Excellent service. Peter , who cleared the drain after ascertaining exactly where the blockage was, was extremely helpful. Such a very nice man who simply got on with the job and was very efficient and friendly.
Anita Heerwagen
Blocked drain promptly resolved
Clearing a blocked drain is usually done by my husband. The drain to the side of our property is very shallow and appears to become blocked on a fairly regular basis. Your engineer's prompt attention on the same day of my phoning to request a visit was most gratefully received.
We were told about the drainage problem…
We were told about the drainage problem at our holiday cottage at lunch time and by 5.00 pm the problem was solved - drain unblocked. I think that is excellent service.

External Drain Blockages

Have you noticed your external drains starting to smell? Or is there water overflowing outside your home or premises? You might be dealing with a blocked drain. It’s best to get a professional in to deal with an external blockage, and we offer 24/7 emergency drainage services to provide peace of mind. 

External drainage problems will require more heavy-duty equipment which our tradesmen will have a full supply of in their van. From high-pressure water jets to coring equipment, we will have what it takes to fix any external blockage. It’s important to get someone in as soon as possible to avoid further damage and with our 24-hour drain unblocking service, you can be sure that Able Group will sort the matter as quickly as possible.

Common Causes of Blocked Drains
Garden Waste
The most likely culprit of an external drain blockage is garden waste. Leaves, twigs, plastic bags, and other rubbish can easily clog up an external drain. This can usually take place when the waste gets caught in rain flow. If you notice any blockages, get in touch with Able Group and we can provide emergency drain unblocking.
Grease & Fats
A build-up of grease and fat can cause a drain blockage and will usually be found in drains surrounding a block of flats or house conversions. Our expert plumbers can attend any type of blockage within 30-90 minutes of your call*. If you require a blocked drain plumber, get in touch with Able Group.
Household Items
When household items like cotton pads, wipes and sanitary products are flushed down the toilet, the build-up can cause blockages. These types of products aren’t designed to disintegrate like toilet paper and therefore can’t break down properly to avoid getting blocked. We provide 24-hour drain unblocking for situations like this, so get in touch if you require our help.
