How To Unblock A Drain

Lift the drain inspection cover nearest to the house to see if the chamber is full of water. A spade is useful to lever up the edge of the cover if there are no handles or if you don’t have the keys to fit the cover. If the chamber is empty, the blockage is somewhere in the soil pipe from the house to the chamber. If there’s water in the inspection chamber, the problem is further along the pipework, nearer the mains sewer. Check the next chamber until you have isolated the problem area – between full and empty inspection chambers.
