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

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.
Friendly helpful professional service. They sorted a pipe blockage. Highly recommended.
Called out today after trying cleaning products, plumber, Scottish Water. Came within an hour and cleared within the hour. Many thanks to Wullie and work mate. Very professional.
Noticed water coming up from the manhole cover in the back garden of my new house Lifted the cover to find it full of mostly makeup wipes alongside other stuff. After a wee panic, we called Fife drain doctor. Was here in half an hour. Tried rodding manually with no luck, so out came the big guns (4000 psi I believe he said) and sorted it .Thanks guys
Phoned just after 8:30 on a Monday morning to arrange for someone to clear a blocked drain and the guys were on site within the hour. They dealt with the problem quickly and efficiently.
A big THANK YOU to Alan from Drain Doctor who called to our house to help with our problem recently. We found him to be a very professional and thorough worker - a likeable, sincere person who advised us fully of what needed to be done. He carried out his job awell and put our minds at rest. He is a credit to your company.

Your company was prompt, efficient and basically brilliant. I don’t normally find myself congratulating companies but please take this as a very deserved compliment. More to the point I have already mentioned to people I know how pleased I was with the service from the two plumbers that called, and I would have no hesitation in using your company again. Please pass my thanks to the chaps that called!
