Blocked Drain Plumber

Blocked Drains

What are the early signs of a blocked drain?

  • Offensive smells or gurgling sounds from your toilet when flushing.
  • The toilet can be slow to drain or
  • You may notice the water level in the bowl changing.

Blocked drains are unpleasant, can lead to an unnecessary water leak and can become a potential health hazard.

What are likely causes of blocked drains?

Often the result of tree roots searching for moisture. Initially tree roots can invade through tiny cracks in the pipe but as the tree roots grow within the pipe they begin to catch any foreign objects within the drain system. This begins as a partial blockage within the drain but eventually leads to a complete blockage over time.

Other causes of a blocked drain include grease and fat build up from kitchen sinks, hair deposits from shower, bath or basins and foreign objects being flushed down toilets.

Whatever the cause of the drain blockage Doherty Plumbing Solutions have the expertise to promptly resolve the issue in the home or business, with minimal disruption to you. We have drain cameras available that can accurately diagnose plumbing problems if required.

  • The drain may be severely invaded by tree roots leading to a complete blockage.
  • The drain may be cracked by movement of the ground around the drain or
  • The drain may have collapsed under the weight of heavy machinery or vehicles. This can mean a small section of the drain needs to be repaired or if damage is severe the drain may need to be replaced.

We made initial contact via Doherty’s web site. Without delay the office called and made an appointment. They explained their fees in detail and in the end the charge was exactly in line with what was explained during that initial call. We were called the day before to confirm and Brian rang the next morning to apologise that they were delayed. Delays are inevitable with this kind of work and we appreciated being informed.Brian and his apprentice got to work and found approximately where our storm water blockage was located. They then used a detector to find the exact location and started digging. It turned out that the storm water pipe terminated into screenings at the rear of the property and after many years this was clogged with debris that had washed down from the guttering.They couldn’t repair it on the day due to the commitment of other jobs but were back in a week and fitted a trap. It is a very neat job and whilst the surrounding lawn took a bit of a beating they were as careful as possible and I’m sure that it will bounce back in the Spring.We’ve had a lot of rain over the past few days and I am pleased to report that the flooding that we had been experiencing on the rear courtyard is no longer a problem. We now have a trap that that can be kept clear so that the problem should not recur.I can highly recommend Brian and the team for a high standard of workmanship.read more

Very prompt, courteous and professional service all around- from Janet in the office to George on the day. Impressed with their messaging service to let us know when they were on their way and ETA, as well as detailed invoicing service after the job. Well run business, would recommend.read more

Thank you Brian for coming so early yesterday to check my alarmingly 'musical' pipes! There is a sweet silence now, and I'm so relieved and grateful. Brian is efficient, focussed, gives a thorough quote and explanation of what is done and why. Reasonable pricing too. I felt in very trustworthy and competent hands. It feels nice to support a family business, too. I warmly recommend Doherty Plumbing. :-) Anne Lindsay.read more
