"Showed concern for our shops needs"

We received a call from this client at a betting shop in Oxford to say that they needed us as their customer toilets were flooding from the pipework, so we headed off to sort it out.


We dispatched Brian to Oxford and he quickly got to work solving the problem. He found that all the sinks, urinals and toilets were blocked on site, with the exception of the staff facilities, so it was clearly something that needed fixing asap. He found that the facilities were backing up through the urinals as they were the lowest point. He used his kinetic ram to clear the blockage in the toilets, however this did not solve the issue with the sinks and urinals. For these he used his electro-mechanical cleaner on the 4 inch pipework after draining the pipework up stream. This remedied the problems and so he could tidy up and left the site clean and tidy.


The client had this to say about his work:

“Brian came to our shop to fix the toilets. Did a fast and very efficient job. Made us aware of all the problems and also showed concern for our shops needs and customers. Great service!”

blocked WC

We were called out to a property with a blocked WC, so we sent our engineer Tony out to clear it. He investigated the problem, which involved an upstairs toilet. It turned out the issue was caused by the toilet having a lack of fall towards the stack pipe; basically the gradient of the pipe which removes water towards the vertical stack pipe was not as steep as it could have been, which means the water pressure from the flush would need to be quite strong in order to compensate. Unfortunately the water pressure was not significant enough to make up for the lack of fall. These two effects combined meant that using too much paper would lead to blockages, and that in fact was what had happened.

Tony cleared the blockage and spent some time with the customer explaining exactly what the situation was and how to avoid it happening again. 

The client had this to say afterwards:

"Good all round advice on the do's and don'ts for keeping the system clear"
