Drains can get clogged by a wide range of material, including leaves, twigs, fat, soil and rubbish. Our high powered water jetting service blasts through these blockages, restoring drain function quickly and efficiently. It’s environmentally friendly and economical. We have the latest technology, to clear both domestic and commercial drains. And our staff are professionally trained and work to industry best practice standards.
We have a great range of state-of-the-art equipment which means we can bring the right size of machine to your drain problem. For houses and smaller properties, that might mean lighter equipment that can fit into a smaller space. For commercial properties, where the blockage might be larger, we can supply machines operating at up to 4,000 psi. That’s pressure per square inch – so these are very high powered jets that can break up even solid blockages.
Dirt, twigs and small leaves can all accumulate in drains, and form into clumps. After all, these are the same materials that birds use to build nests that can withstand wind and rain. More damagingly, roots from large shrubs and trees, can begin to push into the drain, and these can be quite substantial in width. Some of these problems tend to be most common in spring, when plants are growing, and in autumn, when the seasonal leaf fall is blown into drains.
At No1Phd, we offer the full range of drainage services, and if you require, we can also use CCTV to investigate the blockage. Sometimes, if a tree root has cracked the drain piping, drain relining may be necessary, to repair the drain.
Using the same water jet technology that we use to clear blockages, we can also operate the jets at high volume to flood water through the drain. Together, the high pressure and the water volume will thoroughly flush and clean the drain. We get rid of scale, sludge and grease clinging round the pipe, eliminating the source of future problems. After we clean the drain, you’ll find it operates far more efficiently.
Our water jetting service will deal with many fat and grease problems in drains. For major problems, we also have a specialised grease removal service, delivered by a team of experts who have years of experience in clearing this type of blockage from restaurant and domestic drains.
In general, people don’t realise that it’s not just oil and fat poured directly into the drain that can cause problems. Food scraps, milk and other foodstuffs can all contribute. Even soaps made with animal fat can add to the problem. We have huge expertise in this area, and can restore fully functioning drains, so that business and domestic life can continue. Stubborn debris can be removed with our professional high pressure water jetting services.
Our drain jetting service will help to preserve the life of the pipes and drain. Some of the substances building up in the drain can corrode the pipes and joints, so clearing them out will help the system last longer. We can also clean gullies. These can be the source of offensive odours, leaks, and even overflows. If you also take care with what is put down the drain, we can help you to get the problem completely under control.
The old-fashioned method of cleaning drains, is to pour a caustic substance down the drain. This will literally eat away at anything clogging the drain. However, not only are caustic cleaners corrosive and toxic, they have very undesirable effects on the environment. Rivers, lakes and streams can all be polluted by these harmful chemicals. At No1Phd, we’re pleased that we can offer jet washing and other non-polluting ways to clean drains, as an alternative to harsh chemicals.
You can rely on No1Phd to use the latest drain jetting equipment, and we’re able to tackle all jobs, from small houses to the very large drains. Call us now on 08006906777, to find out more about our prompt, professional and friendly drain jetting service.
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.
