“We realised something was wrong when the water levels in the toilets rose if the taps were running – so we called Drain Doctor High Wycombe, quickly - blocked toilets are no match for them!”
Mr & Mrs B. – Guest House owners, Thame area
With a busy guest house in the Thame area, it is essential for Drain Doctor High Wycombe customers Mr & Mrs B. that all the plumbing at their property runs smoothly.
When guests complained that the water level in the toilet bowl rose when the basin taps were running, Mr B decided it was time to call Drain Doctor High Wycombe Plumbing and Drainage to come and investigate.
In addition to the rising water levels, guests at the property also reported that they often heard gurgling from the pipes when toilets were flushed and when taps were run.
Gurgling is caused by trapped air in the pipes by a blockage being displaced and pushed through the system.
A CCTV survey showed that there was a blockage at the base of the SVP (soil vent pipe) which directly affected the toilets at the guest house.
High pressure water jets were used to break the blockage down from a drain cover lower down the drain run.
At Drain Doctor High Wycombe Plumbing and Drainage we know that in most cases, when jetted at 3,000psi, water is the most effective and environmentally friendly method of clearing a blocked toilet.
And by attacking the blockage from further down the drain run, we also know that the jetted water will be able to drain away freely rather than add to the problems inside the property.
Thankfully the blocked toilet system was soon restored to full working order and a CCTV check showed that there was no damage to the system.
Mr & Mrs B. have a preventative maintenance plan with Drain Doctor High Wycombe which even includes emergency plumbing.
It gives them the peace of mind that we will take care of the plumbing and drainage at their busy guest house, so they can concentrate on running the business.
