Blocked Drains in Hackney, Hampstead and the East London Areas

Homeowners and business owners in Hackney, Hampstead, Bayswater, Clerkenwell and throughout East London experience the frustration of blocked drains for many reasons. These can be due to debris from the local environment or a build-up of improperly disposed of waste. Whatever the reason may be, our drainage consultants are trained to carry out a CCTV drain survey, clear any blockages and install drain lining membranes to prevent any issues getting out of hand. Our clients can rely on an expert plumber from First Choice Drainage Solutions Ltd to determine the problem and fix it post-haste.

Common Causes of Blocked Drains

Outside Drainage Problems


  • Exterior blocked drains can be the result of fallen leaves and foliage that has collected to cause an obstruction, which is more likely to happen during the autumn months
  • Domestic and commercial properties in greener areas of Hackney, Hampstead, Bayswater, Clerkenwell and East London are susceptible to tree roots growing inside the pipes
  • Another culprit can be silt, which is when drains are clogged with deposits of fine sand or clay. An accumulation of silt is common with shared drainage systems in East London, which can lead to overflowing and flooding

Bathroom or Kitchen Blockages


  • Bathroom drain blockages typically happen when insoluble materials are flushed down toilets or urinals accidentally. Paper towels, wet wipes and sanitary products which should be disposed of in a waste receptacle cause pipes to get clogged. Sinks, baths and showers can often get congested because of hair
  • In the kitchen, blocked drains are likely to be due to pieces of food, oil and grease that are washed down the sink. This can also be the case for remnants of food or other debris left on kitchenware before being loaded into the dishwasher

A plumber or one of our drainage consultants can examine the issue by conducting a CCTV drain survey at your Hackney, Hampstead, Bayswater, Clerkenwell or East London property. From here, we will advise clients on the best course of action, such as high-pressure water jetting and drain lining treatments.
