Blocked Drain – Thame

“We had tried to unblock a drain at our house for months, but the problem kept coming back. One visit from Drain Doctor High Wycombe Plumbing and Drainage and the blockage has been cleared and the root of the problem identified. Thank you!”  Mr R. – Thame

With a growing range of sink unblocking products available ‘off the shelf’ on the high street, many people with blocked drains try to clear the blockage themselves.

In the short-term self-treated drains can appear to be working properly, however more often than not the blockage reappears as the true cause of the blockage has not been identified.

Thame customer Mr R. contacted the Drain Doctor High Wycombe office after several attempts to clear a blockage from his kitchen sink had failed to work for longer than a few weeks.

Drain Doctor technicians arrived on site for the drain clearance appointment and began by surveying the drainage system with a high-resolution push rod CCTV camera.

Live images from the CCTV camera showed that a section of the drain had cracked.

Roots from the garden had grown in to feed from the nutrient-rich waters in the drain, creating an obstruction that also collected particles of food waste, fats, oil and grease.

Each attempt to self-clear the blocked drain had made only a small impact on the debris however the main blockage and broken pipe needed professional treatment.

Technicians from Drain Doctor High Wycombe used high pressure water jets to clear the debris and to reveal the extent of the damage to the pipe.

A second CCTV inspection showed that a cured in place pipe (CIPP) repair would be appropriate as the damage was not extensive.

The Thame customer was very relieved to solve the problem of his blocked drains and was advised to make an appointment to get his drain repaired.
