Drain Unblocking & Cleaning
It’s a sad fact of life that pipes and drains in homes and businesses can become blocked. Usually, a blocked drain is no fault of your own, although in some cases, items disposed of in toilets and sinks, such as fats, grease and wipes, can cause a blockage. Alternatively, it may be a tree root or damaged pipe that’s causing the problem. Whatever the cause of your blocked drains, our expert team is on hand to help.
Taking care of blocked drains
Whether it’s toilet water rising dangerously high, a blocked sink, bad smells or an overflowing gully, a blocked drain can lead to all sorts of issues. At Drain Doctor, we are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide a professional, cost-effective solution. We can help you with:
- Blocked drains
- Overflowing manholes & gullies

As drain unblocking specialists, our skilled engineers use advanced clearing equipment to remove blockages efficiently. The result is a quick, cost-effective solution to any drainage problem.
The latest drain unblocking equipment
Modern drain unblocking techniques are a million miles away from the DIY solutions that homeowners and business owners might have tried in the past. We have a range of powerful solutions at our disposal that provide a long-lasting solution. That includes:
- Rotary mechanical drain cleaning – This specialist equipment uses a motorised tool to rotate a cable that descales corroded drains and removes tree roots and other obstructions. Any remaining material can then be flushed away harmlessly into the drainage system.
- High-pressure water jetting – If the obstructions are more mobile, high-pressure water jetting can soften and emulsify the blockage or remove it entirely. This technique also provides effective drain cleaning so your drains can flow freely once again.
- CCTV drain surveys – We use the latest CCTV technology to uncover the source and extent of a drainage problem and identify the most appropriate solution. Our CCTV drain surveys can also check that all blockages have been successfully removed.
How we work
We offer both pre-booked appointments and emergency callouts around the clock, so whatever your problem, our technicians will be on hand to provide a cost-effective solution. We will arrive at your home or workplace in one of our branded vans which contain all the tools and equipment we need to quickly diagnose and solve any issues upon first visit.
We also carry out functional tests on the drain to check that the blockage has been completely removed. If we identify a structural issue that’s causing the blockage, we will conduct a CCTV survey of the drain to uncover the extent of the damage and provide a proposal for the most appropriate fix.

Drain Doctor Plumbing gave a speedy efficient service to unblock the toilet at my holiday cottage - and all for a reasonable cost
I would like to thank both Tracy and Brandon for their help and support over a recent sewage spillage. I have just posted a Google review which will explain why I am writing to thank you. My daughter who contacted you is especially grateful for the way in which Tracy went out of her way to make sure we had support. She has been kind throughout. Brandon who came to carry out the task worked with us as to which would be the best way to proceed given the complicated access to the home. He was kind and his advice enabled me to resolve the matter myself. On this ocassion, no money changed hands but I am so impressed by your honesty and customer-first focus that Drain Doctor will be my number one go-to for any problems and certainly the company I refer friends to. A very grateful thank you from us both.
