Should you have a problem with your drain pipes or drain system, a plumber is the tradesperson you should call to help you fix the issue. At Drain Doctor, we have a team of skilled local plumbers who are just a phone call away to conduct a drain pipe repair or collapsed drain repair and resolve the problem once and for all. Using various methods such as modern CCTV technology, our team of local plumbers can investigate and diagnose your issue and carefully repair your drains to the highest standards.

Professional Local Drain Repair Engineers

Our team of dedicated drainage contractors are always on hand to help residential and commercial customers with collapsed drains and drain repairs. Whether you can smell foul odours coming from your drain or there are frequent blockages in the property, call us, your local drainage repair company. We will send a Drain Doctor engineer who is fully trained to tackle the issue.

We can help with drainage issues including:

  • Drain Repair
  • Drain Unblocking
  • Drain Surveys
  • Drain Maintenance
  • Collapsed Drain Repair
  • Leaking Drains
  • Drain Pipe Repair
  • Soakaway Repair
  • Blocked Downpipes

We prefer to deliver a ‘no dig’ service when there is no need to excavate or replace damaged pipework, this is so we can avoid unnecessary disturbances in your local area. Using a technique called Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP) patch lining, we can make long-lasting drain repairs with minimal disruption and excellent results.


Signs That Your Drain Is Damaged

Blockages and Sewage Backups

While some minor blockages can be solved with a thorough pipe clean, persistent blockages and sewage backups may indicate that you have a collapsed drain. With a CCTV drain survey, our drain repair specialists can investigate the damage and determine the exact location to repair the issue at its source.

Damp Patches and Mould

Damp and mould can have a devastating effect on your property, impacting the health of your building and family or colleagues. Damp and mouldy patches are often a sign of drainage issues, and the culprit could be a leaking drain. Using Drain Doctors drain repair service, this issue should be tended to as quickly as possible. If left ignored, damp patches can lead to other, more costly concerns around the home. Our professional drain repair engineers have the experience and equipment to diagnose your issue, detect and fix a leaky, broken drain or complete a collapsed drain repair effectively.

Rodent Infestations

If you find signs of a rodent or animal infestation in your property, whether that is holes, chewed up items or animal droppings, it is worth considering that a poorly installed or broken drainage system may be the cause. With our CCTV technology, we can pinpoint the entry point used by the rodents and complete a drain pipe repair to cover this entry and prevent further infestations.

Subsidence and Structural Damage

Subsidence is a significant threat to the structural safety of your property, so it is crucial to get to the bottom of the cause as quickly and effectively as possible. CCTV surveys are the ideal solution to establish the cause of subsidence, and with professional equipment, our team can investigate the issue and determine the most suitable and effective solution. As a specialist drain repair company, we will get to the root cause of any issue.

Smelly Drains

Foul smells are one of the most unpleasant signs of a blocked or damaged drain, so if your property has a noticeably bad odour, you shouldn’t have to put up with it any longer. Our smelly drains blog post offers some quick solutions you can try at home. If however, the cause is a deep lying pipe blockage that requires removal, your drains will likely need unblocking for the smell to permanently go away. If it’s a collapsed drain, the smell will likely reappear until the issue is fixed. We can determine once and for all, whether you have a broken drain and promptly complete a collapsed drain repair with minimal disruption.

Paul P

The Drain Doctor operative, Dan Hayler was extremely good. He took time to explain the situation and did a fantastic job of solving our problem. He is knowledgeable and courteous. I would highly recommend him and this company. Thank you for an excellent service.

Mandy Stuttard

Seriously brilliant company. Anna was so helpful and great on the phone in the booking. Clear job pricing, rather than hourly charges. We have had two other plumbers out to solve this issue without success. They used a camera to find the blockage which was a ceramic piece from previous building work. Can't recommend them enough!

Kathy Pavid

Very pleased with Drain Doctor and operator Dan. Had concerns about partial sewer main blockage and possible sewer pipe misalignment. Camera survey carried out first to identify issues, then complete high pressure clean, then follow up camera survey. First class professional and friendly service - would most certainly use again.

Roy Tubbs

Great service from Anna and her team. Dan carried out the work needed and was polite, friendly and explained what needed to be done.

Tracey Ridgers

Dan turned up within an hour even though it wasn't an emergency. He was professional and very helpful and even identified a hidden chamber that was also blocked. Great quality for a very reasonable price.

Nick Armitage

Called this morning for plumbing emergency. Attended within half an hour and problem fixed. Would highly recommend.

Katie Crawford

Can't recommend Graham Forbes and Drain Doctor enough! 3 hours graft and skilled use of some pretty scary high pressure equipment, camera tech, to break a fiendishly located fat and soap berg in the corner of our kitchen pipe work.

Andy & Katy Travers

Really quick service, called on a Sunday morning, with us within an hour with the job done quickly. I hope not to need my drains sorted again, but if I do, I'll be calling Scott!
