How to clean out blocked downpipes?

Learn how to clean out blocked downpipes with our easy-to-follow guide. We'll show you the tools and techniques you need to remove blockages and keep your downpipes flowing smoothly.

To clean out a blocked downpipe, you will need a ladder, a plumber’s snake, and a bucket. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Locate the downpipe and place the ladder next to it. Climb the ladder and carefully inspect the downpipe for any visible blockages.
  2. If you see a blockage, use the plumber’s snake to break it up and remove the obstruction. You may need to push the snake into the downpipe several times to break up the blockage and clear the pipe.
  3. Once the blockage has been cleared, use the plumber’s snake to remove debris from the downpipe. This will help prevent the downpipe from becoming blocked again in the future.
  4. After cleaning the downpipe, use a bucket of water to flush out the pipe and ensure it is clear. You may need to repeat this step several times to clean the downpipe thoroughly.
  5. Once the downpipe is clean, inspect it to ensure it is clear and flowing correctly. If the downpipe is still blocked or clogged, you may need to call a professional plumber for further assistance.

Cleaning out a blocked downpipe can be challenging, especially if the blockage is severe or located deep within the pipe. If you are unsure how to clean a downpipe properly, it is best to call a professional plumber for help.
