“We know that we can rely on Drain Doctor High Wycombe to treat our plumbing emergencies. Very professional service will definitely use again.”

Mr K. – Operations Manager, Thame

Drain Doctor High Wycombe technicians were recently called to a manufacturing premises in the Thame area on an emergency call. Staff had discovered a flood in the men’s toilets. Sewage was overflowing from the toilets and into the cloakroom.

Arriving at the Thame property, the Drain Doctor High Wycombe technicians were quick to act, using remote controlled CCTV cameras to investigate the cause of the problem.

A blockage was identified in the main drain just beyond the point where the toilet waste fed in. Waste from the toilets was unable to get past the blockage and was forced back up into the building.

High-pressure water jets did little to break the blockage down. A second CCTV inspection revealed that it was caused by a solid mass that would have built up over time, possibly caused by products washed away during the manufacturing process.

In order to fix the problem the Drain Doctor High Wycombe technicians had no option but to excavate the site and replace the blocked pipe. This work took a number of hours to complete however our technicians worked as quickly as possible to minimise disruption to the client.

Closer inspection of the substance that had caused the blockage enabled staff at the business to identify it as a compound used in their products.

Drain Doctor High Wycombe technicians advised the client that this product should not be disposed of through the drains and that alternative waste disposal should be used.

Our staff are highly trained in dealing with a wide range of commercial and domestic plumbing and drainage emergencies.
