Mr O’C. – Haling Island

The Drain Doctor Portsmouth & Southampton office was contacted late one evening by Mr O’C of Haling Island in the Southampton area when a burst pipe was discovered inside the property.

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year, our highly trained and experienced service staff were on hand to take the call and a team arrived at the house in less than an hour.

The water supply had been isolated using an isolator valve located on the damaged pipe and the homeowner had mopped up the water that had flooded the floor so that the Drain Doctor Portsmouth & Southampton team could get to work straight away.

The technician removed and replaced the burst section of pipe and tested it to make sure that new seals were watertight before leaving the property with a fully functional plumbing system.

Whilst it was difficult to determine exactly why the pipe had burst in this instance, the most common causes for internal pipes to burst include age-related deterioration and increased water pressure.

Signs that water pressure could be a problem include noisy pipes, dripping faucets and dripping joints. Homeowners should regularly check for these signs and call the Drain Doctor Portsmouth & Southampton office on 023 8212 3988 if any such symptoms are discovered.

At Drain Doctor Portsmouth & Southampton we pride ourselves in offering a friendly and trustworthy emergency plumbing and drainage service.
