“We had been let down by another company and suffered for so long that it was such a relief to find a company that could help us. Thank you, Drain Doctor Nottingham Plumbing and Drainage.”

Mr. B. – Ilkeston

We were recently contacted by an Ilkeston resident that had been suffering the effects of blocked drains for a number of months.

Despite being attended a number of times by another drainage firm the problem persisted, leading Mr. B. to call Drain Doctor Nottingham to see if we could help.

As soon as he arrived at the property the Drain Doctor Nottingham technician had a lengthy conversation with the property owner to ascertain what the original problem had been and what attemps had been made to fix it.

The symptoms of a blocked drain had been affecting the Ilkeston property for many weeks despite being told that the drain had been unblocked and that no further faults could be found.

Using a remote-controlled push-rod CCTV camera our experienced technician surveyed the drain run and soon located a section of the pipes that were damaged.

There was evidence of tree root ingress in the damaged pipe and also significant remnants of the original blockage. These issues combined to affect the property, causing slow running water and bad odours. Clearly, the original blockage had been ineffectively treated and the drain run had not been properly surveyed after treatment.

Our Drain Doctor Nottingham technician thoroughly cleaned the drain run using high-pressure water jets and then repaired the damaged section of pipe using a cured-in-place drain liner. Once complete, CCTV cameras were used for a second time to inspect the cleaned and treated drain run.

The cured-in-place drain lining method of drain repair does not require costly and time-consuming digging and is highly regarded as a cost-effective, mess-free solution to many broken drains.

Once the repair had been made our technician reassured the Ilkeston resident that should the problem persist he would come back until it was solved. Happily, the only contact our office has received has been a letter of thanks for our work. Mr. B. has recommended Drain Doctor Nottingham to many contacts and is delighted that the problem of his blocked drain is a thing of the past.
