Preventing and Detecting Leaks

Leak detection is incredibly important to avoid damage and unnecessary costs. It’s therefore vital that you have an expert company to rely on for such a specialist service. Our engineers are highly skilled professionals with experience implementing the best techniques to detect a leak and prevent further complications like flooding.

From thermal imaging to tracer gas surveys, our specialist team can use non-destructive methods to locate any type of plumbing leak precisely without causing unnecessary disruption or mess in your home or place of business.

If you live or work in a property prone to frequent leaks, there may be a serious underlying cause. For example, leaks can be a sign of a blockage or a collapsed drain, and if your property is pre-disposed to flooding due to its location, it is crucial to have preventative measures in place.

To find blockages or damage that is causing a leak, we can undertake CCTV drain surveys whereby we insert a small high tech camera into your drains to pinpoint the location of the problem, and from there, our specialists can carry out effective repairs. To combat flooding, we can also install state of the art water pumps to detect and remove any unwanted water from below your building.

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!
