“Fast and efficient service. Thank you for unblocking the drain at our rental accommodation last week. We can always rely on Drain Doctor Peterborough for our plumbing and drainage issues.”
Mrs. M. – Business Owner – Skegness
We were recently contacted by a frequent customer in the Skegness area that had problems with a blocked drain at one of their rental properties.
Tenants reported that the bath and sink were slow to clear and that the shower tray was at risk of flooding as it couldn’t clear water fast enough when the shower was running.
A Drain Doctor Peterborough service technician was sent to the property the same day to investigate the problem.
Using a CCTV camera it quickly became clear that a section of the main drain had cracked and was blocked with roots which had acted like a net and collected other debris within the water.
Using high-pressure water jets the Drain Doctor Peterborough technician was able to clear the majority of the roots but not all.
A small section of the pipe was excavated and the roots cleared away. The damaged section of pipe was replaced and all joints were sealed to ensure that the same problem did not reoccur.
The site was backfilled and the area left clean and tidy. Testing showed that the drain system was now running freely and water in the sink, bath and shower inside the property were clearing quickly.
The property owner was advised to relocate some of the shrubs growing in the garden away from the line of the drain run. Root ingress is a common cause of blockages and damage to drains. Roots are attracted to the nutrient-rich water that seeps out of cracked pipes and will quickly grow within a pipe if left undetected.
