Waste material can build up in a drainage network over time. Flow rates are reduced during this process and other material subsequently collects around it.

Some of the most common things that require external drains to be cleaned include: –

  • Insoluble scale and solids created in hard water areas

  • Grease and fats that are rinsed away after cooking

  • Sanitary products that don’t dissolve in water; wet wipes, tampons etc

  • Plastics including bags and wrapping
