“The team from Drain Doctor Southampton were quick to arrive at our property and unblocked the drain in under an hour. Exceptional work. Thank you.”
Mr R. – Southampton
With a fleet of 5 vehicles and highly trained service professionals, Drain Doctor Portsmouth & Southampton Plumbing and Drainage has the capacity to tend to the majority of blocked drain call outs within the hour.
Our staff were recently called to the Southampton property of Mr R, who discovered that the drains at the back of his house were blocked when dirty water from the kitchen waste pipes flooded the patio.
Drain Doctor Portsmouth & Southampton technicians carried out a survey of the drain system using remote control CCTV cameras to identify the nature and site of the blockage.
Lumps of fats, oil and grease (FOG) were found to have accumulated and caused the drain to become blocked.
Once located, the FOG blockage was broken down using high-pressure water jets from an access point further down the drain run.
At Drain Doctor Portsmouth & Southampton we never use drain rods to clear a blockage as we don’t consider them to be reliable enough.
We also ensure that our water jets are used beyond a blockage to ensure that the extra water used can run away and not build up at the blockage, potentially causing more problems.
Using these thorough and well-tested methods of drain clearance the Drain Doctor Portsmouth & Southampton technicians successfully cleared the blocked pipe and also checked that the pipes were undamaged.
Upon finding that the drains were now in good, clean condition, our staff advised the property owner about the appropriate disposal of cooking and food waste and left the site around 45 minutes after arriving.
If you suspect that you have a problem with blocked drains at your property, give the Drain Doctor Portsmouth & Southampton Plumbing and Drainage team a call on 023 8212 3988. The Doctor will see you now!
