Drain repair help for the home
One of the most common reasons for needing drain repairs at home are cracked drains, or even collapsed drains due to subsidence. Ground movement puts extra pressure on the drainage system and eventually something will give. Alternatively a tree root may have infiltrated the drain causing a breakage. Older pipe work, especially on older houses can be susceptible to corrosion.
Our expert drain engineers carry all the tools they need to repair your drains on their first visit. They are also trained to do the job safely and with the minimum of fuss. This means the site will be kept tidy at all times and open drainage systems and sewers will be clearly marked to avoid accidents. We aim to be respectful to your home. Any mess that is made will be cleared away once the job has been completed.
Drain repair for the workplace
We use only the most modern and up-to-date equipment for diagnosing and fixing commercial drain repair problems. By using CCTV to view underground and hard to reach pipes, we can find out quickly and painlessly why drains have been damaged. This means we only have to dig where the problem is, and nowhere else. This also eliminates the need to disturb unbroken pipes. In some cases we won’t even need to dig to repair underground pipes. Small breaks and even some collapsed sewers can be repaired without even needing a digger.
Contact our offices if your premises’ drains need repair, and we will quickly be on hand to inspect your drains and give you an accurate estimate of the damage. The cost may not be as expensive as you think, as we have many techniques to make drain and sewer repair as painless as possible for your company.
We Carry Out Advanced Drain Repair Methods
The most common method of drain repair is called Cured In Place Pipe Lining (or CIPP). A process called “wetting out” prepares a drain liner made of felt with a thin plastic coating. A mixture containing resin is then poured into the liner and allowed to soak into felt. The liner is then inserted into the broken pipe and inflated using either air or water. While the liner is inflated, it is held against the inner wall of the broken pipe, and as the resin cures it sticks to create a new pipe inside the old one.
There are in fact many methods to repair drains, including slip lining, spray lining, roll down, draw lining and pipe bursting. However, the CIPP method described above is by far the most commonly used in the UK today. These advanced techniques mean that homeowners no longer have to endure the mess and noise of an excavation. Without the need to dig, the cost of repairing your drains is also reduced significantly, particularly because we won’t need to be on your premises nearly as long. In fact, because turn around times on drain repair jobs are much quicker than in the past, we can confidently say we will have someone quickly on hand should you need us.
