is the responsibility of the owner.

We will be able to determine the origin and location of the blockage with our endoscopic cameras to determine who should pay for the unblocking.

Some contracts reimburse interventions carried out by professional unblockers.

To find out if you are eligible for reimbursement from your insurance, check the options under 'water damage' or contact your insurer.
