How do you know you've got a blockage

  • Slow draining – the water level is slower to drain than normal in the toilet, sink, or bath
  • Gurgling sounds - after you have flushed the toilet or from the sink, bath or shower drain
  • Bad smell - around your toilets, sink, bath and drains
  • Changes in flush – the water levels in your toilet may rise higher when you flush or drop to a lower than usual level
  • Traps/drains in the yard overflow - when the toilet is flushed, or when basins or baths are released.

If you are aware of the early warning signs and recognise the issue, you can get professional help before a more serious problem develops. See what to do below.
