Drain Doctor Bristol has lent a helping hand for a third time by donating its service to help adapt a family home in Barnstaple, Devon for the BBC television programme, DIY SOS.

The programme, which is due to be broadcast later in the year, helps homeowners by improving their property following a change in circumstances. Drain Doctor’s involvement was carrying out a CCTV drainage survey before the rest of the work started on the property.

Drain Doctor Bristol attended the ‘Big Reveal’ to welcome the well-deserved family into their newly adapted home and had the opportunity to meet the family, as well as the host of the show Nick Knowles and his DIY SOS team.

Carl Butterfield, director of Drain Doctor Bristol, said: “It’s been a huge pleasure to have donated our services yet again to another worthy cause. Despite being based over two hours away, we’re thrilled to have been involved in this project and are very touched to have played a part in creating a positive impact on the lives of these amazing families.

“I can’t thank my technician, Andrew Price, enough for the hard work he has put in over the time he was on site. The ‘Big Reveal’ was very emotional for everyone and it was great to meet the family who are now able to start rebuilding their lives thanks to the army of local tradespeople involved.

“We look forward to partaking in more build projects in the future and hope to come to the aid of even more families in need of assistance.”

Drain Doctor currently operates from over 60 franchise locations across the UK offering plumbing services from drain clearance to 24-hour emergency plumbing.
