As they say, “Prevention is better than cure”

So why wait for an emergency to occur with all the potential mess and damage that can happen.

Call us at Drain Doctor and our plumbers will carry out a site investigation to recommend a planned repair schedule so your plumbing system is kept in full working order

From problem to repair, your local drainage and plumbing expert can do it all. With our professional plumbers available 24 hours a day 7 days a week, always prepared for any drainage and plumbing issues that may occur. Ranging from drain clearance of blocked drains to CCTV Surveys, septic tank services and the maintenance of grease traps. There is no need to worry when you have a planned repair service available.
Blocked Drains
First there was the plunger. A plunger traps a pillow of air, and forces it down a pipe when pushed. When pulled, air is sucked from the pipe creating a vacuum. This abrupt movement can dislodge a blocked drain.

However, when the blockage is further down the pipe, the plunger became less effective. So came drain rods – a plunger with a longer handle.

These methods are unruly and unpredictable; their success is based more on luck than skill. We would rather use something a little more sophisticated when it comes to drain clearance.

That is why here at Drain Doctor we have the latest drain clearance technology and our highly skilled engineers to oversee the use of it, to ensure the best for your drains.

Once your drains have been cleared, we usually inspect them with a CCTV survey camera to give you peace of mind and to identify if there are any further faults in the drain which might cause problems in the future.
Drain Repairs
The nature of drain repairs depends entirely on what is wrong. Often the symptoms, such as a flooding or a bad smell, may suggest several causes. One of our skilled Drain Doctor technicians will have to work out what is actually wrong.

Relatively simple matters, such as minor root ingression, small cracks or unstable joints, can be resolved by using drain lining. Other problems, such as major root ingress or pipes being shattered by surface works, tree roots or ground movements may require extensive excavation and replacement. Our Drain Doctor technicians are fully trained and experienced in all methods of drain repair including drain lining, also known as drain sleeving, and excavation and replacement.

ByA. Thompson
Testimonial #2
Called them out late in the day to unblock a kitchen drain. Ben came within a couple of hours and cleared it within 30 minutes. Great job, good price, will use them again.
BySimon Ballard
Testimonial #3
Burst pipe fixed by Kevin between 12am and 1am. Even though he was absolutely shattered he remained professional and upbeat. Fixed problem and the price for doing so was very fair as another company had quoted almost 5x what we were charged. Brilliant service from what appears to be a very reliable company with great staff.
Testimonial #4
Great job by Kevin. Unblocked my Drain fast and efficiently.

The work that he had to do was not the easiest and he approached it in a professional and helpful way. I thought it couldn't be solved and he managed to do it. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
Testimonial #6
Did exactly what was asked, no surprises, delays or unexpected costs.
