A blocked drain pipe and an overflowing toilet.

It happened at the worst possible time.  A fancy dinner party in a red tenement flat in Hyndland and the toilet blocked up.

It didn’t just block up, it overflowed.

This was the customers first dinner party since they had had their first child late last year.  Nobody had told the new mother that you should never flush wet wipes down the toilet so for months that is exactly what she had been doing every time that she had cleaned her child’s nappies.

And for all those months, she had been lucky that they had all managed to slip through the drainage pipes without any issues.  But not tonight.  Tonight, with 7 friends round, her luck finally ran out.

 

At first the mothers dinner guest thought she was the reason for the overflowing toilet and as there was only the one toilet in the flat, something needed to be done.  JSL Drainage, as one of Glasgow’s leading drainage firms were call out.  The host had a quick google for an emergency drainage firm in Glasgow, checked a couple of reviews left by some of our existing customers and called our emergency number 0141 406 1658.

One of our drainage team were dispatched to the West End address (we do not charge a call out fee) and promptly got to work.

The issue was discovered to be a build up of wet wipes that had blocked the toilet drain pipe so naturally (because it is our job), we unblocked it.  The dinner guests all managed to relieve themselves and the dinner party carried on with laughter, chuckles and relief for the dinner guest who had originally thought that she had been the one to block the toilet. And we did it all before dessert was served.  While we were invited to stay for dessert, we politely turned down the offer and headed off to our new drainage job.

Toilets are fundamentally pretty tough devices, designed to cope with quite a lot of abuse for years on end.  However blocked drains are incredibly easy to create simply by flushing things like wet wipes, sanitary towels, tampons, cotton buds, chewing gum, cigarette butts etc.

But if you find your toilet has blocked up and is overflowing, call out Glasgow’s top drainage firm – JSL Drainage.

We do not charge a call out fee, all our work is guaranteed and we make sure that we cause as little mess as possible and always tidy up after we have fixed the drainage issue.
