What drain services do you provide?
There are many things that can go wrong with your drains, and it is all too easy to forget that they need regular care and maintenance in order to do their job properly. In an era where we are surrounded by so many modern conveniences it can become easy to take things for granted, particularly when they provide us with the basic necessities such as clean, safe water. It is important to take good care of your drains before they begin causing trouble for you.
No matter what the problem is, there is always a solution. The most common call we get is for a blocked drain, and there are many ways to go about tackling this. However, the most popular technique of clearing a blocked drain for many drain technicians is high pressure water jetting.
High pressure water jetting, also known as drain jetting, can be used for almost all blockages no matter how tough they are. Water is run through a high pressure hose with a jetting nozzle, forcing the blockage to loosen and come away from the wall of the drain it is blocking. Drain jetting can be used to combat blockages caused by a variety of things, including food waste, foreign objects, and it can even remove tree roots. The hose allows the drain technician to reach blockages that are far away, as well as negotiate the bends and turns in the pipes.
We also provide services for drain maintenance. You may not be aware of anything wrong with your drains, but we highly recommend calling a drain engineer to come out to your property and conduct a CCTV drain survey. Drain surveys are a perfect way of inspecting your drains to find any potential risks or underlying problems in your drains that you wouldn’t have otherwise known about. CCTV drain surveys are particularly useful if you have very old drains, or if you want to find out how old your drains are, as they can identify the signs of worn out drainage systems. Using the latest technology and software, the drain engineer will thoroughly inspect your drains for signs of decay, wear-and-tear, and even much bigger problems like cracks, tree root invasion, or rodents. A problem with your drains will never go away on its own so getting a CCTV drain survey is the perfect way to catch the issue before it can worsen.
Cracks in your drains can have detrimental results if left ignored for too long. They can lead to a collapsed drain or a burst pipe, both of which will result in flooding. Flooding is a major issue which causes a great deal of damage to your property, as well as posing a serious health risk. The bacteria in the wastewater can very quickly contaminate your property, meaning you’re at risk of getting ill if you find your drains flooding.
When a drain collapses, it causes huge problems. Not only does it cause flooding, but it creates an easy access for many things that shouldn’t find their way into your drains, such as rodents and tree roots. It also means that your wastewater isn’t going to be taken away to the sewerage systems, so you’ll find yourself with plenty of waste on your property which can be very harmful. Drains that are very old and haven’t been updated in a long time are far more susceptible to collapsing, and once the drain collapses your best option is to get it relined.
In some cases, you may only need a small section of the system relined, but for the majority of cases we recommend getting the entire system relined. It may seem like a daunting thought but it is far more effective and cost-efficient to do this than to regularly call out a drain engineer everytime a new part of the drainage system collapses. Getting your drains relined also guarantees that you will not be faced with the same problems again, as you will have a completely new system of drains that are more robust and can withstand far more pressure from complications.
