Is Your Outside Drain Blocked?

5th April 2019

Is Your Outside Drain Blocked?

We’ve had some lovely hot ‘summer-like’ days here in Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham. As we approach the warmer months, now is the time we start to think about a garden clean up ready for the hectic BBQ’s, garden parties and maybe even al fresco dining and the last thing we want is a smelly outside blocked drain spoiling that!


A smelly outside drain blocked can be caused due to a build-up of silt, debris and leaves. When you’re sweeping up your garden, be mindful not to sweep the waste from your garden down the drain. Even though you may be tempted, it’s not as simple as ‘out of sight, out of mind’, it could lead to an outside drain blocked.

An outside drain blocked can be caused by other things which are simply unavoidable. With ground movement, vibrations from nearby traffic and wear and tear, your drains can become cracked and will eventually break. It’s important to be aware of the early signs of a cracked/blocked outside drain as we can offer a simple yet effective solution rather than having to dig up your entire garden.

How to identify an outside blocked drain:

  • Oddly smelly drains
  • Slow draining sinks/baths/showers
  • Rising toilet levels when you flush
  • Bubbling noises


If you notice any of these signs listed above in Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham, give us a call on 01302 772464 and we’ll be with you right away. Don’t worry! With a little help from our expert engineers and our advanced machinery, we offer ‘no dig’ repairs options where we will insert a liner into the drain and activate it with resin to get your pipes flowing again without caused chaos in your garden.
