Object Stuck in Pipe
A foreign object in a pipe can lead to a serious blocked drain fiasco.
We've Seen It All
Trust us, we have seen all sorts of foreign objects that have blocked drains and pipe systems.
Wedding rings and other jewellery are very common and children can be particularly delightful too when they decided to flush a Thomas the Tank engine or a wiggles soft toy.
While this list isn't exhaustive, these are some of the more common items we've found flushed down a drain, or blocking a pipe.
- Rings & Jewellery
- Cleaning utensils’
- Pets (watch the video)
- Sanitary products
As tempting as it may be to get the tongs and try to retrieve the item, you may accidentally move the item further into the pipe making professional removal more difficult (and expensive) or in the case of jewellery risk losing the item altogether.
