A new customer in the Bedford area called the Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes office when he discovered a blocked drain at his property. A technician was sent out and immediately began work to identify the problem.

At first it appeared that a drain was blocked at the rear of the property, however after further investigation our technician discovered that the pumps on the pump pit serving the basement of the property had failed. Water was being removed from the basement but wasn’t being pumped away and this was causing the apparent blockage in the drain system.

The pump system was isolated, enabling the pumps to be removed. Our technician found that debris had found its way in to the system which had clogged the pumps up and was stopping them from working.

After a thorough clean the pumps were refitted and tested. Finally, all the manholes serving the drain system were washed down. The whole system was checked and left in fully working order.
