Our plumbing and drainage services

We provide a wide range of plumbing, heating, and drainage services to our clients.  Some of the common tasks we perform include:

  • Unblock sinks 
      A blocked sink can be very inconvenient in a home or place of business.  Fortunately, our plumbers are sink unblocking experts!  We use a variety of specialist tools to make light work of blocked sinks.  Our tradesmen also have the expertise required to safely unblock your sink without damaging the property’s internal plumbing or fixtures.
  • Bad smells from sinks
      Sinks can sometimes develop bad smells — which can quite embarrassing if you have guests over.  Most bad smells are caused by a dry P-trap, sewer line issues, or venting problems.  One of our talented plumbers will quickly identify the source of your sink’s bad smells and implement a permanent solution.
  • Replace sink traps 
      Sink traps are responsible for trapping debris that has drained from the sink, preventing it from forming a blockage deeper in the plumbing system.  They also prevent sewer gasses from passing into the home.  If your sink traps have become damaged or are quite worn, we can replace them for you — ensuring your property’s plumbing system remains in good shape.
  • Unblock drains 
      Blocked drains are a more serious problem than a blocked sink or toilet.  That’s because the blockage has moved further into the plumbing system.  Fortunately, our skilled professionals have decades of experienced dealing with blocked drains.

      We will use our specialist tools to quickly identify the source of the blockage and remove it.  Our team will also tell you what caused the blockage, so you can take steps to prevent it from happening again.  If your blocked drain has been caused by a collapsed pipe or root intrusion, we will offer you a range of solutions for repairing it.
  • Unblock toilets 
      Having a blocked toilet in your home or place of business is very inconvenient and unhygienic.  We Do Plumbing Ltd can quickly fixed your blocked toilet with our specialist tools including drain rods and water jets.  We offer a quick response 24/7 service for blocked toilets so our clients don’t have to deal with this frustrating problem for too long.
  • Plunge toilets
      If you only have a minor toilet blockage, one of our plumbers will simply use a plunger to fix it.
  • Chemical clean of drain run
      Some severe drain blockages require the use of chemical cleaners.  These cleaners will dissolve any sludge and debris in the drain.  It is important to have a professional perform chemical cleaning of your drains to ensure the job is performed safely.  Our experienced tradesmen understand which types of chemical cleaners can be safely used on different types of drainage systems.
  • Running new drain liners
      Drain lining is a very cost-effective way to repair a drain that is cracked or broken.  We use Cured-in-Place (CIP) drain liners, which are made from a polyester-based felt resin.  They are placed inside the pipe to provide a new smooth surface free of cracks or broken sections.  They are very durable liners that can tolerate high water pressure without becoming dislodged or experiencing corrosion.
  • Installing new drain runs 
      Our team often installs new drain runs for new and established buildings.  We will ensure that your new drain runs function perfectly and are built to last!

If you require hydro scrubbing in Canterbury, Ashford and surrounding areas, contact our team via  01227 687 068 or through our our contact form.  You can also read on to learn more about the benefits of hydro scrubbing.

How Does Hydro Scrubbing Work?

Hydro scrubbing uses a high pressure water jet to remove gunk from your property’s drains.  The high pressure jet will remove soap residue, hair, oils, mineral deposits, food, roots, ice, sand, mud, and other debris.  Most hydro scrubbing devices use more than 3,000 psi of water pressure which cleans drains very effectively.

Before hydro scrubbing can be performed on your drains, they must be inspected.  One of our engineers will run a camera through the drain to determine its condition.  If it the drain is in very poor condition and has many large cracks, hydro scrubbing may not be viable.  If that is the case, we might have to consider other options like chemical cleaners, drain snaking, and Cured-in-Place (CIP) drain liners to seal up the cracks.

The main advantages of hydro scrubbing include:

  • Cleans drains thoroughly
      Hydro scrubbing gives your drains a very thorough cleaning, removing very tough substances like lime scale, clumps of hair and soap.  It will also remove the bacteria that is pooled up in your property’s drains.  In most cases, hydro scrubbing is far more effective than a chemical cleaner.
  • Removed roots 
      Hydro scrubbing can cut through any thin roots that have entered your drains.  If the operator has identified any heavy roots causing a large blockage they will use a snake into the drain to tear up them up before hydro scrubbing.
  • Improves flow of drains 
      Using a hydro scrubber can dramatically improve the flow of the drains from your property.  This reduces the risk of any future problems occurring including blocked sewer lines, backed up sinks, and foul sink odours.  Hydro scrubbing pre-emptively removes any debris that might eventually clog up your drains and lead to expensive repairs — saving you money in the long run.
  • Environmentally friendly
      Hydro scrubbing doesn’t use any toxic or caustic chemicals, which makes it an environmentally friendly solution for cleaning drains and sewer lines.  It is an excellent solution for properties close to sensitive locations like nature reserves and waterways.
  • Hydro scrubbing is sanitary
      Traditional methods of cleaning sewer lines have a higher risk of contaminating your property.  Even the act of plunging a toilet or using a chemical cleaner carries the risk of contamination.  Hydro scrubbing is much more sanitary because all debris is pushed down the sewer line using high pressure water.  There is no risk of chemicals or sewerage entering your property.
  • What won’t hydro scrubbing fix?
      Hydro scrubbing won’t fix issues that are cause by broken pipes.  For example, if you have a large crack in one of your pipes which allows dirt and large tree roots to enter the pipe, hydro scrubbing will only be a temporary fix.  Additionally, hydro scrubbing won’t be able to move heavy debris like large rocks and bricks.

  • How do CCTV drain inspections work?
      CCTV drain inspections can be used for both residential and commercial premises to assess the cause and extent of drainage issues.  They can also be used to determine if drains are in good working order.

      CCTV inspections can be performed with a digital push camera (a camera attached to a cable) or a remote control digital camera that is driven through a drainage system wirelessly.  Both devices transmit footage back to a digital console with a screen.  The footage transmitted back to the console can be recorded to ensure nothing important is missed during the inspection.  The engineer will control the device in real time to ensure they obtain the necessary footage.  CCTV camera inspections are useful for a number of reasons:
  • Identifies roots in drains 
      Tree roots are one of the most common causes of drain blockages and cracked pipes.  Roots constantly try to enter pipes to gain access to the nutrient-rich materials that drains contain.  Tree roots can be very powerful and are capable of cracking certain types of pipes.  Once tree roots have gained access to a pipe, they can block it or cause debris to build up.

      A CCTV inspection helps you identify the location and severity of root ingress into your drains and sewer line.  You can then take the appropriate action to deal with these roots.
  • Identifies drain issues 
      CCTV inspections are also useful for determining the following drain issues:

      • Incorrect installation A CCTV inspection can be used to ensure the drain or sewer network is correctly installed.
      • Displaced pipe joints CCTV is useful for finding pipes that are not connected to one another correctly. Identifying displaced pipes early on will allow you to address the issue before it causes a blockage.
      • Blockages Drainage blockages are simple to locate with CCTV.
      • Pipe cracks and collapsed pipes CCTV makes it simple to find cracked pipes and collapsed pipes. It is much easier to repair these issues if they are identified with CCTV beforehand.  
      • Leaks CCTV technology is useful for finding areas where waste water or sewerage is leaving your pipes and entering the ground
      • Identifying the cause of foul vapours CCTV can also help you identify the cause of foul odours coming from your drains and sewer.
  • When are CCTV drain inspections useful?
      There are many situations where having a CCTV drain inspection performed is very useful including:
  • When buying a new home
      Purchasing a home is a very significant financial decision that requires extensive due diligence.  Using CCTV to inspect the drainage and sewer systems of the property helps you determine their condition before buying the property.  
  • When selling a property
      Vendors can use CCTV to ensure their drainage and sewer lines are in good working order — avoiding any delays during the sale process.
  • Build over survey
      If you are going to build on your property but are unsure about the layout of the drainage system, a CCTV inspection can be helpful.  It will determine the precise layout of sewers and drains on the property.
