Are your drains as ready as you are?

During lockdown, many premises will have had no checks on kitchens, toilets, bathrooms or outside drains. All of these need to be in clean working order before you can invite anyone inside, so it’s time to get them checked out.

Drainage checks before you open:

Nobody wants unexpected drainage issues on opening day so make sure your drains are in full working order by following this checklist.

  • Flush each toilet
  • Run all taps (hot and cold)
  • Check if the gullies are blocked or slow draining
  • Check if the gutters need emptying
  • Check for build of leaves/debris in car park drain channels.

How do you know if you’ve got a problem?

If you notice any nasty smells, gurgling plug holes or slow draining water, then there’s a problem brewing. These are the three tell-tale signs that show you need to call in a drainage engineer before the problem develops into an emergency.

Our drainage engineers can identify and fix the problem before you re-open. Putting your mind at ease and ensuring your premises is up and running as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Drain care after re-opening

Once your back up and running, don’t just forget about your drains. Regular maintenance and cleaning can prevent build ups and keep your water flowing.
