How do blocked drains and toilets occur?

Blocked drains and blocked toilets can be caused by a range of issues including tree roots, and sometimes toilet paper. These blockages can be addressed through the usage of a sewer machine and water jetting. If the blockage is more severe, for example, if it is caused by a tree root or collapsed pipes the use of C.C.T.V equipment may be required.

How do blocked storm water drains occur?

Storm water drains are the pipes which link to the pipes from your houses roof and also sumps in your garden. These pipes discharge water to the street. Similar to regular drains and toilets, storm water drains can become blocked due to tree roots, dirt and silt in the pipes.
