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

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

This means that more companies that have never had blocked toilet and drain issues in the past are now reporting problems.

Blockages can occur when large quantities of 'mass' such as nappies, tampons or wads of toilet paper are flushed away. Toilets are not designed to remove these items.

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 and block a toilet. This problem can often repeat itself if the cause of the blockage is not rectified.

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

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