Mr W. – Leighton Buzzard

Office staff at Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes Plumbing and Drainage were delighted to received glowing feedback from a new commercial customer in the Leighton Buzzard area following a blocked drain treatment at his premises.

Technicians had been booked to clear a blocked drain at a small industrial unit and arrived at the property in good time, ready to investigate the cause of the blockage and to clear it as quickly as possible.

Leighton Buzzard businessman Mr W. explained that the forecourt of his property had always been slow to clear after heavy rain and that recently water used for his car washing business had started pooling rather than draining away.

Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes technicians inspected the site to establish the route of the drains and accessed the drain run to carry out a CCTV check using a high-resolution push-rod CCTV camera.

CCTV footage revealed a partial blockage of the drain at a junction of with that of the neighbouring property.

The Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes technicians also established that the angle of the drain run was very shallow.

Using high pressure water jets, the blocked drain was soon cleared. A further CCTV check of the pipes revealed that there was also some damage to the pipes where the blockage had formed.

Debris in the water would have settled around the damaged pipe because the flow rate was slow due to the low gradient in the drain run.

The Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes technicians were able to advise Mr W. about the available options to improve the drainage at his property – to repair the damaged section of drain using cured-in-place drain lining technology or to excavate the drain run and improve the gradient to ensure better flow.

The Leighton Buzzard customer was then left to consider the options and decide what steps to take in his own time.
