Wet Wipes Blocking Drains In Birmingham

Sewer network's wet wipe blockages 'increasing'

There is an increasing number of sewer blockages caused by flushed wet wipes down toilets. This is causing drains in Birmingham to become blocked which then causes distress. Severn Trent Water says this has been the cause of 45,000 blocked drains each year in the Midlands area.

Wet wipe companies have stated that they will be making it more clear on the packets that wet wipes are not to be flushed to try and avoid the blocked drain issues.

If your drains have become blocked in the Birmingham area and you are in need of assistance, Metro Rod offers  services in the following:

  • Clearing Blocked Drains
