CCTV Technology and Why It Is Important

Welcome to The Plumbing Network

Welcome to The Plumbing Network, a blog about how you can keep your drainage systems in proper working order. This might seem incredibly niche as a topic for a blog, but as someone who has suffered severe damage to my home twice in the last five years, the information that will be discussed in this blog is of the utmost importance!

My Story

Around five years ago the water in my sinks and bath started to drain away more slowly. I didn’t understand what the problem was and tried unclogging the drain through various methods, but the situation didn’t improve. One day, after coming home from a weekend away, my garden was entirely sodden and flooded leading to expensive landscaping and weeks of work.

Around a year ago, after moving house damp began to appear on the ground and walls. I knew there was a leak in the roof and thought it might be related to that, however the damp continued to spread even when it was dry outside. As it turns out, part of my drain had actually collapsed, and the water had been routed to inside my home instead!

From this moment I vowed to maintain my drains (or indeed, have them maintained by professionals), from that point onwards. I’m here to give this information to you, too, so you can avoid what I went through!

Avoid Expensive Professionals

There are some drainage problems which don’t require a professional. For example, a blocked sink often won’t require a full team of experts and all their complicated equipment. It will usually just take some effort, a little time, and the right technique from you!

By fixing your own drains when the problem is simple you can avoid costly callout fees and have everything running in perfect order quicker than they would arrive in the first place.

Recognise Critical Issues

Sometimes, especially when it comes to things as critical as a drainage system, there are jobs which should be left to the professionals. There are a few signs that your drainage might be in a state of disrepair that is beyond your capabilities. Recognising this early and calling in professionals to fix the problem can save you a lot of money and a huge headache in the future.

This blog will cover a few of the problems that will require expert support and can give you some information on what they might do to fix it.

The second time I had a drainage issue, I had a wonderful experience with Gordon Evans Drainage. They kept me in the loop of what was happening throughout the entire process and had the technology to get the job done quickly!

Good Luck!

Drains are something that we take for granted – until they go wrong! I wish you all the best in looking after your drains and hope that you don’t experience the flooding I went through!
