Guildford Blocked Stack Services

It is not unusual for homeowners to be unaware of what a drain stack is, but it is actually one of the most important parts of a property’s plumbing network. A stack is a vertical pipe that spans multiple floors of a building connecting to smaller pipes that lead to a home’s toilet, sink, bath, shower and so on.

Every Guildford home with an adequate plumbing system will have a stack, so it is important that they are kept clear. The purpose of this pipe is to rid your property of waste water and other substances so that your home is kept clean and healthy. If a blockage occurs, it could put your entire plumbing system in jeopardy. With that in mind, we advise that you get in touch with out experts here at No1 PHD, specialists in Guildford drainage services. For more information about how we can help, give us a call on 08006906777.

What is a Stack?

As mentioned above, a stack is a pipe, or more specifically a drain line, that runs through your home vertically. On the sides of the line, smaller pipes are placed and they branch out to other components within your plumbing system. These components are made up of water fixtures that supply water to various appliances and units around the property.

Your toilet, bathroom and kitchen sinks, dishwasher, washing machine, bath, shower and so on are all connected by pipework, and these smaller pipes lead to the stack. The drain line is responsible for collecting waste water from the pipes and sending it to the sewer lines.

Perhaps before now you weren’t away of what a drain stack was, but you would have seen it, with many being visible on the outside of properties. The plumbing stack, otherwise known as a vent pipe, is generally seen coming through the top of the roof.

We Can Clear Your Blocked Stacks

It is unlikely that you will know first hand if there is a blockage within your drain stack as it is connected to the entire hub of piping. However, it can affect the function of some of your plumbing systems in the household. The symptoms are similar to that of a basic blocked drain, so if you notice that water is draining slowly or you can hear gurgling, then it could be an issue with the stack.

By getting in touch with our experienced team here at No1 PHD, our technician will be able to carry out numerous inspections to discover the root of the problem. We will begin by checking the piping directly connected to your household appliances and systems. Our experts may use a drain camera to check the interior of pipes that may not be reachable.

It will allow us to discover what is causing the blockage, while also assessing the quality of the pipes. Due to age, cracks and splits can sometimes occur, which could lead to further problems within your plumbing and drainage network.

Our technicians always aim to work swiftly, and you can trust in our knowledge due to the experience that we have accumulated over the years. We always intend to minimise disruption when we work, and we will arrange a suitable time to inspect your drains. Rest assured that we work around your schedule, but there may be times when you need immediate assistance.

If this is the case, take full advantage of our 24/7 emergency call outs! Whatever time of day, we will have a technician on hand to answer your call and fix the problem. For more information about our Guildford block stack services, give us a call on 08006906777.

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.
