Blocked Drains

Blocked drains can cause a number of problems, ranging from toilets not flushing to water collecting in your sink. Clearing blocked drains is often a quick and simple process, and in many cases can be done yourself.

Blocked Drain Clearance

Drainage is an important part of any building, especially for sinks and toilets. When drains are blocked, the water and sewerage is unable to clear, which can result in a number of issues.

Below we have information on the common types of blockages, advice on unblocking drains and prices for professional blocked drain services.

Drain Unblocking Cost

There are a few important components that influence the cost of unblocking a drain. The main factors are:

  • Service Required – There are a number of different drain and sewerage services, each costing different amounts. Simple toilet and sink unblocking is generally the cheapest service, whilst a CCTV drain survey or drain repairs will cost more.
  • Type of Block – If the block is closer to the surface and easier to clear, the unblocking will cost less. However, if it is a deeper rooted problem, which requires specialist equipment or the removal of parts to gain access, the price will generally be higher.
  • Location in the UK – A major factor in determining the cost of toilet or sink unblocking is your location within the UK. Typically, costs will be highest in London and the South East of England. Locations without local drain unblocking professionals will also cost more.

How much does a sink or toilet unblocking cost?

The cost to unblock a toilet or sink will generally range from £60 to £110. However, deeper blockages or more complex blocked drains are likely to cost from £130 to £150. It is also important to factor in any repairs to cracked or damaged piping when calculating the cost of toilet unblocking.

Below we have compiled a useful table to help you better understand the average price to unblock a drain in the UK.

Looking for Local Garage Conversion Contractors?

Unblock Toilet

If you are considering converting your garage into usable living space, you may already have a good idea of exactly what you want. However, if you want some inspiration to best maximise your space, we have put together a list of the best garage conversion ideas.

How to Unblock a Toilet:

  1. Additional Bedroom: Bedrooms are one of the most popular garage conversion ideas. Converting a garage is a great way to add an extra bedroom or two.
  2. Split Garage: If you have a double garage, you can convert half into living space, such as a bedroom, whilst still retaining a garage space for your car.
  3. Extended Living Room: Many garages are built next to the living room area, and knocking through a wall is a great way to expand your lounge room.
  4. Bathroom: If your property doesn’t have a bathroom downstairs (or perhaps needs an additional toilet), you can convert part of your garage.
  5. Larger Kitchen: Whilst it may seem unusual, but moving or extending your kitchen into the garage area is one of the cheapest extension options.
  6. Home Office: If you run your own business or work from home and need your own space, a converted garage may be the perfect option.
