Mystery of summer Flooding

Mystery of summer Flooding

Mystery of summer flooding

Blocked drains is an issue homeowners usually associate with winter but Sharpe Services gets regular callouts to these sorts of problems in summer.

In this case the homeowners found water pooling near their heat pump. They assumed that might be the issue but it really was a mystery that needed to be solved.

So when Sharpe Services experienced and fully qualified tech arrived he did a bit of forensic investigation and revealed the true culprit.

It was a blockage in a nearby household drain caused by plant roots that had forced their way in through a crack in the pipework.

Sharpe techs are taught to look beyond the obvious. So our tech used his specialised equipment to make sure all the other household drains were clear of possible blockages. He also noticed that this drain’s inspection opening was too low in the ground for easy access so he raised it.

It’s going the extra yards like this that helps Sharpe Services get regular return work and gain new customers through word-of-mouth referrals.

Don’t ignore water issues like this. If untreated, chronic dampness near external walls can have expensive consequences involving rising damp, undermining of foundations and the spread of mould into a house.

Our techs are ready and willing to help solve any mystery plumbing issue you may have.
