Will flushing clear a blockage?

A blockage in a toilet can happen as a result of either the build-up of multiple insoluble items that have been flushed down a toilet over a long period of time, or a large amount of material perhaps from just a single flush.

If you simply flush a full cistern of water into a toilet that appears to be blocked it could easily overflow. You’d be taking the risk that the weight of water in the toilet bowl will be enough to clear the blockage.

To most people, the prospect of trying to clear a blocked toilet is not a pleasant one. Even if you have a plunger and a pair of rubber gloves at hand, it assumes the blockage is within the trap rather than further down the pipework or in the soil stack. Frequently, this is not the case.

Broken or blocked macerators

Our engineers are frequently called to properties in London with broken macerators. Sometimes tenants living in rental properties don’t know they have them and are unaware of the damage that items listed above do to them.

If your toilet has become blocked due to something obstructing the moving parts of the unit our drainage engineer can look at the cause. Sometimes an obstruction can be removed. However, if the unit is broken it’s likely that it will need to be replaced.

We will be able to provide a fixed price to buy a replacement unit and install it for you. We have a huge network of plumbing suppliers throughout London, meaning we can get a new unit installed quickly.
