As specialists in resolving drainage issues, we are often asked by our clients how they can minimise their ongoing drainage problems. We have rounded up some common drainage problems below and shared our top tips on how to prevent these problems from occurring on a regular basis.

Common drainage issues


Blockages within the drainage network caused by wipes, cotton pads and other products can be easily prevented. Even toilet wipes which claim they are flushable can cause blockages within the drainage network. Blockages are also commonly caused by oil and fat being poured down the drain. Taking simple steps to stop putting these things within the drainage network will help to reduce blockages overtime.

Pipe breakage

Pipe breakage is common in drainage networks with high usage; however, this can be detrimental to the wider network, causing issues such as flooding and environmental issues. Pipe breakage issues are often caused by general wear and tear, therefore by having regular maintenance carried out these problems can be reduced.

Environmental factors

Environmental factors are one of the most common causes of drainage issues. Adverse weather can have a huge impact on the drainage system, causing pipe damage and flooding. Another common environmental problem is root growth from trees, which can be detrimental to drainage networks.

Environmental issues can be difficult to prevent however, with proper planning and maintenance, these drainage problems can be minimised.
