The Importance of a Functioning Drainage System

Whether you’re washing up in the kitchen sink, having a shower, or using the loo, having a functioning drainage system is essential. Unfortunately, due to their frequent use, drainpipes can often become blocked or suffer other damage. Issues with your drains can cause untold disruption to your home. As such, it is vital to have problems dealt with as soon as possible to avoid further and costly repairs.

There are ways in which blockages can be avoided, such as being aware of what materials cause build-ups. Such items include:

  • Hygiene Products
  • Food Waste
  • Soap
  • Toilet Paper
  • Other Foreign Objects

While homeowners can take steps to avoid blockages and damage, it is not always possible to prevent problems arising. As such, there are some key signs to keep an eye out for that will indicate an issue with your drains. Unpleasant odours tend to arise from utilities attached to drainage systems if blocked, and leaking from any pipes is a clear indication of damage. If you’ve noticed any of these signs, it’s imperative that you get in touch with our team today.

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.
