Anyone who lives at one property for a long enough time is eventually going to experience some drainage issues. One of the most common of these that we get called out for regularly in the area is a blocked toilet that either isn’t flushing properly or is an overflow emergency.
At No1 PHD, we specialise in working on blocked toilets, blocked drains and blocked stacks around the clock. We never close our doors because we know that plumbing and drainage emergencies can happen at any time of day or night and a fast response is always required!
So, how exactly can someone tell that it’s time to hire the experts for a toilet inspection? There are several early warning signs to look out for that may indicate you have a drain blockage or another type of drainage issue on your hands.
The first one is a slower run-off time in your toilet than you’re normally used to, meaning that the water takes ages to drain away or doesn’t drain away properly at all. If the toilet has started overflowing, then the clog is severe and you should call us out immediately as we offer an residents an emergency 24hr drainage callout service. Call us out quickly before any property damage can occur!
With many drainage issues, another commonly reported problem is a strange unpleasant odour emanating from your pipes, usually near a blocked sink. If this is something that you’ve noticed recently, reach out to us sooner rather than later.
Our professional team; No1 PHD drainage experts will arrive onsite promptly, inspect your toilet as well as the toilet cistern and get to the bottom of the problem quickly. You can have piece of mind knowing that we’ve worked in the industry for many years now and accumulated a lot of valuable experience in that time!

Over the years, we’ve worked on various types of plumbing and drainage blockages in many different properties all over the area for both residential and commercial properties.

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.
