Drain rods when drain pipe seems vertical?

Hi all
Boring question I know - our drain outside kitchen ("clean" water from bath, bathroom sink, kitchen sink, dishwasher, washing machine) seems blocked in that it allows a little water to drain through but overflows when emptying bath for example. We have another drain hole about 4ft away and that seems fine. I bought drain rods to clear through but there seems to only be a drain pipe on the vertical side of the drain that seems to go up (not sure if that makes sense??) so cant get a drain rod through. Looks like sediment in there though. Also cant get rod through from other drain as the hole is too small to fit a drain rod through.

Any ideas before I call a company out and spend lots of money we dont really have

We have two of these, in 30 and 50 feet lengths they work wonderfully. Dh has just cleared a blocked drain for us last week, it was so blocked it would take hours to go down.
