Fixing a Blocked Drain in Blantyre for a bookkeeping company.

At JSL Drainage, we are so busy fixing the blocked drains of our customers across Glasgow that it is only natural that we have to bring in help for the likes of our companies bookkeeping.

We have been using 360 Ledger Services in Glasgow for pretty much the entire time that JSL Drainage have existed.  They have been good to us through the years and have always helped us to keep on top of our books and payroll.

So when Peter from 360 Ledger Services called us with a drainage problem in the 360 Office – we finally had a chance to repay our bookkeepers with our own drainage services.

Their head office is in Blantyre.  An area just outside of Glasgow that we know well from so many call outs for similar drainage problems. So we turned up at their office address in the time slot that we had agreed upon and quickly got to work diagnosing the problem.

Waste Water had started to flood into the car park area of the building signalling that there was a blocked drain in the main external drainage pipe of the building.  So all the toilet and sink water in the building was collecting into this main drain pipe and had nowhere else to go.

Because it was so far down the drain pipe, a plunger would not provide enough pressure to push whatever the obstacle was away.

We used our high pressure jetter to blast the blockage away and then used our CCTV camera to inspect the drain pipe and check that the blockage had indeed been removed.

This identified the original cause of the problem.  A concrete deposit.

The building next to 360 Ledger Services had recently had some work done to the front of their office during the drier summer months. We suspect that a concrete mix from the construction work had been washed down the drain gutter and formed into a cement paste. This had managed to harden before any more water was flushed down the drain pipe.

It is a common issue with property that has had construction work carried out.  Building debris is very often brushed down the nearest drain gutter.

This concrete deposit had formed an ideal dam that had over the next month or so collected whatever other debris that was being pushed down, consistently growing in size until the drain pipe had finally became blocked.

Because it was only a small amount of concrete to begin with, its grip on the inside of the pipe was not strong enough to withstand our drain cleaning service and we were able to blast it away.

So we had found the blockage, cleared the blockage and made sure that it wouldn’t happen again.  All in less than an hour.

Because JSL Drainage have invested in our tools and equipment as much as we have in our team of qualified engineers, we are always prepared for the various drainage problems that our customers can suffer from.  In this particular case, our drainage engineer had the right drainage equipment to locate the blockage, unblock the drain and then check that it was properly removed so that there would be no future blockages caused by the same issue.

It is part of our guarantee with all the drainage work that we do.

12 Months Guarantee against faulty workmanship

14 Days Guarantee against the blockage cleared.


It is little wonder why we have such a high review rating on the likes of Facebook, Google, MyBuilder, Yell and  Because we turn up when we say we will.  We fix the problem and we guarantee all of our work for customer peace of mind.
