Do I need a drainage engineer or a plumber?

Our drainage engineers (sometimes known as drainage contractors) and plumbers tend to handle different tasks. Our plumbers fix issues relating to the cold water supply and circulation within a property. Our drainage engineers mainly deal with issues where water is flowing out of a property.

When it comes to soil and wastewater problems, our specialist drainage engineers are equipped to fully investigate and carry out the appropriate work. They use water jetting equipment, drain cleaning machines, commercial grade chemical treatments, and have access to a suction tanker that removes wastewater in flood situations. CCTV cameras allow them to locate faults in underground pipes that a plumber won’t be able to find.

Our drainage engineers start out by gaining their plumbing qualifications and gain several years of experience before specialising in drainage. This means they’re well qualified to carry out plumbing work too.

Based on the information you provide, we’ll send the best tradesperson for the job – be it a drainage specialist to deal with a blockage or an emergency plumber to work on a cold-water supply issue.

Customer reviews

  • Came late at night, worked hard to deal with pipe blockage (and flood) in the flat but main blockage was further down i.e. responsibility of building manager - told us exactly what to say to the manager to get it sorted! Many thanks.

  • What a great and fast service from Aspect in our time of need. The drain engineer was with us within 2 hours - knew his stuff - not at all daunted and he got the drain running free again. Thank you ever so much for helping us out. Will not hesitate to recommend.

  • Excellent service. I called this morning at 8am and a technician was out by 12:30. Reece was polite and friendly and sorted out the clogged drain in no time flat. Would absolutely call Aspect again and recommend them highly.

Detecting leaks underground

Our drainage engineers are also skilled at resolving drain issues underground and sewage leaks. They can check the pipe with a camera to look for obvious holes, and employ other methods for hidden leaks. Pressure testing involves bunging a section of pipe; if there’s a drop in pressure, you know there’s an issue. There’s also smoke testing, which reveals the location of minor cracks as the smoke escapes the system.
