Blocked Baths


After un-plugging the bath-plug or while having a shower, if you notice slow draining water, this could be the first sign of a blocked bath.  From this point, the bath water will normally drain slower and slower until the bath doesn't drain at all.

 

If you have a blocked bath that can't be unblocked with your general household bath unblockers (e.g. Mr Muscle bath unblocker), wire brush or a bath plunger, then this could be an indication that the problem is more than just a build up soap scum or hair follicles in the u-bend and that a professional drain clearer would be the best choice to unblock your blocked bath.

Fixing the bath DIY doesn't always work out how you would like it to as the use of the wrong chemicals can have distastorous results for your bath's pipework, or worse still be potentially hazardous for your health when used without the proper caution needed.

 

DS Serve's reliable engineers have the experience and training to use several different environmentally friendly techniques when it comes to clearing bath blockages and fixing slow draining baths.  The team are accustomed to clearing blockages caused by items like hair clips getting lodged in the trap, u-ben or further down the pipework or from a build-up of hair or soap scum.  They are even equipped to recognise and repair any underlying problem in the pipe and drain work leading from your baths.

 

 

Preventing Further Blocked Baths

 

It will of course cost you less in the long run to prevent a blocked bath rather than dealing with the cost and inconvenience of unblocking it.  The first step you can take to preventing bath blockages is to consider placing a hair trap over the plughole when you are using the shower.  This is the there to collect loose hair and can be emptied into the bin after every shower and will help to prevent further blockages of the bath.

Further to this, you could look at regular maintenance as an option.  If you would like us to clean and/or replace your bath traps, u-bends and piping as a periodic maintenance operation in your tenanted property or own home, contact us for a quote and a 1st class service which will leave your bath's drainage system in the best possible condition for avoiding blockages - especially blockages which are built up due to hair and soap scum.
