Bournemouth Drain Excavation Experts

The importance of maintaining your drainage system cannot be stressed enough. However, sometimes the damage done to your pipes is so great that they need to be replaced entirely. At No 1 PHD, we carry out quick and efficient drain excavation services that cause minimal disruption and leave your system in excellent working condition. Contact us today if you feel you could benefit from this service.

Our staff are able to carry out all manner of work on drains, from clearing blockages to relining. Thanks to their training and experience, we’re confident in being able to fulfil the needs of all homeowners, no matter the extent of the excavation job.

The Necessity of Fully Functioning Drains

Drainage systems play an integral part in our everyday lives without us needing to pay too much attention. They help ease the flow of waste out of your property so that you aren’t left with unpleasant odours and resting water in your systems. Whether you’re using the toilet, the kitchen sink, or the shower, it is vital to have a fully functional drainage system in place.

However, due to their frequent use, drains can become blocked over time, or worse, permanently damaged due to intrusive materials. While blockages and mild pipe damage can be handled with minimal disruption, this, unfortunately, isn’t the case for drainpipes that have sustained serious damage.

If your pipe has any of the following issues, it is recommended that you have a full drain excavation so as to avoid severe disruption in the future:

  • There are multiple leaks
  • The pipe has collapsed
  • The drain is old and in poor condition
  • Simple repairs or cleaning won’t fix the damage

What Our Team Can Do

If you suspect that there is something wrong with your drains, our team at No 1 PHD can be with you as soon as possible. We operate a 24-hour emergency service, so you can reach us at any time if you’re experiencing a problem. Our staff will arrange a convenient time to get to your site, and once there, carry out a thorough inspection.

Couldn’t have asked for a faster resolution to our drainage conundrum. Nothing was too much for these guys who were brilliant throughout.

CCTV Survey

Whereas drain inspection used to be a very disruptive and lengthy process in the past, we utilise the latest technology to speed up the process drastically. Our Bournemouth drainage team use fibre-optic drain cameras that are fed down your drain and provide images that show the extent of the damage. Once our staff have identified the root of the problem, they will lay out an effective plan of action.

Excavation Work

If the case should be that your pipe needs replacing, our team will discuss the process with you as well as the cost. We will then need to expose the pipe that is damaged by digging a hole in the relevant area. From there we can then replace the drainpipe or carry out the required repairs so that it is back in working order. It is essential to have experts in this situation as excavations can cause unnecessary damage to nearby gas systems in your home if done incorrectly.

If you feel you could benefit from our Bournemouth drain excavation services, be sure to get in touch with us at No 1 PHD. Our team can be reached over the phone today by calling 01425 208031, or via email at, where they’ll reply as soon as possible.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
