“Thank you to all the staff at Drain Doctor Bedford and Milton Keynes for finding the cause of our blocked toilets. It was really unpleasant, but they dealt with it swiftly and very professionally."

Mr C. – Businessman, Bletchley area

There are no two ways about it. A blocked toilet is probably one of the most inconvenient situations that a home or business can be faced with.

When staff at the Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes office were contacted by Bletchley businessman Mr S., a service technician was sent to his property as soon as one became available.

The toilets at the Bletchley property had become blocked and no amount of plunging or rodding was making any difference to the problem.

On arrival at the address, the Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes technician carried out a CCTV survey of the drains using a high-resolution CCTV camera to try to identify the cause and location of the blockage.

CCTV images confirmed the technician’s suspicions that a section of drain had partially collapsed. This had caused an obstruction to the flow of waste from the toilets which, in turn, caused waste to build up and flood the cloakroom.

The drain needed repairing and the job was immediately priced up so that the customer could decide whether to proceed there and then.

Our technician was given the go-ahead and using equipment carried on the Drain Doctor van, he set about repairing the drain using cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) repair technology.

CIPP drain repairs are a low-cost alternative to more traditional excavation and replacement repair techniques and are also much quicker to carry out.

It wasn’t long before the drain had been repaired and the toilets were restored to full working order, much to the relief of the Bletchley customer and his business!

Collapsed drains are just one cause of blocked toilets. Other causes include the flushing away of items such as tampons, nappies and baby wipes, which can quickly build up within a pipe, and the blocking up of drains further down a run due to the incorrect disposal of food waste and cooking fats.

If you think the toilets at your property are becoming blocked please don’t delay! Spare yourself the inconvenience of a blocked toilet and call Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes today on 01908 849814.
