My drains keep getting blocked

Bathrooms are busy places, especially in the mornings, when the shower, taps and toilet are in constant use. With so much activity going on, it’s easy to miss the tell-tale signs that there’s a problem with the plumbing, especially when the pipes are hidden from sight. Damp feet, wet hair and hot steam all make for a moisture-rich environment, but if you’re noticing extra water or damage to your décor, you might have a leak on your hands.

Hidden water leaks don’t stay hidden forever: if left unattended, the problem will worsen. It’s important to keep an eye out for subtle changes in your bathroom, so you can catch leaks early, before they develop into a burst pipe or even a collapsed ceiling.
