“Our blocked drain was soon cleared by your technician. Thank you for sorting the problem out so quickly.”

Mr & Mrs R. – Risborough

Whilst there are many causes of blocked drains in both domestic and commercial properties, one of the most common is the incorrect disposal of cooking waste via the kitchen sink.

Cooking grease and fats harden as soon as they meet cold water (usually in the bend in a waste pipe) and can quickly build up to form an impenetrable barrier that stops water flowing away.

Risborough couple Mr & Mrs R. had recently moved home and soon discovered that the sink waste pipe was blocked – the first time that they tried to empty the sink of washing up water it failed to drain away.

Following a couple of attempts to unblock the drain themselves, Mr R. decided to call in the professionals and booked an appointment with a Drain Doctor High Wycombe technician.

Once on site, the Drain Doctor High Wycombe technician used a high-pressure water jet to attack the blockage from a drain cover further down the drain run. This meant that the jetted water could run away freely from the blockage.

A short while later the solid mass of fats, oil and grease had been broken down and could be removed from the drain.

The drains were then checked for damage using a high-resolution push-rod CCTV camera. Images showed that there were no further issues and the Drain Doctor High Wycombe technician cleaned up the work site and prepared to leave.

Mr & Mrs R. were grateful that the blockage had been cleared so quickly and that there were no additional problems.

At Drain Doctor High Wycombe Plumbing and Drainage we always recommend that a Home Buyers’ CCTV Drainage Survey is carried out prior to the purchase of a property.

This will give purchasers a clear idea of the condition of the drains before they commit to buy and can also provide peace of mind that no hidden surprises are lurking in the drains.
