Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM)
A plumbing or drainage issue is never something a business wants to deal with. Blocked drains and persistent leaks can be expensive to fix and lead to downtime and reduce the productivity of you and your team. However, untreated plumbing and drainage issues will only escalate and become more serious over time.
Plumbing and drainage problems that are not identified and resolved quickly can potentially lead to problems such as damage to walls and floors, mould, electrical faults and even structural damage that could put the health and safety of your employees at risk. That’s why, when it comes to managing your commercial plumbing and drainage needs, we recommend a programme of planned preventative maintenance (PPM).
What is planned preventative maintenance?
Planned preventative maintenance, also known as PPM, is a scheduled routine to ensure all the infrastructure related to the drainage, plumbing, guttering and grease traps in your business is inspected and maintained at regular intervals. Rather than waiting for drains to become blocked, grease traps to fill or guttering to become damaged, we preempt any problems and put a fix in place at the first opportunity.
Not only is PPM more cost-effective than expensive repair bills, but it can also avoid potentially lengthy interruptions to business operations and damage to the assets of the business itself. Every business is different and has unique plumbing and drainage requirements, so we will create a unique PPM agreement to meet your specific needs. That may include:
- Urinal and toilet pipework
- Internal and external drains
- Maintenance and emptying of grease traps
- Descaling of pipework
- Clearing and maintaining septic tanks and sewage treatment plants
- Clearing drains leading to soakaways
The benefits of planned preventative maintenance
There are a number of compelling benefits of planned preventative maintenance for your business:
- Reduce the number of emergency callouts to your site
- Minimise disruption and downtime
- Meet health and safety legislation and environmental standards
- Have peace of mind that your business is well maintained
- Reduce the risk of problems caused by adverse weather conditions
- Maintain your infrastructure in a cost-effective way
- Manage your budget more effectively

Amazingly accommodating, professional and successful
I have to say that I had a major 'toilet' emergency today and to be honest to me it was the end of the world. I'm no plumber and to me I was in a hopeless situation. Well that was until Dr Jon from Drain Doctor arrived! It turned out to be a big job, but with Jon's clear knowledge and experience I knew I was in safe hands. All I can say is Jon turned my toilet nightmare into a happy ending. Professional, knowledgable, witty and fast. Would highly recommend Drain Dr Oxford to one and all.

Your technician Jamie was extraordinarily good. I would like to use myself and your company for further use. I would like to praise Jamie for the outstanding work that he did. I was most impressed with the service I was provided by Jamie and Drain Doctor...Well done Jamie..keep up the good work.

Just had a visit from Alex, what a thoroughly lovely young man. polite, and very personable . He gave me a no nonsense simple explanation of the problem and how much it was going to be. He then got on with it cleared up after himself and it was all sorted. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again if I needed something done in a hurry. thank you Alex. 10/10
I was charged over a hundred pounds to plunge the bath, they did not not clear the blockage in the pipes which was the job required. Then recommended over three pounds further for a longer term fix which I said no to. I got a different drain company/plumber in and he said they had not cleared any of the pipes and he cleared them at a fraction of the cost.
I just thought I would let you know just how pleased we were with your service. Martin Cotton, Phil and Brian were a real credit to your company. They all worked really hard and were cheerful and optimistic over finding the leak, which was not at all obvious. It was a very difficult job but they were all very professional, and I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. A credit to your company.
I write to say the recent problem I had with the blocked drains was dealt with by your firm “Drain Doctor”, was of the highest professionalism, from Anne in the office who took my call, to Chris our own ‘Doctor’, who worked very hard, a very pleasant young man a credit to your company. I shall recommend you to anyone I know who has a drain problem.
