A Reliable Emergency Plumbing Service
At Drain Doctor, we have a network of emergency plumbers who operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week across the UK. Whether you have a blocked toilet at home or a burst pipe in your office, we can provide round-the-clock, expert assistance to assess and repair any plumbing issues you have.
Our highly-trained and certified plumbers carry all the tools they need to attend to the vast majority of callouts in their branded Drain Doctor vans. That means they can be with you in a hurry to reduce the risks of damage to your property and put the most appropriate and cost-effective fix in place.
Common emergency plumbing problems
Plumbing problems can happen when you least expect them, whether it’s at the weekend, at night or during the busy festive period. When something goes wrong, it can also escalate very quickly. What might start as a small leak can cause serious damage if you do not have expert assistance on hand. Our emergency plumbing service can deal with everything from dripping taps and leaking cisterns to burst pipes and floods.
Common situations you may need an emergency plumber for include:
- Blocked drains
- Leaking pipes
- Tap, stopcock, ball valve and syphon repair or replacement
- Toilet, sink and bath blockages
- No hot water
- Wastewater or sewage backing up into your property
- Frozen or burst pipes
- Blocked soakaways and septic tanks
- Flooded properties
But that’s not an exhaustive list. If you have a plumbing problem that you’d like to be fixed in a hurry, please don’t hesitate to give our emergency plumbers a call.
How do you turn off your water supply?
If you are in an emergency plumbing situation, knowing how to turn off the water supply to your home or business could reduce the damage significantly. In your home, the stop tap is usually located under the kitchen sink, but it may also be in an airing cupboard or under the floorboards near the front door. Turning the valve clockwise will prevent water from passing through and potentially reduce the damage to your home. If the internal stop tap is not turning or shutting off, contact our emergency plumbers immediately.
Fast, friendly emergency assistance
When you call a Drain Doctor plumber, we will have an experienced, highly trained engineer with you as quickly as possible to provide expert assistance. Their first job will be to assess the situation and minimise the potential damage to your home. Once the immediate situation is under control, they will discuss your options with you and suggest the most appropriate and cost-effective repair. In most cases, they will be able to fix the problem immediately. However, for larger jobs such as drain excavation, the work may have to be completed at a later date.
There are also no callout charges or extra charges for visits outside normal working hours, and prices are agreed with you before any work begins. So, if you’re in need of emergency plumbing assistance, get in touch with Drain Doctor today.

I highly recommend the Drain Doctor. Jason was very professional and worked hard to unblock the drain. No hidden fees.
Drain Doctor came out quickly and sorted the problem in half an hour but the charge was extortionate.
Warstock Community Centre
Extortionate price for a 30 second job. Delay tactics used to make it look like he had been at the property longer. Swearing a lot, every 5th word was a swear word. Lacking in respect and cleanliness, thought it was fine to touch everything with dirty gloves and prop up his sweeping brush on my living room carpet. Pushy. Not impressed, will never use again. Will not recommend.
Town centre, Newport
Brilliant service from the first phone call to the completion of the work. Rang on Thursday, visited by Tom on Friday and cover replaced on Monday by Andy. Always kept up-to-date with the progress with getting the required parts. The engineers were on time and the area left clean and tidy. Thank you.
