When you take a shower does the shower tray or bath fill up with soapy water? If the answer is yes, then you could have blocked waste pipes!

If the problem is ignored then eventually this may lead to blocked outdoor drains, which are a much bigger issue to deal and also more costly to fix!

The most common place for indoor blockages is the kitchen sink and the toilet. A clear indication that the toilet may be blocked is the rising water level and a 'gurgling' sound during the flush. If an odour is also detected then the problem, may extend to the sewage drain!

A combination of food waste and a build up of washing powder continually flowing down the drain can often be the cause of a blocked kitchen sink.

Outdoor Gutters - if guttering is not regularly inspected and kept clean, then it may become blocked up with debris such as leaves, moss and dirt which will cause a build up of silt which will travel along the down pipes and into the gully drain causing it to block.
