Toilet blockages are more frequent nowadays because cisterns use a smaller amount of water for each flush.

Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes customers have reported more problems with blocked toilets in recent years.

Toilet cisterns are half the size they were 30 years ago. Manufacturers are making them smaller because households - many on water meters - need to save water.

As a result, less water is sent through the drains with each flush meaning that sometimes waste is not flushed through a drain system as thoroughly as with older toilet cisterns.

Furthermore, toilets are not designed to cope with large quantities of mass such as nappies, tampons or lots of toilet paper. The system can easily become clogged due to any of these reasons or there might be other problems such as broken pipes.

A slight break in a pipe or drain is enough to cause waste to build up - a problem that can often repeat itself if the problem is not rectified.

Your Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes technician may recommend a CCTV survey to visibly check the problem and provide viable ways of preventing any further blockages.

Regular cleaning, plunging and flushing of your toilet will prevent the slow build up of scale and small bits of waste turning into larger problems by keeping things moving through the system.
