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

Superb work and excellent service from Paul.
Lovely polite man, great job!
Called them at 6pm yesterday to book a call for today to unblock a sewer pipe. They emailed this morning to say they were on their way; turned up bang on time. All the work and costs were explained in advance. An hour later everything was spotlessly clean and running clear. Great service. Well done guys!
Delighted with response and service provided (by Kevin) today. He took time to find out what I thought the problem was and comprehensively checked the drainage etc before setting about clearing the problem and ensuring everything was working properly. I will keep the contact details handy if I ever need work done and won't think twice about recommending Drain Doctor.
Darren from the Oxford team did a fantastic job in determining the problem (including finding a hidden drain cover, a drain not marked on bldg drawings), and resolving it quickly, efficiently and keeping me informed throughout about what he was doing. I was a little sceptical that, when booking, we wouldn’t have even a ball park estimate until the job was examined. But the eventual fixed price was built from a pricing menu and was, given the quality of service, good value. I e no hesitation in recommending Drain Doctor, and you should hope that it’s Darren that turns out.
Came out within 1 1/2hr of the call. Sorted within the hour. Great service.
Mr D Frary
