Drains seem to have a nasty habit of blocking at the most inconvenient time. Last thing at night, just before you are due to leave for a holiday, you name it! Premier Drainage Services Ltd are here to help with your blocked drains no matter when you need us, day or night.
Your drains could be blocked for many reasons. Sometimes it could be because you have put something down the toilet or sink that causes the blockage, maybe a neighbour has and it backs up to your property, or it may be down to a damaged drainage pipe owing to root intrusion. Quite often, the blockage could have been avoided.
People often disposed of items in toilets and sinks that should have gone into a bin or compost heap. Items such as waste food, fat, grease, sanitary wipes, disposable nappies and a host of other non flushable objects.
The reason these are disposed of down the toilet or sink is often because people don't want to encourage flies by placing them into a refuse bin in the home or garden, but by double bagging waste food and sanitary items, you will prevent flies from gaining access to them and could be saving yourself the worry, inconvenience and expense of a blocked drain.
Whether it's a straight forward unblocking procedure required or a more complex problem, such as tree roots or a damaged pipe, Premier Drainage Services Ltd have an expert team of fully trained and insured drainage engineers who are on hand to solve the problem fast, 24/7.
Using the latest techniques and equipment, our drainage experts will quickly and effectively clean and unblock your drains to ensure they are free flowing and your drains are back to working order in no time.

A rapid response to any drain cleaning issue
There is nothing worse than a blocked drain, it can prevent you from bathing, using the washing machine and can rapidly become a health hazard.

We've all been there!

Inspections prior to drain clearance
We've seen it all! Disposable nappies, huge build ups of kitchen fat, even dearly departed pet guinea pigs who were disposed of down the toilet. Frankly it's a bit of an eye opener what some people dispose of down the toilet. But before we can unblock a drain, we need to determine where the blockage actually is and this is where our drain inspections come in.
Our drain inspections will find the source of the problem and see its exact location, so we can effectively tackle the blockage and give you advice on how to prevent the blockage from happening again in the future and the best way to maintain your drains.
We even offer a preventative routine cleaning service so that emergency drain clearance will no longer be required. By preventing future problems occurring, you can save yourself money and the inconvenience of a blocked drain. We use CCTV drain inspection methods which will identify any problems that may cause a blockage now or in the future.
CCTV Drain Surveys
Our team of drain clearance engineers will deal with any size drain and we have the latest, cutting edge equipment to take on the most serious blockages, quickly and at a very competitive price.
We carry out CCTV surveys to find out exactly what the blockage is, where it is in the pipe and the best way to stop
it from happening again.
Once we have identified the source of the problem, we commence our drain clearance service to return your drainage system to perfect working order. This may involve a simple drain clearance, repairs or maintenance.
Expert drain clearance
Should your drain require unblocking, please call us today. Premier Drainage Services Ltd have years of experience and we provide professional and expert services to help our customers with their drainage problems for both domestic and commercial properties.
Whether you have a blocked toilet or a blocked sink, Premier Drainage Services Ltd will always find a solution. We provide an efficient service that gets to the cause of the problem every time.
When you need drain clearance
Not all drain issues involve a complete blockage, so an overflowing toilet or drain may not be the first sign.
If there is an unpleasant smell coming from your drains, the chances are you have a blocked drain. The smell is often caused by an accumulation of debris from food. Even rinsing off the plates after the Sunday roast before placing them in the dishwasher can cause blockages over time, particularly with fatty foods such as lamb.
Frequently if you can hear an unusual sound as the water drains from your sink, then this is another sign of a blockage.
If the water in your sink takes longer than usual to drain, then this means you may have a build up of debris in your pipes, causing a blockage. The debris will attract more of the same and over time the pipes will become like a clogged artery, eventually resulting in a complete blockage and requiring drain clearance.
Should the water level rise when you flush the toilet, then this is another sign of a drainage issue. This could be caused by items being flushed down the toilet that shouldn't be flushed in the first place. Items such as disposable nappies and wet wipes are the usual culprit.
Blocked sinks are a pain, but a blocked toilet can be a potential disaster. Severe blockages can cause flooding of effluent waste, the smell is awful and you will be unable to use the toilet until the blockage is cleared. The very last thing you want is human waste all over your carpet or seeping through your floorboards or ceiling.
So if you are in need of drain clearance, call Premier Drainage Services Ltd today for a free no obligation quote.
Blocked drains are a pretty common occurrence for one reason or another. We usually think that the reason our water is backing up or the water rises dangerously close to the rim in the toilet when flushed is because a foreign object is obstructing the flow, but this isn't always the case.
Sometimes the drain itself is damaged and requires repairing. A drainage pipe section can move out of alignment causing a blockage, they can crack, causing foul water to make an area in the garden boggy, or roots from trees can break through the pipes, causing a serious blockage.
Before we consider the need for drain repairs, we first rule out simpler blockages. These are often caused by one of the following:
- Sanitary products
- Paper towels
- Dental floss
- Grease, oil or fat
- Cotton wool
- Filters from cigarettes
Once we have eliminated one of the above causes, the chances are that you require a drain repair.
Drain Repair Service
If you have a broken or blocked drain, you need to get it repaired as soon as possible. Premier Drainage Services Ltd will inspect, diagnose and carry out the necessary drain repairs in no time at all. We use CCTV technology to locate the damage, enabling us to repair your drains, getting your water and services flowing properly again.
Our team of drainage engineers are always on hand to repair drains at residential and commercial premises 24/7.
When there is no need to excavate or replace damaged pipework, we offer a service that involves no digging to avoid unnecessary disturbance of the land, this is particularly reassuring if you have an expensive patio you don't want dug up. Using a technique called CIPP (Cured In Place Pipe) patch lining, we make lasting repairs to your drain with minimal disruption. This involves positioning a patch, which is a short piece of CIPP liner which is wrapped around an inflatable packer. Once in place, the packer is inflated leaving the patch to form a new lining to that section of pipe.
Drain and sewage repairs
Some minor blockages can be solved with a thorough clean, but persistent blockages and sewage backups could well mean that you have a collapsed drain. With our state of the art CCTV survey, our drainage engineers can investigate the damage and determine the exact location to fix the issue at its source.
Damp and mold are another sign that you may need a drain repair carrying out. You may have a leaking or collapsed drain and this should be repaired as quickly as possible to prevent further damage or risk to health. Our drainage engineers will diagnose your issue, detect a leak or broken drain and repair it quickly and at a very competitive price.
Repairing Your Drain
Our expert drainage engineers are on call 24/7 to help customers in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex and North London. Should you require our services for broken and blocked drains, we are only a phone call away.
Once we find the cause of your drainage issues, we can offer the best solution for effective, long lasting repairs. Our drainage engineers are experts in tackling drainage problems, from blocked and collapsed drains to compromised soak-aways.
To keep your drainage system in tip top working order, we even offer a preventative maintenance service that will prevent build up of debris that could lead to a blockage and we can detect the start of problems such as subsidence, root intrusion and cracks before they become a major issue.
Roots from trees and shrubs can also be the cause of damage to drainage pipes and we are able to remove the offending roots prior to drain repair in a number of ways.
Chemical root removal method
A quick word about chemical root removal, we don't employ this method! This chemical solution is where a solution of herbicide is introduced into a drainage system and the roots then wither and die. The reason we will not use this method is because we are concerned about any potential risk to rivers and water courses, we always like to consider any negative impact on the environment.
So for a fast, efficient and environment safe drain repair service, call Premier Drainage Services Ltd today.

This is inserted along the length of the damaged drain. It is then moulded into place using air or water pressure and left to cure.
New drainage pipe installation
Sometimes, lining and re-lining existing pipes just will not be enough to fix a drainage issue. This is particularly the case if the drainage pipe has collapsed, making a patch lining ineffective. In cases such as this, a new course of drainage pipe has to be laid.

- Nasty odours coming from drains or plug holes
- leaks, wet patches, mould or dampness
- obvious blockages
- slow drainage from sinks and basins
- damage to the property walls or ground surrounding the building
- subsidence in the vicinity of drains.

Drain and sewer re-lining process
The very first thing we do is to clear any debris or blockages from your drains, and then conduct a comprehensive CCTV survey to identify any further issues to be addressed.
Premier Drainage Services Ltd formulate a detailed treatment plan, which may involve an entire line or re-line of the pipe work. Should the cracks be small or joints are simply misplaced we my opt for a patch repair. In this case there is no need to excavate or replace the damaged pipework, in fact it involves no digging at all. Using a technique called CIPP (Cured In Place Pipe) patch lining, we make lasting repairs to your drain with minimal disruption. This involves positioning a patch, which is a short piece of CIPP liner which is wrapped around an inflatable packer. Once in place, the packer is inflated leaving the patch to form a new lining to that section of pipe.
Finally, we carry out any required work quickly, cleanly and professionally.
While lining or re-lining the drain or sewer may not be suitable in every situation, we can provide other solutions such as traditional excavation and repair work. Examples where lining and re-lining are not an option would be where drains have collapsed. Whatever method we employ to repair your drain or sewer, our ultimate goal is to keep your house and family safe and dry.
For drain and sewer re-lining work at unbeatable prices, call Premier Drainage Services Ltd today for a free, no obligation quote.
Remember also that we offer a 24/7 emergency call out service throughout the Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex and North London areas.
Drain cleaning using high pressure water jetting and descaling
Roots are one of the main causes of blocked and damaged drains. We can find the obstructions using CCTV then we have the specialist equipment required to cut and remove the roots before repairing the pipe. All of this process is usually completed without the need to excavate.
We have the equipment to carry out close circuit television surveys. This helps us to quickly locate a problem and select the best method to resolve it.
Tracing a drain is critical if an excavation is required to fix a problem. We can use sonar to follow the route a drain takes in order to pin point where to excavate.
In older properties sonar is useful to locate drain runs to avoid damage during renovations or other ground works.
Lateral cutting and pipe bursting
If your drains are too damaged to be able to repair without excavation then we can resolve your problem by excavating. This option is more costly so we try to do everything we can to avoid it first.
Pitch fibre - reforming
Moling is a technique we use to lay a new pipe run without disturbing the surface of the ground. We dig a hole at either end and our mole device works its way from one to the other to create a mini tunnel. The new pipe can then be drawn back through the hole and connected.
Sometime even the technology available to us isn't enough and a trial hole is required to establish a problem.
The concept of drain relining is simple, yet ingenious. Basically a lining ‘sleeve’, which is impregnated with a polyester resin fibre and offers quality and strength superior to the original pipe material, is inserted along the length of the damaged drain. It is then molded into place using air or water pressure and left to cure.
