The first sign of a drain fault is usually a blockage, evidenced by sewage back-up, wastewater failing to drain away, and a foul smell… Blockages are commonly caused by drains collapsing, cracking, scale build up, or tree root penetration. These blockages, we can clear with specialist drain jetting or root cutting equipment, once clear, we can fully access the damage and recommend a repair.
We’re experts at carrying out no-dig drain relining which is the most cost effective and most convenient method for repairing and renovating damaged drains. We use the latest technology to install a liner inside the existing damaged pipe. The existing pipe doesn’t have to be dug up, and the new pipe lining is strong and long-lasting.
For localised repairs on short sections of pipe we use a patch repair technique, which is extremely effective. The patch is impregnated with resin, inserted into the correct position in the pipe around an inflatable packer, which is held in place inside of the pipe until it sets and creates a secure fix, no need for costly disruptive excavations.
CCTV drainage surveys play a key role in the mapping of drains and sewers in cases where underground infrastructure needs to be identified before a building project can start on a site. Whether it’s a new build or an extension, commercial or industrial, it is vital to know where drain pipes and other related structures are positioned before work starts.
There are many things you can do to make sure your drains stay healthy and efficient so you can avoid the inconvenience and cost of drain repairs.
For instance, think about what you are putting down your drains – avoid flushing baby, antibacterial or makeup wipes. Embossed toilet paper, cotton wool and ear buds should not be flushed down the toilet. Grease, fats, oils, leftover food and coffee grounds should not be put down the kitchen sink. Leftover paint, tile grout and plaster must not be tipped down the outside drain.
An occasional blast of hot water (not boiling) down the drain can help to reduce the build-up of oily residue in the pipes, and there are some gentle household remedies like baking powder, soda crystals and vinegar that also help to keep drains clean gently.
