In the majority of cases we get called out for, we’re able to repair the pipework and get it working optimally again in rapid time.

However, there are cases where that’s simply not feasible and the required approach is to use our drain excavation service. Bristol property owners need not worry now that they have found No1 PHD. We will work quickly and cleanly, always paying your property the utmost respect and treating it as if it were our own.

Here at No1 PHD, we have all of the tools and equipment available that enable us to offer a digging service unlike any other. While there is always going to be a certain level of disruption during the excavation process, we aim to make the undertaking as stress-free as possible for you.

It’s true that drain excavation in Bristol is a last resort that won’t be undertaken unless absolutely necessary. Before we determine whether this course of action would be the most suitable option for your exact situation, we will carry out a thorough inspection and get a full overview of what’s happening.

Our Process

Before any digging can happen, we will most likely carry out a CCTV survey using our high-quality drain camera. This will give us a full overview of exactly what’s happening inside the pipes and whether the damage is truly irreparable. In some cases, drain lining may be sufficient to get the issues eradicated.

Should we determine that drain excavation in Bristol is absolutely necessary, we will start by digging a hole to expose the pipes. Once the job’s complete and the pipes have been successfully replaced, we will refill the trench and leave everything tidy.

Bad leaks, serious blockages and tree root ingress are the main problems that end up destroying pipes to the point where they need to be excavated and replaced by our Bristol drain excavation experts here at No1 PHD. If you have recently noticed any of the aforementioned issues at your property, then don’t wait any longer to get in touch with us for a survey.

We will agree a convenient time to arrive onsite and carry out a thorough inspection. Being proactive is definitely the way to when it comes to property maintenance and especially with regards to your drainage system. Our trained experts will be able to identify potential problems before they even arise, so you can stay one step ahead and avoid drain excavation services if you reach out to us at the first sign of trouble!

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.
