“Our blocked drain caused a real mess but the technicians from Drain Doctor Southampton Plumbing and Drainage worked quickly to sort it all out. Thank you.”

Mr K. - Andover

Visiting a property in the Andover area to unblock a drain, technicians from Drain Doctor Southampton Plumbing and Drainage were faced with a large external area that had become flooded with sewage from the blocked pipes.

The property owner had called the Drain Doctor Southampton office earlier that morning when the flood had been discovered and technicians arrived as quickly as they could.

Locating a manhole further down the drain run, technicians raised the cover and used high-pressure water jets to attack the blockage and break it down.

Remote controlled CCTV cameras were used to survey the state of the drains and establish the cause of the blockage.

Images failed to find any obvious cracks or breaks to the pipe, however, the surface of the pipe had begun to delaminate and had become pitted. An uneven pipe surface can cause debris to stick and build up.

Once the CCTV survey had been completed and the standing flood water and waste cleared away, the Drain Doctor Southampton technicians explained what they had found to the Andover resident.

Technicians recommended that a 1m section of the drain be re-rounded and re-lined to prevent any further blockages. Staff from the Drain Doctor Southampton office prepared a quote and sent it to the customer later the same day.
