    "Hi. This is circumstantial. There is no one answer for this question. It depends on what has caused the blockage i.e. general soft blockage, wipes, collapsed drains or tree roots etc, how long the blockage has been building up, are there any accessible manholes (assuming it is external drain blockage) and the experience, equipment and charging structure of the company you decide to use."

    "Depending on the cause of blockage could take anything from 10 minutes to a few hours. Also depending on how quick and experience the person is at doing the job."

    "This all depends on the drain and what is blocking it.
    Could be a easy fix with just rods or may need to be dug out and new drains put in"
