Art of Drainage Services are a professional company that have been unblocking, cleaning and repairing drains for their customers for many years. For over 35 years Art of Drainage have been offering a value for money and reliable drainage service, supplied by experienced, well-trained and motivated drainage engineers, who are the best in the industry for sorting out any drainage problem. Art of Drainage have helped many clients in the domestic and commercial field throughout the historic city of Oxford and with this great service there has also been some great reviews about the service they have encountered. If you would like to know more about what the clients have said, then please go to the review page or you can read about some of the clients we have and in the past.

The Art of Drainage company has seen it all in the industry and nothing will surprise the well-experienced drainage engineers when it comes to cleaning and repairing drains. They come with fully equipped vans and vacuum tankers are on hand for those larger jobs that need a lot of liquid to be cleared. They have been excellently trained and have gained the experience over time to sort out any drainage problem they encounter or request that a client may have e.g. retrieving a really valuable ring in terms of monetary and sentimental value that was lost done the local drainage system or acting quickly to fix some blocked drains at a wedding that was causing a real problem and needed to be sorted before the guests arrived, which had the potential to have ruined that special day for the client's daughter.

Some of the drainage services we supply on a daily basis:

  • Drain rodding - unblocking drains with specifically designed rods
  • High pressure water jetting - using fast flowing water to clear drains
  • Clearing blocked drains, gully's and manholes
  • Unblocking showers, bath, sinks and toilets - the complete commercial and domestic service
  • High-Tech CCTV drain surveying service - to give an overall picture of the whole drainage system
  • Drain cleaning, unblocking, clearing and repairing

Drain Blockage and Clearance

Drains being blocked and needing cleared is our most common task that we are asked to carry out. When the drainage system is blocked and can't be used properly we understand how important it is to get the job sorted and as quickly as possible to avoid any further problems occurring e.g. an awful smell emanating from the drains into the buildings above which could spell disaster for a business reputation if it is for example a restaurant or hotel. Another problem if not sorted quickly is the sewage waste could actually start to appear in the ground above, which would obviously be a huge issue to the people living and working in the area.

What Should Go Into The Drainage System

When it comes to what goes into the drainage system there has been a lot of news recently about wet wipes and the fatberg. In general, only organic human waste, wastewater and toilet paper should go down the toilet and any other material e.g. sanitary products, paper towels, wet wipes etc. should be disposed of properly in the waste bin. Many people believe it is ok to dispose of wet wipes down the drain, but recent research has found that none of the wet wipes are biodegradable, even though the packaging has stated otherwise and this is where the problem can come about and a need to call the team out at Art of Drainage to clear the blockage.

Fat, cooking oil and food residue e.g. meat and coffee grinds can cause a problem if disposed of down the sink on a regular basis, where it can solidify once in the drainage system and completely block the waste pipes. Again, there will be a need to call in the engineers at Art of Drainage to save the day!

CCTV Camera Drainage Surveys

One of the best methods to find out what is wrong with the drainage system in question is to do a drain survey with an HD CCTV camera that is sent down into the drain to check out initially what the problem is. Drain surveys will provide a non-invasive way to check the overall state of the drain and how well it is operating. The camera gives us a full visual view of the drainage system to fully check its condition and can gives us invaluable information on what is going on and if more drastic measures are needed to remedy the situation. Our full colour reports will show the general condition of the drain and the location of junctions and connections, the report will also convey recommendations and costings for any required works that need to be done to clear or repair the issue and if the client is buying a new home this can be invaluable when negotiating the cost of the purchase and to see if there could be any hidden problems later down the line.
