Reliable and competitive drain repairs service
Sometimes the cause of a blockage can be due to a major failure in the drain system such as a collapsed drain. In this instance there is really no choice other than to carry out repairs or install entire sections. In most cases we will be able to reveal the cause and location of the problem by using our CCTV survey cameras. A CCTV survey alone though can’t always highlight the extent of a problem, as issues could be present well beyond the initial problem encountered.
When we have located the first sign of trouble, if it is not a manhole, we will excavate to reveal the existing pipework and break into it. We will then be able to survey the pipe onwards to check for any issues further down the line. Hopefully the damaged section of pipe is localised to just the area identified allowing us to remove the damaged section quickly and install new pipework and connections.
Warning signs of a major failure in your drainage system could be bad smells, blockages and sewage backups that can’t be shifted, damp patches or overflowing manholes.
It maybe that the cause of the problem isn’t a drain that has collapsed but one that has been infiltrated by roots at a manhole, a join in the pipe or by forcing its way in by cracking the pipework. Where roots have forced themselves into the system and caused damage some form of repair to the drain system is inevitable..
There are often warning signs of an impending problem in advance of a drain failing. Signs of a major failure in your drainage system could be bad smells, blockages and sewage backups that can’t be shifted, damp patches or overflowing manholes. Leaking or blocked drains can cause major problems for your home or business and are best addressed at the first sign of trouble rather than when catastrophe strikes to minimise damage, disruption and inconvenience.
All our work is fully guaranteed. Depending on the cause of the drain failure, we are able to offer a range of solutions including a lining that removes the need to excavate the drain.
