“The technicians that came to our property were really helpful. They explained the issue with our blocked pipe and what needs to be done.”

Technicians from Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes recently attended a property in the Leighton Buzzard area that was affected by a blocked drain.

From initial inspections the cause of the blockage was unclear. High-pressure water jets were used to clean the foul waste pipe all the way to its connection with the main sewer and all appliances in the property were tested.

When the jetting process didn’t improve the situation a push-rod CCTV camera was inserted into the drain.

This enabled the Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes technicians to identify a section of clay pipe with several cracks and displaced joints. Standing water also revealed that the pipes were also unlevel.

Having identified the problem and explained it to the customer the Drain Doctor Bedford & Milton Keynes technicians advised that two point repairs would be needed to fix the drain.

Point repairs offer an environmentally friendly method of drain repair as the existing pipework is reused rather than replaced.

There is also a significant price advantage to the customer as point repairs do not require digging making them quicker and cheaper than traditional excavation and replacement methods.
