Repairing Drains that are Damaged
Assessments to find out whether your drains are damaged and require repairing can be carried out by a local drainage company. Pipe re-rounding services can be a practical solution when old pipes have lost their shape, and uses a hydraulically winched pipe re-rounder to return the drains to their original shape, reducing the likelihood of further damage and blockages occuring. Should a localised repair or no dig method be unsuccessful, drain excavations may be required to remove collapsed pipes and install new sections of drain.
Alternative Drainage Solutions
Connecting drains of a property to a new drainage system are necessary to transport waste water away from the house hygienically. Installation of septic tanks or soakaway systems is often the most practical drainage solution for rural properties located in the countryside as mains drainage systems are usually too far away to be connected to properties. Regular cleaning, emptying and maintenance of drainage systems can prevent overflowing and blockages from occuring.
Clearing Obstructed Drains
If you find a blocked drain around your property, calling a local drainage specialist to clear the blockage can prevent problems with overflowing drains. CCTV can be used by drainage companies to locate and identify the cause of blockages by sending colour images back to a viewing screen showing the affected area of the pipework. Leaves, fat and silt tend to be the main causes of blocked drains but with high pressure water jets or drain rodding techniques, blockages can usually be cleared without too much difficulty.
