What are gully traps?
It is a component or part of the pipe network that receives the wastewater from your home before it is passed into the main wastewater network. They are designed to retain some of the water to act as a trap or a water seal. This seal prevents any ingress of foul air, insects or vermin from the sewers from entering your home.
Generally, these traps are self-cleaning, utilising the flow of the water to rinse out any problem odours or debris.
How to fit gully traps?
Installation should be carried out at the top end of the drainage pipe. The drainage pipe will typically lead the wastewater into a soakaway, sewerage line or mains drainage system. The trap should be embedded in a concrete foundation and housed in a brick chamber. This chamber should have an air and watertight cover.
How to unblock gully traps?
- To clear a trap blockage you will first need to gain access to it. Remove the cover and check first for obvious signs of build-up and debris.
- You should be able to access the trap by hand in most circumstances. Wearing protective gloves, fish out any build-up or blockages that are impeding the proper function.
- For difficult to access traps, drain rods are flexible rods that are used for feeding into pipes and drains to remove blockages. Rods can be fastened together to gain deeper access deep into pipes, to free up deep obstructions in the system.
- Using small, careful pushes, try and break the blockage into smaller pieces. When trying to clear blockages deep into drainage systems, it’s easier to absorb smaller sections of debris, but if you simply push the mass further down the pipe, you’re only making matters harder to resolve.
- Alternatively, you can try pouring hot water into the gully to break down the blockage, or rinse it with a hosepipe or high-pressure washer.
