We understand that not everyone is comfortable or skilled enough to carry out do-it-yourself drainage repairs in Bristol. We would therefore, like to fix this for you and allow you to continue with your home routine smoothly.
We’ve seen homeowners run into complex and more costly problems because they ignored some signs that reminded them to repair their drainage. So, we wouldn’t like you to be one of them and that’s why we created this list of signs to watch out for and seek drainage repairs in Bristol?
How to Know You Need Drainage Repairs in Bristol
1. Slow Drainage
When a drain is clogged, the water supposed to go down it lingers for a while before it disappears. Depending on what is causing the blockage, using a plunger will either permanently or temporarily solve the problem. If the plunger is a temporary solution, then we have a permanent one.
We’ll examine the drains and get rid of any objects that could be causing a repetitive blockage.
Backflow refers to the discoloured and often smelly water that comes back up a drain. It can be caused by a clog or sudden changes in the water pressure within the sewer pipes. Modern homes have valves that prevent the occurrence of backflow. Therefore, it’s one of the least likely signs of much-needed drainage repairs in Bristol. If it does occur, the solution lies with us.
The only long lasting solution that we have for a malfunctioning valve is its replacement.
3. Discoloured Pipes
While most pipes run behind walls and underground, there are a few pipes that are visible. The visible pipes can show signs such as:
Both of these are signs of corrosion.
We are equipped with modern pipes that are designed to withstand corrosion and the equipment to firmly fix them in place.
4. Water Stains on Walls Signifies the Urgency of Drainage Repairs in Bristol
We strongly advise against the ignoring of a water stain on a wall or ceiling. Such stains are a sign of leakage. When a leak is ignored, it grows and causes more damage.
The solutions we have for leaking pipes are:
- Replacing the entire pipe
- Sealing the leak
The option we employ is dependent on the extent of the damage on the pipe.
5. Overflowing Toilets
One of the clearest sign for the need of drainage repairs in Bristol is an overflowing toilet. It could be caused by a blockage brought about by flushing too much waste or flushing things that shouldn’t be flushed. A plunger is a remedy for this problem but if it occurs regularly, you need to call us on 01172993369.
We’ll examine the trap as well as the drainage pipes to ensure that there’s nothing blocking the water from flowing normally. Any objects that we notice are blocking the drain will be taken care of.
6. A Foul Smell
A foul smell coming from the drain could be caused by a dead rodent, a blockage or a broken valve.
We have a solution for each one of these occurrences. We’ll examine the pipes to determine the exact location of the rodent after which we’ll extract it. We’ll also remove any clog and replace any broken valves.
