A drain stack is not something you may hear of regularly, but it performs an incredibly important job within the plumbing of a property. The vertical pipe spans numerous floors within the building and has pipes connecting to it from both sides. These smaller pipes lead to various installed appliances and fixtures within a home, including sinks, shower installations, baths and toilets.
It is essential that the stack is kept clear so that it can carry out its purpose – removing waste water from the property. Blockages and any other issues can put your entire plumbing network under strain, so it is important to have local plumber and drainage professionals inspect your stack. Thankfully, No1 PHD operates in Brighton and surrounding areas, providing an array of services. For more information, call 01425 208031 .
As already mentioned, the pipe, also known as the drain line, runs vertically from the bottom to the top of a building. Smaller pipes are connected to the drain stack and they branch out through the plumbing network and into water fixtures that provide water to multiple appliances within your home.
Without this, your bath, shower, dishwasher, washing machine, kitchen and bathroom sinks would be affected. Each appliance is connected to the water fixtures that come from the pipes connected to the stack, which collects waste water. These substances flow through the drain and into the sewerage network.
The drain line can be seen on the exterior of the building, with the plumbing stack or vent pipe coming through the top of the roof.
As part of our Brighton drainage services we can fix any problems with your drain stack, including blockages. Our experts at No1 PHD provide Brighton blocked stack services so that your drainage system is in tip top condition. We understand that it’s difficult to spot any blockages within your drain stack, but there are certain signs.
Much like unblocking drains in Brighton, if water is draining slowly from your sinks or there’s a gurgling noise coming from the plughole, it could be due to a blockage within the stack. Thankfully, our experts at No1 PHD will be able to identify the problem using a range of equipment and proven methods. In fact, we have the use of a CCTV drain camera that can help us locate the root cause of the issue if needed and appropriate for your blockage issues.
By taking high-resolution images, we can see what has led to the blockage and we can check the condition of your pipe. If we see that the stack has cracks or splits, it could lead to more extensive damage, which may prove to be costly in the long run. As well as dealing with blockages, our professionals provide a soil stack cleaning service, Brighton clients.
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

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.
