Blocked Toilet


As a specialist drainage company, we often get called to homes in Hemel Hempstead, Leighton Buzzard and Watford with blocked toilets. Blockages are usually the result of customers flushing inappropriate items, such as wipes, cotton buds and sanitary products.


You should avoid using chemicals to clear blockages because these can cause more damage and are merely a temporary solution. The most effective and reliable option is to call an experienced plumber. We use specialist equipment to clear blockages and carry out a CCTV drain survey to ensure pipes are completely clear and in good condition.


Leaking Toilet


If you notice your toilet is leaking, it’s important you address the issue as soon as possible. Ignoring a leak can lead to expensive water damage and, if it’s wastewater that’s leaking, there may also be a health risk.


Leaks are often the result of blocked toilets but can also be caused by loose valves and bolts, damage to the supply line and cracks in the tank or toilet bowl.


Toilet Won’t Flush


There are various reasons why toilets in Hemel Hempstead, Leighton Buzzard and Watford stop flushing correctly. The problem may be with the lift chain, flush handle, flapper or water level.


Blocked toilets are also a common reason why toilets stop flushing.

Toilet Won’t Stop Running


When a toilet is constantly running, this means water doesn’t stop flowing into the tank. As well as wasting water, this costs you money.


If the water level in your tank is dropping, your flapper or flush valve assembly likely needs replacing. If the tank isn’t leaking, or the water level is high enough to spill into the overflow, you may need to clean or replace the fill valve.


At SB Drain Services, we identify and resolve any issues you may have with your toilet and wider drainage system. As well as clearing blocked toilets, we carry out drain repairs and replace any old, worn or broken components for customers in the Hemel Hempstead, Leighton Buzzard and Watford areas.


Some work, such as adjusting and replacing the fill and flush valve assemblies, requires turning off the water supply and emptying the tank. It’s also essential to make sure work adheres to relevant codes and that you don’t cause further damage by overtightening bolts and other connectors.


As such, it’s always best to call the professionals.

If you have a blocked toilet or another drainage issue in Leighton Buzzard, Watford or the surrounding areas, contact SB Drain Services on 01582 968 200 or 07710 452 451.
