“Great service. The technician from Drain Doctor High Wycombe cleared our blocked drain and downspout with no delays and left no mess behind. Thank you.”
Mrs C. – Thame
Thame resident Mrs C recently booked an appointment with Drain Doctor High Wycombe Plumbing and Drainage to clear a blocked drain at her home.
Having recently moved to the property, Mrs C soon discovered that the water was very slow to clear from the utility room and kitchen sinks.
Recent heavy rain also highlighted that the guttering and downspout was probably blocked as rain water overflowed from the guttering and was not draining away through the pipes.
Drain Doctor High Wycombe technicians arrived at the property the next day and began work jetting the drain run that served the affected rooms at the rear of the property, using high-pressure water jets which spray water at 3,000psi.
The jetting process quickly broke the blockage down and cleaned the drain run at the same time.
CCTV cameras were used to inspect the condition of the drains and images showed some cracks in the pipe which would need fixing.
In order to repair the drains, the Drain Doctor High Wycombe technician recommended that the drain be relined and organised a quote for the customer to consider.
Meanwhile, a second Drain Doctor High Wycombe technician set about cleaning the blocked downspout and guttering at the property using Guttervac, a boom-mounted vacuum equipped with CCTV to enable a thorough clean from the safety of ground level.
To guard against unpleasant surprises with new houses Drain Doctor High Wycombe Plumbing and Drainage recommends its Home Buyers CCTV survey service, which can alert purchasers to any drainage issues and potentially negotiate the cost of remedial works with sellers.
In this instance, the Thame resident was very pleased that the drain could be unblocked so quickly and that she now had confidence in the guttering too.
Before leaving, both technicians carried out checks to ensure that their work had resolved the problems and made sure that their work sites were clean and tidy.
