Blocked drain outside house

If you have a blocked drain outside your house it can be tricky to access and fix, it may also be causing issues inside your house when trying to drain waste from the bathrooms, kitchens and other areas.

Causes of blocked drain outside house

Blocked drains outside the house may have started from within the home, and debris collectively from your waste outlets can collect and cause the drain to block. There are a number of reasons you may have a blocked drain outside your house such as:

  • Food waste
  • Toilet roll and wipes
  • Fatty deposits
  • Collapsed drains
  • Leaves – leaves don’t often break down easily, so if drain protectors are not put in place to prevent them from entering the drains then they can cause a blockage. Waxy leaves are often very water resistant and do not break down over time. They can quickly block and cause issues with your drainage if they are not kept away from drain openings.
  • Debris from building works – sometimes drains can be connected between neighbours and if your neighbour has had recent building work, stones and other debris such as sand can block the drains outside your home. To clear this can take some work but it can obstruct other waste causing a full blockage if not careful.
