Going the Extra Mile
25th June 2018 - in Morton-In-The_Marsh
We were called out to a house with a blocked toilet. Our engineer arrived and inspected the troublesome toilet and set about clearing it. This was relatively straightforward and he was able to clear it, however after flushing the toilet to test he discovered there was a secondary blockage further down the line. He went downstairs and outside to the manhole in the back garden, where the new problem was occurring. He cleared this blockage and tested the line, finding that it was now flowing freely and clear. This was good news, however he suspected there was a reason for these blockages and that it could be that the line was running flat, not allowing gravity to assist the flow towards the public sewers. He couldn’t be sure of this without a closer look, so explained to the home owner that he would recommend that a CCTV survey be carried out to explore the problem further.
The homeowner was very pleased and said this about him: “Tony provided an excellent service. Professional, friendly and helpful. Thank you so much. P.S. He went the extra mile!”
