Sewer Cleaning & Maintenance Services
Blockages in sewage pipes can be caused by a range of events. Heavy rain and river floods can overwhelm sewers and cause sewage to back up into homes and businesses. As well as producing a very unpleasant smell, sewage contains harmful bacteria and gases that can cause serious illness and even death. It can also damage buildings, the environment and the local water supply, so it’s essential a blocked sewer is dealt with quickly before any serious harm is done.
A professional blocked sewer service
At Drain Doctor, our experienced engineers identify and diagnose the problem before providing the most cost-effective sewer service. Whatever the cause of the issue, we have the expertise and specialist equipment to resolve it quickly and professionally while minimising the risks. Our sewer-cleaning techniques include:
- High-powered jetting – Our high-pressure water jets can remove blockages from your sewers in minutes. They deliver a powerful water jet to remove obstructions and debris without doing any damage to the sewer walls.
- Root removal – Root intrusion is one of the leading causes of blocked and damaged sewers. As part of our sewer service, we use a rotary mechanical cleaning device to remove tree roots and other obstructions that cannot otherwise be moved.
- CCTV drain survey – We use specialist CCTV equipment to inspect the sewer and diagnose the cause of the blockage quickly. We then remove the blockage in the most cost-effective way and use CCTV to check that all other obstacles have been cleared.
Is it your responsibility to clear a blocked sewer?
As a home or business owner, you are responsible for maintaining or repairing any drains or sewers inside the boundaries of your property, unless they are shared with a neighbour.
Sewers are usually located outside property boundaries, in which case it’s the water company’s responsibility to maintain them. However, there are also some privately-owned sewers, as well as cesspools, septic tanks and treatment plants, that the homeowner is responsible for maintaining.

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.
Mrs W Grey
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!
