“So what we’ve got here is a normal gully, now the pipe comes from the kitchen then goes into the sink waste gully down there, back in let gully would be the sink waste would come down from the floor inside the kitchen and go into the back of the gully.”

“What I’m going to explain now is how to clean out the gully itself, first you’ll need a pair of rubber gloves, you’ll need to get the actual grid off and I recommend to use a screwdriver, before you get the gully grid off sometimes there’s a lot of leaves on top maybe, maybe a bit of fat from the kitchen sink, you know when you do the washing up.”

“So what we’ll do first we’ll take the gully grid off like so, just put it aside and as you can see it’s not too bad, so what you can do if you see any obstructions as long as you’ve got your rubber gloves on you can put your hand down and clear out any big obstructions you might come across or if you invest in just a plunger if it’s a little bit blocked, can unblock it that way or get some of the bits out of it.”

“What we’ve got here we’ve got a metal gully grid and if ever you find that you actually it is your responsibility to actually replace it yourself if anything goes wrong with it, you can get them from any local DIY store and another alternative is you can buy a plastic one, like so and you’ll find that the plastic ones are a lot cheaper.”
