Drainage services to the retail sector

Retail is a broad label for wide range of businesses and environments. Loosely, it could be described as any operation that depends on the paying public: hotels, leisure, sports, catering, stores, shops, shopping centres, wholesalers, the list goes on.

For retailers, a sewerage incident is bad news. Whatever the business, a blocked toilet, smelly sink or damaged drain can be disastrous, and is definitely not the way to attract new customers, or keep your old ones. You could even be forced to close your doors until it’s fixed.

So, with profit and reputation at stake, you need a partner you can depend on to minimise the risk to your business — like UKDN Waterflow (LG).


Simple. We know what we are about. This is a drainage company you can trust to come to your rescue promptly, round the clock, wherever you are; and to resolve your sewer or drain problem quickly. What’s more, we do it with maximum professionalism and minimum fuss.

Our aim is to keep you smiling, and your tills ringing.

How we do it

We solve wastewater emergencies for our retail clients, day in, day out. Many find our planned maintenance services invaluable to help avoid problems in the first place. We already do this for companies across the retail spectrum, from supermarkets, shopping centres and national chains to fast food outlets, independent stores and boutiques.

What we do

Using advanced technology, we can map and survey your wastewater assets to assess their condition. We may carry out a planned programme of maintenance, cleaning and checking all the drains and sewers regularly to keep the system operating to specification — and that includes interceptors, gullies, aco drains and grease traps. Of course we also repair any damaged or failing pipes. Routine faults are generally fixed immediately, whilst in more complex cases, we will restore flow as a priority before carrying out the full repair outside trading hours.

Our services for retail clients include:

  • CCTV survey and inspection
  • Sewer and drain unblocking and cleaning
  • Drainage and sewer management and maintenance
  • Renovation and repair of drains and sewers

Examples of our work:

Long term fridge flooding in supermarket

A major blockage threatened to close a supermarket chain’s flagship store in the North West, until UKDN stepped in to deal with flooding. We removed the blockage and corrected an original design flaw overnight so that the store was fully stocked and open for business the next morning.

Inefficient maintenance cycle

A high-end boutique retail business was suffering from inefficient maintenance and repeat blockages until we took over.

The client said: “The standard of the report and the professionalism UKDN Waterflow showed was like chalk and cheese compared to companies we tried before. Access for maintenance and downtime from blockages was damaging our reputation with customers, so getting the problem resolved quickly and properly was a great relief.”
